British actress Kate Winslet says she never follows crash dieting and would rather encourage young girls to have a healthy body image.

'I am not a twig - and refuse to be a twig. I would like young girls who are screwed up about their bodies to think that it's possible to have a healthy shape,' Winslet said.

'I don't do crash diets or eat fish rather than meat and salads until they come out of my ears,' contactmusic.com quoted the 36-year-old as saying.
