Actress Gwyneth Paltrow: Three Week Juice Diet Worked Wonders

Gwyneth Paltrow is slimmer thanks to a mostly juice detox diet she followed for three weeks. "I feel pure and happy and much lighter," the actress writes in her GOOP newsletter. "I dropped the extra pounds that I had gained during a majorly fun and delicious 'relax and enjoy life phase' about a month ago."

Paltrow goes on: "This program allowed me to work and exercise regularly, something I cannot do if I am on a liquid-only detox." New York-based cardiologist Dr. Alejandro Junger explains the "Clean" detox works by cutting out most food and "reducing digestive work so detox can occur in full mode.

The Clean Program eases digestion by providing two liquid meals a day and a solid one in between, eliminating allergenic and mucus-forming food, which frees up even more energy," the doctor writes. "This program allowed I followed it to the letter and I can report that it worked wonders," Paltrow says. "This thing is amazing."
