Elisabeth Hasselbeck comes to Gwyneth Paltrow's defense

By Danielle Fredette,

Gwyneth Paltrow has been under fire from critics for her new cookbook It’s All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look Good and Feel Great, as well as for making her children follow in her dieting footsteps.

Patrow, 40, recently revealed that she makes her family follow her low-carb, gluten free diet, which often leaves them feeling hungry.

One particularly harsh critic wrote in the NY Post, "The book reads like the manifesto to some sort of creepy healthy-girl sorority with members who use beet juice rather than permanent marker to circle the 'problem areas' on each other’s bodies."

Now, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, who has been the subject of her own controversy surrounding whether or not she is leaving The View, recently spoke up for Paltrow on the show.

Hasselbeck defended Paltrow's gluten-free lifestyle, stating, "I do believe that there is a growing number of people with gluten intolerance, not just celiac disease, like myself. I do think it causes inflammation in the body, whether you are celiac or gluten intolerant or not," reports US Weekly.

However, Hasselbeck's point had more to do with the fact that Paltrow is entitled to do as she pleases. "She could do whatever the heck she wants," said The View co-host. "She's a mom, those are her kids, do what you want."
