LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: Gwyneth Paltrow has taken to social media to address the recent backlash surrounding her wellness routine and eating habits. The founder of Goop caused a stir after appearing on Dr Will Cole's podcast, 'The Art of Being Well', where she discussed her routine of intermittent fasting, consuming bone broth and vegetables, and regularly using a sauna. Responding to critics who accused her of "starving" herself, Paltrow stated, "This is not to say that I eat this way all day every day. And by the way, I eat far more than bone broth and vegetables."

In a selfie video posted on Instagram, Paltrow, wearing retro aviator glasses and a white cardigan, explained that her health regimens were a result of her chronic struggles with long Covid-19. The video comes as a response to the uproar caused by her interview, which sent the internet into a frenzy. "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," explained the Academy Award winner. She continued, "So, lots of cooked vegetables, all kinds of protein, healthy carbs to really lower inflammation. It's been working really well. This is based on my medical results and extensive testing that I've done over time."

Gwyneth Paltrow's controversial interview

Following her viral interview clip, which featured her discussing her exhaustive wellness routine while hooked up to an IV, Paltrow shared a more detailed explanation on her eating habits. "I eat dinner early in the evening...I usually eat something about 12 and in the morning I have things that won't spike my blood sugar, so I have coffee," she said.

Paltrow continued, "But I really like soup for lunch. I have bone broth for lunch a lot of the days. Try to do one hour of movement...And then I dry brush and I get in the sauna. So I do my infrared sauna for 30 minutes and then for dinner, I try to eat according to paleo – so lots of vegetables. It's really important for me to support my detox." However, her routine was met with fierce backlash on social media, with some questioning if her diet was promoting unhealthy habits. Despite the criticism from viewers and professional dietitians, Paltrow maintained that her health regimen was based on medical results and extensive testing.

'Under eating is more than dangerous'

Tess Holiday, a model, criticized Paltrow's eating habits in an Instagram post, stating, "Highlighting someone who normalizes under eating is more than dangerous. It is violent." Meghan McCain, in a Daily Mail opinion piece, said, "If you want to eat one real meal a day and blow things up your butt – be my guest. But the problem is that Paltrow is not just living her best life – she's broadcasting it out to the world and selling it on her website."

Kim Lindsay, a dietician, expressed concern over the viral video, which she shared, stating, "So much diet culture in this 'wellness routine.' I worry about how many people will follow this. Please remember to eat regularly over the day and enjoy all foods as part of a balanced diet xx." Despite the criticism, Paltrow stood by her routine, explaining that it was based on medical results and extensive testing.
