“I started to give myself a break, allowing yourself to have pasta, a sandwich. Everyone’s very afraid of the bread basket, and I’m no longer afraid. As long as it’s all done in moderation,” said Anniston. Since allowing carbs back into her life, Anniston admits that her body is aware of the change and loving it. “THere’s something my body appreciates about having carbs, like, ‘Oh, thank you! Why are you depriving me of things I love?’”
Still, the star ensures she exercises daily and has often talked about how she is a fan of intermittent fasting. Her morning routine often sees her do a morning workout before a cup of coffee and collagen. Pilates came into her life by way of a back injury sustained during a workout, but Anniston says she’s never felt better thanks to putting less stress on her body during training. Reflecting on her injury, she said: “When I threw my back out, I was like, ‘Maybe it was that lunge twist squat move.’ We can’t just do one simple move. We try to add four moves to one. I haft been able to run, which is my love. I’m going to slowly start incorporating that into my workouts again.”
Whatever she’s doing, it seems to be working. Just recently, Anniston stunned in the Friends reunion special, with many fans wondering if the star has been drinking from the fountain of youth as she hardly appeared to have aged a day. If there’s any takeaway from Aniston’s interview though, it’s to be kind to yourself. Don’t fear the bread basket!
