Publisher's Summary

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Story
    "Even better than I expected!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! This is not a diet book or a work out book. Instead it explains how the female body works, and how to take care of yourself - no matter what shape you are in. I will recommend this to those who are at their ideal fitness level as well as those who need motivation to lose weight. It motivated me to move more and be more aware of what kind of food I was putting into my body. I feel better already! It's truly a wonderful way to educate yourself on being strong, fit and happy.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Well researched! So much amazing information - and it was written (spoken) in a way that was fun to listen to. There was a lot of scientific stuff as well, and she even made that sound fun! Not an easy feat.


    What about Cameron Diaz and Sandy Rustin ’s performance did you like?

    The information was articulated clearly and in a fun, easy to understand manner. Like a friend was chatting to you. Just loved it! I felt so happy listening to this book, it really made me feel empowered.


    What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

    That we should all educate ourselves on how to be OUR best. We should not be defined by anyone else's standards, but be as strong and fit as we can, for ourselves.


    Any additional comments?

    This will be an audio book that I will go back and listen to. I may also get the book so I can highlight certain things. It really is *that* good!

    Would you listen to The Body Book again? Why?


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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!

    Story
    "Something i would recommend to a selective few."
    What did you love best about The Body Book?

    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).


    What did you like best about this story?

    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!


    What about Cameron Diaz and Sandy Rustin ’s performance did you like?

    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!

    "not got someone who knows some of this"

    this is for the person who knows very little about health, nutrition, and your body. I do know ca lot of basics, but hoped this would give me more motivation to continue on my fitness journey. This, unfortunately, didn't do that for me. I couldn't finish it. I wanted to like it, but not fit everyone.
