Gwyneth Paltrow has found a detox diet specialist to help her lose the 'holiday excess' she admits she has gained over the Christmas period.
The actress is keen to lose a little winter weight in the New Year, but she refuses to have a crack at the infamous Master Cleanse fast, which she tried a year ago.
"I like to do fasts and detoxes a couple of times during the year, the most hardcore one being the Master Cleanse I did last spring. It was not what you would characterize as pretty. Or easy," the Sun quoted Paltrow, as saying.
So now, Paltrow has signed up a detox diet specialist to help her shed the pounds.
In a blog on Goop.com, she writes, "As I do not wish to subsist on lemon water in the middle of winter, I asked my doctor, a detox diet specialist, for the guidelines he uses to achieve a good detox that is not as hallucinogenic (in a bad way) as the Master Cleanse.
"What it came down to was this: you can detox easily and effectively while you continue to eat as long as you are cutting out the foods and other substances that interfere with the detoxification process."
She admits her New Year diet consists mainly of salads, fruit smoothies, chicken, soups and lots of water.
