Gwyneth Paltrow will do just about anything to keep her slim figure.
Even fasting and detoxes.
So Gwyn took to her personal blog to share with all her fans just how she does it.
The blonde bestie of Madonna says:
"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."
So she then goes on to suggest her type of diet.
So if you want to be stick-thin like Gwyneth, do the following:
"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!
Losing weight shouldn't be about suffering. It should be about a proper and nutritious diet along with a healthy workout regimen.
Slow and steady!
