Celebrity Diets: Gwyneth Paltrow

gwyneth paltrows diet obviously works but isn't healthyWhether you love her or hate her, there’s no denying that Gwyneth Paltrow has an incredible figure. The actress and mother-of-two followed a strict macrobiotic diet in the early noughties, but has since become a devotee of Tracy Anderson’s method – a diet and exercise plan that is not without controversy.

Here’s an overview of a typical day in the diet of Gwyneth.

After a 7am cup of green tea, breakfast is either a “Think Thin”   protein bar or a “Clean Shake” comprising almond milk, powder  supplements and a handful of blueberries.

Then it’s time for a 90-minute workout followed by a glass of kale juice and a lunch of “super low carb, low calorie tortilla wraps”.

Paltrow’s recipe for Lemony Grilled Chicken to accompany the wrap is as follows: “Marinate chicken breast in lemon juice and a tiny (emphasis on tiny) bit of olive oil. Season well and grill. Serve with the steamed vegetable or vegetable salad of your choice.”

An afternoon snack of almonds or organic fermented tea is followed by Anderson’s “super-low calorie” turkey kale soup for dinner.

While Gwyneth would be getting an array of nutrients and some protein from the vegetables and almonds, this diet has been estimated to contain as few as 700 calories a day – simply not enough for a healthy balanced diet. I don’t recommend following such a strict diet if you’re hoping to lose weight, or even function properly!

Speaking to Harpers Bazaar magazine recently, Gwyneth said:

“I eat whatever I want. I like bread and cheese and wine, and that makes my life fun and enjoyable.”

Do you believe her?

  1. I’m a little confused by Gwen… one second she is saying that she eats only raw foods, the next she says she only eats lean protein and the next she says she eats whatever she wants, has a cook book and a web site dedicated to food… Make up your mind! LOL. Although, you’re totally right, she’s got a SLAMMIN’ body!!! People have been telling me that I look like her lately actually (just face, lol, I am far too short to have her body, lol).

  2. She does seem a little ambiguous with her eating habits, and I’m not too sure I believe her when she says she loves to pig out! Whatever she does seems to be working though!
