    Douglass recommends the diet and says it has helped him recover and maintain his weight after dropping over 40 pounds in his battle with throat cancer.

    The American actor, who stars in the superhero film Ant-Man, set for release this week, also spoke with Kelly about his past battles with alcohol and his marriage to Welsh actress Catherine Zeta-Jones.

    Douglass revealed that he views a gluten-free diet as a key factor in his improved health and well-being.

    The gluten-free diet has proven popular among celebrities and athletes, including Gwyneth Paltrow, 42, and this year's Wimbledon champion Novak Djokovic, 28.

    Celiac patients are not the only ones who must eat gluten free. I have Hashimoto's Autoimmune Disease and most people with Hashi's also eat gluten free. Eating gluten free is hard at first but worth the effort.

    Perhaps not in Michael's case, but in most cases, the celebrity adherence to gluten-free is just another fad they get involved in. It lends no credence to the strict regimen that celiac sufferers need to follow.

    Celiac.com 05/06/2009 - Like so many people with celiac disease, Elisabeth Hasselbeck of ABC's The View has a story to tell. Like so many people with celiac disease, that story involves a long, slow, painful journey from suffering to understanding, to self-empowerment and recovery. In between were periods of confusion, doubt, isolation and malaise. Hasselbeck describes that journey in her new book: The gluten-free Diet: A Gluten-Free Survival Guide.
    Hasselbeck's odyssey began during her sophomore year of college, when she fell ill after returning from a three-week-long trip to Belize. She was diagnosed with a severe bacterial intestinal infection which...

    Celiac.com 07/31/2010 - Chelsea Clinton is set to wed Marc Mezvinsky today in what can only be described as the most high-profile gluten-free wedding ever! Until now, all-alternative banquet menus have been rare, but with Ms. Clinton blazing the trail for others, the gluten-free trend is sure to continue.
    Many people may not realize that Chelsea Clinton has been a vegan since she was a teenager, meaning she doesn't eat meat, dairy, eggs, or any animal products. Chelsea is also said to have a gluten allergy, meaning she cannot eat wheat, rye or barley either; which is why her wedding cake will be gluten-free and vegan, along with most of the other food...

    Celiac.com 08/17/2011 - Gluten-free eating is playing a key role in the diets of major A-list celebrities. Among them, Lady Gaga, Russell Crowe, and Jennifer Esposito all have made gluten-free eating a major part of their health and diet routines.
    Russell Crowe has reportedly dropped more than 16 pounds by following a strict exercise regime and eating a diet that is largely gluten-free.
    In mid-June, Crowe, 47, launched a 105 day plan to tone up and shed weight. He has made gluten-free food a major part of that effort and seems well on his way to dropping the 41-pounds he hopes to lose.
    Crowe's Twitter page contains this update on his success...
