GWYNETH Paltrow embarked on her strict macrobiotic diet in an attempt to cure her dying father.
The actress — who raises two children with Coldplay rocker Chris Martin — hoped her rigid eating plan would help film director dad Bruce Paltrow after he was diagnosed with throat cancer, .
“It’s obviously ridiculous, but I didn’t want him to die and the doctors said he had to be healthier,” Gwyneth said.
“So I started to read about how powerful the body can be if you do not poison it with processed food and white sugar — there are cases that show that sometimes people can heal themselves.”
Paltrow recently admitted the hardest part of her body to keep looking good is her butt.
The Country Strong star works out almost every day to stay in shape, and when she first started getting serious about exercise and healthy eating her trainer Tracy Anderson told she needed to change her “square” derriere.
“My butt! My butt, butt, butt,” Gwyneth said. “When Tracy met me, she said that I had a long, square butt that she was going to redesign, and I was like, ‘Yeah? Good luck.’ The amazing thing is, she was right! And it’s still changing!”
