Gwyneth Paltrow revealed that she contracted COVID-19 “early on” in the pandemic.
“A little background: I had COVID-19 early on, and it left me with some long-tail fatigue and brain fog,” Paltrow shared in a post on her Goop website.
Then in January of 2021, the 48-year-old underwent tests that “showed really high levels of inflammation in my body.”
Since then the health nut has amped up her strict eating with a “keto and plant-based” diet that doesn’t include any sugar or alcohol. She also fasts until 11 a.m. every day.
“So I’ve been cooking a lot, and some of it is really delicious: I made scallops with crispy capers and sage the other day, asparagus with bacon vinaigrette, and some little artichokes with stuffed herbs and garlic,” she wrote, noting she’s “been using lots of coconut aminos in my recipes.”
Paltrow added how she’s also taking supplements, “most of them in service of a healthier gut.”
“Everything I’m doing feels good, like a gift to my body. I have energy, I’m working out in the mornings, and I’m doing an infrared sauna as often as I can, all in service of healing,” Paltrow continued.
Paltrow, who has been married to husband Brad Falchuk since 2018, has been spending time working from home with her kids — daughter Apple, 16, and son Moses, 14 — with ex-husband Chris Martin.
