Product Description

Review

‘A radically different celebrity lifestyle guide […] More of a body bible than the usual A-lister’s diet-cum-exercise-cum-cookery tome, Cameron’s book is a comprehensive, scientifically sound guide to understanding, strengthening and – most importantly – learning ‘to love’ our bodies […] Very wise and extremely brave.’
YOU Magazine

‘If there’s any book you buy at any time soon, it should be [Cameron’s] book.’
Drew Barrymore

‘Diaz comes off in her book in the way you’d think she’d act in real life: bubbly and friendly. As a bonus: she’s actually done her research and is knowledgeable and fair.’
Jezebel.com

‘[THE BODY BOOK] is brimming with advice, tips and tricks and useful science that [Cameron’s] learned along her wellness journey.’
Self Magazine

‘…Diaz’s message is smart: your body is the best instrument you’ll ever own.’
The Daily Beast

‘Cam is like your personal life guru, telling you that YOU CAN DO IT in all caps’
New York Magazine

‘There’s definitely something about Cameron Diaz.’
Hello Magazine

Good book to keep for reference. Enjoyable and easy to read. Learned a few things I didn't know about nutrition and exercise. Would recommend to anyone wishing to make a lifestyle change.

Format: Hardcover
"The Body Book" written by famous actress Cameron Diaz is one of the many books on various diets that were published at the end of previous year, when all of us are counting many calories we have put into our body past holiday days and bring New Year's resolutions that precisely this year we'll finally solve the problem of overweight.

Of several books on the subject read I already wrote reviews, and to this one I was mostly attracted due to its author, curious what about this subject has to say an actress whose body for many years manages to resist aging, while she still maintains a youthful appearance.
I'll be honest I was expecting a classic "picture book" kind of book such are typically released by well-known actors or singers, but to my surprise there are very small number of photos inside, and instead the author and her team offered a range of useful information on its three hundred pages.

Cameron intended her book solely for women, that is evident from the start when with a large font she addresses to women while explaining the reasons why she wrote her book - wanting to share with readers exciting experiences that brought great joy and fulfillment, like when you eat something delicious you turn to the person next to you and give a bite to try.
That is the way author feels about her book, being able to provide information about our bodies and nutrition that she used in her everyday living, the things that make her feel excited and joyous due to the ability to teach readers how to feed yourself both nutritiously and deliciously.

I definitely learned a lot from this book and would recommend it to anyone who, like me, would like to be healthier but doesn't know where to begin sifting through all the fad diets and conflicting nutritional advice that's out there. This book breaks it down so it's nice and easy. The only reason I didn't give it a five is that her examples of how she stays healthy were so smug and not always realistic for others to be able to follow by example.

Loved this book, which I preordered to motivate me in the New Year. You can tell Cameron is enthusiastic about what she's writing and she makes me want to make healthier choices. There are no plans or prescriptions - just backed-up advice. Really like this book and would highly recommend.

I love this book. Not only did it make me like Cameron Diaz more, but I learned so much!! I sincerely wish I had this in my twenties, but I have to start somewhere. For me it is my inspiration and motivation to be more healthy and active. I like how she goes into the details of why and how we use our bodies and how our diet and movement effect it or not as the case may be. Easy to read with diagrams and pictures for ease of reference. She includes personal experiences and references too.

Cameron Diaz fills this book with the enthusiasm you see her deliver on-screen. You can tell this is something she is very passionate about and she has done a lot of research. I'm a fitness addict so knew a lot of this information before but I've lent the book to many of my friends to reinforce the messages I have been giving them verbally. They love the book and have made many healthy changes off the back of it. Can't recommend this book enough.
