Print
Throughout her career, Cameron Diaz has been a role model for millions of women. By her own admission, though, this fit, athletic star wasn't always as health-conscious as she is today. Her consumption of bad foods had an effect on her skin and her body. "If you are what you eat," she says, "I was a bean burrito with extra cheese and extra sauce, no onions." Learning about the inseparable link between nutrition and health was just one of the life-changing lessons that sparked Cameron's passion to explore the best ways to care for her body. In The Body Book, she shares the knowledge she's gained both from personal experience and from consulting with health experts. Beginning with nutrition, Cameron explains why instead of fearing hunger, women should embrace their body's instinct for fuel and satisfy it with whole, nutrient-dense foods. Cameron also explains the essential role of consistent physical activity. Many women think about exercise in terms of pounds lost or muscle tone gained, but don't realize that working up a sweat is also essential for improving mood, boosting energy levels, and preventing disease. Cameron offers tips for choosing the right exercise program and shares her own workout strategies for looking and feeling your best. Creating a healthy, beautiful body begins with learning the facts and turning knowledge into action. In The Body Book, women will find the tools they need to build a healthier body now--so they can live joyfully in it for years to come.

I very much enjoyed this book. As women, we are very harsh and have bad perceptions of out body and how it should be percrived. The female body is an amazing thing. The body book shows you the wonders and made me appreciate my body more. Plus, I heard Cameron's voice in my head while I read. Very entertaining. :)

A patron review from the Adult Summer Game: "Presents basic information about health, nutrition, how the body works, etc. It is easy-to-follow and informative and more like a text book, but there was enough of Diaz in it to keep it from being boring (and thankfully not too much to have one roll their eyes at her celebrity). A good book for science-minded women."
