Gwyneth’s freedom-loving food philosophy

Gwyneth Paltrow keeps in shape by sticking to the same routine every weekday, not through restricting her diet.

The 42-year-old Academy Award-winning actress, who is mother to 11-year-old daughter Apple and nine-year-old son Moses with ex Chris Martin, is considered to be one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood.

Although she is the leader of healthy lifestyle brand GOOP, Gwyneth doesn’t believe in diet restrictions and she won’t enforce such beliefs on her children.

“For lunch I usually have a big salad with grilled chicken, and then for dinner I’ll have whatever I want,” she told Women’s Health magazine. “Most nights I eat with the kids, like, a stir-fry of chicken and broccoli or pasta or roast chicken and potatoes.

“My food philosophy is: Nothing should be ruled out. I don’t believe in saying, ‘You’re not allowed that.’ If my kids want a Shirley Temple with the radioactive cherry in it, go for it, you know?”

The Iron Man 3 star keeps herself in shape by sticking to a regular schedule.

And Gwyneth is impressed with the results of committing to an ongoing exercise regimen.

“I feel way more comfortable in a bathing suit now than I did 20 years ago,” she noted. "My routine is the same every weekday. I drop my kids at school. I do an hour of dance cardio and then I go to work.

“I’m not really a ‘beauty person.’ I believe, as cheesy as it sounds, in exercise, laughing, having sex, being yourself. I’m not like, ‘Then I use this masque that I make on my stove.’”

Gwyneth also confesses to indulging in beverages, revealing “me with no coffee is not a good look”.

Although she’ll most likely have a “smoothie” after working out, the thespian admits she lets loose on occasion.

“The other day I was flying and the turbulence was so bad, I was like, ‘F*** this.’ I had a Bloody Mary in the middle of the day,” she recalled.
