Masochistic Blogger Plans to Actually Do Gwyneth Paltrow's Detox Diet [overshare]
Gwyneth Paltrow's ridiculous new posture as a lifestyle guru is mockable enough from a distance, but one intrepid blogger has decided to live it. L.A. Magazine's Mary Melton has resolved to follow The Gwynster's "detox" regimen, all seven highly-detailed days of it:
Since rising at 7 a.m., I’ve subsided solely on a glass of lemon water, a cup of herbal tea, a periwinkle-blue smoothie (pictured) flecked like a piece of expensive stationery, and 11 ounces of coconut water. It may take California the next 15 millions years to float into the ocean, but I’m giving myself two days before it happens to me.
The economy is tanking, factions warring, infrastructures imploding. Who doesn’t need a good cleanse these days? This is why I’ve decided to heed Gwyneth Paltrow’s clarion call.
This is one of those times when we're really happy that we're a reader, not a do-er.
