Gwyneth Paltrow in Bathing Suit Does "7-Day Reset"
Gwyneth Paltrow knows how to get the attention of her followers! The Goop founder promoted her latest cleanse via social media this week, sharing a few photos and videos depicting an average day of her life while cleansing. And, in one of them, she shows off her body in a swimsuit while taking a sauna. "I recently did the G.Tox 7-Day Reset, so I thought it would be fun to do a photo dump (is that what the kids call it?) of a day on the kit. If you're looking for a reset, I couldn't recommend this one more. It's all about nourishment, eating real, delicious food, and taking time to slow down," she captioned the post.

She Is a Tracy Anderson Method Diehard
Gwyneth has declared herself "a total die-hard" fan of the Tracy Anderson Method, a dance-inspired workout. "Her method works so well for me. I've seen all these fads come and go, and nothing works for me the way that Tracy's approach does, so I really stick with it," she revealed to Shape. "She's amazing." "Many of you may already know of my passion for the Tracy Anderson Method and my investment in it. She has kicked my formerly sagging ass into shape and I will be forever grateful," she added on Goop.
She Loves Infrared Saunas
Gwyneth is all about infrared saunas, which she demonstrates in her latest social media post. "I love to take an infrared sauna; it's really detoxifying. It's a real gift to myself," she told Shape. "I haven't tried cryotherapy yet because I'm kind of scared to, but they say it's great for pain. Our diets are so full of inflammatory foods that I think we need to do increasingly extreme things to combat it."
She Gets Her Zen On
Gwyneth is all about meditation. She recently told Vogue that during the pandemic she went from doing it "sporadically" to every single morning. "I do Transcendental Meditation, so that's something you learn with a teacher and they give you a mantra. There's an app called Insight Timer that I use, and then sometimes when I need a little meditation in the afternoon [I use] The Breathing App. You follow a ball expanding and contracting and breathe along with it. Even five minutes is really helpful," she said. "Paparazzi'd while meditating…" she captioned a recent Instagram photo.
"At Goop they call me 'GP the guinea pig,' because I'll try anything," she told Shape. "I just tried a goat milk cleanse for eight days to rid my system of parasites. That was really interesting. It's only goat's milk and herbs. The theory is that we all have parasites, and they love the milk protein. So if you eat nothing else, they all come out of the intestinal wall and then you kill them with the herbs. I had to try it for Goop, but I felt so good after it."
Her Diet Is Clean
Gwyneth's goal is to "eat pretty clean during the day" by consuming "good proteins and lots of vegetables and not too much grain or sugar, and nothing baked," she told Shape. As the day progresses, she relaxes her approach, eating whatever she wants for dinner, but shying toward lean proteins like fish and chicken.
She Takes Supplements
Gwyneth takes supplements, and even makes them. "The way the modern food system is, we're always depleted of nutrients, so I take a good multivitamin, and a fish oil, and then I have other herbs for various things," she told Shape.
She Exercises Al Fresco
Gwyneth is a fan of getting her sweat on outdoors. "Always trying to get as close to Mother Nature as possible," she captioned a post of herself paddleboarding.
She Does Intermittent Fasting
Paltrow has incorporated intermittent fasting into her lifestyle. "This year, I've been working with my dear friend and functional medicine practitioner @drwillcole and experimenting with the program from his new book, Intuitive Fasting. Will's clear, but flexible, four-week plan combines intuitive eating with intermittent fasting and Ketotarian foods. It's designed to optimize our well-being and set us up to feel our best for all the other weeks to come," she wrote in a recent post.
