Gwyneth Paltrow may have mastered living a healthy lifestyle, but even the Oscar-winning actress has taken a few "trips" along the way.

The Goop entrepreneur wrote an article for U.K.'s The Telegraph in which she outlines her fitness dos and don'ts.

"Keep up consistent exercise," Paltrow advises. "I'd also recommend concentrating on moving more — we sit for so much of the day. Choose to walk or take the stairs, or briskly climb a hill in the evenings. It creates good muscle tone and boosts your metabolism."

As for diet and cleansing tips (seriously, "juice cleanse" is a phrase you hear regularly in L.A.), the "Thanks for Sharing" actress says one cleanse she experimented with had some major side effects.

"I've done juice cleanses in the past, and in my twenties I did the Master Cleanse, which left me hallucinating after 10 days," she reveals. "Be aware: a juice detox can crash your metabolism and lead to future weight gain."

But it's not all greens and protein in Gwyneth and hubby Chris Martin's household. You can definitely find a wine cellar and a secret stash of smokes.

"Stay away from processed foods, though cutting them out completely is no fun and can ultimately lead to a binge," Paltrow says when talking about finding a balance." Allow yourself programmed treats — I often have a glass of red wine in the evening and smoke a cigarette on a Saturday. I love those moments because they are just the right amount of naughty. That balance keeps you vibrant. You have to live your life, after all."

Some of G's other tips include:

Do: Monitor your body shape with a measuring tape.

Don't: Use a scale if it messes with you psychologically.

Do: Keep your cupboards well stocked with fresh basics to stay inspired to eat healthily.

Do: Find a few beauty products to cheat with that create a more toned illusion.
