Actress and former model Cameron Diaz (star of the hit movies: There’s Something About Mary, The Mask, The Charlie’s Angels series, and the Shrek series) has written her first book “The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body” where Diaz shares her formula for becoming happier, healthier, and stronger in this positive guide that is grounded in science and inspired by personal experience.
The Body Book does not set goals to reach in seven days or thirty days or a year. It offers a holistic, long-term approach to making consistent choices and reaching the ultimate goal: a long, strong, happy, healthy life.
Beginning with nutrition, Diaz explains why instead of fearing hunger, women should embrace their body’s instinct for fuel and satisfy it with whole and natural nutrient-dense foods.
Diaz 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. The book offers tips for choosing the right exercise program and shares her own workout strategies for looking and feeling your best.
Throughout her career, Cameron Diaz has been a role model for women, although by her own candid admission, this fit, glamorous, but down-to-earth star was not always health-conscious. Learning about the inseparable link between nutrition and the body was just one of the life-changing lessons that has fed Diaz’s hunger to educate herself about the best ways to feed, move, and care for her body. In The Body Book, she shares what she has learned and continues to discover about nutrition, exercise, and the mind/body connection.
“The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body” is published by Harper Collins.
