Editorial Reviews

Review

“The book is fabulous. It’s really spectacular” (Dr. Oz)

“Knowledge is power, and that’s what this book is about.” (Robin Roberts, Good Morning America)

“This book road-mapped for me why I feel better today than I did when I was 20. And it explains to me the importance of strength inside and out.” (Rachael Ray)

“[THE BODY BOOK] is brimming with advice, tips and tricks and useful science that she’s learned along her wellness journey.” (SELF Magazine)

“…Diaz’s message is smart: Your body is the best instrument you’ll ever own.” (Daily Beast)

“Her manual reads a bit like a cross between a science textbook and articles from the Well section of the New York Times your mother sends you, with a dash of a best friend that likes to overshare.” (Jezebel)

“Unlike other celebrities who are out there promoting juicing, fitness or slapping their names on wellness books they didn’t write or could care less about - Cameron is the real deal.” (Access Hollywood)

“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.

The Body Book is not your typical celebrity vanity project, which is both its strength and its weakness. Cameron Diaz deserves a lot of credit for truly exploring the science behind food, hunger and mental well-being. She breaks down medical jargon into clear, common terms and speaks to readers as though we're her old friends (get ready for HEAPS of caps). So why only three stars?

As she says in her introduction, "It is not a diet book. It is not a workout regimen. It is not a manual to becoming a different person." There are few examples of how she applies the knowledge to her own life and no favorite fitness tips or delicious and nutritious recipes. This book is all about the science of the body and Diaz truly does "go there." She discusses the female form in detail, defines portions of the anatomy and also has diagrams that help illustrate her points.

But that leads to another problem... this book isn't Kindle friendly. The charts and diagrams cannot be zoomed in on - at least on the Kindle Paperwhite - which often renders them completely useless because the text appears as teeny, tiny, completely illegible print.

If you're an adult female who is even moderately healthy, gets some exercise, and knows that processed food is bad, I'd suggest avoiding this book. If you're trying to help a teen create or reinforce good habits, then it might be worthwhile. Diaz offers some decent, general, science-based advice and it could also be a good resource for girls who have questions about their bodies that they're too embarrassed to ask.

Bottom line: not a bad book, but get the hard copy and give it to a teenager.

I enjoyed this book. I was pleasantly surprised by the wealth of information here. Helped me change my views on some old habits and gave a good kick in the pants to get moving. I would recommend.

You might be thinking, why would I want to read a book by Cameron Diaz? She’s naturally skinny, she’s tall with a beautiful smile and she’s RICH! What do I have in common with a woman like that? The answer is EVERYTHING.

Fitness and nutrition are not always about losing weight or guaranteeing that life will be longer. You have no idea when you’re going to die. The choice between a donut or an apple could be the least of your concerns when it comes to what is put down on that death certificate. It is more about living life to it's full capacity, accepting yourself and feeling AMAZING. CD welcomes us to the reason behind her big beautiful smile, a smile we could all own if we just changed.

Depending on your lifestyle you may already be perfect and not need a damn thing from CD, but if you're like most Americans, you're not. You might be one of the handful that are slowly turning to fast food as your unrecognized cause of obesity, depression, anger and worst of all death. The body book can either serve as a good reminder of who you are inside or create a completely new understanding of who you can be.

Lastly, there are very few times in life where Cameron Diaz is going to ask you to put your finger in your vagina.

I wish I could express myself better because this book is way more amazing than I can explain. I'll try anyway.

This books talks about nutrition but it is not only about nutrition. It explains how our body works, and how it uses the fuel we give it, and what we can do to give it the best fuel in the most effective way to be healthy, strong, and happy.

But that's not all. The book talks about other ways to take care of our bodies too. Exercise, sleeping habits, even our minds.

For years I have been defeating myself. I would have an idea, get excited about it, then the next day I would tell myself that I was dreaming and I could never do that so why bother. And there you have it, Cameron talks about that too!! I read that and I thought, yes that is me. And then I read some more and I thought, that WAS me, but no more!

I'm not going to go into a lot of detail about what the book talks about because you can see it in the table of contents or other reviews. But I want to say that besides all the information this book gives you (and it is so well organized too), it also motivates you and makes you believe in yourself. I don't know how it does it, but it does.

You read it and it feels like Cameron is right there telling you that you can do it, that we all can do it. And then, you believe it.

I really believe Cameron wrote this book to help us and not just to make money. It wouldn't be that good otherwise.

So THANK YOU CAMERON, you have helped me more than you can imagine! I owe you!

If you are still not sure about getting the book, trust me, you will love it. And I'm just not a super huge fan of Cameron (OK, I am now, but I wasn't before I got the book).
