Gwyneth Paltrow - Gwyneth Paltrow's food obsession

Gwyneth Paltrow is obsessed with food.

The 40-year-old actress has produced two cookbooks and says her love of cooking and eating came from her foodie father Bruce Paltrow, who passed away in October 2002 after battling cancer.

She told the debut issue of Beach magazine: ''I have always loved food, I was raised by a foodie. I love to cook and eat. My father was obsessed with good food and he passed it on to me.''

While exercise is important to Gwyneth, so that she can maintain her enviable figure while still eating the foods she enjoys, she has found a good balance between them both.

She explained: ''Find what works for you. I think it's important to move a little everyday. If you don't have time for a full workout, do what you can - walk to work, take the stairs. Above all, don't beat yourself up. We're all trying to do so much. Ease up on yourself and do what's in front of you to the best of your ability.''

Although the 'Iron Man 3' actress is now happily married to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin - the father of her kids Apple, eight, and son Moses, seven - she admitted she used to spend a lot of time worrying about her life and wishes she could tell her younger self to relax.

She said: ''I'd tell my younger self not to worry so much; to ease up on myself; that everything happened for a reason; to embrace the obstacles...it's all part of the soul curriculum.''
