Much as we like to tease Gwyneth Paltrow for her obsessively healthy eating, we have to applaud her for doing something positive with one of life's most difficult experiences. "I began to consider the effects of food when my father was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998," Paltrow tells Beach magazine. "I started to research anti-cancer diets in hopes that he would try to hit it from all angles."
The results of her studies are outlined in her latest book, "It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great." "It's about being mindful about what you are putting in," says Paltrow, whose husband Chris Martin, and their kids, Apple and Moses, all follow the meal plan. "Good whole foods are the way we have eaten for generations. It's amazing how good you feel when you just cut out the processed stuff."
