Skip to comments.Gwyneth Paltrow says she starves her kids of carbohydrates: "We're left with that specific hunger"

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 chickens eggs.
Miss Paltrows 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 Its 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.'

I presume somebody has called Child Welfare on her?
She and the wookie......Food Police....
Too bad she doesn’t live in NYC — Mayor Bloomberg would give her an award...
How about ostrich eggs?
A couple at my kids grade school were like this. Their boy was significantly smaller physically and slower mentally.
Why on earth is someone who self-admittedly has dysfunctional eating habits writing a book on nutrition (and thinking that people will buy it)?
If she gives fruit to her daughter Apple, is that cannibalism?
Gluten intolerance has gotten to be a fad...It’s an “attention” getter....like bad behavior. Same thin with lactose...
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.
I happen to see Mommie Dearest on TV right now, and its good to know that Joan Crawford’s spirit is alive in well in 2013...
there is gluten-free pasta. there’s rice pasta.
Apple? ..the poor kid.
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.
