Gwenyth Paltrow defends her diet after facing criticism online.

On Friday, Paltrow addressed the backlash she’s faced since discussing her wellness routine on Dear Media’s “The Art of Being Well” podcast four days earlier. Paltrow, 50, told host Dr. Will Cole that she typically starts the day with coffee, eats bone broth for lunch and vegetables for dinner. A video clip of the discussion went viral, prompting criticism from TikTok and Twitter users.

When one of Paltrow’s Instagram followers asked about the controversy during a fan Q&A, she responded with two videos on her Instagram Stories.

“I think it’s important for everyone to know that I did a podcast with my doctor,” Paltrow said in her Instagram story. “So this is someone I’ve been working with for over two years now to deal with some chronic things.”

Paltrow continued that she has had COVID for a long time, and one of her symptoms includes “very high levels of inflammation over time.”

“I’ve been working with Dr. Cole to really focus on foods that are non-inflammatory,” Paltrow said. “So, lots of cooked vegetables, all kinds of proteins, healthy carbs to really lower inflammation. It’s worked really well.”

Paltrow added that her diet was based on her medical results and “extensive testing that I’ve done over time.”

She concluded that the podcast episode was meant to be a “transparent look at a conversation” between her and her doctor.

“It’s not meant to be advice to anyone else. It’s really just what’s worked for me, and it’s been very powerful and very positive. It doesn’t mean I eat this way all day, every day. And by the way, I eat way more than bone broth and vegetables,” Paltrow said. “I eat full meals and I also have a lot of days where I eat whatever I want. You know, eat fries and whatever. My baseline has been to try to be healthy and eat foods that will really calm the system. ”

In the original podcast, Paltrow told Dr. Cole that she intermittently fasts.

“I eat dinner early in the evening. I do a nice intermittent fasting. I usually eat something around 12. In the morning I want something that won’t spike my blood sugar, so I have coffee. But I really like soup for lunch. I have bone broth for lunch most days,” Paltrow said.

She added that she does “an hour of movement” every day for exercise before stepping into a sauna. Paltrow said she tries to follow the Paleo diet for dinner, so she usually eats vegetables.

After the podcast episode and the backlash, registered dietitian and TikTok Lauren Cadillac told Insider’s Kieran Press-Reynolds that “there was so much wrong” with Paltrow’s diet. She told Insider that based on the exercise regimen Paltrow described during the podcast, the amount of food she consumes is not enough for a healthy diet.

Paltrow has previously received criticism over her health habits, including suggesting that women should steam their vaginas. At the time, some gynecologists pushed back on the claim, saying the act could cause burns and upset the balance of good and bad bacteria.
