How to Detox for the Holidays Exactly Like Gwyneth Paltrow
Most people detox and cleanse after the holidays (if at all). But if you're Gwyneth Paltrow—who certainly isn't most people—you get ahead of the gluttonous game by cleansing your body before any holiday indulgence even occurs.
In conjunction with Goop's detox specialist, Dr. Alejandro Junger, the actress published an extensive document on her lifestyle website entitled "The Goop/Clean Pre-Holiday Cleanse." The 42-page article (yep, you read that right) details the steps you need to take to "hit the party circuit feeling slightly more in-check" this season. They include eliminating the usual suspects (gluten, dairy, sugar, and alcohol) and adding more whole foods to your diet. It's pretty par for the course as far as cleanses are concerned, down to the awkward section on the importance of "taking out the trash" of your body on a daily basis—we'll let you decode that one.
Paltrow is starting the cleanse today, Monday, November 10, so head here to read the veritable thesis on how you can rid your body of toxins on her timeline, though any seven-day period will work. Recipes are included, in case whipping up a malted maca milkshake isn't already part of your repertoire.
