Cameron Diaz recognizes that body image and weight concerns have become an ongoing struggle for many girls and women. For that reason, she's authored a book providing fitness, nutrition and positive body image details. And although it hasn't been published yet, Cameron is now disclosing details, reported UPI on Dec. 23.
At 41, Cameron has battled her own body image and weight concerns. She's studied what works, what doesn't and what it really means to have positive body image and poured it into her new book: "The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body" (click for details).
Cameron's new preview of her book shows her interviewing women and taking photos of them.
"It's not a plan, it's just information for you to have," she explains in the clip.
She recently used her Instagram account to express her pride in this accomplishment.
"One of my proudest moments! Receiving the first bound copy of The Body Book!! @thebodybook LADIES!! I wrote this book for YOU and YOUR BODY.. And I'm so excited to share it with you!!" she posted.
Cameron wrote the book to help others become "happier, healthier, and stronger," reported the Huffington Post. She emphasizes that it's intended for women of all ages and sizes.
Although the book is designed to focus on health, Cameron explained that it's not designed as a weight loss guide. Instead, she wants to take the spotlight off achieving a size zero and encourage girls and women to emphasize health.
"She wants to stop their fixation on being thin, and for teenage girls to understand that being healthy is more important," a publishing source explained.
Cameron sees herself as a role model and wants to use that power to make a difference.
"She wants to use her celebrity to make a difference. She knows she is a role model to girls and she really wants to use that position to do good. This book is not about weight, it's about making the right choices," added the source.
Included in the book are tips for using nutrient-dense, whole unprocessed foods to satisfy hunger. In addition, Cameron explores the role that exercise plays in a healthy lifestyle and the mind-body connection.
