"My baseline really has been to try to be healthy and eat foods that will really calm the system down," she shared.
Gwyneth Paltrow is addressing her eating patterns. Following her episode of The Art of Being Well podcast with Dr. Will Cole, the 50-year-old creator of Goop addressed the criticism she had received for posting her daily diet, which has been criticized for being unrealistic and unscientific, per PEOPLE.
"I think it's important for everybody to know that I was doing a podcast with my doctor. So, this is a person I've been working with for over two years now to deal with some chronic stuff," she said in an Instagram video. The Academy Award winner then explained, "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. So, lots of cooked vegetables, all kinds of protein, and healthy carbs to really lower inflammation. It's been working really well," she added. "This is based on my medical results and extensive testing that I've done over time."

Paltrow described her appearance on the podcast as "a transparent look at a conversation between me and my doctor," stating that it was not intended to be advice for other people. "It's not meant to be advice for anybody else. It's really just what has worked for me, and it's been very powerful and very positive."
The actress clarified, "This is not to say I eat this way all day, every day. And by the way, I eat far more than bone broth and vegetables. I eat full meals, and I also have a lot of days eating whatever I want. You know, eating french fries and whatever. My baseline really has been to try to be healthy and eat foods that will really calm the system down."

Paltrow broke down her wellness routine when she appeared on The Art of Being Well, and told Dr. Cole, "I eat dinner early in the evening. I do a nice intermittent fast. I usually eat something at about 12. In the morning, I'll have something that won't spike my blood sugar, so I have coffee. But I really like soup for lunch. I have bone broth for lunch a lot of the days." She was given a lot of criticism for it, with many describing her diet as unreliable or harmful, per ET Canada.
She said she makes an effort to get "one hour of movement" every day to remain active. "So I'll either take a walk or I'll do pilates or I'll do my Tracy Anderson. I dry brush and I get in the sauna." For dinner, the Academy Award-winning actress said she usually follows a Paleo diet, "So lots of vegetables. It's really important for me to support my detox."
