Cameron Diaz – The Body Book

I must confess, I am not actually reading this book. I am listening to the audiobook. I’m a multitasker at heart and sitting still to read a book is very hard for me. Even when I watch TV I like to bake or organize something. I started listening to it in the car on my way to and from work and while on the elliptical and I must say I am really enjoying it. Not just the book but also the act of being entertained while doing two things that I normally find boring.

I am a few chapters/hours in and I am really enjoying it. She talks about food and health in a different way than I’ve heard before. She breaks it down so it’s easy to understand and it just clicks. I have a “Duh” moment every time I listen. She gets down to the basics and actually explains things, for example what exactly gluten is. I probably talk to ten people a day that are on a gluten free diet and claim it’s the devil but I have never before heard what it is and what purpose it serves. She also talks about how being hungry is a good thing and should be embraced. It’s basically your body’s fuel light blinking indicating you are getting low. And I’ve always known that whole grains are so much better than white rice, white pasta or white bread but now I know why. And that helps making better choices so much easier!

It’s definitely worth a read or a listen! I guarantee you will learn something you didn’t know before. And it’s written in such a way that it’s as much entertaining as it is informative.

Oh and if you choose to buy the audio book over the hardcover, it comes with a PDF full of pictures, charts and diagrams to better help you understand what she's discussing.

She released this photo to promote her book, wearing no makeup. Koodos to her! :)


  1. Miss D, I saw this book a few weeks ago and started reading a bit of it while I was in the store. It actually looked really good. I'm glad to know that someone is actually reading it and says that it's great. Maybe I'll have to go back and get it :) Miss you! Love the blog. Cher :)

    1. Hi Cher! So good to hear from you! :) Yes! Its a great book! I might even have to listen to it twice as there is so much info to retain. Hope you and your family are doing well! I miss you girls! If time allows we should all try to get together for lunch sometime! :)
