Jennifer Aniston has credited intermittent fasting with helping her to stay in shape.

The Friends actress abides by the 16:8 fasting diet, meaning she goes without food for a whopping 16 hours and only eats in a strict eight-hour period.

“I do intermittent fasting, so no food in the morning. I noticed a big difference in going without solid food for 16 hours,” she told Radio Times magazine.

Jennifer went on to explain that she starts her day at 9am, and when she’s not fasting, she has celery juice for breakfast. The 50-year-old will then meditate before heading out for a rigorous workout.

Intermittent fasting, also known as the eight-hour diet, is said to assist weight loss, control blood sugar levels and boost brain function. No foods are off-limits during the eight hours you’re allowed to eat, but followers of the diet insist that no junk food is consumed and urge people to be careful of binge eating.

Most devotees of the diet choose to skip food in the mornings and eat protein-rich meals from 12pm until 8pm daily.

Jennifer’s The Morning Show co-star Reese Witherspoon is also a fitness fanatic – hitting the gym up to six times a week – and recently revealed she often turns to her pal for advice on nutrition.

“I just have a green juice and a coffee in the morning. Jen knows so much about health and fitness that I always defer to her. She’s great at wellbeing advice,” Reese gushed.
