Gwyneth Paltrow, the actress and founder of Goop, has recently sparked a backlash on social media for her extreme and restrictive wellness routine, which she claims helps her cope with long COVID symptoms. But is she really following a healthy and anti-inflammatory diet, or is she using her platform to promote disordered eating and dubious products?
Paltrow revealed her daily regimen on The Art of Being Well podcast with Dr. Will Cole, a “functional medicine practitioner” who co-wrote a book with her. She said she starts her day with coffee, followed by an intermittent fast until noon, when she has bone broth for lunch. She then works out for an hour, spends 30 minutes in an infrared sauna, and has vegetables or fish for dinner. She also mentioned that she uses intravenous nutrients and dry-brushing to “support her detox”.
Many TikTok users and experts criticized Paltrow for her unrealistic and potentially harmful advice, which they said could trigger eating disorders and body image issues. They also pointed out that there is no scientific evidence that fasting, bone broth, IV therapy, or saunas can cure or prevent COVID-19 or its long-term effects. Some also accused Paltrow of being “out of touch” and “privileged” for promoting expensive and inaccessible products and services.
Paltrow responded to the backlash on her Instagram story, saying that she was only sharing what worked for her personally, based on her medical results and testing. She said she did not eat this way all the time, and that she sometimes indulged in french fries and other foods. She also said she was working with Dr. Cole to lower her inflammation levels, which were high due to long COVID.
However, some sources suggest that Paltrow’s wellness routine may be a deliberate PR stunt to distract from another scandal involving her company Goop. According to a publicist who spoke to MSN, Paltrow may be trying to divert attention from a lawsuit filed by a Texas woman who claims that one of Goop’s vaginal eggs exploded inside her. The lawsuit alleges that Goop sold defective and dangerous products that caused physical and emotional harm to the plaintiff.
Whether Paltrow’s wellness routine is a genuine attempt to heal or a calculated move to boost her brand, it is clear that she has a lot of influence over her followers and fans. However, as many critics have pointed out, her advice should not be taken as medical or nutritional guidance, and anyone who is struggling with COVID-19 or any other health issue should consult a qualified professional before making any drastic changes to their lifestyle.
