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.
Throughout her career, Cameron Diaz has been a role model for millions of women. By her own candid admission, though, this fit, glamorous, but down-to-earth star was not always health-conscious. Learning about the inseparable link between nutrition and the body was just one of the life-changing lessons that has fed Cameron's hunger to educate herself about the best ways to feed, move, and care for her body. In The Body Book, she shares what she has learned and continues to discover about nutrition, exercise, and the mind/body connection.
Grounded in science and informed by real life, The Body Book offers a comprehensive overview of the human body and mind, from the cellular level up. From demystifying and debunking the hype around food groups to explaining the value of vitamins and minerals, listeners will discover why it's so important to embrace the instinct of hunger and to satisfy it with whole, nutrient-dense foods. Cameron also explains the essential role of movement, the importance of muscle and bone strength and why we need to sweat a little every day.
The Body Bookdoes not set goals to reach in seven days or thirty days or a year. It offers a holistic, long-term approach to making consistent choices and reaching the ultimate goal: A long, strong, happy, healthy life.

Thanks to this book, I have not enjoyed a single thing I've eaten in 3 weeks. She has frightened me out of eating bad non whole foods and now my meals are filled with nasty oatmeal and tasteless Quinoa. I've lost 12 pounds but I think that's mostly because food is so delicious lately that I don't even finish my meals. I imagine that over the next couple of weeks I will waste away and die because anything is better than eating canned tomatoes. I recommend this book to people who are not as impressionable as I am.
I love the different approach she took on eating healthy. Society tells us to eat healthy and exersice regularly simply to loose weight (and of course that's exactly what you need to do) But Carmen Diaz broke it down and explained the "WHY" you should do certain things versus what you are use to doing. She opens your mind to help you to live a healthier lifestyle and gives you an understanding of the benifits from doing so. She is not talking about "loosing weight" or "gaining weight" because it is NOT a diet book or a meal plan book and it's definitely not an exercise book. It is simply a book about your body for those women who are trying to live a healthier lifestyle (not necessarily a skinny lifestyle).
It targets ALL WOMEN. This book is ideal for the typical "i need to loose weight" women, but it especially targets the " I'm too skinny, and i'm tired of people pointing that out" women too. It's basically a book on learning how to be healthy and how to love and care for the body you were born with. Great motivational book!
i love that Carmen Diaz gave a personal realistic approach to this book. She fills you with so much information in a Down to earth way that grabs your attention. I especially love to be able to hear her voice in the beginning to the audio, she really does personalize the book and gives you a warm feeling that makes you believe every word she says. Like i said, it's very motivational! i already got 2 other people on it! :) Thanx girl!
Yes, I knocked it out in 2 nights. This book was motivational. There are no hidden secrets but great reminders and new perspectives. Nobody has it easy. It takes discipline to eat right and maintain a fit lifestyle. Loved the narrator!
I felt like it was a good combination of how the body works and real life applications.
Cameron... of course....
The narrator does a great job! At times I felt like she WAS Cameron Diaz.
Cameron does a great job talking about loving the body you have. It's true! We don't give ourselves enough credit. It reminded me to reconnect with myself and listen to what my body is telling me.
Silicon Valley Realtor, and avid reader and listener! Thanks, Audible for all the hours together!
I think so highly of Cameron Diaz as an actress and still will even after trying to get through this very disappointing and information...less audible book. I would say to mums out there that if you have a young daughter that is possibly uncomfortable with her body image, or not interested in taking instruction from you, then download this book for her.
Guns Germs and Steel
The narrator was speaking as if she were on a teen hollywood movie. I could barely get through her narration.
This is clearly a hollywood idol trying to add the check mark of a publication to her name.
Well narrated, great info!
Very good info, very inspiring…
nope - this was the first one, very good overall, worth listening to and referring to over and over
It got me back to the gym and eating properly!
