Paltrow sat down with Dr. Will Cole, host of the podcast The Art of Being Well, during which she answered the question, “What’s your wellness routine look like right now?”
While we’ve seen celebrity interviews go viral on TikTok before — like the Kate Gosselin Today interview that resurfaced and gave millions of TikTokers “red flags” — but Paltrow’s interview seems to be starting an important conversation about the term “wellness” and what it really means.
The video — a 40-second clip taken from an hourlong podcast episode — details the GOOP founder’s daily “wellness routine.”
According to the clip, Paltrow’s day begins with intermittent fasting and nothing that spikes her blood sugar — so just coffee. Around noon, she’ll have soup or bone broth for lunch. After that, it’s off for an hour of “movement,” followed by dry-brushing, then 30 minutes in her infrared sauna. She then ends her day with an early paleo dinner, which usually consists of “lots of vegetables.”
“It’s really important for me to support my detox,” Paltrow says at the end of the clip.
Inspired by her routine, many TikTokers took to the comment section to give Paltrow a new title.
“Almond mom final boss,” wrote another, this time liked by over 18,000 users.
“Almond mom realness ✨,” echoed another.
But it wasn’t just TikTokers who had strong opinions on Paltrow’s “wellness routine.” Professional dietitians dueted the viral clip to share their own opinions on the actress’s routine.
According to experts at Harvard University, a healthy meal is one that consists of 50% fruits/vegetables, 25% whole grains and 25% protein.
Based on Paltrow’s description of what she eats in a day, many TikTokers expressed their concern for her health in the comments.
“Is starving wellness?” one user asked.
“She did not list a single food item other than soup and vegetables,” another user observed.
“If you only eat healthy, what are you detoxing from??” one used wondered.
Many TikTokers conveyed their gratitude for the conversations happening in the comments.
“I’m so relieved with these comments. Young people are following her and she’s telling them this bs! 😳” one user wrote.
“These comments make me smile. We are so over the almond mom culture being normal. I love it,” another user commented.
