Cameron Diaz can now add the title of "author" to her CV as The Body Book has just been released. The popular actress uses the book as a platform to share her knowledge about exercise and nutrition. "If you take care of your body you can have an even more amazing body," Diaz explained. However, the star does not claim to always be a beacon of healthy living, and admits that there have been times where she partook in junk food. "If you are what you eat, I was a bean burrito with extra cheese and extra sauce, no onions," she said.
The book includes the following:
"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."
Cameron Diaz took to Twitter and Instagram to share news concerning her first exposure with the publishing world.

In characteristic down-to-earth fashion, the 41-year-old actress tells her fans that the book is to serve as a guide. "It's not a plan, it's just information for you to have," she said.
