Gwyneth Paltrow says she starves her kids of carbohydrates: "We're left with that specific hunger"
Daily Mail (UK) ^ | 3/12/13 | Daniel Bates

Posted on 03/12/2013 1:49:02 PM PDT by SilvieWaldorfMD

She has tried the macrobiotic diet, the kale and lemon cleanse and only eating salad for days on end. But now Gwyneth Paltrow has admitted that she has begun inflicting her obsessions with food on her own children - by starving them of carbohydrates.

Miss Paltrow, 40, said that that she avoids feeding pasta, bread or rice to Apple, eight, and Moses, six, because it is bad for them, even though they are left ‘craving’ the food.

Her decision was based on the fact that everyone in her house - including husband Chris Martin - is supposedly intolerant of gluten, dairy and chicken’s eggs.

Miss Paltrow’s comments are an admission that her habit of going for the latest fad diet is filtering down to how she behaves as a mother.

She has in the past told how she snacks on almonds when she is hungry rather than cave in and have a proper meal. She spent her 20s on the macrobiotic diet during which time she ate mostly vegetables and beans and chewed her food more thoroughly than usual.

In her new cookbook, called ‘It’s All Good,’ which is released next month, Miss Paltrow devotes an entire chapter to grains but is deeply sceptical about them. She writes: ‘Every single nutritionist, doctor and health-conscious person I have ever come across seems to concur that (gluten) is tough on the system and many of us are at best intolerant of it and at worst allergic to it.'

You'd be surprised how many FReepers agree wholeheartedly with this bizarre human being, but I doubt they will defend her brand of idiocy here. She doesn't look healthy, and I'm sure this ridiculous diet of hers has something to do with it. Too bad she's forcing it on others who trust her to look out for their well being. You gotta have a license to go fishing but any moron can be a parent.

The Freepers you refer to mostly include meat, eggs, fish, and dairy in their low carb diets, and don’t include the kids. It sounds like GP wants to live on tree nuts and miso soup.

That means the poor kids have two strikes against them: 1) Stupidity genes from Mom, 2) IQs further degraded because stupid mom, starved them of carbs.

“You gotta have a license to go fishing but any moron can be a parent. “

Do keep in mind that if we go to licensing parents it will be our delightful government that issues said licenses. I doubt many FReepers would make the cut.

Leave licensing out of it. Keep laws against child abuse and neglect (and enforce them).

Gluten is historically one of the most important proteins in the nutrition of the West. The poor ate bread; see the Pater Noster. The anti-gluten nonsense by people who are not suffering from celiac disease is mostly fadish.

Paltrow isn't “low carb,” she's no carb. She's literally starving her kids of carbohydrates. It's an apt description. Kids need carbs, lots of them. It's also stupid and dangerous to do what she does. There are more than a few here who blame carbohydrates (and gluten) for all sorts of afflictions. They're no different than Paltrow, but I doubt they'll admit to that relationship on this thread.

My brother has from 45-50 food, pollen etc. allergies. I’m working on “The Plan” by Lyn-Genet Recitas & lost 5 lbs in 4 days. Finding out what I’m reactive to so I can mostly avoid those items. Already knew ahead of time that I cannot have milk & problems with ice cream. I think if a person finds out what foods, drinks to avoid without going on some stupid diet it will work a lot better for a person. I feel sorry for her kids having to deal with their wacko parents food plan.

. There are more than a few here who blame carbohydrates (and gluten) for all sorts of afflictions.

The eternal question is "what is a moderate amount", and can it vary based on genetics and broader regional factors (Eskimos and Ecuadrians probably have different ideal diets).

I had thought you were talking about Atkins type dieters, who frequent this board. Atkins himself advocated uping the carbs until undesireable side-effects (e.g. weight gain) occurred. He also recommended "good" carbs. Mainly vegetables, but fruit as well.

Kids do need carbs. So do runners and other highly energy athletes. Some sources are better than others. Some people do have problems with gluten. There are tests for that sort of thing, and the bread of today does have substantially higher gluten contents than the bread from biblical times. Even that bread (which can still be made from "heritage" grains) has some gluten in it.

I don't get these women on the verge of 40 pretending they can remain 29 forever. If you are talented, you can go the Meryl Streep "serious actress" route; if you have a permanent place in pop culture you can go the Julia Roberts route; you can go the Jane Russell route, fill out a bit, enjoy life and hawk girdles, or you can retire mostly from the public eye, attend the occaisonal "Grand Opening " ribbon cutting and spend some time with your husband and children. Aging quarterbacks have to face reality at some point, and som do actresses and models whose currency is largely their youthful appearance.

Actually the majority of human beings are lactose intolerant.

Almost all mammals shut down the gene for the enzyme that digests lactose (lactase) after infancy. Most Northern Europeans and some African populations have mutations in that control region and express lactase throughout life. It is a very popular mutation - but the default setting (and the majority of human beings on the planet) are NOT lactose tolerant as adults.

Paltrow sure wasn’t avoiding carbs when she went on that PBS food tour of Spain with Mario Batali and NYT food critic Mark Bittman. (BTW, the spains actress in that series, who’s name escapes me, was smoking hot).

Paltrow sure stuffed her face full of the most exotic and expensive fare that Spain has to offer including gallons of wine and spanish paella which is full of rice.

The Freepers you refer to mostly include meat, eggs, fish, and dairy in their low carb diets

Also non-starchy vegetables.

You might want to get off the pasta and wheat, although it wouldn’t hurt to spend a few bucks and check with the doctor for gluten intolerance.

But no rice? No eggs?

No mention of potatoes, but probably none of them, either.

Crazy.

I'm a follower of Dr. Joel Fuhrman's "Eat to Live" regimen, where 60% of one's calories are from green leafy veggies & beans/legumes.

Are my children on it? Heck NO! I'll make pasta with marinara sauce and bison/venison/beef for them, and I'll admit to having a bowl of it, too.

What the regimen has done for me is to replace sugar intake with fresh fruits and vegetables, something I should have done years ago. I do like the fact that my kids have been eating less fast food over the past 5-6 months.

I follow Fuhrman's plan at least 80-85%. Trust me, it's not a "diet". I've never eaten more food in my life. Dinner is usually a large salad (2 quart bowl) with a 12 oz bag of steamed vegetables. I'll have 6-8 oz of baked/rotisserie chicken every other day, and fish 1-2 times/week.

Problem with this approach is later in life they will over eat to compensate for the depriving they received earlier in life. I like her morals. She married one time and has stayed married. Her parents did a great job. Her parents stayed married until his death. Now politics...not good but that has nothing to do with the story. How she raises her children should not be a concern of conservatives at all.

Many populations seem to do fine with their bones even without dairy products. Other populations eat a lot of cheese which is low in lactose. There is more than one way to skin a cow. ;)
