Like most everyone with eyeballs and a body, Irish cheese companyÂ Kerry Low LowÂ isÂ â€śsick of food advertising clichĂ©s.â€ťÂ They recently released a video parodying typical diet food ads geared toward women and–while itâ€™s funny and accurate–itâ€™s also a little suspect. Kerry Low Low is a company that sells reduced fat cheese products to women, so their parody of a diet ad is also a diet ad. More
Last week, we learned some very interesting things aboutÂ 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 ofÂ ingredientsÂ you won’t be using when cooking like Gwyneth Paltrow: coffee,Â alcohol,Â dairy,Â chicken eggs (more exclusive eggs are fine),Â sugar,Â shellfish,Â deepwater fish,Â potatoes,Â tomatoes,Â eggplant,Â corn,Â wheat,Â meat,Â soy andÂ all processed foods. If this seems a bit draconian (or an obvious symptomÂ 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 publisherÂ anticipatesÂ 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
Actress, lifestyle expert and GOOP person Gwyneth Paltrow is currently on promotional detail for her new “elimination diet” cookbook, It’s All Good, which features recipes that feature very little. In fact, it’s kind of a 180 from her domestic goddess wishÂ fulfillmentÂ debut, My Father’s Daughter, a book of three-car-garage-homestyle recipes like chicken and dumplings or stuffedÂ avocadosÂ (well, stuffed with veganaise).

Ladies! Sleeping with a light on could be making you fat! Worse still, sleeping in non-enveloping cocoon-like darkness could be… making you fat!
This is horrible news, because everything else already makes us fat. But apparently there is room for another thing. More
In completely horrible news, a company called FatLossFactor is ruthlessly targeting teenagers with eating disorders to sell diet products.
What with all this talk of Hollywood diets and the pressure to look thin in order to look good, it’s easy to forget that Anne Hathaway was actually on that starvation diet so she would look bad while playing an impoverished prostitute in Les Miserables. More
Every animal I saw for a long time reminded me of Wilbur the pig. Wilbur is meant to do tricks in the barnyard, not be dinner. More

When talking to Vulture about how she’s going to celebrate her multiple Emmy nominations, Lena Dunham said some things that would indicate she’s on the mother of all diets. Ask me how I know! More
First it was Atkins, then it was South Beach. But it’s been so long since a fresh, sexy diet revolutionizedÂ the self-esteem industry. …Until now. Have you heard of this new diet everyone’s talking about? It’s called “gluten free” and it’s inspired a lot of trend pieces. Miley Cyrus is doing it, Kim Kardashian went “g-free” too! Since I want people to love me the way people love them, I decided to look into a gluten free diet and I’m excited to tell you it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. Here, I’ve written and illustrated an extremely thorough guide that’ll show you how to go gluten free for life! More
I recently attended a local Weight Watchers meeting to speak about an upcoming charity walk/bike ride. Much to my surprise, when I walked in, the receptionist at the front table asked if I â€śneeded to be weighed.â€ť No, I donâ€™t â€śneedâ€ť to be weighed, I told her. No one â€śneedsâ€ť to be weighed. To me, weighing people in public is just offensive and humiliating. And it goes against everything I believe in about how to get people healthy.
I get that Weight Watchers is all about helping people lose weight. Really, I do. But I donâ€™t believe in scales. As a matter of fact, when I used to be a personal trainer (who worked with a lot of women trying to lose weight), I always advised them not to weigh themselves. Because, quite simply, weighing yourself is a recipe for disaster. More

Going on a wedding diet was always a bit embarrassing for me. And yet I did it. And I’m glad I did. I even thought that it had permanently changed my eating habits for the better. But somehow, at just over two months of being married (we’re almost at the Kardashian watermark, y’all), that is not actually what’s happening.
There is something about the looming deadline of a wedding that helped me to keep my eating habits in order. A month ago I was convinced that continuing on my diet would be a piece of cake. And now? A piece of cake? Why, I don’t mind if I do. Be right back.
