Cameron Diaz is on a publicity tour for her new healthy living tome, The Body Book and this morning, she spoke passionately about it with Robin Roberts on Good Morning America. Diaz opens by asserting that she is not a nutrition expert, stressing that she reached out to many in the field to compile the book. It's not a diet guide or a new GOOP (exhale, Gwyneth), rather, she says, it's about understanding what food and exercise do to your body.
"Why don't we have this information?" she says. "This is information about our body...We're with it from beginning to end, all day long, from birth to the end of our journey we are in our body. We don't know anything about it. We don't learn about it in school at all...We get so much information about diets and what you should and shouldn't do to look a certain way, but nobody ever talks about what your body does with those things...and how it actually makes you feel."
