Jennifer Lopez on Diet: Pint of Ice Cream Would "Make Me Throw Up"

by at . Comments

No sweet tooth splurging for this girl. 

Glamour UK's latest cover star, Jennifer Lopez, is opening up about how she keeps her fabulous figure in tip-top shape. 

The 44-year-old (yes, 44) mom explains that discipline and balance is just a part of who she is and that applies to her diet philosophy

“Mentally, I’m always thinking about it. I’m OK looking this way, but at the same time that ambitious, determined girl inside me is like, ‘Come on, let’s be in the best shape ever and really show everybody," she revealed. 

But like everyone, sometimes she just wants to take it easy:

"Then the other side of me thinks, ‘Let’s just relax on the beach chair," she added. 

Binging on junk food, though, isn't in Jenny from the Block's vocabulary. 

“I’m not one to over-indulge. It doesn’t make me feel good. Some find it comforting to sit down and eat a whole pint of Häagen-Dazs, but that would make me throw up," the superstar singer said of her eating habits. 

Lopez also discussed her personal life, including what she's looking for in a romantic relationship. The hot mama is currently dating dancer Casper Smart, who is 18 years her junior. 

“The dream is to have a balance where you feel you could relinquish control from time to time and still be taken care of. It’s about finding a relationship that has enough good stuff to outweigh the bad, because nobody’s perfect, right?”

Sure, nobody's perfect, but J. Lo seems pretty darn close.
