Find out why J. Lo has teamed up with BodyLab—a company that makes unique protein blends formulated to help women lose weight, and improve muscle tone and strength
If you have a body crush on Jennifer Lopez, you’ll want to know this: The secret to a sleek, sculpted physique like hers is protein. And science backs that up: Making protein about 35 percent of your daily calories will help you lose weight, reports the Journal of Applied Physiology. And eating one high-protein meal a day isn’t enough, found another study in the Journal of Nutrition. Spreading your intake of the nutrient throughout the day is the best way to improve muscle tone and strength. So what’s J.Lo’s go-to protein? BodyLab, a company that makes unique protein blends formulated by women, specifically for women, which contain no added creatine and are not spiked with potent testosterone boosters.
The BodyLab line also includes supplements like Thermodynamic Total Burn, Endurance Boosting Deep Tissue Oxygenator, and their super popular 7-Day Ultra Fast Slim Kit ($30 each; bodylab.com). Plus, the brand’s site provides support and motivation to help you maintain an active lifestyle. You’ll find recipes for foods like healthy fries or veggie chili, easy ways to track your calories, step-by-step cardio and strength-training workouts, as well as fitness gear suggestions. You can also interact with other fit-minded users to find their favorite ways to get in shape.
"In all of my work—my music, my films, my book, my foundation—I always strive to inspire women to be the best and happiest versions of themselves,” says Lopez. “I joined the BodyLab family not only because of their commitment to creating great health and fitness products for women, by women, but also because of their approach to the holistic lifestyle. It's not a solution-in-a-bottle. It's not a fad diet. It’s part of a health regimen that makes your metabolism work as hard as you do. It’s a way to love your body.” Plus, find out more about how J.
