Gwyneth Paltrow Promotes $425 GOOP Cleanse

In January, when people are dieting and exercising their way back into their skinny jeans, dietary cleanses that promise quick, effective weight loss can be tempting. In today’s edition of her GOOP newsletter, actress and health aficionado Gwyneth Paltrow promoted her new The GOOP Cleanse by Clean kit, which retails at $425.

The cleanse program instructs you to drink a special protein shake for breakfast, eat a balanced meal for lunch, a protein shake for dinner and take GOOP “clean” supplements throughout the day. Though popular cleanses like The Blueprint Cleanse, The Master Cleanse and The Zen Cleanse purport a number of health benefits, doctors have told Hollywood Life that there is no “scientific proven” value to cleanses.

While the cleanse kit is designed to give your digestive system a break, eliminate toxins, rebuild beneficial bacteria and give you more energy, NYC internist Dr. Robert Bos said that there is no medical evidence that your digestive system needs a break.

Tracy Anderson Admits to Wanting An Eating Disorder

Tracy Anderson is again shocking people with her less than responsible statements, reminiscent of what I read in her book Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method: the Weight-Loss Kick-Start That Makes Perfection. Fitperez recently published the following quote from Anderson: “After my parents divorced when I was 17 my mum worked three jobs so I could come to New York and train to be a ballet dancer. But I didn’t make it – I got too fat and couldn’t shift the weight.”

“I tried everything short of an eating disorder – which I really wanted to have, actually.” As Fitperez points out, it sounds like, even as a seemingly healthy adult, she is regretting not having an eating disorder.

One interesting point raised about this statement by Kelly Turner, a Seattle-based ACE-certified personal trainer and professional health and fitness writer, is that “this proves that you can’t just wish an eating disorder into existence, you have to be predisposed and then often times something, like stress or extreme change, brings it to a head.”

Gwyneth Paltrow to Release New Healthy Cookbook

Whether you know Gwyneth Paltrow from Shakespeare in Love fame or as the budding songstress wife to Coldplay’s Chris Martin, this mother of two has plenty of other skills up her sleeve. The latest? Cooking.

In April, Paltrow will release My Father’s Daughter: Delicious, Easy Recipes Celebrating Family and Togetherness, her first cookbook that will include a variety of  healthy, quick, weeknight dinner recipes for families.

“In the last ten years or so, cooking has become my main ancillary passion in life,” Paltrow writes in the book. “The stove is the epicenter of my house — I am never far away from it and most of the time there is something atop it, simmering away for my family.”

Paltrow has made headlines in the past about her diet and exercise habits, from maintaining a macrobiotic diet to making controversial comments about exercise.  Now, she is focusing on healthful foods and reducing the amount of sugar in her family’s diet.
