We haven’t heard much from our favorite lady Gwyneth Paltrow lately, but I think I’ve figured out where she is. She’s in hiding somewhere in her hibernation chamber, enjoying a limited diet of kale and more kale, and using some kind of Avatar technology to speak through other celebrities. The latest victim? Jennifer Aniston. Jen told New York magazine all about the time she had no choice but to eat a McDonald’s hamburger. And not just any hamburger, but the ultimate hamburger: the almighty Big Mac.There’s magic in that there special sauce, and it’s apparently horrible for Jen’s clean-as-a-whistle system.
I’ll never forget when Justin and I were on a road trip and we were so hungry. The only thing around was McDonald’s. I think I ordered a Big Mac. Wow, my body did not react well to that! It was like putting gasoline in a purified system. I am always trying to eat organic and natural foods, so that just made my stomach turn and made me feel terrible. And I think what you put in your body, as well as stress, is reflected in the quality of your skin.
Oh, Gwyneth. I hear you in there, and I’ve missed you so. But seriously. “The only thing around was McDonald’s”? There had to at least have been a Wendy’s or a Taco Bell nearby. I know for certain there were at least three Starbucks in the general vicinity where they could munch on a scone or two. But I’m also getting tired of my BFF McDonald’s name being dragged through the mud. Jen is also my BFF in my head, but in this case I gotta say that having one innocent hamburger with two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a sesame seed bun probably shouldn’t do such horrible things to your body. Maybe I’m just biased because I follow a strict “More McDonald’s French fries now!” diet, but it seems like maybe that’s a sign that you should broaden your food horizons. Or just slowly work your way up to the Big Mac and start with a simple salad. McDonald’s sells salads now, right? Just get the five-million-calorie dressing on the side.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to grab a McFlurry in my head with Jennifer Garner.
