"One of my proudest moments! Receiving the first bound copy of The Body Book!!" Cameron gushed on Instagram. "I wrote this book for you and your body. And I'm so excited to share it with you!"

In The Body Book, Diaz discusses the importance of regular exercise for both physical and emotional health, and details how her poor eating habits once wreaked havoc on her skin and body.

"If you are what you eat, I was a bean burrito with extra cheese and extra sauce, no onions," she wrote.

Cameron said embracing a healthy diet and working out regularly helped her look and feel her best, and said it can do the same for anyone.

'My Body Is Better At 41 Than At 21'

Diaz, 41, maintains her hot bikini body by running, strength-training, and doing Pilates. While most people dread getting older, the former model embraces the aging process, insisting she's only getting better with age.

“My ass is definitely higher than it was when I was 20,” she said. “This is the thing that people don’t understand: Take care of your body [and it will] get better! It gets better as I get older.”

Surprisingly, Cameron was addicted to fried foods during her twenties before overhauling her diet in her early thirties.

I used to eat fried food from morning to night when I was in my 20s. But I have really had to make some changes. I love fried chicken and french fries but I can’t do that anymore.

As I get older, I realized I was working a little bit harder at digesting what I was eating, and I thought it is not fair to my body to keep doing this. If you are giving it a bunch of crap all the time, it will break down quicker and deteriorate quicker, so I stopped.”

These days, Diaz's low-carb diet consists mostly of lean protein such as chicken, fish, steak and shrimp, and grilled vegetables. Cameron also eats sprouts and seeds and avoids white foods such as white bread and pasta. Her preferred breakfast is egg whites, sautéed tomatoes, and steel-cut oatmeal.

"Life gets better as you get older," she said. "I don’t want to be 20. I feel better than ever: stronger, more capable and clearer." Diaz shares her weight-loss, diet, workout and happiness secrets in The Body Book.
