Gwyneth Paltrow flaunted her flat abs and hot bikini body for the June 2015 issue of Women’s Health, where she discussed her anti-aging diet, workout and beauty secrets.
Paltrow looks amazing at 43, thanks to a low-carb diet, daily exercise and plenty of sex, as Celebrity Health & Fitness previously reported.
“I believe, as cheesy as it sounds, in exercise, laughing, having sex, being yourself,” said Gwyneth.
Gwyneth, who was slammed after saying she put her kids on a gluten-free diet, now insists she doesn’t deprive herself or her family.
“My food philosophy is ‘Nothing should be ruled out,’ ” said Paltrow. “I don’t believe in saying, ‘You’re not allowed that.'”
Gwyneth said her mornings begin with a cup of coffee with half-and-half followed by a breakfast smoothie after she does at least an hour of exercise.
“For lunch I usually have a big salad with grilled chicken,” said Paltrow. “[For dinner] most nights I eat with the kids, like a stir-fry of chicken and broccoli or pasta or roast chicken and potatoes.”
Gwyneth also exfoliates every day and gets regular chemical peels and exfoliation treatments to keep her skin smooth and wrinkle-free, Examiner reported.
Her age-defying beauty secrets also include rigorous cardio daily exercise.
“Doing some cardiovascular exercise everyday is really good for my skin for detoxification and skin tone and color,” said Paltrow. “I do the Tracy Anderson Method, so I dance for an hour.”
“[My daily beauty routine] is very minimal,” said Gwyneth.“After I drop my kids at school, I always exercise and then I take a shower and I just put on moisturizer. If I have a meeting or something I’ll put on some mascara, but that’s as far as I go.”
The willowy 5-foot-9 blonde beauty works out up to two hours a day with longtime friend and trainer Tracy Anderson. Their workouts emphasize using light weights (no more than three pounds) and high repetitions of toning moves to sculpt lean muscle.
Paltrow recently came under fire after being named the new face of Restorsea, a high-priced skincare line that critics say most women can’t afford. But Gwyneth said you don’t have to use expensive wrinkle creams and lotions to look good.
“I use coconut oil a lot on my face, on my skin and in my cooking,” said Paltrow. “And I just started ‘oil pulling,’ which is when you swish coconut oil around [in your mouth] for 20 minutes. It’s supposed to be great for oral health and making your teeth white. It’s supposed to clear up your skin as well.”
Gwyneth loves to cook her own healthy meals at home, and is the author of two best-selling cookbooks, including It’s All Good.
While her job is to always look her best, Paltrow said she’s not quite ready to embrace plastic surgery. “I would be scared to go under the knife, but talk to me when I’m 50,” Gwyneth said. “I’ll try anything, except I won’t do Botox again because I looked crazy.”
