My friend told me the other day that she and her friends were attempting the “Gwenyth Paltrow Diet.” I had literally no idea what that was and as she started explaining it to me, I was even more intrigued. I have heard that Gwenyth forces her kids to eat very clean and can sometimes be considered obsessive so I couldn’t wait to see some of the online feedback and the breakdown of her new diet trend.
This new detox diet can be found in her new cookbook called It’s All Good which is a follow-up to her first cookbook, My Father’s Daughter that actually got a lot of great press. She provides you with simple, easy, clean and less caloric recipes that take into account every allergy you could possibly have. Instead of just repeating what I read about the diet, I decided to search for testimonies on those who had tried the diet. I stumbled upon an article in NY Magazine by Rebecca Harrington and I loved her play-by-play of her 10 day dive into this interesting diet. She explains:
This new cookbook of Gwyneth’s has an interesting genesis. After enduring a panic attack during a supper party (I really understand), Gwyneth went to several doctors and realized she had sensitivities to various food groups, such as dairy, gluten, and chicken’s eggs. Thus, she felt she had to make a cookbook that eliminated all the bad foods that ruin lives, like bread, deepwater fish, red meat, cow’s milk, and eggplants, and focus on the “good” foods in the world, like goji berries and quail eggs. Hence, It’s All Good! Do you get it? All the foods that are not bad.
So after buying all of the ingredients (which she admits are very expensive), making all of her recommended recipes and trying the diet for 10 days, including Gwenyth’s workout regimen, here is what she recommends:
What have I learned from Gwyneth’s diet? It’s an awesome way to live! If I wasn’t going to go bankrupt to do it, I would follow the Gwyneth diet to the letter every day. The food is healthy, delicious, and filling, the recipes are not particularly complicated, and you avoid a huge rash on your face that you apparently just lived with before. If this is the way the other half lives, I want to live it! Let’s all appreciate that she shares her awesome tips with the world.

After reading this article, I must admit that I am rather intrigued to give it a try, even if it is just a few recipes. I love the idea of having more glowing skin, more energy and more defined arms. I don’t think I could dedicate myself to every meal and spend $200 each week but I plan to try out a few of her recipes in the coming weeks and I will definitely share!
