Gwyneth Paltrow has claimed that Detox is a great way to lose weight.

Paltrow said that a detox is a great place to start before a diet, asserting that her doctor, Alejandro Junger, recommends it once a year to rid organs of processed food and environmental toxins, reported.

The 40-year-old actress, known for her lean look, said that Junger’s theorizes that the gut is the root of good health. She said that he believes that gut contains about 80 percent of body’s serotonin - which regulates appetite - so people are more likely to lose weight when the gut is working properly.
