Here’s our stance about celebrity “cleanse” diets: Do not try this at home. Do not try this, ever. Do not think that just because Gwyneth Paltrow told you over at GOOP that living off of smoothies and raw vegetables will put body in its rightful feng-shui or whatever, that it is healthy and/or safe and/or will land you a role in Iron Man 2. Of course, our advice comes too late for Giuliana Rancici, the E! News host who was livid after she followed her doctor’s suggestions of gaining 7 pounds on her tiny frame to better increase her chances of getting pregnant, and then freaking out several weeks later when she still didn’t have a baby in her stomach. (Does she know that she has to do other stuff to get pregnant? Maybe we should shoot her an email?)
Anyway, now to spite her doctor for not giving her a little non-fat baby, she’s turned to Gwyneth’s personal colon cleanser specialist, Alejandro Junger, who is all about the raw vegetable/smoothie combo. “I loved it, she said in a Junger-Tweeted video, “I can’t do the all liquid diet so this was perfect for me. I lost right from my stomach where I needed to.” Exactly. Right where the baby would be. Perfect.
