Tess Holliday calls out Gwyneth Paltrow’s bone broth and veggie diet
Tess Holliday has condemned Gwyneth Paltrow’s daily diet, which includes “intermittent fasting” between 7pm and 12pm and eating bone broth for lunch.
The iron man Star, 50, has also faced criticism from nutritionists after she recently revealed her eating habits on an episode of the Dear Media podcast. The Art of Wellbeing with Dr. Will Cole.
On the podcast, Paltrow said she usually has dinner around 6 or 6:30 p.m. and wouldn’t eat again until 12 p.m. the next day. In the morning she drinks coffee or “celery juice with lemon or lemon water” because she doesn’t want “spikes”. [her] blood sugar”.
She then works out for about an hour in the morning, which is either “[taking] a walk, or I do Pilates, or I do my Tracy Anderson [routine]“.
After her morning workout, Paltrow said she does a “dry brush” and then goes into her “infrared sauna” for 30 minutes.
When she finally breaks her intermittent fast, Paltrow said she’s “very fond of soup for lunch” and “often bone broth for lunch.” For dinner, she follows a paleo diet and eats “lots of veggies” to “support.” [her] Detoxification”.
Holliday, a plus-size model who has previously opened up about living with an eating disorder, took to TikTok to share her thoughts on Paltrow’s diet.
“I don’t judge because I have an eating disorder. [But] Bone broth is not a suitable meal. And then just end the day with vegetables? But even so, people continue to give her airtime to give her a platform to take her “advice” because everyone is too scared of being fat,” Holliday said.
The 37-year-old model and body positivity activist recalled attending a “big fancy Hollywood event” a few years ago, where Paltrow was also present and sat down to the “menu.”
According to Holliday, Paltrow let others refer to her by their initials “GP” and was seated at a table with US designer and celebrity stylist Rachel Zoe.
She said: “It was a sit down dinner and we had a set course, a set meal. And [Paltrow] loudly letting everyone know, in this very tiny room – with Natalie Portman, Catherine O’Hara, you name it, they were there – that she and her table, who were a handful of her close friends, as she put it, were you wanted something different: pizza.
“But not just any pizza. Cauliflower crust pizza without cheese. And I don’t shadow anyone who likes cauliflower pizza, go ahead, do your thing. But everyone just laughed like it wasn’t a big deal.”
Holliday continued, “I’m not here to judge what people put into their bodies, especially as someone with a restrictive eating disorder. And I get taunted all the time for being fat, so how dare I talk about not feeding my body, right?
“But that’s not normal, and it’s affecting a whole different generation of young people who think it’s okay to eat like ‘GP’ is okay.”
She closed her video by admitting that she doesn’t “have all the answers,” but pointed to “all the talk about Ozempic and all these other weight-loss drugs” as a reason to speak out against the “exhausting” diet culture.
“It’s okay to feed your body. Carbohydrates are not the devil. Fat isn’t bad. And I mean fat in your food and on your body. It’s not bad. But hey, all for a dollar, all for people’s mental health costs,” added Holliday.
Her comments come after several nutritionists on TikTok also criticized Paltrow’s routine. Nutritionist Kim Lindsay tells The Independent that Paltrow “promotes many restrictive diets such as intermittent fasting, Paleo, replacing meals with low-calorie liquids (coffee and bone broth), and detoxification.”
“We know that dieting is unsustainable and can lead to weight fluctuations and an increased risk of chronic diseases and disorders,” she added.
The Independent reached out to Paltrow’s rep for comment.
