Many of us equate summer holidays such as the Fourth with unfettered eating and drinking--not so for Gwyneth Paltrow, who is now on the heels of a three-week-long 'Clean' detox program as she simultaneously films "Iron Man 2."
"I feel pure and happy and much lighter (I dropped the extra pounds that I had gained during a majorly fun and delicious "relax and enjoy life phase" about a month ago)," she wrote to subscribers of her GOOP newsletter.
The cleanse, developed by Gwyneth's doctor and detox diet specialist, Dr. Alejandro Junger, consists of two liquid meals a day with a solid one (no processed foods, dairy, sugar, etc) in between.
Gwyneth is no stranger to resting her digestive system. She suffered through the Master Cleanse's lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper regimen last year and more recently shed some self-reported extra holiday weight with Dr. Junger's 'Clean' program.
Apparently she was pleased enough with the results to use the same detox program again this time around. "I followed it to the letter and I can report that it worked wonders," she wrote.
