Gwyneth Paltrow Talks Diet And Marriage, Says “Never Cut Out Brownies Or Wine”

Gwyneth Paltrow dishes on her life changing diet, which she shares in her new cookbook, “It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great”.


Gwyneth shared that after feeling run down far too often, she turned to her doctor for help.  She says, “My doctor, Alejandro Junger, recommended that I cut out basically everything: dairy, sugar, gluten, anything processed. I was like, ‘What the f-ck am I going to eat now?’ That’s why I made the book: to stop eating brown rice out of the fridge because I didn’t know what else to eat — it was demoralizing.”

But she found that it not only made her feel better physically, it changed her emotionally, too.  “You feel lighter and your emotions get smoother. [I] had a lot of unexpressed anger. I made everyone else’s feelings more important than my own. I’d suck it up and then be alone in my car yelling at traffic or fighting with hangers in my closet when they got stuck together.” 

Gwyneth says the new cleaner way of eating changed her marriage to Chris Martin, too. ” You’re not learning anything unless you’re having the difficult conversations. Dealing with things directly changed my relationships. Sometimes when you get clear about who you are, others get less comfortable because they liked who you were. It’s changed my marriage, too, but he’s up for the challenge.”

Although she’s committed to eating right, the mom of two says that it’s all about balance, not deprivation.  “It’s good to work in healthy food, whether it’s five days a week or five meals a week. And if you’re going to do it, it should be awesome food you’re psyched to make. But never cut out the brownies or the wine.”
