Fit at 50: how Gwyneth Paltrow does it

Many will agree that actress Gwyneth Paltrow looks stunning, and now it has been revealed how she manages to maintain a slim figure in her 50s. "I notice that the older I get, the more drawn I am toward monitoring my health, doing blood work, and collecting data about inflammation levels, blood sugar levels, sleep, vitamins, etc.," she says.

"Your body rebounds a little less quickly from overindulging — staying healthy takes a little more intentionality." "It's important to have some grace around the aging of your body, to be forgiving," she says. "Okay, well, maybe my skin or my muscle won't bounce back here the way it used to, and that's okay.

You have to recalibrate." "I actually feel great turning 50," she says in Goop. "I feel really lucky that I have my health (touch wood) and strength in my body. I feel like many of the decisions I made in my late 20s, my 30s, and my 40s are paying dividends now." In addition to yoga, she goes dancing, cardio training, and weight lifting, she trains five times a week.

Gwyneth Paltrow's Diet

"I maintain a very clean diet. Last year, I cut down on alcohol and focused on lowering inflammation. What's turned out to be best for me is [the] paleo [diet], so I'm grain-free, sugar-free, eating lots of vegetables and clean protein.

Lots of fish, lots of olive oil." "We're [she and her husband] always getting some exercise in, even if it's just a nice long walk, trying to follow the patterns people do in the Blue Zones: spend time with people we love and keep nurturing our own relationship." Drinks large amounts of water.

In an interview with Marie Claire Australia magazine, she said that she eats a lot of vegetables and avoids fried foods. For breakfast, prepare a smoothie of almond milk, coconut oil and protein powder with vanilla flavor.
