How Gwyneth Paltrow reacted after the public objected to her routine
The Oscar winner recently appeared on Dr. Will Coles The art of being good podcast, in which she broke her habits to the doctor. Her comments seemed to give many the impression that she wasn’t eating enough on a daily basis. Days after the interview went live, Gwyneth Paltrow spoke out on the matter during a Q&A about her Instagram stories. She explained that she’s been working with Cole for a while and he’s helped her develop a nutritional approach that’s viable for her chronic conditions:
In previous interviews, the star has been candid about how COVID has affected her life, including how she gained weight during the lockdown like a number of others. Her comments suggest that this approach to her diet has been beneficial to her in her particular situation. At that point, the actress (filling in for Julia Roberts Shakespeare in love) stressed that it was not her intention to list these facts in order to give advice. She just wanted to have a “transparent” conversation with her doctor:
Some appreciate the clarity provided here. However, the backlash that came from those initial comments is still worth noting.
What did Gwyneth Paltrow actually say about her diet plan and how have people reacted?
In the viral TikTok excerpt from the interview, the Marvel star explained that in the morning she strives to have “some things that don’t spike my blood sugar,” making coffee a go-to for her. She also said she prefers “soup for lunch,” especially “bone broth.” And when it comes to dinner, she tries to eat “the Paleo way,” so she eats “lots of veggies” that help “support my detox.”
In addition to her eating habits, Gwyneth Paltrow also opened up about how she stays active during the day. She apparently participates in an “hour of exercise” daily and also spends 30 minutes in an infrared sauna. All these feelings seemed to worry the commentators. After Paltrow was called in, even a dietitian weighed in, saying her regimen “doesn’t sound all that healthy, really.” Former The view host Meghan McCain also did not mince words when discussing the situation in a column for DailyMail. com:
Former Real Housewives of New York City alum Bethenny Frankel, who once threw shade at Gwyneth Paltrow for supporting Kim Kardashian, also shared thoughts on Instagram. And the reality TV star called out eating disorders while competing:
Plus-size model Tess Holiday joined the discussion via a TikTok post which has since gained considerable momentum. While Holiday tried not to judge, she did drop some strong thoughts on the retired actress’s food choices:
There are certainly different ways people choose to approach their health and choose eating habits. And in fairness, some may be a bit more unusual than others. But ultimately, a person has the freedom to choose how they want to stay healthy. Gwyneth Paltrow has made her position clear and it is likely she will stick to it.
