Gwyneth Paltrow works HARD for that body! The 40-year-old actress stuck with veggies at a recent carb fest, prompting an outcry online. Seriously…. there’s NOTHING better to talk about today? What, everyone calms down over the summer? Is it just me or is this day DRAGGING!
Anyhoo, Gwyneth was out to dinner with her husband Chris Martin, their children Apple, 8, and Moses, 6, at Serafina East Hampton in New York, when the group ordered a huge carb-filled spread. Gwynnie didn’t touch any of it.
“Gwyneth didn’t touch the carbs,” the source notes. “She only ate the steamed vegetables. So everyone else had a pizza and pasta feast while she ate her vegetables and drank sparkling water.”
Her family, meanwhile, had no qualms about loading up. After digging into plates of spaghetti and pizza margherita, they sampled several of the restaurant’s desserts, including chocolate souffle, apple pie, and ice cream.
“They seemed really happy, lots of smiles,” the source tells Us of the group.
Paltrow has said in the past that her attitude toward food changed after her dad, Bruce Paltrow, got sick several years ago. “I began to consider the effects of food when my father was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998,” she told Beach magazine earlier this year. “I started to research anti-cancer diets in hopes that he would try to hit it from all angles.”
When Bruce died in October 2002 at age 58 due to complications of the cancer and pneumonia, Paltrow decided to eliminate dairy and gluten from her own diet.
“It’s about being mindful about what you are putting in,” she explained. “Good whole foods are the way we have eaten for generations. It’s amazing how good you feel when you just cut out the processed stuff.”
Man, it would be a form of torture to eat a carb fest in front of me, and expect me to only eat veggies. That girl has CONTROL!
