Gwyneth Paltrow – Its all good Delicious easy recipes that will make you look good and feel great YOU magazine

It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great
by Gywneth Paltrow

This is an important book. Gwyneth Paltrow – like many of us – has had major health issues and was advised that she needed to alter her diet and her approach to life and stress.  Gwyneth has had a number of miscarriages as well. After another recent set of health issues, when Gwyneth went for a number of tests – she found she had a anemia and a cyst.

‘I was a mess. I was vitamin-D deficient, I had anaemia, I had thyroid issues, my liver was congested, I had hormonal imbalances and a benign tumour on my ovary that had to be removed – I mean, it was crazy. I knew it was time for change.

Gywneth was advised on her diet and the need a dietary changes and also emotional changes too. Taking the experts advice on how she needed to amend her diet, brings us to the recipes in the new book. The recipes were developed to meet the exacting demands of cutting out numerous foods on the elimination diet she was advised to follow.

Many diets and health plans are now available, one for example is Dr Junger’s Clean Program and by comparing numerous diet plans Gwyneth has developed a system to identify the numerous diets by using a clever set of icons beside each recipe.

Read about icons, measurements and ingredients.
