In an age where grain-free diets have become glorified, Angelina Jolie is taking a different path. Her diet is overflowing with the glory of grains such as quinoa as well as coconut oil and seeds such as chia, according to Marie Claire magazine. And if you're trying to lose weight, incorporating those foods into your own diet can help you achieve your slim-down goals.

Angelina maintains her sleek physique by carefully following her strict diet. It emphasizes portion-controlled servings of nuts and seeds. The mixture includes quinoa, millet, chia seeds, spelt and buckwheat, which Angelina feels helps with her weight and well-being. "Angelina has been known to start her day with little more than a spoonful of coconut oil and a handful of cereal," said a source.

Her food plan does offer benefits:

  • Quinoa contains antioxidant phytonutrients that result in a reduced risk of conditions that include obesity. How to use: Look for an organic brand and cook it up for breakfast or as a side dish for dinner. We like Bob's Red Mill Grain Quinoa Organic.
  • Coconut oil "can boost thyroid function helping to increase metabolism, energy and endurance,"says Dr. Oz. How to use: Try in baked goods or mix into oatmeal for a creamy touch. We like Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil.
  • Chia seeds provide you with protein and fiber. Soak in almond milk and add to smoothies to fill up. We like Navitas Naturals Organic Raw Chia Seeds.
