Gwyneth Paltrow has spoken for the first time about her miscarriage, which almost killed her. She feels she is still missing the baby. You can read more about this health issue here.
What is causing the most stir for her family is her new book and way of eating. She lost control of one hand and had a severe pain in her head. She was, in fact, having a panic attack and a migraine. When looked into further these health problems were the result of many health issues. Ms. Paltrow was deficient in Vitamin B; was anemic; and had a benign tumor on her ovary.
After talking with her friend and doctor, it was decided she would clean out her system with an an elimination diet for 21 days. Thus her book, It’s All Good, was born.
Her new cookbook named in its entirety, It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great, touts the virtues of going gluten-free and sugar-free.
As Time magazine’s Newsfeed reports, she put together the recipes after being told by her doctor to go on an “elimination diet,” which meant cutting out coffee, alcohol, dairy, eggs, sugar, shellfish, deep-water fish, wheat, meat, soy, potatoes, eggplant, corn, bell pepper and processed foods.
Many people do elimination diets to find what foods they may be allergic to. Little by little food is introduced to see how the body reacts to the food.
In Look Good and Feel Great Gwyneth talks about how the low-carb, gluten-free diet her husband, Chris Martin, and children Apple (8) and Moses (6) eat leave them feeling hungry at times.
Many children and adults cannot eat gluten; many successfully lose weight eating low carbohydrates. You may find information that tells us her children eat no carbohydrates. We are not doctors but given that Ms. Paltrow had health issues is it possible that her many fad diets contributed to them and are these just another two to add to her list? What about the children? Should they be put on this diet unless medically necessary? Speak out below!
