Does anyone actually like Gwyneth Paltrow out there? Usually I’m just left thinking, “Wow, what a b*tch.” or simply feeling sorry for her husband, Chris Martin. He must be a real glutton for punishment to choose to spend his nights with this misery princess. Some celebs just come across as so nice or at least pretty grounded. Gwyneth isn’t one of them. She’s better than all of us put together and we better recognize that. Okay rant over, because finally this dingbat has given me something serious to question.
Gwyneth’s new book, It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great is coming under some serious scrutiny. She has been a slave to crazy, restrictive diets for years and now Gwyneth is admitting that her kids eat just as she does. That means no breads, pastas or anything with carbs. Not only that but she admits that her kids are left HUNGRY. She says, “Sometimes when my family is not eating bread, pasta or processed grains…we’re left with that specific hunger that comes from avoiding carbs.”
Here’s the thing, her kids need those carbs to keep going during the day! They contain glycogen which is what keeps your brain running throughout the day. Basically Gwyneth is denying her kids part of the basic nutrition that is needed in order to be healthy and to think clearly. She’s also suggesting that you and I do the same! There isn’t a nutritionist around that would suggest you deprive your growing kids of carbohydrates. Should this book even be available to the public? It certainly isn’t promoting true family health. It seems more like a platform for Gywneth’s special brand of crazy to be on full display instead of offering anything of real value. Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
