Malin Akerman Talks Gluten-Free Diet and How to Indulge in Comfort Food

May 17, 2012

Two years ago, Malin Akerman discovered that her body cannot process gluten properly due to an autoimmune condition, and in a recent interview with Shape magazine, she discussed her favorite things to eat.

"If I have any bread or pasta, it's going to be gluten-free," she said. "I believe in eating as nutritiously as I can all the time. My mother raised me on fresh rather than processed foods, and that's how I eat on a regular basis. I can't live without chocolate. I also love a thick steak and French fries."

How does Akerman indulge in these foods without sacrificing her killer figure? "I try not to eat them more than once a week, but if they somehow landed on the table in front of me, I won't hold back," she admitted. "You've got to allow yourself the things you enjoy or you'll just be miserable."

What do you think about Malin Akerman's moderation tips?
