You might have been hearing your whole life, "Remember to chew your food!"
Even if not, it's actually better advice than you'd think, and Gwyneth Paltrow is really taking it to heart.
A source said:
"Gwyn could pass for a 20-year-old. Her figure is amazing, you’d never know she’d given birth to two children. She sticks to a very strict macrobiotic diet which involves eating mainly grains and vegetables. She makes sure she chews every mouthful 13 times, at least. She also does organic juice detoxes. It sounds boring but she looks incredible. She works out five days a week and does Pilates."
Gwyneth herself attributes a lot of her health to the amount of sleep she gets. She said:
"For me, sleep is a major thing. I don’t always get it, and when I don’t, I look like I’ve been hit by a truck. I had to work hard to get like this, but now I’m here it’s so great because I don’t have to think about it. I can just enjoy life. What a relief that is."
So chew your food and get some sleep!
If you had been listening to your parents all along you'd already look like Gwyneth Paltrow!
