She is without a doubt one of the most well-known actresses of her generation. While she has gone out and had done exceptional acting in some major projects, Gwyneth Paltrow is also a phenomenal entrepreneur who has brought forth a booming business ‘Goop’ focused on health and skincare. The fact is it really seems a natural choice for her. Gwyneth is incredibly fit and she also advocates for all sorts of healthy lifestyle choices. She’s in her late 40s, and a mom of two. She credits her slender body to a healthy, balanced diet and regular exercise with her trainer, also focusing on major skin care. In this article, we will be looking at her health, diet, and workout routine.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Diet
Gwyneth follows the macrobiotic diet. In the 1920s, a Japanese philosopher named George Obsawa created this diet. It is all about eating simply. Food should be nourishing and free from toxins. This means she eats a lot of organic grains, fresh vegetables, and the occasional serving of organic fish or poultry. She avoids overly sugary or processed foods. If she eats dairy products, she typically sticks to goat milk. Gwyneth also tries to avoid baked bread, even though she said she sometimes does indulge in a baguette with cheese. Gwyneth is also not a big morning eater. Instead of having a large meal for breakfast, she likes to drink smoothies with Vitamin C and antioxidants. After working out, Gwyneth makes sure she has some protein. She likes to have a peanut butter protein bar or a protein-packed smoothie. Her dinner meals are similar to her lunch recipes, just more relaxed. She likes to make sure she’s eating locally-sourced vegetables with protein. Some of her dinner meals include:
Healthy risotto with peas
Healthy fried rice with kale
Tuna ginger burgers
Gwyneth also likes to keep things simple for herself and her two kids. She tries to have chicken, pasta, and rice in the fridge so that she can quickly whip up meals for her family. She likes to chop up vegetables, make a quick sauce, and add her pre-made rice for stir-fry meals.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Workout
If there is one thing Gwyneth does frequently, it is working out. She does 45 minutes of cardio 5 times a week as well as 45 minutes of strengthening exercises through yoga-inspired routines 5 times a week. No wonder she manages to stay so lean and toned! When she has an event coming up, Gwyneth increases her workouts to two hours, six times a week. Before she started working out regularly, Gwyneth felt like she had a long, square butt and a bony upper body. She is amazed that people now think she has a good body. Gwyneth believes that, if she can transform her body, anybody can! To tone her abs, Gwyneth Paltrow regularly performs ab workouts. She performs the following movements for 30 reps on each side:
Cross and Kick
Split Knee-Pull Crunch
Gwyneth is known for experimenting with creative, and at times controversial approaches to wellness. At the end of the day though, she still focuses on habits that we can all get behind. She eats wholesome food (especially vegetables and lean protein), moderates how much sugar and junk food she eats, and exercises regularly. Outside of the kitchen and gym, she makes sure that she gets plenty of sleep and prioritizes self-care. Good for her!
