Gwyneth Paltrow has often been dragged by the tabloids for various reasons. What is it this time? Let's find out.

In one of the latest episodes of The Art of Being Well, the 50-year-old actress opens up about her wellness routine, and sure enough, it drives everyone mad. Again.

Paltrow describes how she does "a nice intermittent fast," how she has breakfast that "won't spike her blood sugar," and how she prefers to eat "according to paleo" for dinner.

Gwyneth, not everything has to be a healthy meal, live a little! The actress' so-called wellness routine has earned her the Almond Mom title (yikes!).

If you are not a Gen Z-er, and you remember the days before the Internet could come up with new terms like this and you could keep up, an almond mom is a parent who has an unhealthy relationship with food and promotes the toxic diet culture to their kids.

You know, starving yourself to look thin, sugar is death, and almonds are a healthy and nutritious snack – the holy three?

TikTok users are now calling Gwyneth "the mother of all almond moms" (here is a title one probably doesn't want) and saying that she looks "hungry and pale" (well, fasting can do that to you sometimes).

With these new "out of touch" statements, people are remembering Paltrow's previous lows. Back in 2014, for example, she said that working-on-set moms struggle more than moms who have regular office jobs.

Tone-deaf might as well be Gwyneth's middle name…

Users are even more outraged by Paltrow's "detox" promotion. The actress claims that she needs her routine to detox, but we all wonder what from.

People also find it odd that Gwyneth is so devoted to organic eating habits, but at the same time seems to be OK with daily chemical IVs.

Maybe those are organic too? What Gwyneth Paltrow does with her body is, of course, her decision and hers alone.

However, people are pressed about what Goop, her wellness company, might be promoting to young people who are susceptible to ideas that the toxic diet culture feeds on.

As for us, we just hope that the actress' wellness routine at least does her more good than harm.
