Jessica Alba has one of the most admired bikini bodies in the world, thanks to a low-carb Paleo-inspired diet and CrossFit workouts, CHF reported.

Surprisingly, the gorgeous Alba claims she has plenty of body flaws. "My legs I'm not as excited about all the time, but I wouldn't cover up my stomach," Jessica told GQ.

This isn't the first time Alba has spoken of her (perceived) body flaws. The Latina bombshell previously confessed she has cellulite and a muffin top.

Celebs Do Low Carb Diets and CrossFit for Weight Loss

Still, there's no denying Jessica has one of the fittest bodies in Hollywood, thanks to an organic low-carb diet and circuit-training workouts that incorporate CrossFit.

Alba's CrossFit coach is fitness expert Yumi Lee. Lee is married to CrossFit athlete Ron Mathews, who trains "True Blood" star Joe Manganiello. Manganiello maintains his ripped physique with the low-carb Paleo diet and CrossFit.

Similarly, country superstar Tim McGraw credits CrossFit and the Paleo diet for his unbelievable 40-pound weight loss and rippling 8-pack abs (at age 47!).

Alba, 33, recently reprised her role as the sexy stripper Nancy Callahan in the film, "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For," and worked out intensely to get in shape. Jessica did rigorous dance workouts that lasted from two to five hours a session. When she's not training for a film role, Alba does yoga, sprint intervals, CrossFit, spinning, and strength-training.

Jessica Has Family History of Obesity

Alba's low-carb organic diet that features low-starch vegetables and fruits such as blueberries, and she avoids processed food. Jessica, who has a family history of obesity, began cooking at an early age to take control of her diet.

"I started cooking for myself at 12 because a lot of food my family ate was processed," she said. "I wanted fresh. I eliminated microwave foods, things with too much salt, and tried to eat more natural food, things that were cooked in a kitchen as opposed to a factory."

Alba, who shot to stardom in 2000 after starring in the TV series "Dark Angel," is widely considered one of the hottest women in the world, but she's uncomfortable with her sex-symbol status.

"I know that my looks were my path into Hollywood, but I never really enjoyed the kind of attention that comes with the [sex-symbol] image," she said. "I think the more we try not to have that unrealistic ideal, the happier we’ll be."
