Elisabeth Hasselbeck Stands Up for Gwyneth Paltrow, Hates on Gluten

by at .

Elisabeth Hasselbeck is standing up for Gwyneth Paltrow.

By coming down hard on gluten.

The View co-hosts got into a debate this morning over Paltrow's upcoming book, "It's All Good," in which the actress offers up a slew of carb-free and gluten-free recipes.

"I do believe that there is a growing number of people with gluten intolerance, not just celiac disease, like myself," said Hasslebeck. "I do think it causes inflammation in the body, whether you are celiac or gluten intolerant or not."

The former Survivor contestant herself, in fact, has penned a pair of gluten-free cook books.

Hasselbeck - who is NOT leaving The View - added that she noticed a significant improvement in her overall health since she cut this item out of her diet.

"I've been on the diet for 10 years," she said. "I've never felt better."

But even more than any disdain for gluten, Hasselbeck wanted to make a clear point regarding Paltrow and her beliefs:

"She could do whatever the heck she wants. She's a mom, those are her kids, do what you want."

Elisabeth Hasselbeck Quotes

Right now, with two kids, one 3 and one 5 months, a little walk for ice cream with the kids is perfectly romantic. When they are falling asleep in the stroller and [we can] just take in the city together.

Body image has nothing to do with scale numbers, it's how you feel inside. This is the first time I've felt free from that, because I am working out in a way where I feel so strong that there's no room for those doubts.
