Jennifer Aniston’s and Courteney Cox’s Diet Revealed

Eating the same meal every single day for 10 years? Sounds a little like Elvis; or even Einstein with that outfit. Quirky or not, it was a fact of life for the ‘Friends’ female-threesome: Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow.

The Baby Food Cleanse, created by celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, entails eating 14 servings of pureed food every day, with a normal healthy dinner to cap things off. So if the diet was created by a high-profile trainer, one would think someone is doing it. It’s just not Jennifer Aniston.
