Gwyneth Paltrow Facing Immense Backlash for Her Daily Wellness Routine
Gwyneth Paltrow shared a detailed breakdown of her daily wellness routine in a new interview this week to share with fans how she keeps healthy. The responses make it quite clear that not many want to follow her example. One person even compared her routine to "colonoscopy prep."
Paltrow, 50, joined Dr. Will Cole for the March 13 episode of Dear Media's podcast The Art of Being Well. Cole asked the Goop founder what her wellness routine looks like today. Paltrow said she eats dinner "early in the evening," and then does a "nice intermittent" fast. She then eats something at around 12.
In the morning, Paltrow tries to avoid foods that will "spike my blood sugar," so she will have coffee. She likes soup for lunch, specifically bone broth. "I try to do one hour of movement, so I'll either take a walk or I'll do pilates or I'll do my Tracy Anderson," Paltrow said before she does a "dry brush" and visits her infrared sauna for 30 minutes. "And then for dinner, I try to eat, you know, according to paleo," Paltrow explained. "So lots of vegetables. It's really important for me to support my detox."

In another clip from her interview with Cole, Paltrow admitted to using antioxidant IVs to get a dose of vitamins. She said she receives glutathione, which promotes tissue building and boosts the immune system, and phosphatidylcholine, which is found in common foods and aids fat metabolism, notes the New York Post. "That's my favorite IV when I can find them," she said of phosphatidylcholine. "They're quite hard to find. Those make me feel so good."
Many who saw this clip felt it made Paltrow more unrelatable to the average person. "Tell me you're unrelatable without telling me your unrelatable," one person wrote. "This is PERFECT material for an SNL skit. This is really unbelievable," another wrote.prev
