Low Carb For Kids? A Dietitian’s Response to Gwyneth Paltrow

Posted on March 21, 2013


I’ve heard and read so much back and forth about Gwyneth Paltrow and her unreleased cookbook, It’s All Good. The debate surrounds one quote: “Sometimes when my family is not eating pasta, bread or processed grains like white rice, we’re left with that specific hunger that comes with avoiding carbs.”

In this video I discuss my thoughts on low carb diets for kids; are Gwyneth’s kids too skinny; and do we even need carbs anyway?

Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel for new videos every Wednesday. Also, I’m getting really excited about my new project, #thejuicylife! I’ll talk more about it in next week’s post.

See you then!
