Gwyneth Paltrow is undeniably very slim, and what with her healthy cookbooks and her lifestyle website Goop's complicated recipes - and the all round feeling that Gwyneth is one smug celeb - you’d think she’d have one tasty dietary plan. However, it sounds like her new healthy eating plan takes the cake. On second thoughts, cake would NOT be welcome on this diet.

Oscar winning actress Gwyneth Paltrow has an admittedly fantastic figure, but her amazing weight loss comes at the price of, well, food by the sounds of it!

The lifestyle website founder has released her winter detox diet, and it’s just horrible. Jennifer Lawrence once said: “you know there is that Kate Moss quote that’s like ‘nothing tastes as good as skinny feels’ and I’m like, I can name a LOT of things that taste better than skinny feels. Potatoes! Bread!” Well, Gwyneth Paltrow clearly does NOT share the same opinion.

It sounds like anything actually tasty is null and void in Gwyneth’s healthy eating lifestyle, which is based around consuming just 300 calories a day. She suggests hot lemon water for breakfast followed by a lean lunch of lentil and lemon soup.

Erm, yum?

Writing from the Goop website, the 41-year-old promises her new meal plan is: “warming, filling and doesn’t feel like a sacrifice.”

She continued: “Our winter detox has looser guidelines and restrictions than ones we’ve done in the past but here is what we’re avoiding: dairy, gluten, shellfish, anything processed (including all soy products), nightshares (potatoes;tomatoes, peppers and eggplant), condiments, sugar, alcohol, caffeine and soda.”

Throughout the day, Gwyneth suggests such tasty snacks as: herbal tea, one carrot blended into soup, and a handful of mixed seeds. Woah, calm down Gwyneth, we don’t want to overdo it!

Her stupid – sorry, unusual – diet plan has come under fire by nutritionists, and nutritional medical expert Dr Fred Pescatore told Radar Online: "The only foods on tap are foods meant to make you eliminate [waste] one way or the other. It is essentially a three-day fast with a bit of protein thrown in... There is no doubt that this will make you lose weight, as this is a starvation-type-diet with lots of liquid to make you feel full, but nothing to nourish the body or soul... It's basically no food or nutrition."

Do you think we’d feel better if Gwyneth just tucked into a steak and ale pie?
