Since starting her lifestyle website Goop, actress Gwyneth Paltrow has been met with criticism from many quarters. So far she has kept plugging along. In her latest effort at promotion, Paltrow claims that embarking on a detox program helped her lose weight according to reports. Paltrow says she gained the weight during a “relax and enjoy life phase.”
She wrote in her website newsletter, “I feel pure and happy and much lighter… I dropped the extra pounds that I had gained…” Paltrow revealed that she was guided by the advice of Dr. Alejandro Junger, a detox expert. She says the program “…allowed me to work and exercise regularly, something I cannot do if I am on a liquid-only detox.” Dr. Junger’s detox program is a mix of organic diet, massages, hot and cold baths and a few other elements.
