Angelina Jolie on ancient grain diet

Angelina Jolie has a diet which is comprised of "ancient grains".

'The Tourist' star claims eating the archaic foodstuffs - which include millet, chia seeds, spelt, buckwheat and quinoa - have great benefits for her body and wellbeing, and she can't stop eating them.

A source told National Enquirer magazine: "Angie's always been a fan of healthy seeds and grains, but lately she's taken it to a whole new level. She's into eating products made from 'ancient grains' and raves about their health benefits. She claims they provide her with nutrients she can't find anywhere else, plus shinier skin."

Angelina's slender frame has been subject to much speculation about her health and it has previously been claimed in 2011 the actress - who raises six children with partner Brad Pitt - was surviving on as little as 600 calories a day.

A source said at the time: "Angelina has been known to start her day with little more than a spoonful of coconut oil and a handful of cereal.

"The worrying thing is that she is so busy, she often forgets to eat.

Sometimes she'll skip lunch altogether or will just grab a few almonds and some gummy bears while she's on the go, or will have a protein-based shake rather than anything more substantial.

"Then dinner could be something like a lean steak and a glass of red wine."
