"I do believe that there is a growing number of people with gluten intolerance, not just celiac disease, like myself. I do think it causes inflammation in the body, whether you are celiac or gluten intolerant or not."
And even though some of the women on the talk show such as Whoopi Goldberg, Sherri Shepherd and Joy Behar don't necessarily like Paltrow's diet, Hesselbeck exclaims that "she could do whatever the heck she wants," adding:
"She's a mom, those are her kids, do what you want. I do believe that there are quality carbs that can replace gluten, like a quinoa, amaranth, buckwheat, rice, corn, all those things . . . They're alternative grains that provide a great amount of nutrition. You need quality carbs. Kids need quality carbohydrates to run.
I've been on a diet for 10 years, I've never felt better."
In Paltrow's new cookbook, It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great, she admits that sometimes her family is left hungry because of how strict her diet is, so we can understand why a lot of people think she's gone mad.
But hey, at least one person has Gwennie's back!!
