Gwyneth Paltrow’s Killer Body Will Silence All the Haters (PHOTO)

Inspiring 72

gwyneth paltrow harpers bazaarGwyneth Paltrow's Harper's Bazaar cover is simply amazing. The 39-year-old mother of two shows off her perfect body in a revealing black dress -- or is that a wrap? -- and leaves little to the imagination. As well it shouldn't. Gwen's worked hard for that body, very hard, and if I were her, I'd pose in as little as possible, too.

Ms. Paltrow gets a lot of flack for her over-the-top healthy ways. Let's be honest, some of her Goop newsletters are pretty ridiculous. Recommending we get hyrdo-therapy to treat a hangover? Come on.

But I have to say, Gwen's certainly put her money where her mouth is. Maybe if we all followed her "crazy" tips, we'd look that crazy good, too.

The woman is a health machine. From training four hours a day to Pilates to cleanses to more cleanses to what cleanses to do while on a cleanse, Gwen treats her body like it's a temple, and I'll be damned if it doesn't show.

I'd venture to say that not many of us have the resources nor the time to devote to health like Gwyneth does, but I have a feeling if we followed her diet and exercise program to the T, we couldn't help but get absolutely killer bodies, as well. I appreciate that she's shared how hard she works and how healthy she eats and how focused she is on being in optimum shape because it goes to show you that bodies like hers aren't born, they're made.

Well, sometimes they're born -- there are certainly people out there who are more genetically blessed than others. But those lucky few are an anomaly. Most everyone has to work for it, and Gwen's the perfect example of how self-control, will-power, and a strong work(out) ethic will get you into flawless shape.

So the next time I read about her saying something like "eating mini pumpkins at midnight on the first night of a full moon while doing Pilates wearing a dress made out of hemp" is one of the ways she stays in shape, I won't scoff. Because whatever she's doing? It's working.

What do you think about Gwyneth's body and how she treats it?

Yeah, but she has some saggy small tits. Ah, that made me feel better. :)

Anyone who thinks there is zero photoshopping done here is insane. There is no photo in print in these magazines that isn't touched up like crazy.

Well, if I believed that this wasn't a totally Photoshopped cover, I'd be impressed.  Do I believe that?  No way.

So you don't count Gwen as someone who is "more genetically blessed than others" Seriously? So she is not naturally thin? Or model tall, or small framed? Ummm Yeah, I wouldn't count her as the "perfect example" of how being super healthy makes you have a great body, because she already has one, always did. If she had always been a little "fluffy" or lacking in tone, and became a health nut who ends up looking like this picture (which I'm going to say has some photoshop, how much?? but it has some) THEN I wuold say she is a "Perfect Example". But really, you can't take someone who was BORN with a model's body and point to her and say "She is a health nut, if you could follow all her rules you would have a rockin bod like her too" it just doesn't make sense to me (not that I'm knocing Gwen, she does have a rockin bod.)

Goodness, sounds like a bunch of jealous women in here. Of course she looks amazing! She takes care of herself. I wish I had her ambition. I don't know why everyone is always hating on her. If your unhappy with your body, do something about it and stop bashing those who work hard for theirs.

Quote:"I don't know why everyone is always hating on her. If your unhappy with your body, do something about it and stop bashing those who work hard for theirs" Be careful with the "everyone" I'm not hating on Gewn, as I SAID I think she has a rockin bod, I just don't see how she can be held up as a "Perfect Example" of what the average woman could accomplish just by doing whatever Gwen does, because she has always had a specific body type, Tall and Thin are part of it. For the record I am very happy with my body, just less hieght and more booty, but in a good way :-) (5' 100 lbs. I'd say I'm pretty rockin myself LOL)

Sorry Justme, my comment wasn't directed toward you, I did see that you said she had a rockin bod. Alot of people are always bashing on her, and I just don't get it. I mean she didn't get that way by sitting on her ass. How can you dis someone who works their tail off to look like that?!

Killer bod? Really? She's flat chested and has a flat ass, trust me, that's nothing to hate on her for, she looks undernourished, i want her to eat something!
