"I am not on a detox. I am not on a diet. I know, New Year's cleansing and all that. Not this year. Can't do it. Maybe later in the year. Maybe in the spring," she writes. "So for now, I would like to continue with my pasta and cheese, but perhaps be more mindful of ingredients."

So how does Gwyn recommend cooking dishes she once stayed away from? "If you are going to eat pasta, why not serve it with a walnut pesto? You get my point. We had great fun in the GOOP test kitchen coming up with these ways to incorporate these miraculous foods into very tasty recipes."

Funny, because just last month Gwyn did an interview with Redstart magazine and revealed that she cuts everything out of her diet during a three-week-long cleanse called the Clean programme which bans dairy, gluten, refined sugar, processed foods, alcohol and caffeine. Gwyn added that the cleanse is "my favourite thing ... It did such wonders for my life, my confidence, my sex life, everything."

Wait, so which is it ... carbs or a crazy detox diet?
