Bring on the food!
After 10 days of saying “no” to any carbs or sugar, Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez celebrated finishing the challenge with a feast.
“It’s finally over, it is finally over!” the former Yankee, 43, exclaimed on his Instagram story on Thursday while eating a French fry and sitting in front of multiple pizzas and sweets.
He also posted a photo of the massive meal captioned, “Top this. How did you break the #10daychallenge?”
However, according to the “Today” show — which has its own stake in the challenge as the couple enlisted Hoda Kotb to join in — Lopez’s entrance back into unrestricted eating wasn’t as gluttonous.
“I was dreaming about what I was going to eat but the truth is you can’t fit that much down,” the singer said Friday, revealing that her first carb in 10 days was a few bites of oatmeal. But she admitted of her boyfriend, “Alex went nuts.”
The “Limitless” singer also posted a glam tablescape of a slightly healthier- looking feast including fried plantains, rice, meat and Brussels sprouts on her Instagram story.
“Worth the wait,” she wrote.
Kotb, who is still in the middle of the diet, has yet to be deterred, even when Carson Daly offered to donate $5,000 to her favorite charity if she ate a sweet on air. The morning host stayed strong and decided not to give in but donated the money on her own, which Daly matched — and helped get Lopez’s attention.
“When you stand for something, you make beautiful things happen,” she wrote on Instagram of the exchange. “Alex and I will match your donation @carsondaly @hodakotb! A lot can happen in 10 days.”
Daly, who was looped into the challenge by Kotb last week, bailed a day later to make chicken pot pies on the show alongside his sister in honor of their late parents.
