Gwyneth Paltrow Responds to Backlash Over Her Controversial ‘Wellness Routine’


Share post:

Gwyneth Paltrow wants to set the record straight on her controversial “wellness routine.”

Earlier this week, Paltrow went viral on TikTok for an appearance on Dear Media’s The Art of Wellness. While hooked up to an IV, the 50-year-old actor described her diet as a mix of intermittent fasting and paleo, specifically highlighting coffee in the morning, bone broth at lunch, and “lots of vegetables” at dinner. 

“It’s really important for me to support my detox,” she said, leading some viewers to wonder, “detox from what?

Many were also concerned that impressionable viewers might try to adopt this restrictive diet. “What’s being described in this video is disordered eating,” one Twitter user wrote. “It’s dangerous. It’s deadly. More so than fatness will ever be. It’s okay for us to expect more from those holding social power. No one is exempt.”

On March 17, Paltrow responded to the criticism during a Q+A on her Instagram Story. “I think it’s important for everybody to know that I was doing a podcast with my doctor,” she began, per People. “So, this is a person I’ve been working with for over two years now to deal with some chronic stuff.” 

The actor continued, “I have long COVID, and the way it manifests for me is very high levels of inflammation over time. So, I’ve been working with Dr. Cole to really focus on foods that aren’t inflammatory. So, lots of cooked vegetables, all kinds of protein, healthy carbs to really lower inflammation. It’s been working really well.”

Paltrow added that her appearance on the podcast was meant to be “a transparent look at a conversation between me and my doctor” and “not meant to be advice for anybody else.” 

She added, “It’s really just what has worked for me, and it’s been very powerful and very positive. This is not to say I eat this way all day, every day. And by the way, I eat far more than bone broth and vegetables. I eat full meals, and I also have a lot of days of eating whatever I want. You know, eating french fries and whatever. My baseline really has been to try to be healthy and eat foods that will really calm the system down.”
