After last Christmas when Gwyneth Paltrow wrote about her detox, she received some positive publicity. At this point any positives for her are fairly rare, so she did what she does best. She detoxed again. I know many of you have written that you followed her detox program from Christmas and that it worked. I'm glad it did and I will always give credit where it is due so golf clap to Gwyneth.
That being said, I am wondering just how often she needs to detox, and do we have to read about it every time? How often is she going to write about detoxing herself and how fabulous it is and how fabulous she is and how she needed to rid herself of the 2 pounds she had gained over the past six months. The thing I dislike about her is that she can convey even good information that many of you like but make you hate her while she conveys it. She has a problem relating to people and you would think that perhaps instead of a detox program that maybe she would look into a sensitivity program or a think about it before you speak program or have someone proofread what she writes in her newsletter so she doesn't sound pompous and arrogant.
Here is what Gwyneth wrote.
“This program allowed me to work and exercise regularly, something I cannot do if I am on a liquid-only detox. I followed it to the letter and I can report that it worked wonders. I feel pure and happy and much lighter (I dropped the extra pounds that I had gained during a majorly fun and delicious “relax and enjoy life phase” about a month ago). I also really enjoyed learning about the incredible health benefits of resting your digestive system, etc. This thing is amazing.”
So, what she is saying if I am reading this right is that when you are on a liquid only detox which she advocated earlier this year, you basically need to stay on your sofa and have your nannies take care of the kids and someone else cook for them and someone to do the cleaning.
It is the next part where I think she needs to think about what she is writing and how it affects people. Everyone of us knows that Gwyneth is not a normal weight. So, for her to say to the world that she needed to drop extra pounds she had gained it makes you wonder if she has a sense of what a normal size and body type is. Even for those of you who are out there and are a size 0, chances are if you gained two pounds, you wouldn't need a detox to rid yourself of it. Does anyone think she gained more than two pounds?
This relax and enjoy life phase. Anyone have any guesses to what that means? I think it means she allowed herself to have an entire meal once a week. I also hope that she is allowing her children to relax and enjoy their lives and they don't end up this uptight.
I do sometimes think that Gwyneth means well, but she is just so awful at it, that she makes herself look even worse.
