Super-fit actress Gwyneth Paltrow loves to exercise not only for her mind and body, but so she can eat her favorite foods.
“I work out so I can eat what I want,” Paltrow, 39, told the October 2012 issue of InStyle UK. “I adore food and have loved cooking for the past 20 years.
“My favorite foods are savory and if I allowed myself an treat, it would be fried food, or a baguette with smelly French cheese and wine, followed by a confit of duck and French fries.”
She also said:
“Genetics play a part, but sweating it out every day is detoxing. I also drink a lot of water, take Omega oils and keep my regime simple: a cleanser, face oils and Embryolisse moisturizer.
“Exercise is key for me, even if it’s just 15 minutes of yoga to get the blood flowing,” Gwyneth told Elle. Paltrow also drinks lots of water, takes vitamins “religiously” and follows a high-protein, low-carb diet that limits processed foods, gluten and dairy.
“I never have time to go to a spa, but I love a hot bath with Epsom salts in the evenings. I prefer old fashioned vinegars to essential oils or bubbles.”
