Don’t Tell Me What To Do: Diets Are For Feminists Too

Donât Tell Me What To Do: Diets Are For Feminists Too

Just last week, someone on Facebook accused me of perpetuating anti-feminist body hatred simply because I acknowledged that people diet with this post. It was very a frustrating charge to stomach because I don’t think it’s misogynistic to talk about dieting. It’s something that people do whether or not we talk about it and it’s counterproductive to give other women a hard time about their choices concerning their individual bodies. More »

We Will Soon Replace All Food With Soylent, The Nutritious Vitamin Sludge Of The Future

We Will Soon Replace All Food With Soylent, The Nutritious Vitamin Sludge Of The Future

As a lady blog (one of several!), we get bombarded with a lot of information about fantastical new diets all the time. For the most part, they’re a repackaging of the same fluffy bullshit that celebrities parrot ad nauseam in gossip weeklies–broccoli and fish! grilled chicken and salad!–but occasionally we encounter something extremely bizarre and new.

Kerry Low Low Diet Ad Parody Is… Actually A Diet Ad

Kerry Low Low Diet Ad Parody Is... Actually A Diet Ad

Like most everyone with eyeballs and a body, Irish cheese company Kerry Low Low is “sick of food advertising clichés.” They recently released a video parodying typical diet food ads geared toward women and–while it’s funny and accurate–it’s also a little suspect.

8 Imagined Recipes From Gwyneth Paltrow’s New Diet Cookbook, It’s All Good

8 Imagined Recipes From Gwyneth Paltrow's New Diet Cookbook, It's All Good

Last week, we learned some very interesting things about It’s All Good, the new “elimination diet” cookbook from GOOP leader Gwyneth Paltrow. Namely, we learned that it eliminates food.

Here’s a quick list of ingredients you won’t be using when cooking like Gwyneth Paltrow: coffee, alcohol, dairy, chicken eggs (more exclusive eggs are fine), sugar, shellfish, deepwater fish, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, corn, wheat, meat, soy and all processed foods. If this seems a bit draconian (or an obvious symptom of “laughable Hollywood neuroticism“)–you’re right. But nobody said it was easy being Gwyneth Paltrow. Well, maybe they did.

Anyway, the cookbook has been backordered everywhere and Paltrow’s publisher anticipates a big success, which is why we’re extremely pleased to bring you these eight healthful and delicious recipes from It’s All Good–exclusively on The Gloss. Enjoy! More »
