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.

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!

Cameron Diaz changed my life!!!!!

Where does The Body Book rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

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.
