A new year approaches, and with it resolutions, including the most common: losing weight. Though neither strictly focusing on weight loss nor offering a diet plan, Cameron Diaz’s self-help book can aid those who wish to fulfill that pesky resolution.
“The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body,” available to own on December 31, not only aims to inspire women to love their bodies more, but also provides nutrition and fitness tips based on Diaz’s personal experiences and health professionals with whom she consulted.
“‘The Body Book’ does not set goals to reach in seven days or thirty days or a year,” the promotional blurb on Amazon states. “It offers a holistic, long-term approach to making consistent choices and reaching the ultimate goal: a long, strong, happy, healthy life.”
Diaz, who graduated from Poly High School in Long Beach and is best known for starring in such films as “There’s Something About Mary” and “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” not only penned her first book but also snapped all of the pictures. In a YouTube video (attached to this article) posted earlier this month, the actress can be found behind her camera and interviewing women about their favorite physical features and their knowledge of nutrition and fitness.
The star also posted a photo on Instagram last week, in which her makeup free self is holding the first bound copy of “The Body Book.” The caption reads, “One of my proudest moments!...LADIES!! I wrote this book for YOU and YOUR BODY.. And I’m so excited to share it with you!!”
When Diaz revealed the book’s planning stages in an interview with InStyle last year, she expressed her desire and the necessity to teach good health to women.
Everyone needs to find a purpose, and I think mine is to help other people….I’m creating a space where I can teach healthy habits that girls can build on. I see women struggling with their bodies because they don’t know how they work on basic levels, starting with nutrition. The more I talk about this with people, the more I realize how much it’s needed. I’m really throwing all of my energy into it.
