Thanks to everyone who e-mailed me yesterday about Gwyneth Paltrow's cleanse. The Goopster has outdone herself. In the past she has talked about a cleanse that she likes to do and at first it was not the one she is highlighting this month. I believe her first mention of a cleanse was the one where you basically starve yourself for a week. That is her favorite. I think she probably does that one every other week. She realized though that when you just tell people to drink salt water there is no real money to be made from that, so she found some doctor who would be willing to throw her name on a box and charge $425 for people to starve themselves but make it look like they were not.
It was not until I saw that she was charging $425 that I decided to write. That is a boatload of money for a 21 day cleanse. $20 a day and you will lose some weight but let me tell you how to lose the same amount of weight for free. In her cleanse you are supposed to drink a shake in the morning and at night and have like a salad at lunch. So, basically you are paying your $20 a day for drinking a shake. Go get a 42 cans of Slim Fast on sale and you will spend about $42 over the 21 days and will probably have better results and you won't be pissed that you spent $425. Seriously? Or better yet? For $425 go to a consignment store and buy a used treadmill or stationary bike and spend an hour a day on it for the next 21 days. You will end up losing weight and it will probably stay off.
What the Goopster does is starves herself for 21 days and works out with a trainer 2-3 hours a day and then asks all of you how come you did not lose as much as her. Anyone can lose weight under her plan because you are not eating. Do NOT pay $425 to starve yourself.
