Description

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.

display_description Here the author 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, she 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 her hunger to educate herself about the best ways to feed, move, and care for her body. In this book, she shares what she has learned and continues to discover about nutrition, exercise, and the mind and body connection. Grounded in science and informed by real life, it 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, readers will discover why it is so important to embrace the instinct of hunger and to satisfy it with whole, nutrient dense foods. The book also explains the essential role of movement, the importance of muscle and bone strength and why we need to sweat a little every day. It does 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.
