Gwyneth Paltrow Diet

Gwyneth Paltrow Diet
The Gwyneth Paltrow Diet is based upon the book, 30-Day Method by Tracy Anderson. Although Gwyneth admits her diet once consisted of “coffee, cigarettes and french fries,” she now makes much healthier choices. The 30-Day Method diet is focused on making healthy, conscious choices that happen to appease your taste buds, as well.


Gwyneth Paltrow started out using 30-Day Method’s diet advice, because author Tracy Anderson is also her workout trainer. Author, and celebrity personal trainer, Tracy Anderson says that most diets people try “work.”

But, they only “work” in the short term. Once you go off the diet, you “yo-yo” back to your normal weight. Instead of putting Gwyneth Paltrow on a roller coaster diet, Tracy Anderson wanted Paltrow to find food she would like for life. A sample workout and diet on the 30-Day Method: (See complete workout here: Gwyneth Paltrow Workout: Get Long and Lean).


By finding foods she likes, and complementing it with the Gwyneth Paltrow workout, Paltrow is on the path to success. Finding the right food includes thinking about your taste bud triggers, including eating sweets, savories, and other specialties. By finding food you enjoy, it’s much easier to live healthy for the long-term.


Food in this diet is designed to keep you constantly digesting, full of energy, and burning fat. You can learn more about the Gwyneth Paltrow diet here or on Gwyneth Paltrow’s website, Goop. The Gwyneth Paltrow diet includes a lot of soups, fruits & vegetables, and healthy desserts.

About the Gwyneth Paltrow diet, trainer Tracy Anderson says eating the right foods will make you feel better about yourself. She admits:

Food is everywhere. And it isn’t just about the nutrition for most of us. Eating is social and emotional, as well as physical…When we eat clean, nutritious foods, we actually restore the chemical balance that we’re supposed to have in our bodies.

Tracy Anderson says feeling good about food is the key to a successful diet. If you are happy with the food you’re eating, and it’s nutritious, you’re on the way to long-term success. If you’re unhappy about your diet, you may lose weight at first. But, you will gain it back, because no one is able to stay on an unhappy diet for a long period of time.


Loving what you eat, and making sure it’s healthy, is the secret to weight loss. This may sound simple, but is much harder in practice. The key is to surround yourself with healthy, delicious choices, like the sample Gwyneth Paltrow diet, below:

This is what Gwyneth Paltrow’s diet looks like when using the 30-Day Method approach. Still, Gwyneth Paltrow’s diet has changed in recent years. Ever since Gwyneth Paltrow’s dad died of cancer (at age 58), she began to explore the connection between food, nutrition and good health.

To lose her baby weight, Gwyneth Paltrow went on 6-week cleanse to lose 20 pounds. The radical cleanse included holistic detox, colonic hydrotherapy, acupuncture, and of course a gluten-free diet. She did this treatment with the help of alternative health guru Nish Joshi. Every year, Gwyneth Paltrow adds the Annual Goop Detox to her site.

Gwyneth Paltrow Cheats

Gwyneth Paltrow says planning diet cheats, from time to time, is a great way to make it feel like you’re not dieting. Gwyneth Paltrow says:

Allow yourself programmed treats. I often have a glass of red wine in the evening and smoke a cigarette on Saturday.

The key is to plan, or program, your cheats in advance. Otherwise, you run the slippery slope of giving into your cravings. If you keep giving into your cravings, at a moments notice, you’re likely to fall off your diet. According to her trainer, Gwyneth Paltrow is also a fan of french fries. Of course, the Goop Queen makes them herself, from scratch!

Gwyneth Paltrow Cookbooks

As she has learned more about nutrition, she has created a couple Gwyneth Paltrow Cookbooks. Gwyneth’s first cookbook is My Father’s Daughter: Delicious Easy Recipes (Preview on Amazon). Paltrow shares about her life as a mother, wife and daughter, along with the food she ate. The cookbook features 150 healthy recipes that Gwyneth eats.

Gwyneth Paltrow made a second cookbook after a health scare, called It’s All Good (See on Amazon). Co-authored with Julie Turshen, It’s All Good talks about how Gwyneth Paltrow changed her diet to regain her health. She starts by talking about how she felt faint & fatigued, so she decided to go to the doctor.


There, it was revealed to her that she was anemic, Vitamin-D deficient and completely stressed out. Paltrow decided to change her diet plan completely. Her doctor put Gwyneth Paltrow on a radical diet that removed processed food and many inflammation triggers from her diet.

As a result of her gluten-free, sugar-free, processed-free diet, Gwyneth Paltrow regained her health. And, she felt much happier as a result of her new diet. So, she put together her new meal plan in this second cookbook. Many people tried this novel approach to food, with varying degrees of success.

Dietary Restrictions

The dietary restrictions are the hardest part of the Gwyneth Paltrow diet. In addition to the restrictions above, Gwyneth’s It’s All Good diet is coffee-free, egg-free, diary-free and soy-free. Gwyneth explains what not to eat on her detox diet:

The rules are simple. Just say no to: alcohol, caffeine, added sugar, gluten, dairy, soy, corn, and nightshades (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant).

These types of food are on the restricted list because they often lead to food allergies, body inflammation, hormonal imbalances and even the worst–weight gain. With all these dietary restrictions in place, it’s important to remember the rule about embracing what you eat.


The Gwyneth Paltrow diet is based on the idea of finding food you want to eat, not dwelling on what you can’t eat. If you get depressed about your dietary restrictions, you’re much more likely to revert to your old habits. Find a way to like what you’re eating, because then you’re likely to stick to it.

With that in mind, the Gwyneth Paltrow diet includes healthy recipes like:

  1. Huevos Rancheros
  2. Almond & Kale Smoothie
  3. Salmon Burgers
  4. Power Brownies
  5. Banana Ice Cream

Of course, Gwyneth’s diet has stirred controversy, especially when she attempted to get her kids to follow her lifestyle. About her diet and children, Gwyneth Paltrow says:

All I do is try to eat and cook real food, the way our ancestors would. it’s funny how people react, as if it’s revolutionary that I don’t want my children to eat Oreo’s every day.
