Cameron Diaz shares her formula for becoming happier, healthier, and stronger in this positive, essential guide that is grounded in science and inspired by personal experience.
Cameron Diaz has been a role model for millions of women all over the world throughout her career. But, as she'd be the first to admit, she hasn't always been as health-conscious as she is now. As a young woman, Cameron didn't always think about how the decisions she was making about her diet and lifestyle would impact her health for years to come. But over the past 15 years, she has discovered that what she eats is inseparably linked to how she feels and looks. That knowledge - that nutrition impacts life - fuelled her hunger to educate herself about the best ways to feed, move, and care for her body.
In The Body Book, Cameron shares what she's learned and offers a comprehensive guide for women to look and feel their best. Cameron doesn't offer a one-size-fits-all program or set goals to reach in seven days or 30 days or a year; instead, The Body Book offers a long-term approach to a long, strong, healthy life.
Informed by experts and grounded in science, but brought to life by Cameron's passion and personal experiences, The Body Book is an empowering, educational, and inspiring handbook for women everywhere.

I've never read the book and I didn't know what to expect. Cameron Diaz has always struck me as a fun loving woman, one who's comfortable in her skin and loves it and it reflects in this book! Even better she has me learning things about my body that I didn't even know about.
Like she said, this is not a diet book or a book on exercise. This is a book about nutrition, about embracing hunger and giving our bodies the wholesome foods it needs. This is about moving our bodies, not to fit better in jeans (although that's a benefit) but to help our bones, our muscles, our heart, our brains and to increase our life's span. This is about the discipline of consistently taking care of our health for the rest of our lives.
This is about our bodies and how amazing, strong, powerful and unique they each are and it is a masterpiece (referring to our bodies and the book :) )
If I could of yes
Thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book, found it very informative and it has helped me make some small but significant changes to my diet and exercise routine
A nice little motivational book. Well read & informative. Personally found the reading out of the sub-headings annoying as there are quite a lot but worth a listen to nonetheless.
From all of the extracts in the media I thought this would be self indulgent rubbish... How wrong! So glad I took a chance on this. A great attitude, simple science (a lot of which was new to me) and packed with kind ways to love your body and feel great every day. I'll be relistening soon.
"excellent informative book!"
everyone should listen to/read this
thank you Cameron Diaz! :-) I've recommended my mum listen to this and my husband to read it.
"Good for basic knowledge and motivation."
Good for basic knowledge and motivation. If you are procrastinating your health and fitness activities then this will book will give you a kick. if you are already a health enthusiast you would probably already have most of the knowledge and be following most of the motivation tips offered by this book.
This book is the best personal development book that I've read so far. The way the book is written and narrated was way beyond my expectations. It is like a conversation with one of your best friends. So many personal and practical tips, so inspiring and so worth listening again.... Can't recommend it highly enough!
"best health book"
very engaging and inspiring. will listen to it again and again. no jargon jibberish. totally motivating
"Enthusiastic and informative"
enjoyed the easy style in which it was written even though it contained lots of info on health and change.
""Nutrition & fitness & awareness & discipline...""
This is one of my top audiobooks, she is probably one of the best role models out there for such a book because of her infectious and fun personailty, her personal success, and down to earth practical approach to health & self-care, this seems to be an inspiring and effective combination to put forward her health philosophy, focussing on "Nutrition & fitness & awareness & discipline... These are your tools... ". She has chosen a narrator who sounds just like her which seems to work, and I think the book focuses mainly on these four "tools". I'm not one for self-discipline, but this has helped me see the advantages and long-term benefits for my health and well-being. I listen a little bit at a time usually when I'm in bed at night, when I'm relaxing and can take it in, as it's full of useful encouraging tips which are meant to last, so I find myself re-organising my habits and routines accordingly in my head. She is very into forming new "habits" to replace bad ones with personal examples. One thing I'd like her to have tackled is: how to deal with social & family pressure to do the contrary & sabotage your efforts?
Cameron Diaz' happy energy and strength shone threw in both their narrations. Cameron Diaz was a little better than Sandy Rustin, and made less mouth noises. I don't understand why she didn't read the entire book. That would have made the experience better I think.
I went into this book whith no expectations. I tend to read celebrity memoirs when I'm looking for a book to enjoy that I don't care about much, so I can read it when I'm tired or in a fowl mood, and it'll help me relax. This isn't a memoir obivously, but I figured it might have the same effect.
I was surprised by how much I learned and how well researched this book was! I have some knowledge in the areas of nutrition and physiology, so if there is one thing I can tell you is that even doctors get these things wrong all the time. There are so many new studies, so many things that are suddenly proven wrong, or information that is updated. But this book got it right (although some things were simplified), and it was quite entertaining! Loved that she put in little anecdotes from her own life too.
Also, I had no intention of changing my diet going in, it was just something to listen to. But I was immediately inspired by the book. When I finished it, I discovered I had lost 5 pounds, without eating less or working out! Guess that processed food really is messing with our system.
