Book Description

2 Jan 2014

Cameron Diaz shares her formula for becoming happier, healthier, and stronger in this positive, essential guide that is grounded in science and inspired by personal experience.

Cameron Diaz has been a role model for millions of women all over the world throughout her career. But, as she’d be the first to admit, she hasn’t always been as health-conscious as she is now.

As a young woman, Cameron didn’t always think about how the decisions she was making about her diet and lifestyle would impact her health for years to come. But over the past fifteen years, she has discovered that what she eats is inseparably linked to how she feels and looks. That knowledge – that nutrition impacts life – fuelled her hunger to educate herself about the best ways to feed, move, and care for her body. In The Body Book, Cameron shares what she’s learned and offers a comprehensive guide for women to look and feel their best.

Cameron doesn’t offer a one-size-fits-all program or set goals to reach in seven days or thirty days or a year; instead, The Body Book offers a long-term approach to a long, strong, healthy life. Informed by experts and grounded in science, but brought to life by Cameron’s passion and personal experiences, The Body Book is an empowering, educational, and inspiring handbook for women everywhere.

YOU Magazine

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

"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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Extremely Informative and Motivating 3 Jan 2014
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 really like the way things are explained to you in a clear and concise manner, so anyone could understand. It's not a diet book but she does recommend certain foods that we should be eating and explains why they are good for us. I found this really helpful.

I always find myself thinking of advice from this book whenever I am tempted to eat something that's not good for me and usually it helps me to make more sensible choices. I still fall off the wagon sometimes but I'm much better than I was.

I'm just starting on the exercise part of the book (It's split into 3 parts - Nutrition, Exercise and a kind of Mental & Emotional Health section) and I'm sure I'm going to feel inspired to move more :)

Really motivational book full of indepth knowledge of the working body. No trend diet or fitness information here. All useful and interesting information that will inspire you. Would be ideal for teenage girls - full of sound advice on health and wellbeing.

The positives - this is is written in a nice up beat style. There is nothing wrong with messages about eating healthy and exercising.
However it is pretty inane and "californian"
Cameron tells us at great length how much she loves eating , exercising and getting older. Everything is amazing. She used to bloat but soy decaff lattes were the answer. This example is used a lot.
The food she eats is bizarre -oatmeal zucchini egg white and ponzu sauce for breakfast is apparently "awesome " but really????
There is some o level biology in there and more chapters than you could ever need on nutrition and how the body works. Its all a bit simplistic and seems to be an unholy mix of chapters on how you need to eat healthy and exercise - no revealing insights or hints on how to achieve this.
