Gwyneth Paltrow reached out to online users on Friday who criticized her diet on her Instagram Stories.
Paltrow, 50, said she has long had COVID and is working with her doctor to eat non-flammable foods.
Some nutritionists have warned against following Paltrow’s diet.
Gwenyth Paltrow defends her diet after being criticized online
On Friday, Paltrow addressed the backlash she’s faced since speaking about her wellness routine on Dear Media’s podcast “The Art of Being Well” four days earlier. Paltrow, 50, said host Dr. Cole wants her to usually start the day with coffee, eat bone broth for lunch and veggies for dinner. A video clip of the discussion went viral, sparking criticism from TikTok and Twitter users.
When one of Paltrow’s Instagram followers asked about the controversy during a fan Q&A session, she responded with two videos on her Instagram stories.
“I think it’s important for everyone to know that I did a podcast with my doctor,” Paltrow said on her Instagram Story. “So this is a person I’ve been working with for over two years to deal with some chronic things.”
Paltrow went on to say that she has had COVID for a long time and one of her symptoms includes “very high levels of inflammation over time.”
“I have with Dr. Cole to really focus on foods that are non-flammable,” Paltrow said. “So lots of cooked veggies, all kinds of protein, healthy carbs to really lower inflammation. It worked really well.”
Paltrow added that her diet was based on her medical results and “extensive testing I’ve done over time.”
She concluded that the podcast episode was meant to be a “transparent look at a conversation” between her and her doctor.
“It’s not meant to be advice to others. It’s really just what worked for me and it was very powerful and very positive. That’s not to say that I eat like this all day, every day. And by the way, I eat a lot more than bone broth and veggies,” Paltrow said. “I eat full meals, and I also have a lot of days when I can eat whatever I want. You know, french fries and whatever Eat. My baseline was to try to be healthy and eat foods that really calm the system down.”
In the original podcast, Paltrow told Dr. Cole that she is intermittently fasting.
“I eat dinner early in the evening. I do a nice intermittent fasting. I usually eat something around 12. In the morning I eat something that doesn’t spike my blood sugar, so I drink coffee. But I really like lunchtime soup. I often eat bone broth for lunch,” Paltrow said.
She added that she gets “an hour of exercise” every day before going to the sauna. Paltrow said she tries to follow the paleo diet for dinner, so she tends to eat vegetables.
Following the podcast episode and the backlash, registered dietitian and TikTok Lauren Cadillac told Insider’s Kieran Press-Reynolds that there was “so much wrong” with Paltrow’s diet. She told Insider that the amount of food she eats isn’t enough for a healthy diet based on the exercise schedule Paltrow detailed on the podcast.
Paltrow has been criticized for her health habits in the past, including suggesting that women should steam their vaginas. At the time, some gynecologists dismissed the claim, saying the act could cause burns and upset the balance between good and bad bacteria.
