Malin Akerman - Malin Akerman Has To Watch What She Eats Due To Autoimmune Condition

Actress Malin Akerman has to be careful what she eats after learning she suffers from an autoimmune condition that makes it impossible for her body to digest gluten properly.
The health-conscious actress reveals the problem was diagnosed two years ago after she fell ill and now she has to be extra careful when dining out on bread and pasta in particular.
She says, "About two years ago I learned I had an autoimmune condition that doesn't allow me to eat gluten, so if I have any bread or pasta, it's going to be gluten-free."
But she's still a sucker for fries - and likes to splurge on a good steak once a week.
The actress, who bared all in Watchmen, has one of the best bodies in Hollywood and admits that, although she likes to eat healthy, nutritional snacks, she can't resist a blow-out meal.
She tells fitness magazine Shape, "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.
"(But) I can't live without chocolate... I also love a thick steak and French fries. 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 adds, "You've got to allow yourself the things you enjoy or you'll just be miserable."
