Gwyneth Paltrow reveals miracle diet in new cookbook
New York: In her latest cookbook, `It`s All Good` Gwyneth Paltrow offers recipes for and insights into the strict miracle diet that her doctor put her on for three weeks to "clear out her system, heal her gut and revive her body."
Among the diet`s forbidden foods - coffee, eggs, sugar, shellfish, deepwater fish, potatoes, tomatoes, bell pepper, eggplant, corn, wheat and meat, the New York Post reported.
The prescription was, she writes, "tough words for a foodie to hear."
Paltrow has been pushing herself as a "foodie" for years.
In 2007, she took a culinary tour of Spain with Mario Batali while refusing to eat the pork for which the country is known.
The following year, she launched Goop, her embarrassingly un-self-conscious lifestyle Web site.
Despite rampant mockery, she`s persisted with the site, offering up recipes, sharing her favorite 600-dollar chef`s knives and even adding an e-commerce component to hawk Goop exclusive clothing and accessories.
And now, with her second cookbook, she is once again promoting herself as a foodie and a health guru, despite a weird obsession that treats eating with a greater sense of restriction than relish.
On the front cover, Paltrow goes to comical lengths to look relatable. She smiles toothily in front of rustic wooden crates piled with zucchini.
Her blond hair is tousled and scraggly, her dark roots clearly visible.
She wears little makeup, and her skin walks a precarious line between glowing and shiny.
In the pictures inside, she looks far more comfortable in pastoral art photos in which she`s gathering vegetables in a fetching ethnic print dress and Hunter boots.
