Have you ever wondered what makes up Gwyneth Paltrow‘s diet? Sure, we’ve heard about the lifestyle guru’s penchant for gluten-free meals and how she may or may not deny her kids sweets — but is it all true?

The actress dispelled those rumors during an interview with Yahoo Beauty, where she discussed the public’s perception of her healthy eating regimen.

“I think there’s a lot of misinformation about what I actually eat,” she said, adding that while she keeps her kitchen stocked with organic snacks for her kids, Oreos have also found refuge. “I really don’t have any rules.”

Paltrow goes on to say that making healthy choices has been her goal since her father was diagnosed with cancer 20 years ago but that doesn’t mean her preference for balanced, whole foods always trumps cheat meals.

“For me the big things are really processed food and foods that have tons of chemicals and pesticides,” she says. “I try to stay away from that, but I love French fries and cheese and martinis and all that kind of thing.”

Paltrow’s comments come on the heels of the release of goop’s annual detox plan, the highly anticipated annual cleanse known for noting the importance of daily veggie, fruit and grain intake.

I don’t care what she eats or what she does. The woman is a total bore!

I think most people would still find what she eats extreme… well what she doesn’t eat. You can only take in so much organic air before you pass out.

The misinformation is entirely her own fault, for previously presenting herself as an unbalanced person in most aspects of life.

I love the way she talks about lifestyle choices to keep cancer away, yet chain smokes like a 1900s dockyard worker.

I don’t leave a response, but after browsing a few of the comments on. I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be only me or do some of the responses look like they are coming from brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are writing on additional online sites, I would like to follow anything new you have to post. Would you post a list of every one of all your social networking sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
