Lose A Few Pounds With Gwyneth Paltrow's $425 Cleanse And Impossible Recipes

So it shouldn't come as a surprise that the new issue features Paltrow recommending a $425, 21-day "Goop Cleanse." But just in case that isn't pretentious and out-of-touch enough for you, Paltrow also includes some cleanse-related recipes (you can't eat normal food on the Goop Cleanse, you proletarian) that require more time, money and fresh herbs than anyone but Paltrow can possibly imagine. Here are some highlights.
