Gwyneth, Gwyneth--people may listen to you

A sassy UK blogger took on actress Gywneth Paltrow's "diet." Let's see, what was the word she used? Oh--I know--insane.

Sure, Paltrow is stick-thin, or maybe to some, a little scrawny. According to this blogger, Kate Moss once said, "Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels."

Kate Moss was well paid to be a coat hanger and with the help of coke, sort of was one.

But some foods do--let's face it--taste better than skinny feels.

Paltrow's new "winter" diet is 300 cals a day, according to this. She calls it a "detox." I guess your body throws off substances as it fights to maintain a pulse. Paltrow won't eat: gluten, shellfish, anything processed incl soy, potatoes, tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, condiments, sugar, alcohol, caffeine and soda.

Hmmm. So what does she eat?

Herbal tea, one carrot blended into soup, a handful of seeds, hot lemon water, maybe lentil soup.

Calm down, Gwyneth, the blogger gasped. You don't want to overdo it.

If you were thinking of going on a "juice fast" or an all-foods fast, think again. Your body will slow down and when you get bored with it, will go into a frenzy packing weight back on.

If you must, add a couple of fruit and veggies a day. And not every meal calls for dessert.
