King hires nutritionist after years of eating like a toddler

Actress Jaime King has hired a top nutritionist to help her on the road to good health after years spent eating "like a toddler" to maintain the body of "a 14-year-old-girl".

The 32-year-old Sin City star doesn't want to become an actress who sets a bad example for the next generation of young stars - and so she has stopped being so obsessed with her weight, and she has called on food doctor David Allen to help her make better choices about what she eats.

She tells Life & Style magazine, "I grew up in Hollywood, and my whole life I've believed that I have to look like a 14-year-old.

"I've had this weird expectation that I should weigh 118 pounds, even though I'm five-feet-eight. I don't want to put that image out to young women, that they have to look like a prepubescent girl."

King reveals she has been eating "like a toddler" for years, explaining, "I'd eat little bites of a lot of different things, like peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches, turkey bacon, oatmeal and chocolate-covered pretzels."

But she has started to get serious about what she puts in her body and has called on nutritionist Allen to help her stay healthy.
