Gwyneth Paltrow has revealed her secrets to looking so great and maintaining her lean figure.
Writing for The Telegraph, Gwyneth Paltrow said that the key to staying in shape is a consistent exercise regime, regular detoxes and the occasional weekend treat.
Gwyneth Paltrow, 40, is an avid fan of Tracy Anderson – author and multi-platform wellness entrepreneur whose clients also include Madonna and Shakira.
Tracy Anderson and Gwyneth Paltrow are now business partners. Together they’ve produced four exercise DVDs and a book, Tracy Anderson’s 30-Day Method.
Gwyneth Paltrow also reveals that working with Tracy Anderson has completely changed her body.
The actress said: “Still, when I first started working with Tracy, finding motivation was hard. She advised me to think of exercise as an automatic routine, no different from brushing your teeth, to avoid getting distracted. Now it is part of my life.”
Gwyneth Paltrow explains how important routine is and that she exercises Monday to Friday at 10 a.m. and always sticks with it.
She advises people to create muscle tone and boost their metabolism by moving more and says we sit around for too much of the day.

In terms of her diet, Gwyneth Paltrow – who famously follows a super healthy macrobiotic diet – says that scheduling in a detox is very important.
After a gruelling schedule and lapse of overindulgence two years ago, Gwyneth Paltrow was left feeling fatigued and faint and a trip to the doctor later revealed that she was anaemic, vitamin D deficient, and that her stress levels were sky high.
Her doctor prescribed an elimination diet banning coffee, alcohol, sugar, eggs, wheat, meat and processed food to clear out her system and help her body heal – and she thinks everyone else should get on board.
Gwyneth Paltrow did, however, warn of the dangers: “I’ve done juice cleanses in the past, and in my twenties I did the Master Cleanse, which left me hallucinating after 10 days.
“Be aware: a juice detox can crash your metabolism and lead to future weight gain.”
To avoid getting distracted from your healthy eating plan, she says you should always keep healthy snacks nearby.
Gwyneth Paltrow loves healthy salad dressings (her favorite being her homemade Mexican green goddess dressing – goat’s yogurt, jalapeño, coriander and honey), which she stores in the fridge for the rest of the week and then drizzles over salads and chicken.
When it comes to monitoring weight, Gwyneth Paltrow believes it’s more important to measure in inches with a measuring tape because weighing yourself can lead to shame and guilt.
Although she maintains that following a healthy, balanced diet is key, Gwyneth Paltrow admits you should always allow yourself programmed treats.
“I often have a glass of red wine in the evening and smoke a cigarette on a Saturday. I love those moments because they are just the right amount of naughty.
“That balance keeps you vibrant. You have to live your life, after all.”
According to reports, Kim Kardashian can’t wait to get back in the gym and regain her slim figure after giving birth to her baby daughter.
“She’s already looking ahead to when she can exercise again,” a source told Us Weekly.
Another added: “She really wants to get back into shape. It’s important to her.”
Kim Kardashian, 32, was working with trainer to the stars Tracy Anderson throughout her pregnancy, but the publication also claims she is considering hiring Gunnar Peterson.
Gunnar Peterson is responsible for helping Kim Kardashian’s younger sister Khloe, 28, with her recent 25 lbs weight loss.
While she is not able to start exercising just yet, Kim Kardashian is allegedly already watching what she eats.
The magazine claims that the reality star’s hospital room is chock-a-block with flowers but she has insisted well-wishers are not allowed to bring any tasty treats for her to eat.
“She has over 30 bouquets from loved ones,” a source said.
“She told everyone not to bring sweets – she said she doesn’t need any temptations.”

It is believed that Kim Kardashian and her daughter, whose name is yet to be revealed, will stay in hospital until the baby, who was born five weeks prematurely, reaches five pounds.
While Kim Kardashian and the little one are getting some rest, the baby’s father Kanye West has apparently been hard at work.
The rapper’s creative juices have been flowing since he welcomed his daughter into the world.
“He’s been really inspired by the birth,” a source told Life & Style.
“He’s written four songs already.”
The insider added that while Kanye West, whose album Yeezus was released on Tuesday, has been busy with his music, he has also been very attentive to his two girls.
“Kanye is actually really being good right now,” the source said.
Kim Kardashian is unsurprisingly enamored with her child and gushed to a friend that the little one “is so cute and sweet”, according to Us Weekly.
But she had a stressful time during the birth over the weekend.
Warned by doctors that she was most likely suffering from the life-threatening condition preeclampsia, Kim Kardashian was forced to deal with going into premature labor on Friday night to save the life of her baby girl.
Kim Kardashian showed off her blossoming baby bump in a bikini during a recently family holiday to Greece.
Kim Kardashian, 32, displayed her curvy frame in a burgundy two piece in a photograph featured on the cover of this week’s issue of Us Weekly.
“Kim is feeling very confident in her body,” a source, who spent time on the Greek islands with the Kardahians, told Us Weekly.
“She had no second thoughts about wearing bikinis on the trip.
“Three months ago she just wanted to have the baby and be done. Now she is feeling more feminine and more maternal.”
Kim Kardashian has been plagued by Internet trolls and critics of her pregnancy weight gain – she recently admitted she has trouble finding flattering clothes for her figure.
“I’ve gotten wider but my belly hasn’t popped yet,” she blogged back in March.

“So I struggle finding things that don’t make me look heavy.”
Kim Kardashian has previously acknowledged her body changes have been “hard to accept”, and a source told the magazine that the stinging criticism had prompted her to swap her favorite clinging clothes for looser ensembles.
Focused on staying in shape throughout her pregnancy, Kim Kardashian has ensured she’s made time for regular exercise with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson.
“Kim is working hard but listening to her body,” Tracy Anderson told Us weekly.
“We focus mainly on her arms and legs, training one hour four times a week, depending on how she feels.”
Meanwhile, the reality star’s mother Kris Jenner also revealed Kim is in a good place with her first pregnancy.
“She’s just embracing the whole thing,” Kris Jenner told Us Weekly.
“It just makes me very proud. She’s happier than she’s ever been.”
Kim Kardashian is in the third trimester of her pregnancy – she and boyfriend Kanye West are expecting their first baby in the summer.
However, the source said that Kim Kardashian has a “high pain threshold” and is not worried about childbirth.
“Kim is not scared at all and has no fears,” the insider said, adding that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West will definitely not be airing footage from the birth on E!
And although Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have spent a great deal of time apart recently due to work commitments, things are said to be going better than ever in their relationship.
“They talk 100 times a day,” said a friend.
“They never let more than two weeks go by without seeing each other.”
In fact, Kanye West is said to have spent a substantial amount of time on creating a nursery for the new arrival at his Paris pad – Kim Kardashian left her family in Greece to jet in to the French capital to check it out for herself.
“They have a huge apartment there,” said a source.
“She wanted to check on the place because Kanye has been busy making the cutest baby room.”
