Editorial Reviews

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 --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From the Back Cover

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.

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.

Format: Kindle Edition
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 saw her on a talk show and downloaded the book immediately and I'm not disappointed. She writes like she talks. I love her humor and making food so understandble.

"Just because you can put something in your mouth, chew it, swallow it, and then poop it out does not mean it is food. It just means you can chew it, swallow it, and poop it out!" Love this statement and seriously on point! As a physician specializing in optimizing individual health, hormones, and fitness having an awareness of what we choose to call food is critical to our overall well-being, health, longevity, and hormones. Cameron Diaz and Sandra Bark do a spectacular job at sharpening your "awareness" of what happens inside your body after you eat particular foods, especially processed sugar! Which we all must regard as a seductive, poisonous, temptress and not a nutrient if we desire to live a long life full of strength and vitality. Cameron and Sandra provide medically sound and vital information in an easy to read and comprehensive format. Taking the time to educate yourself about your body is critically important as your fitness, nutrition, and health are yours alone and Cameron uses her own amazing passion for her personal health and fitness to inspire you to achieve your healthful best. Cameron walks the walk and The Body Book receives my highest recommendation as a must read for all those serious about the pursuit of health, nutrition, and fitness.
