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.

By Denis Vukosav TOP 100 REVIEWER
"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting read 28 May 2014
By Clio
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Nothing terribly new in this book if you already have a basic understanding of Biology, but at the same time, it's nice to have it all in the one place and it's well put together. It's also a good reminder that we need to be more careful about what we put into our bodies if we want to get the best out of life. I like her candid nature in the book too.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ode to healthy living 19 Aug 2014
By Anna

I wrote a blog/review about Cameron Diaz’s Body Book as I have an absolute need to share and recommend this book to you. It’s truly inspiring. In the blog I talk a bit about my own experience with nutrition and exercise, and how I recognize much of that experience in the book.
Cameron writes with great conviction about her personal discovery of the importance of being healthy, and how much more you can get from life if you are in a body that has boundless energy and capability. I hope my blog can in turn motivate you to read her book, or at least to think about healthy living.

A really pleasant surprise! I have always liked the way Cameron Diaz has come across in interviews - no nonsense, straight talking, honest and funny - and this book is testament to those characteristics! The book and subject matter is clearly a labour of love and something that she feels passionate about - which translates into being something inspirational, even if you only take one or two things away from the book, it is worth a read.
Is it a coincidence I signed up of some sessions with a personal trainer to kick start my fitness, part way through reading this book? I think not, so thank you Ms Diaz!

A nice, easy to read, feel-good book designed for teenagers who are keen on taking care of themselves, as well as young women. To me it was a bit simple at some points, but all in all Cameron has a very good knowledge of what she is talking about, and you can tell that everything written there is genuine and from the bottom of her heart. Information is useful, but presented in a cheery manner, not being just dry facts.
I enjoyed reading it and even highlighted several bits for reference. I definitely would give this as a present to my younger friends.
