The gorgeous actress is known for her fit figure and obsession with diet and exercise, but the mom of two revealed in her new cookbook that not only does she not eat carbs — she doesn’t let her kids eat them either! Read on for more details.
Gwenyth Paltrow has been vocal about her experience with fad diets, including the macrobiotic diet and a kale and lemon cleanse, but the married mom of two revealed that she’s passing on her diet obsession to her kids Apple, 8, and Moses, 6 — and doesn’t let them eat carbs!
In her new cookbook It’s All Good, which comes out in April, Gwenyth has a chapter about grains, but talks about them more as a poison than a nutritious food group.
“Every single nutritionist, doctor and health-conscious person I have ever come across . . . seems to concur that (gluten) is tough on the system and many of us are at best intolerant of it and at worst allergic to it,” she writes in her new book.
“Sometimes when my family is not eating pasta, bread or processed grains like white rice, we’re left with that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs,” she added.
Gwyneth Paltrow Restricting Carbs Not Healthy For Kids
That reasoning, however, isn’t consistent with dietitians’ recommendations for growing kids. Public health nutritionist Yvonne Wake tells the Daily Mail that restricting carbs could be more harmful than helpful.
“I think it’s not a good idea,” she said. “Kids need carbohydrate because it gives them glycogen which keeps your brain going. Without it they won’t be able to think straight as their brain won’t be functioning and their thinking patterns will be slow.”
Even if Gwyneth doesn’t eat many grains herself, she should at least allow her kids to!
