GWYNETH PALTROW thought she was having a stroke recently when she fainted during a dinner party at her house.
In her new cook book, she writes, "One sunny afternoon in London, in the spring of 2011, I thought - without sounding overly dramatic - that I was going to die. I had just served lunch in the garden at home... I had a vague feeling that I was going to faint, and I wasn't forming thoughts correctly... I got a searing pain in my head, I couldn't speak, and I felt as if I couldn't breathe. I thought I was having a stroke."
Doctors say she suffered a migraine and a panic attack, and she was "severely anaemic" and "vitamin D deficient" - so she was ordered to change her diet, cutting out coffee, eggs, sugar, shellfish, potatoes, wheat and meat.
