In the latest October newsletter from Gwyneth Paltrow’s new site, GOOP, the actress shares her knowledge of eating well with advice from three different personal doctors. While filming The Talented Mr. Ripley in Italy in 1998, she learned her father had been diagnosed with throat cancer. “I watched his health deteriorate slowly until his death in 2002,” Paltrow says of her director dad, Bruce. “During this time I began to read about Eastern medicine and the body’s capacity to heal itself.”

The advice dished by the docs ranges from getting more sleep to eating more raw veggies and organic foods to practicing yoga and avoiding chemical additives. I liked this quote the best,

“Returning to a more natural way of eating is the best way to avoid disease and premature aging. It also keeps the weight off. Buy organic foods, shop in your local farmer’s markets. Increase the consumption of vegetables, fruits, seeds, grains and legumes. More raw foods are better for health (enzymes remain intact), the environment (smaller carbon footprint) and the pocket (lower utility bills).”

Check out the full article here. I may not agree with Paltrow’s BS decision to promote fur, but I’m digging so far the good stuff coming out of GOOP.

    Yes, her shilling for fur scum is bad, but when you consider the vast majority of animals abused and exploited end up on someone’s plate, I have to be grateful she’s doing something.
