Introduction

Fitness, nutrition, awareness, and discipline are not just words, but tools. The human body is an amazing machine. A woman’s body is a culmination of everything she has ever eaten and all of the physical activity she has ever done. Women are constantly being pressured about how they look. This book was written to help women everywhere understand their bodies and what they are capable of, instead of absorbing the misinformation that surrounds them. Finally, Diaz wants readers to know how amazing it feels to nourish their bodies with nutritious foods and to keep the body moving. She has consulted with nutritional and medical experts as well as experts in science and psychology to gather the important information in this book.

Chapter 1

The nutrients in the food one consumes guides how cells develop, grow, and thrive. Human cells are living structures made of fat and protein, and they use oxygen to change nutrients from what one eats into energy. This is why it is so important to treat one’s cells well by consuming the most nutritious foods possible. Nutrition is worth one’s time and attention because good nutrition fills the body with energy. To be healthy is to have a body that is working at its full potential and a mind that is clear, happy, and productive...

This book is very informative on how to live a healthy lifestyle. It does not pound you with fad diets, and quick workouts that are not effective. The information this book contains will help you to understand your body. Our bodies are like machines, and like machines they need fuel; food, proper nutrition, and daily exercise to function properly. The summary gives insight on how proper nourishment and daily movement will help you to feel good.
I like how this summary also gives insight on the industry mass producing the foods we eat and how the nutritional value is not the same as food that comes from our gardens. I like this because I too try to grow as many vegetables and can and freeze them for my family in order to eat as healthy as we can. Eating too much processed food can have a negative impact on our bodies and make us sick. The times we eat and how often are vital to the nourishment of our bodies as well and there is a lot that society has lost along the way by... Read more
The Body Book introduces the world to fitness in a very tangible way. This is a book that is not focused on heavy discipline diets, or anything like that. It does a great job of introducing simple things, nutrition at a primal level. The book talks about nutrition and exercise as a way of allowing the body to absorb natural things.

I liked the book, it featured a lot of real world advice, and it’s written in a down to earth fashion. I love how it doesn’t focus on numbers, or trying to get you to use a calculator and a scale every other day. Instead, it gives you the tools to eat well, and love life. That’s the key here, there’s love in the way it’s presented, and that is why I enjoyed reading this book. I look forward to putting the ideas into practice. I highly recommend this one.
I mean, just look at Cameron Diaz. She positively glows. And she isn't a bag of bones, either. She was always naturally skinny, so she'd been told she was "lucky" but in her younger years she ate horribly and her complexion was awful. Once she started eating better, cutting out the fast food, the processed junk, she saw results almost immediately.

I love this summary because it breaks the book down into the essentials. There are quite a few sections dedicated to the types of foods she recommends, with a lot of encyclopedic explanations about how each ingredient affects the body, both good and bad. She talks about how everything, from our hormone levels to our organ-function health, is a direct reflection of what we put in our mouths. Even the stuff we ate months ago. Scary, but it's not the first time I've heard this so it's reinforcement. She emphasizes movement. And she isn't specific because she doesn't care what you choose as an activity. As long as it's...
