The new year is barely two weeks old, but people are still going hard into their resolutions. And while folks have different goals they’ve set for the year, one that a lot of people are all about is getting more healthy. And leave it up to Gwyneth Paltrow to tell us a diet we all should be trying.
The 46-year-old Oscar winner, using The Goop podcast as a platform, decided to share exactly what her annual detox regimen looks like. And let’s just say that you may just faint reading all of this. “I usually detox at least once a year unless I’m testing something out for goop.com,” the Avengers: Infinity War actress said. “Which has been known to happen quite a few times. It’s a ritual that I — I’m not going to say I look forward to it, but when it’s done, I always feel like it was very worthwhile.”
The mother-of-two proceeded to list out all that she does to say in shape. Check this out: “I would say, cut out sugar, dairy, and gluten to start with and processed foods and just try to eat lots of vegetables, good quality proteins, and just start slow. I think a lot of times we think, ‘Oh my gosh, I have to follow all these rules!’ It can be as light as just being conscious about what you’re eating and putting in your body. I think also starting to read ingredient panels is a really good way to start.”
In conclusion, it seems like you have to cut out everything that is appetizing, although that’s something a lot of us have been hearing from other fitness fans for years. And if all this sounds too difficult for you, you can always try something that Gwyneth claims she invented: yoga. She once told WSJ Magazine, “I remember when I started doing yoga and people were like, ‘What is yoga? She’s a witch. She’s a freak.'” Goop‘s founder added, “Forgive me if this comes out wrong, but I went to do a yoga class in L.A. recently and the 22-year-old girl behind the counter was like, ‘Have you ever done yoga before?’ And literally I turned to my friend, and I was like, ‘You have this job because I’ve done yoga before.'”
So remember that the next time you grab your yoga mat.
