The Gwyneth Paltrow Diet

Gwyneth Paltrow is no stranger to controversy. She spends a huge amount of her public time talking about healthy living, while puffing away at a cigarette. She warns about avoiding eating disorders while appearing in bikinis that flaunt more ribs than curves. Now she has published a book, “It’s all Good” that discusses her special approach to dieting. And yes, her children follow this diet as well.

Gwyneth credits her diet journey on a stroke that was later diagnosed as a panic attack. Following this event, she eliminated dairy, eggs, sugar, coffee, corn, wheat, soy, meat and fish from her diet. This “elimination diet” does permit nuts (she loves almond butter), rice and lentils.  Oh, and wine.

She is convinced that gluten is a poison for many of us.  This has been great for
people who are truly gluten-intolerant or suffer from celiac disease. Because of Paltrow’s fame, eating gluten-free has something of a celebrity halo. Hope that it lasts.

The Gwyneth Paltrow diet features a lot of fruit juice. She regularly conducts a juice cleanse to rid her body of toxins. Given her limited diet, where do these toxins come from?

Is it possible to be healthy on such a limited diet? Only people truly obsessed with reading ingredient labels can hope to create a balanced diet within Gwyneth’s guidelines.  You probably don’t have a personal chef, nor access to exotic foodstuffs, either.

So can the Gwyneth Paltrow Diet make you look like Gwyneth? Nope, not a chance. Could it provide a (temporary) diversion from your non-movie star life? Sure, why not?
