    Gwyneth Paltrow gained "a lot of weight" due to coronavirus - but she lost 11lbs after eating bone broth for a week

    The 48-year-old actress was consuming alcohol and pasta "all the time" after she was struck down with COVID-19, and she also believes the virus is partly to blame for slowing down her metabolism


    Gwyneth - who has been battling long COVID, when coronavirus symptoms last weeks or months after the infection has gone - said: "I've noticed over the past couple of years that my metabolism is slowed down.

    "I know a lot of that is perimenopause. I'm 48 years old, and I know that women tend to lose up to 30 per cent of their metabolic speed once we enter this phase of life, etc. So I know some of it is that.

    "I think maybe some of it is because I got COVID.

    "My physician in New York was saying that that was affecting a lot of his patients' metabolisms as well.

    "What I really noticed was the snap back that I used to have - you know, if I gained some weight and I wasn't happy, I could quickly eat really well for a couple of days, exercise a lot, and it would all be gone.

    "And that was not happening over the past year.

    "I gained a lot of weight over COVID.

    "COVID happened and I didn't do my eating plan. I just was like having alcohol and pasta all the time and then I sort of hit a wall."

    Despite piling on some pounds, the 'Avengers: Endgame' actress has shed 11lbs after eating bone broth for a week as part of her functional medicine practitioner Dr. Will Cole's 'Intuitive Fasting' plan.

    Speaking to Will on his podcast 'The Art of Being Well', she added: "You started me on the bone broth cleanse, which was incredible [and] hard, but that process of letting my digestive system rest and for the lining to start to heal a little bit over those first six days, I felt like I never could have found or started to listen to that intuitive voice about what I wanted to eat or not eat had I not kind of done something a bit drastic to kind of do that reset.

    "Because I think so much of coping with business and everything is food and it's mindless eating and everything.

    "And then when you're not digesting well, it's affecting all kinds of things."
