Throughout her career, Cameron Diaz has been a role model for
millions of women. By her own admission, though, this fit, athletic
star wasn''t always as health-conscious as she is today. Her
consumption of bad foods had an effect on her skin and her body.
"If you are what you eat," she says, "I was a bean burrito with
extra cheese and extra sauce, no onions." Learning about the
inseparable link between nutrition and health was just one of the
life-changing lessons that sparked Cameron''s passion to explore
the best ways to care for her body. In The Body Book, she
shares the knowledge she''s gained both from personal experience
and from consulting with health experts.
Beginning with nutrition, Cameron explains why instead of
fearing hunger, women should embrace their body''s instinct for
fuel and satisfy it with whole, nutrient-dense foods.
Cameron 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. Cameron offers tips for choosing the right
exercise program and shares her own workout strategies for looking
and feeling your best.
Creating a healthy, beautiful body begins with learning the
facts and turning knowledge into action. In The Body Book,
women will find the tools they need to build a healthier body
now-so they can live joyfully in it for years to come.
