Goop, she's done it again!
Already stick thin Gwyneth Paltrow has startled her friends by vowing to lose at least five more pounds, RadarOnline.com has learned.
And she's turning to an old plan that many think is disgusting--and even unhealthy--to achieve her goal, an insider revealed.
"Gwyneth is leaning on her old diet trick, high colonics, in order to lose at least five to seven pounds," the source told Radar.
"She has been going to Dr. Alejandro Junger, her New York city colonic specialist, for years to give her weight loss a little boost and she's paying him visits again."
Those who try colon cleansing hope to remove feces and toxins from the colon by consuming lots of high fiber shakes and dietary supplements.
And Dr. Junger has devised a 21-day "clean program" which features his special regimen that has been enthusiastically praised by Paltrow, 41, on her Goop web site.
"I can report that it worked wonders," she has previously raved in a testimonial for Dr. Junger's shakes and supplements.
In his plan, dieters only consume one solid meal a day at lunchtime, while downing fiber-rich shakes and supplements with healthy snacks for breakfast and dinner.
Some experts think the colonic process is medically sketchy and can cause more harm than good.
In Paltrow's case, those who care about her fear she's wasting away!
"Her friends don't want to see her lose any more weight and think it's totally gross, but Gwyneth is such a fan of the process she even sells her own $425 colonic kits on her site," the source said.
In addressing the alleged epic VF Paltrow "takedown piece" (which has been shelved for now) Carter revealed to readers in a magazine editor's note he'd talked to the actress about her public reputation.
When Paltrow asked Carter what to do about the haters, he said, "I suggested putting on 15 pounds."
And on March 25 it was announced Paltrow and her hubby of nearly 11 years, Chris Martin, had mutually decided to end their marriage.
"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate," the couple said in a joint statement.
"We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
