Cameron penned her first book, titled THE BODY BOOK, its three parts mind, nutrition, and fitness. She shares her formula for becoming happier, healthier, and stronger in a positive, essential guide grounded in science and inspired by personal experience. Her book will demystify and debunk the hype, explain the value of vitamins and minerals, explain the essential role of movement, importance of muscle and bone strength and why we need to sweat a little every day.
Learn her healthy way of eating, new choices and lessons she’s learned along the way, she went from being a skinny girl who could eat cheeseburgers and burritos without gaining weight – but had with horrible acne – to a radiant skinned gal just with a diet change. Cameron tells Seventeen Magazine, in their February issue, ”I used to have deep, boiling pimples – the kind that hurt so badly, I didn’t want to leave my house. My friends said they didn’t notice, but I’d say, “It’s the only thing anyone can see! Sometimes on a Friday-night drive-through run, I would order a double cheeseburger with French fries and onion rings. I was the poster child for being both skinny and unhealthy – and I had the zits to prove it.” After researching (before Google too!), she learned that by giving up fried and processed meals for more natural foods, her acne disappeared and her energy increased dramatically. She’s not preaching a no fries life, but just a more balanced conscious way of eating, with the occasional fast food craving fulfillment.
From her Instagram account @CameronDiaz she shared a makeup free photo when her first copy of the bound beauty book arrived, sharing her excitement in her natural way of looking when she isn’t working. Inspiring as of course she is as beautiful as always, but obviously not “made up.” What’s most admirable to me is Cameron is on a real mission to improve girls’ perceptions of their outer appearances, being the spotlight has made her painfully aware of how much pressure society puts on us all to “look good.”
Her suggestion to all of us, when dealing with younger girls, avoid statements that say how cute or pretty they are and focus more on what their favorite school subjects are or their hobbies they’re most passionate about. “Because every time we address our daughters or our nieces by saying, “You look lovely today” we are reinforcing the idea that the most important thing for a woman is to look good.”
Cameron is an active, healthy, hard working gal, but never forgets to laugh and have a great time, because no matter how healthy your eating habits are or your work out regime may be, being joyful, laughing and smiling, remembering to take things less serious than you did before, are really the key components to being truly beautiful from the inside out. And smiling is proven to improve your health and moods!
