Steamed vegetables diet
Gwyneth Paltrow gives new meaning to the phrase "veg out." The actress, 40, has worked hard to get the body she has now, and she's determined to keep it -- even if that means eating just steamed veggies while everyone around her chows down on pasta and pizza.
That was the scene at New York eatery Serafina East Hampton on Aug. 20, when Paltrow and her husband, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, took kids Apple, 8, and Moses, 6, to dinner with a couple of friends. A source tells Us Weekly that the group ordered a carb-filled feast, but that the Oscar winner didn't indulge in any of it.

"Gwyneth didn't touch the carbs, " the source notes. "She only ate the steamed vegetables. So everyone else had a pizza and pasta feast while she ate her vegetables and drank sparkling water."
Her family, meanwhile, had no qualms about loading up. After digging into plates of spaghetti and pizza margherita, they sampled several of the restaurant's desserts, including chocolate souffle, apple pie, and ice cream.
"They seemed really happy, lots of smiles, " the source tells Us of the group.

Paltrow has said in the past that her attitude toward food changed after her dad, Bruce Paltrow, got sick several years ago. "I began to consider the effects of food when my father was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998, " she told Beach magazine earlier this year. "I started to research anti-cancer diets in hopes that he would try to hit it from all angles."
When Bruce died in October 2002 at age 58 due to complications of the cancer and pneumonia, Paltrow decided to eliminate dairy and gluten from her own diet.

"It's about being mindful about what you are putting in, " she explained. "Good whole foods are the way we have eaten for generations. It's amazing how good you feel when you just cut out the processed stuff."
That said, the Goop founder does have her guilty pleasures. "I love Starbucks -- I'll have a cappuccino, " she confessed to British Cosmopolitan in July. "My guilty snack in the U.K. is cheese, and in America, things on buns: a lobster roll and French fries, or a turkey burger with cheese."

All you can eat vegetables while on a diet?2010-06-07 15:31:44 by aggressivedoggy
I was wondering if I was looking to lose weight, but I have a big appetite, could I gain weight if I eat a lot of vegetables? For example I love steamed cauliflower, I just ate almost half a head right now since dinner is 2 hours away. Would that set me back or is it ok to eat that much and still expect fat loss? Thanks

If you treat pregnancy as an excuse to switch to an all-you-can-eat-ice-cream diet, you'll have trouble taking the weight off.
of course, even if you grow a perfectly healthy baby on nothing but brown rice, steamed vegetables, and non-fat yogurt, you still have the "stretch" factor.

I suppose it's worth noting that I've recently changed my diet. Previously, I was eating an insane amount of high-fat, bad-for-you foods like Papa John's Pizza and McDonalds. I recently (about three months ago) changed to a low-fat, high-fiber diet, ditched sodas in favor of flavored waters, and started trying to take care of my body.
I do eat a lot of fruit (mainly bananas, which are very healthy for non-diabetics) and vegetables (mainly steamed). This helped somewhat with general depression, but not nearly enough to be a real solution.
I honestly doubt a raw-food diet would actually work - raw-food diets are one of those mythical cures that's supposed to treat everything from cancer to depression to diabetes to anything.

With my eczema I found that eating Wheat made me skin much worse. I did a detox diet program and my skin cleared up after a week - but it's VERY hard to keep up with the restrictions. The banned foods were Sugar, Wheat, GLuten, Dairy, corn, caffeine, alcohol, eggs, nightshade vegetables, -- Crap, I think I'm forgetting something but, anyways-- Basically you have rice milk and rice puffs or amaranth muffins etc for breakfast, Bean soup and salad for lunch and a meat with steamed veggies and rice or quinoa for dinner. It's really hard and you have intense cravings the first few days, after you skin clears up for a week or so you can add one banned item per week or so and see if you have a reaction before adding another (some reactions are delayed so that's why you wait a week or so)
