Jennifer Lopez Gave Up Carbs & Sugar to Prep for Her Role as a Stripper


You still must be exhausted
from Sunday night. I am. Yeah, I am. Just the whole, like, ramp
up to it was like, oh, god. Yeah. Yeah. But it was great. It was great. It was a lot of– A-Rod looked like he was– he looked like he had never
seen a rehearsal of that. Because he was just like,
oh, my god, like afterwards. No, he didn’t, actually. He came to one the day before. But once you see it
with all the costumes– Right –and everything, it’s just
a whole different thing. Yeah. Speaking of costumes. Yeah. That’s how you keep
him at a distance– Yeah. –with that hat, because– He’s like, I’m going
to have to, like, walk 40 yards away from you. I’m like, I’m sorry. I know. You just have to lean back
like that with that attitude. He’s a good sport. But you were– oh, my god. Jennifer, you were
incredible at the Grammys. Thank you. It was like– Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. [APPLAUSE] [MUSIC PLAYING] Oh, yes. Work. Go, hey! Hey! And then there’s that. And there’s that– Na-na-na,
na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na. [LAUGHING] On a piano! On a piano. On a piano with heels. I know. Don’t you think, I
could slip and fall? Yes. But then I think, wouldn’t it
be cool to dance on the piano? Yeah. So I just go for it. Yeah. Yeah. It was incredible. And then there was
a costume change. There was two costume changes. Yeah. I was like, OK, in five– how much time do I have? Like, [INAUDIBLE]. We can get three costume
changes in there. I was watching
someone, like– under– I was watch– because I knew– Yes! –the dance– Did you see it? I was watching someone
scramble from the piano. Listen, I hate that
they got that shot. Like, who goes to the back when
they know that I’m changing? Right. Like, don’t go back there. Right. They’re like, oh, let’s
go back here and– Yeah. –shoot this, the girl
crawling under the piano to change her shoes. Yeah, it was– Yeah, it’s all right though. It was fine. We have to see a little
bit of the magic. Yeah. It’s real. Yeah. It’s live. But it was unbelievable. You just– Thank you. I just– you never– Thank you. I say this to you
every time I see you, but you’re just like
the hardest working and most entertaining person. Like, your show in– Thank you. –Vegas was incredible and
every time I see you, so– Thank you. Yeah. You’re just– Thank you so much. Thank you. And you’re 49. I know. Thank you. I mean, and you’re 49. I know. Say– no, say it again louder. And you’re 49! Yes. I have a big birthday
coming up this year. Yeah, you do. I do. Yeah. Well, we’ll find out what’s– It’s nuts. I still– anybody else
still feel like you’re 16? Yeah. Yeah. I do. I do. I do! I do, too. I– Yeah. I don’t think that it– I’m like, I feel like
I’m in my– like, 26. Yeah. Yeah, I understand. When you hit 60, though,
you think you feel that and then it’s like, you
have to go to bed at 9:00 and you have to– and everything, you’re more
tired than you’ve ever been. Of course. Of course. But you take such
good care of yourself. You did this 10 day challenge. I did. You and A-Rod both. Yes. And it was no sugar and no– No sugar at all and no carbs. No carbs. Yes. And have you done that–
do you do that often? No. I’ve never done it before. My trainer, Dodd Romero,
challenged us, you know, because I’m getting
ready for this movie that I’m going to
do called Hustlers. And I have to play a stripper. [CLEARING THROAT] And so– I know. Yeah. I know. So, you know, I’m
sure that the outfits are going to be– so I’m,
like, getting ready for that. And he’s like, you know
what, let’s do something. Let’s, like, take it to–
because I’ve been working out. Right. You know, I work out a lot. I try to stay healthy. And he’s like, let’s
do something to, like, move the needle a little bit. And he said, you know
what would be great? Let’s just cut out–
because he knows I love– I’m a sugar and carb– like,
that’s most of my diet. Yeah. And he’s like, let’s
just cut it out. I was like, completely? Like, cold turkey? He’s like, yes. For 10 days? 10 days. It was really hard. Yeah. And you get a headache
too when you stop sugar. It’s a really tricky thing. Not only do you get
a headache, but you feel like you’re in an
alternate reality or universe. Like, you don’t
feel like yourself. You realize that you’re
addicted to sugar. Yeah. Like, and you’re thinking– I’m thinking about
it all the time. I’m like, “When I
can have sugar again, I’m going to have cookies and
then I’m going to have bread and then I’m going to have
bread with butter and then I’m going to–” And I’m
just, like, thinking– But does it get better
towards the end? Was it harder in the
beginning or does it get harder at the end? I’ll tell you this. It was really hard
in the beginning. And it was like, the
discipline, I just– I was like, it’s only 10 days. Come on, you can do this. And then it gets, like, a
little hard in the middle. And then by the
end, you’re like OK. Then when you go
back to the sugar, you don’t want it as much. Yeah. And I was– he said,
let’s go off for five days and then we’ll go back
on for 10 more days. And I was like, you know
what, I want to do it again. Wow. I wanted to do it again. So it’s something
that you, I guess, get used to a little bit. Well, when you–
I saw you do that. And so I told our chef– I said, I want no
carbs, no sugar. Please don’t do that. And the very next night
I said, I need carbs. Yeah, I know. I mean– It’s nuts. I couldn’t do it. You really, really need it. And you feel like– but what
happens is it takes down the inflammation– Right. –right? A little bit. So all of a sudden, you start
feeling, like, really small– Yeah. –and less swollen almost. Right. And it feels good, so– Yeah. And then you get addicted
to that feeling too. Yeah. I’m going to try to do that.

  1. I love JLo, and wish the media pushed HER more instead of the shallow, fake and air-headed Kardashian's. She is not only a much better role model, but it is clear she is actually an intelligent, classy, motivated and REAL (down to earth)woman who both young AND older can relate to.The only thing that seems to motivate the Kardashians is money and everything having to do with 'looks.' In other words, shallow. Keep doing what youre doing, Jennifer, because..from one (straight;-)woman to another, you got it going on!

  2. lo zucchero specie quello bianco raffinato(và sostituito con miele) è l'alimento più acidificante per l'organismo che si trova in commercio …i carboidrati dipende dalla farina e dal fatto che viviamo in un campo di forze esploso in nucleare e in un campo elementare fortemente privato di ossigeno..inutile fare tanti giri di parole così come siamo messi adesso non avremo scampo e probabilmente se continuiamo con questo paradigma porteremo il pianeta alla stessa sorte di mallona

  3. You are sooooo LUCKY to know Jenni!! She's a keeper . NEVER let her go!! Be GOOD to her!! BLAZE green MEDICINE YA'LL!!

  4. All jlo said was true when u quit sugar and carbs coz I did it and I’m loving it 😍 thanks jlo for inspiring us 🤗

  5. Jlo you look amazing! I'm going on 5 months very low carb ( keto) and no sugar! It gets easier and you feel so good after the initial week! I also gave up coffee since I didnt feel like I needed it anymore.

  6. I've been eating zero sugar and 20 net carbs per day for the last 10 1/2 months. It is amazing what happens to your body and your relationship with food. As someone who used to have an unhealthy addiction to food and binge eating, it is amazing to have a healthy relationship with food for the first time in my life. I will never go back to eating any other way, this is just a new way of eating for me, and it works. Some don't like it or can't do it and that is absolutely okay, but for me, it has literally been a lifesaver. I am healthier now than I ever have been in my life!

  7. Keto diet with no carbs is the way to live longer…. you were born in a state of ketosis its carbs that are not natural.

  8. What money can do though. If i have her money no stress and all I can look like her too just saying. 😂

  9. She's right the inflammation goes down and if you have pain that goes away. Sugar is POISON. When I quit sugar and carbs I felt amazing and the pounds dropped and pain minimized tremendously.

  10. Oh shut up. Sick of these people. There is nothing special about these morons. There’s no reason they deserve anything more than anyone else. I will never worship these morons. For what prancing around and lying for a living. And lounging on the beach. She looks young because she doesn’t work 9 to 5. She doesn’t stress about life. She doesn’t work a labour intensive job. For the love of god get past the looks. Humans like everyone else

  11. I know what she is talking at the end. I had to cut out thing and I felt smaller then I kept going and became a lot smaller.

  12. Ok am going for that no carbs no sugar for 10 days! I am not a sugar person so that I will survive but omg bread? Rice? Ohh lord ehm ok lets go jlo style!! Starting 1st of July

  13. Do the Whole 30 diet for 30 days straight. I'm in week 2,no sugar, grains or dairy. It's hard but I can do anything for 30 days. But… I still don't look like JLo on full carbs & sugar.

  14. People keep in mind that Jlo is extremely rich and has a chef, personal trainer, did some minor (enough where everyone can’t notice) physical adjustments through the needle , and has veneers.

  15. Money makes you happy and you feel confident about yourself. Look at all the celebrity they all talk the same perfect.
