The GOOP advice continues.

Gwyneth Paltrow’s latest newsletter is encouraging subscribers to kick 2009 off by getting rid of anything inside you leftover from 2008. The actress through her GOOP.com website shares some tips on detoxing your body in a way “that is not as hallucinogenic (in a bad way) as the Master Cleanse.” Apparently, her personal experience with the MC last spring was less than pleasant.

Paltrow, through a recommendation by a doctor friend, prescribes yoga, organic foods, lots of water, and some “herbal laxatives” to get the process rolling. Continuing her middle of the road approach, the sometimes-vegetarian also lists a number of recipes with meat and fish in them.

The entire menu should be up on the site shortly — but feel free to read her introduction now after the jump.

“It is that time of year, folks. I need to lose a few pounds of holiday excess. Anyone else? I like to do fasts and detoxes a couple of times during the year, the most hardcore one being the Master Cleanse I did last spring. It was not what you would characterize as pretty. Or easy. It did work, however. As I do not wish to subsist on lemon water in the middle of winter, I asked my doctor, a detox diet specialist, for the guidelines he uses to achieve a good detox that is not as hallucinogenic (in a bad way) as the Master Cleanse. He actually thinks that the Master Cleanse can be dangerous because the liver is not supported by the nutrients it needs. What it came down to was this: you can detox easily and effectively while you continue to eat as long as you are cutting out the foods and other substances that interfere with the detoxification process. Make sure you check with your doctor before you start any detox. Drink A LOT of water. I created this menu plan for a seven-day elimination diet. The shakes and juices are meant to be liquid meals that help decrease the amount of work your digestive system has to do. I will be suffering along with you to kickstart my year a bit lighter. Good luck to us all!”
