Top Customer Reviews
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.Read more ›
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.
