The secret to Jennifer Lawrence's stunning figure includes burgers and chips! The personal trainer for everyone's favourite Oscar nominee Jennifer Lawrence has revealed the secret to her stunning figure - and it includes burgers and chips!


Dalton Wong, author of 'The Feelgood Plan: Happier, Healthier and Slimmer in 15 Minutes a Day ', confessed that he would often go out for burgers and fries after training sessions with J-Law.

"We would do high intensity workouts in the mornings, such as cardio, and then relaxing stuff in the evenings like yoga," Dalton told Healthista. "Some days I would just take her to have a massage."

Dalton revealed that during their training, he made sure Jennifer was "still able to go out with her friends and still live a normal life."

"There is a time and a place for high intensity, there is a time and a place for stretching," he said. "I couldn't exhaust Jennifer so much that she felt so sore at work the next day, my job was to make her feel better, fitter, and stronger, so that she could work better."

The Hunger Games actress has previously talked about being able to enjoy her favourite foods while staying in shape.

She wrote in Dalton's book: "I could never live on a diet. Dalton taught me how to eat, move and live a delicious but healthy life. I will always thank him for that."

Wong claims that he didn’t need to change her Jennifer's diet, he just needed to educate her on how to keep her eating habits balanced. "It’s not about starvation diets," he says, "it’s about eating protein, a lot of vegetables, colourful foods, and foods that are dense in nutrition, like greens." He also taught her "why you need to have healthy carbohydrates, and why it’s not good to have processed foods and refined sugar."

He also says that there are times when high intensity training is not the answer, and may in fact cause more stress.

"When you go to the gym it should make you feel better and make you happier, not make you feel worse", he explains.

"If you’re stressed at work, and had planed to do an exercise class that is high intensity, your body might not be resilient enough to cope with it."

Wong adds that it’s important that "you listen to your body, and figure out what type of exercises work for you."
