Gwyneth's New Cookbook Will Heal Your Bod, Drive You Crazy

Say what you will about Gwyneth Paltrow — she knows how to get people talking. (Well, sometimes it's more like yelling.) With the upcoming release of her latest cookbook, It's All Good, the opinions are already flying at warp-speed, and with justifiable reason. Venturing deeper into the food-healing genre she's often alluded to, this book outlines an eating program that GP claims healed her of essentially all psychical and emotional ailments, caused by overindulgence in junk food and booze.
Early reviews, including this morning's lambast in The New York Post, are calling her to the mat for these borderline medical claims. First — who actually believes Gwyneth Paltrow was sitting around drunk-snacking on french fries for months on end? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller? This is the woman who is quoted as saying that she would rather die than see a Cup-a-Soup in her house and that she will not tolerate drunk friends.
Second, the whiplash between her self-proclaimed foodie identity (see: lobster roll round-up, pizza dough recipe, bacon-infused boeuf bourguignon) and the constant image of an exercise guru who starts every year with a three-week detox is starting to become a little extreme. We love the concept of healthy living with room for indulgence, but we're not sure that's what she's pushing anymore. With, It's All Good, Gwyneth promotes an "elimination diet," removing (among other things): coffee, eggs, sugar, shellfish, deepwater fish, potatoes, tomatoes, bell peppers, eggplant, corn, soy, dairy, wheat, and meat. So, that leaves...kale?
We gives kudos to those who live an organic lifestyle, and firmly believe that proper nutrition can change your life, but good luck finding the energy for that daily workout GP insists "every woman has time to do. Every woman." We haven't done this diet and we're not here to judge, so perhaps she's onto something.
But tell us what you think. Are you eager to try out GP's new diet advice? (New York Post)
