All Gwyneth Paltrow needs is a big salad.
Hollywood heavyweight, Gwyneth Paltrow has gone soft on her eating habits. After many years, the star reportedly put her strict macrobiotic diet to rest in order to shed weight from her pregnancy, and “has only recently relaxed rules so she can have dairy products.”
Now she follows a strict eating program designed by celebrity health guru Dr. Joshi.
According to reports, Paltrow’s old diet essentially consisted of fruit, vegetables and grains—typical wholesome and slimming nutrition. The new diet assigns her to eat only turkey, chicken, white fish, vegetables and bananas. The eight-week regimen says throw out all wheat, dairy, sugar, gluten, red meat and alcohol. While that is advice most could benefit from, pushing the consumption of poultry and fish is perplexing.
This dieting roller coaster seems unnecesary. If she already had strict macrobiotic/vegan friendly eating habits, why did Paltrow “relax” her rules and go back to dairy at all before following the advice of Dr. Joshi? Do people still believe that eating dairy can help weight loss? Don’t get me started on that!
One would think if you’re eating a wholesome, organic plant-based diet with moderate activity (which I’m sure a celebrity mother of two can manage) weight loss wouldn’t be an issue. Is this just another celeb ruse to go back to eating foods you know you’d get flack for in the press if it wasn’t for a health guru’s advice? I wonder.
In the end, of course, she can and will eat what she chooses. But if it’s really about weight loss, I’d have come up with a better story.
