Cameron Diaz is a model-turned-actress and is best known for her big smile, comedic roles, long legs, and muscular arms.
This past April, actress and author Cameron Diaz released her second book, The Longevity Book: The Science of Aging, the Biology of Strength, and the Privilege of Time, published as a follow-up to The Body Book: The Law of Hunger, the Science of Strength, and Other Ways to Love Your Amazing Body, which hit The New York Times bestsellers list.
Diaz’s second book isn’t as much an anti-aging manifesto as it is a message of how to embrace aging as a woman and what can be done to move along fluidly in each stage of the aging process. Working out and dieting are definitely a part of The Longevity Book, and she offers many tips on what can work and has worked for many women.
For her, working out isn’t optional; it just needs to be done, and once the body starts getting used to it, it will crave exercise and can’t do without it.
Diaz maintains her shapely figure by eating a low-carb diet that’s high in fats (that is, good fats—don’t get too excited). These kinds of diets often seem to be the key to many lean and fit celebrity bodies. Her workout regimen includes running, yoga, weightlifting, and Pilates.
Her overall attitude towards food is to take a balanced approach, saying, for example, that you don’t have to eat the whole cake but can instead just have a piece. This advice is similar to what some fitness and diet experts have been talking about for some time—moderation is the key to maintaining a healthy weight and attitude.
