Paltrow added that her diet was based on her medical results and “extensive tests that I’ve done over time.”

She concluded that the podcast episode was meant to be a “transparent look at a conversation” between her and her doctor.

“It’s not meant to be advice to anyone else. It really is what worked for me, and it’s been very powerful and very positive. This is not to say that I eat this way all day, every day. And by the way, I eat much more than bone and vegetable broth,” Paltrow said. “I eat full meals, and I also have plenty of days to eat whatever I want. You know, have chips and whatever. My baseline has been to try to be healthy and eat foods that really calm down the system.”

In the original podcast, Paltrow told Dr. Cole that she intermittently fasts.

I eat dinner early at night. I do a good intermittent fasting. I usually eat something around 12. In the morning, I eat something that doesn’t raise my blood sugar, so I have coffee. But I really like soup for lunch. I eat bone broth for lunch many days,” Paltrow said.
