Gwyneth Paltrow Brings the Quote of the Day

gwyneth-weight - Gwyneth Paltrow Brings the Quote of the Day

On staying slim with exercise:

“Oh, 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. I can eat what I want, as long as I exercise, which is just as well, because if I put the word’ diet’ into my brain, I immediately gain a stone.”

… says Gwyneth.

  1. I’ve always thought that Gwyneth is incredibly beautiful.

    But she seems a bit…naive maybe?

    I think that Gwyneth watches what she eats more than what she lets on. I’m not saying that she starves herself. Not at all. I’m saying that she seems like that type that would eat incredibly healthy and doesn’t just eat whatever. Then again, I don’t know her so I have no way of knowing…

  2. What a good way to think about things!
    I only wish, (and I really mean wish) that I could have such a view on eating and exercise. I’m still recovering from an eating disorder and have been for the past 2 and half years. The thing is that now, (I look much healthier than I did before) it is still very difficult to having normal eating habits, which I don’t at all. I have a feeling that a good amount of the girls on this site are recoveries (or currently suffering) form some type of eating disorder, disorder eating, or obsessive thoughts about food/diet /exercise. I think that this quote exemplifies a healthy and happy lifestyle; knowing how your body works, being happy with it, and living a healthy routine to maintain it, something I wish upon everyone, as well as myself.

    • I agree that it seems like there are a lot of people on here who are suffering or have suffered from some kind of eating disorder. I am one of them, in fact. These days I think I’m pretty much over it, though, and feel stronger than ever. I was obsessed with diet and exercise back in the days, and now I eat mainly healthy but also indulge, don’t shy away from any kind of food and exercise several times a week (instead of several times a day), and I do it for fun and not out of anxiety. I am so happy that there actually seems to be such a thing as recovering from an ED, physically and mentally. I’m sure you can do so, too.
      I wish you all the luck and strength in the world! In fact, you are strong cause it takes a lot to live with an ED…you can use that to recover.

    • she lives in london with her british husband im pretty sure, if you spend time around people a lot you pick up things they say and their manurisms..not on purpose but because your used to hearing it that way…this happened to me when i was living in england for two years, i began speaking more like them….

      • Same, I whent there for a month only and I picked up all the slang just because everyone was constantly using it around me. It took a while of being back before I stopped calling line ups ‘cues’ and the trash can a ‘rubish bin’.

        • *queues and rubbish bin

          Know what you mean…after spending time in Oz, can’t help calling garbage cans ‘wheelie bins’

  3. She annoys me like no other. She comes across, to me that is, as an over privilege mean girl. Oh and I love how she has become “British” now, a stone gwennie, here we call it pounds, but I guess who are to high brow for us now!

    • this is so true! she is very elitist and this is so fake of her to say. she abhors fat people, haha, and sent this one very famous chubby chef(i forget who) a subscription to her 900/month gym. she is one of the least relatable people in hollywood, comes across very bougie.

      • I don’t know that story, but what’s wrong with paying for an overweight person to go to a nice gym? If anything, she’s saving their life; it sounds generous and kind to me.

        I get sick of people always saying they don’t like her. She’s a decent actress that has been in several movies that I like a lot (Se7en, The Talented Mr. Ripley), she seems beautiful and elegant. Just because she doesn’t reduce herself to common crudeness to appear more “relatable” doesn’t mean she’s some stuck up b—.

  4. I agree with Melissa. This is a great way to look at life and dieting.

    Like someone said, I’m sure she doesn’t just stuff her face with junk food. But perhaps she doesn’t crave junk. I don’t particularly like Big Macs and pizza all the time, but I won’t turn them down once in a while when I have a craving for them. I believe her, and think she’s probably like that.

    It’s much better to eat a balanced diet and work out if you want to be slimmer, than to not eat or constantly worry about what you’re eating.

  5. I interpreted this as Gwyn saying that it’s easier to maintain her weight than lose weight, which is probably true. If you’ve kept the same weight for years, then one unhealthy meal (or 10) isn’t going to suddenly make you balloon up. It’s easy to notice small gains and immediately correct them.

    I always am skeptical when celebrities say that they eat whatever they want, but it probably depends on your definition of “whatever i want.” I’m not the world’s healthiest eater, but there are certain foods (say McDonalds/doritos/twinkies/cheeze whiz) that I wouldn’t consume even if they had zero calories. So I can see where someone like Gwyn probably trained herself to only desire healthy foods.

    • yehh you’re right there….my friends criticised me once because i said i ate whatever i want… i don’t like fast food or junk food really because they don’t give me the same feeling of energy when i eat healthy food..some people just don’t crave unhealthy food

      • That’s true. Just because she says she eats whatever she wants, doesn’t mean she wants the same foods I would. If she ate whatever I want then she’d be a heffer.

      • How true … I’m barely fifteen and I hate junk food and soda; whenever I gorge on dishes like salad and chicken breast (some of my favourites) I get critisised for depriving myself!! It’s sad that we grow up in an era where ‘not eating junk equals to unnecessary starvation’.

        Gwyneth here must definitely feel the same way, and I guess we need to cut her some slack. I think she has a beautiful outlook on dieting and exercise. I wouldn’t exactly look up to her as an inspiration, but then again …

  6. I like the fact that she’s being honest about working hard to stay in shape, not many celebrities will admit to how hard they workout or how healthily they have to eat to stay in shape. It’s refreshing.

  7. Gwyneth famously cleanses, fasts, obsessively works out and eats very, very clean and healthy.

    There is nothing wrong with that. If being healthy and thin is a priority good for you!

    But we all know she doesn’t “eat whatever she wants” come on now Gwennie-poo!

  8. shes a gd actress, especially in the movie ´shakespear in love´ For all those who have not seen it, watch it!

  9. btw does anyone know if there is a place where you can go if u have a eating disorder= i crave sweet stuff all the time, and end up eating 2 much of it.

  10. First thing I’ve agreed with her on for a while. It’s funny how you don’t want to eat certain foods until you decide to go on a diet.
