Gwyneth Paltrow: I am not on a diet; I like my pasta and cheese


Gwyneth Paltrow has said that she is refusing to go on a New Year diet, but is instead revamping her eating habits in 2013.

The actress explained in her January 10 GOOP newsletter that she enjoys Italian-style cuisine too much to limit herself.

She said: "I am not on a detox. I am not on a diet. I know, New Year's cleansing and all that. Not this year. Can't do it. Maybe later in the year. Maybe in the spring.

"So for now, I would like to continue with my pasta and cheese, but perhaps be more mindful of ingredients."

The mother of two, who is married to Coldplay musician Chris Martin, will soon release her second cookbook.

She interviewed her friend Dr Frank Lipman to list a group of superfoods she can incorporate into her daily diet.

Paltrow explained: "If you are going to eat pasta, why not serve it with a walnut pesto (walnuts are on his list)? You get my point We had great fun in the GOOP test kitchen coming up with these ways to incorporate these miraculous foods into very tasty recipes."
