Taking time away from her hit Showtime series "Shameless," Emmy Rossum graced the cover of Natural Health magazine's March/April 2014 issue.

The 27-year-old actress looked picture perfect in a light blue spring dress for the Jeff Lipsky-shot spread while opening up about everything from her diet to offering advice about staying healthy.

On her gluten-free diet:
"I will be for life. I’ve always had an allergy to gluten. When I was a baby I wouldn’t eat, and my mom opened my mouth and I had all these canker sores. Nobody could figure out what it was until I was, like, 12 or 13. I cut out gluten at that point and have hardly had any canker sores since. I also have less bloating and fatigue."

On her tips to gluten-free newbies:
"Take all of the gluten out of your house so you’re not tempted, and encourage everyone living there to go gluten-free too. A website called tasteguru.com will send a sampling of g-free stuff you can try."

On her diet cheating days:
"Today, I ate French fries! I try not to deprive myself, because when I do I’ll eat a bunch of food really quickly in the corner of the kitchen and hope nobody notices. Because that means it doesn’t count, right? [Laughs] Once I was at a photo shoot and the photographer was like, 'Are you gonna eat that piece of cake?' I said, 'Watch me.' I don’t deal well with people who put restrictions on me. I get very rebellious. I’m from New York City. Don’t tell me what I can and can’t do!"
