The moment loyal goop readers have been waiting for is finally here.

Every year, lifestyle queen Gwyneth Paltrow releases a much-buzzed-about 7-day cleanse on her website that, like many detox plans, cuts out many of our favorite indulgences. And 2016’s plan — which dropped on Thursday — is no different.

While you might not be totally hyped to forego gluten, dairy, corn, soy, caffeine, alcohol, added sugar, red meat, shellfish, white rice or nightshades (tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, potatoes), we must admit that some of the meals look downright delicious.

Each day is broken up into five components — “first thing” (tea), breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner — and includes detailed instructions on how to make the Paltrow-approved meals, which include Chia PuddingFive Spice Salmon Burgers and Chickpea and Kale Curry, to name a few. The plan also includes lesser-known ingredients like ashwagandha, ho shou wu and cordyceps — all of which make up GP’s Morning Smoothie.

The Oscar winner took to her site to address the reason behind these annual cleanses, which she admits can feel restrictive in the beginning — especially for die-hard coffee drinkers — but is a must for those who went a little too hard on the turkey, stuffing and gingerbread cookies (read: everyone with a stomach).

“As always, the goal with the annual goop detox is to not try to pull off a week of starvation: It’s to simply clean up the menu and eat as well as possible, as a means for re-setting the palate (bye-bye shrimp toast and cheese plates), giving our guts a break, and stripping off a few extra pounds we just might have picked up at the end of the year,” Paltrow writes.

Will you be trying out goop’s 2016 detox?

The Latest Craze in Disco Styles Is See-Through Jeans—but Beware of Foggy Bottoms

Posted on

On a clear day, you can see forever—or at least that’s the wicked thought behind L.A. designer Agi Berliner’s transparent idea: see-through jeans. Exhibitionists notwithstanding, most folks wear them over bathing suits or as attention-getting evening wear with halters, garter belts and body stockings. Created for the disco crowd, the $34 jeans are selling like, well, hot pants. In just six weeks, 25,000 pairs have already been sold in such major department store chains as Macy’s, Bonwit’s and Saks.

“What’s limiting American designers is that we’re afraid to do something different,” says Berliner, 32, a Hungarian émigré who fled with her family to the U.S. in 1956. Agi thought up the gimmick in London while marveling at the way plastics were being employed by designers of punk fashion. In her L.A. office, where she designs for La Parisienne junior sportswear, Agi spent five days on the phone and six weeks testing to come up with the right plastic.

Agi herself tried out the French-cut jeans with the zipper in front, and quickly found several problems: Some plastics tore away from stitching, others wouldn’t bend and all fogged with perspiration. The ideal material proved to be a vinyl supplied by a bookbinder. The steam was eliminated with a series of vents behind the knees and in the crotch. “They’re no hotter than polyester pants,” claims Agi, “and if you wear them with tights, they won’t stick to your legs.”

Whatever the discomfort and despite the problem of Saturday night feverishness, discomaniacs report one major advantage of the plastic pants: no laundry bills. To keep Berliner’s see-through jeans clear, all the wearer needs is a little Windex.

I’m not taking her seriously when she still smokes. The whole detox premise is ridiculous any way. Just go back to your normal, non holiday way of eating again and you will be fine. To go from holiday indulging to some super strict regime is just unnecessary torture.

I’ll take her health advice when she stops smoking. Plus, stop with detoxing. Your body naturally detoxes itself. Just eat better (lots of greens and lean meats, ie clean) drink lots of water and workout 30 mins a day. Your kidney’s and liver does that for you. Jeez, people, stop falling for these diet tricks. The diet industry makes billions of dollars off hope and wishes. Just eat better and treat yourself in moderation.

TOO many complicated foods to go search and find. She can have her personal chef get it all AND prepare it for her. Not me.
I would rather fast and drink water with lemon than go thru all this. There are a lot easier detox plans out there.

Brooke above, I’ll meet you at In-n-Out AND bring a six pack of beer!!!
Cheers 😉
