TikTok users chastised Gwyneth Paltrow earlier this week after she revealed her wellness routine and diet, which included an intermittent fast. Intermittent fasting is a regular eating plan that alternates between fasting and eating. This form of diet plan, according to research, can help you lose weight and prevent disease. Many diets are concerned with what you eat, but intermittent fasting is focused on ‘when’ you eat.
Gwyneth Paltrow is trending on social media after revealing her ‘daily wellness routine’ on the podcast that was released on Monday. The Goop founder was asked about her wellness routine in an interview for the podcast The Art of Being Well.
Since then, people have been concerned about the Iron Man star’s restricted diet, which has earned her the moniker “ultimate almond mom” on social media. For those who are unaware, this term is used by TikTok users to criticize parents who teach their children about obsessive and disordered eating habits.
A dietician who commented on the debate online told Insider that there is simply not enough food for proper nutrition if someone is following this diet plan.

Gwyneth Paltrow Faced Criticism for Revealing Her ‘Wellness Routine’
Gwyneth Paltrow sparked outrage after sharing her ‘daily wellness routine’ and revealing her diet, which mainly consists of bone broth and green vegetables. Following her interview with Dr Will Cole for The Art of Being Well podcast earlier this week, the Goop founder has been brutally trolled on the internet.
She discussed a variety of topics, including keyboard warriors and conscious uncoupling, but it was her remarks about her routine and diet that sparked the most controversy. Several social media users called her definition of ‘wellness’ into question, and a few registered dieticians advised people to “stop listening to celebrities.”
The 50-year-old actress was asked, “What does your wellness routine look like right now?” during an hour-long podcast. Her response was edited down to a 40-second clip and posted to the podcast network’s TikTok account. “I eat dinner early in the evening,” the actress said. “I do a nice intermittent fast.”
Paltrow’s day begins, according to the video, with intermittent fasting and nothing that spikes her blood sugar, so only coffee. Lunch will be soup or bone broth around noon. Following that, it’s an hour of “movement,” followed by dry-brushing and 30 minutes in her infrared sauna. She then finishes her day with a paleo dinner consisting of “lots of vegetables.“
However, the video, which has gotten over 1.8 million views and 13.2 thousand comments, has received harsh criticism as well.

She Clarified Her Wellness Routine Following The Backlash
Gwyneth Paltrow cleared up the ongoing confusion on social media about her wellness routine. Following her appearance on The Art of Being Well podcast, the actress addressed claims that she was endorsing a ‘restrictive’ diet. The 50-year-old clarified that she has collaborated with the podcast’s host, functional medicine practitioner, Dr Will Cole, to really focus on non-inflammatory foods.
However, the Oscar-winning actress finally clarified the situation on Instagram yesterday.“I think it’s important for everyone to know that I was doing a podcast with my doctor, so this is a person that I’ve been working with for over two years now to deal with some chronic stuff.”
She stated this in an Instagram Stories video on March 17. “This is not to say that I eat this way every day,” she clarified.
“By the way, I eat far more than bone broth and vegetables. I eat full meals, and I also have a lot of days of eating whatever I want and eating French fries and whatever. But my baseline really has been to try to be healthy and eat foods that will really calm the system down.”
Several dieticians criticized Paltrow’s diet after the podcast’s March 13 episode with the Goop founder was released. A healthy meal, according to Harvard University experts, is one that contains 50% fruits and vegetables, 25% protein, and 25% whole grains.
