'The Body Book'; Cameron Diaz shares how to become happy, healthy and strong

Cameron Diaz is one hot chick! But even she admits to overindulging during the holidays this year. “I ate everything and was not exercising as much to offset my food intake. I was not managing myself. My body looks different now than it did two weeks ago. I am not going to beat myself up about that,” says Diaz, the author of ‘The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body’.

What is food? What does it do? How does it affect our bodies? These are just some of the questions that are answered in The Body Book. Contradictory to what you might think, this book is not just about Diaz herself, it’s about women and their bodies. Diaz told Good Morning America, “I wanted this book to represent them. It’s full of pictures of all different types of women.”

Diaz brings the truth to the surface to help women make better choices with food so that they can age gracefully, live a long life and feel their best. She is aware that not everyone has her “blessed gene pool,” but with the powerful knowledge shared in ‘The Body Book’, you can “love your own amazing body. Know that body. The only way you can know that body is by taking care of it properly.”

“If you are eating processed foods, and you’re not getting all your nutrients, not exercising properly, then you are not living in the body that you were meant to live in,” says Diaz after having her own personal transformation. She grew up a fast-food junkie, eating everything from bean burritos, burgers, French fries, onion rings and drinking Coke.

Since so many, especially this time of year, need to make many adjustments with what they eat, Diaz recommends making gradual, consistent changes. “If you drink five sodas a day, just drink two and see the difference. Cut them out completely, and you’ll see a difference. Replace them with water, and you’ll really see a difference.”
