Jennifer Lopez, 49, has just completed a 10-day stint of cutting out carbs and sugar. The actress and her boyfriend, Alex Rodriguez, 43, committed to the challenge together and upon completion the pair looked incredible. In her latest Instagram story she said: “It’s day 10, we did it, we’re here. We still have the rest of the day, but I’m feeling pretty good that we can finish.” J.Lo also said the challenge hadn’t been easy.
“Alex and I have struggled through. Anybody who stuck with us through the whole 10-day challenge, congratulations.”
In a video shared a week before their challenge came to an end, J.Lo’s boyfriend said he “couldn’t wait” to eat some buffalo wings.
He told Instagram fans: “I can’t want to eat a huge pizza and buffalo wings when this is over.”
Jennifer also admitted to feeling “hungry all the time”.
She said on Instagram Stories: “So it turns out, when you don’t have sugar and you don’t have carbs, you’re really hungry all the time.”
J.Lo later showed fans her favourite snacks on the diet were cucumbers, red peppers, yellow peppers, tuna poke, teen beans, canned tuna, and sugar-free jelly.
