Looks like it takes a bit of work to earn the title of World's Most Beautiful woman!

In the debut issue of Beach magazine, spearheaded by editor-in-chief Cristina Cuomo, Gwyneth Paltrow reveals a few of the lifestyle tips that helped her earn the enviable title.

And while any good Goop fan knows that the Iron Man 3 star maintains a pretty healthy diet, it might surprise some to learn that her passion for good-for-you eating started with her late father, Bruce Paltrow's, cancer diagnosis.

"I began to consider the effects of food when my father was diagnosed with throat cancer in 1998," she explained. "I started to research anti-cancer diets in hopes that he would try to hit it from all angles."

"It's about being mindful about what you are putting in," Gwyneth continued. "Good whole foods are the way we have eaten for generations. It's amazing how good you feel when you just cut out the processed stuff."

And she doesn't look too bad, either!
