That Gwyneth Paltrow‘s elimination diet book It’s All Good exists is less of a surprise than it not existing up until this point — it seems that the actress’ public perception as out of touch with the lifestyles of the bourgeoisie will, for now, remain intact.
Gwyneth Paltrow‘s elimination diet is indeed the sort of fare we’ve come to expect to the mastermind behind the Goop media … empire? As The Atlantic points out, no one said it better than Jezebel’s hilarious Lindy West — who even before Paltrow’s elimination diet book came out summed up the celeb gossip sport of Gwyneth mockery by first admitting it’s an old habit but adding:
” … the thing is that she just keeps doing stuff. I’m supposed to stop making fun of her just because we already made fun of her a bunch some other time? When she insists on continuing to do hilarious stuff? NNNNNOPE, SORRY.”
“Commitment to whimsy + clueless gusto + impenetrable privilege = the world’s best comedy. And making fun of her is pretty much a victimless crime because she’s literally the queen of earth and space.”
And Paltrow is on Gwyneth-brand with the elimination diet thing, a tome that was inspired by what Gwynnie thought was a major stroke but turned out to be a headache and anxiety leading her to begin tossing foods from her daily rotation. But what would have been an “oh, I see” for any other patient led Paltrow on a quest to turn a hypochondriac episode into a cookbook, after directed by her doc to “no coffee, no alcohol, no dairy, no eggs, no sugar, no shellfish, no deep-water fish, no wheat, no meat, no soy, nothing processed at all!”
Not really sure what that leaves for anyone to eat on Paltrow’s elimination diet? Us either. It seems we will all have to wait for these nutritional nuggets of wisdom from Gwyneth until the book is released to the sweating hordes on April 2.
