Gwyneth Paltrow’s “Wellness Routine” Is Called Out By Health Professionals For Sounding Like An Gateway Into Eating Disorders
Welp–another day, another expert suggesting that you should not listen to Gwyneth Paltrow‘s life advice. Currently, the 50-year-old Goop Cult Leader is pushing a “wellness routine” that has eating disorder specialists going: “Pause!” saying that her diet is not giving her enough energy for a living human. But have they considered that Gwyneth fuels her body nutrition via her overt uppity pretentiousness?
This is not the first nor the second time a health professional has suggested NOT taking Gwyneth’s Goopy advice, but it is the most recent. Gwyneth was on the podcast The Art of Being Well with Dr. Will Cole. This is the same podcast where Goopy said that the weirdest wellness thing she’s done is rectal ozone therapy. But believe it or not, she said a lot more dumb shit than that. During the podcast, Gwyneth describes to him as her “wellness routine” would sound psychotic to any ethical person with a medical license. via The Herald Sun:
In the 41-second clip, a snippet from an hour-long podcast, Gwyneth explains she eats “dinner early in the evening” before intermittent fasting until well into the next day.
“I usually eat something about 12. In the morning I’ll have things that won’t spike my blood sugar, so I have coffee. I really like soup for lunch, I have bone broth for lunch a lot of the days.”
Gwyneth went on to state she does “one hour of movement every day” before having a 30-minute infra-red sauna followed by dinner – a paleo meal with “lots of vegetables.”
“It’s really important for me to support my detox,” the clip concludes.
So basically, she’s eating two kinds of flavored water, some vegetables, seeds, and shit. That apparently wasn’t even a joke earlier–she really must physically fuel her body via pretentiousness. Otherwise, I’m amazed she’s alive. An Australian dietitian, Kim Lindsay, who specializes in eating disorders, says that Gwyn’s little routine sounds like a regular person who tried this could lead to disordered eating, saying it “worried” her.
“Gwyneth is promoting dieting and packaging it as “wellness,”” Lindsay told news.com.au.
“She talks about restrictive dieting practices like intermittent fasting and the paleo diet. This is concerning because we know that dieting is unsustainable for the vast majority of people and can lead to negative health consequences like eating disorders, weight cycling (when your weight fluctuates), and heart disease.”
Lindsay, an accredited practising dietitian who takes a non-diet approach to health and nutrition based in Canberra, added the star’s listed food in-take was also problematic.
“She is eating too little food to fuel her day. Bone broth has very little nutrition in it and should not be seen as a complete, balanced meal…”
“Coffee is often used to suppress appetite thereby ignoring her natural hunger cues. There is also no evidence that the paleo diet is healthy.”
“We do not need to detox, our body detoxes itself everyday through our liver and kidneys… This is another example of diet culture misinformation making people think they need to go on restrictive diets in the name of health.”
Here’s a TikTok duet where Kim roasts Goopy’s routine. And yes, taking one look at Goopy, makes me believe that she only ingests coffee and bone broth all day:
#duet with @dearmedia #gwynethpaltrow So much diet culture in this ‘wellness routine’. I worry about how many people will follow this. Please remember to eat regulalry over the day and enjoy all foods as part of a balanced diet xx #dietculture #wellness #dietitian
And that’s not the only medically inaccurate information Gwyneth was spewing, and it didn’t take a professional to call it out, as the people in the comments also let Gwyneth know that no, actually Ellen, that’s not the truth–coffee very much will spike your blood sugar, bitch:
Caffeine can cause a spike in blood sugar levels as it triggers a hormonal response in our bodies according to multiple studies.
Many pointed this out in the comments, adding the effect can be worsened by a lack of food.
“Coffee on an empty stomach spikes cortisol,” one said.
“Coffee literally spikes your blood sugar and cortisol without food,” another agreed.
I know, we’re all shocked that Gwyneth is giving bad medical advice. But Gwyneth continued to be the master at getting people to waste their time and money. At least with the $30k BDSM chair she hawked, people could get some fun out of it. There’s no fun in this diet, only misery and low energy levels.
