‘I’m riveted [by the Taco Cleanse],’ she said of the 30-day plan created by four ‘taco scientists’ in Austin, Texas. ‘I can see that being something.’

However, the cheese the former Friends star was concerned about isn’t on the menu. The diet book, which debuted in December and is already sold out, consists of 75 recipes for vegan tacos, which means meat and dairy are off limits.
‘I already ordered the book on Amazon!’ Jennifer announced at the end of the interview.
However, her interest in the trendy diet plan isn’t that surprising. Jennifer is known to wax poetic about tortillas during interviews. She is also a regular at Marix Tex Mex Cafe in West Hollywood.
‘It’s cliché but it would be a Mexican meal,’ she once told Stylist of what she would choose to be her last meal. ‘It’d be chips and guacamole, quesadillas, enchiladas, a big tostada salad. And nachos.’
Genius idea: The unique eating plan was created by Wes Allison, Stephanie Bogdanich, Molly R. Frisinger and Jessica Morris, four self-proclaimed ‘taco scientists’ from Austin, Texas
But it will be interesting to see if she actually tries eating tacos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
The star has one of the most enviable bodies in Hollywood and is known for choosing balanced meals over fad diets.
According to the book’s description, readers will learn how to make their own tortillas and fill them with everything from beer-battered Portobello mushrooms to tater tots, which may be of interest to Jennifer.
Last year, she told Self that she loves making nachos and fries the chips herself. ‘Just take a tortilla, cut it into triangles, and throw ‘em in coconut oil,’ she explained.

Unsurprisingly, the new diet book is attracting a lot of attention, with many people taking to social media to share Jennifer’s enthusiasm and dub the eating plan the greatest thing to happen in 2016.
Former reality start Spencer Pratt jokingly tweeted: ‘I’m on day three of this taco cleanse and have only gained like 10lbs,’ while Patricia Lopez added: ‘I’ve never been so excited to start a cleanse.’
‘Begin with a breakfast taco, the most important taco of the day,’ the book promises. ‘Even if you do nothing else, your mood will brighten in just 24 hours.

And while The Taco Cleanse doesn’t appear to make any promises about weight loss, Jennifer believes the book’s scientists may be on to something – and that just adds to its appeal.
