Gwyneth’s body secrets


October 21, 2011

Gwyneth Paltrow’s sexy figure and flawless complexion is down to a few simple strategies: sleep, exercise and eating well.

But sleep is the most important, she says. The Oscar-winning actress – who has two children, Apple, seven, and five-year-old Moses with husband Chris Martin – admits if she doesn’t get a lot of rest, it shows in her appearance. She said: “For me, sleep is a major thing. I don’t always get it, and when I don’t, I look like I’ve been hit by a truck.”

Gwyneth also credits drinking lots of water, taking vitamins “religiously” and having at least one cup of coffee – with almond milk – each morning to help maintain her youthful looks.

The 39-year-old beauty detoxes twice a year and is a fan of the Clean Program, an elimination diet that lasts for three weeks and allows a daily lunch. She told a radio station: “I find it very rejuvenating. It’s like being high.”

And her workout? Gwyneth – who credits celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson with her amazing figure – has previously said she doesn’t like to diet and eats what she likes because she exercises so much.
She said: “I had to work hard to get it like this, but now I’m here it’s so great because I don’t have to think about it. I can just enjoy life. What a relief is that?”
