Gwyneth Paltrow always appears calm and positive, glowing with health and energy. But her fit and fabulous appearance doesn't reveal the physical and emotional problems that she's suffered, according to an interview published in Self magazine. To help with physical problems such as fatigue and emotional problems such as anxiety attacks, Gwyneth sought help from holistic health expert Dr. Alejandro Junger. Discover his advice to her, and what she currently eats for a healthy, happy life.
Author of "Clean -- Expanded Edition: The Revolutionary Program to Restore the Body's Natural Ability to Heal Itself" (click here to get it now), Dr. Junger "recommended that I cut out basically everything: dairy, sugar, gluten, anything processed," Gwyneth told Self magazine. The result of this clean eating detox diet: "You feel lighter and your emotions get smoother," she said. Noting that she often felt exhausted before she transformed her menus, Gwyneth wanted to eat more than "brown rice out of the fridge." The result: She experimented with different permitted foods on this plan, and even created her own recipes, which she provides in a cookbook that also contains details on her holistic diet: "It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great" (click here to order now). Now, according to Parade magazine, these items are always in Gwyneth's pantry:
