Cameron Diaz, the actress who played a fitness guru Jules in the recent box office hit, What to Expect When You’re Expecting , is currently composing a fitness guide to help young women stay fit.
According to the Associated Press , HarperCollins is scheduled to publish the Charlie’s Angel’s book containing information to educate women on nutrition and wellness.
E! Online reports that the book will offer advice aimed at young women in order to “engage and empower” young teenage girls.
"She wants to stop their fixation on being thin, and for teenage girls to understand that being healthy is more important … She wants to use her celebrity to make a difference. She knows she is a role model to girls and she really wants to use that position to do good.”
A rep from HarperCollins says the book is more than just a diet book, but will focus on making smart, healthy decisions about food.
“This book isn't about her. And it's not a diet of any kind. Of course, it's her own journey that has helped her realize what's important, but she wants the book to appeal to everyone, and not just be about her own food choices."
In addition to expertise from top nutritionists, the fitness guide will also feature advice from Diaz’s celebrity friends such as Drew Barrymore, Jennifer Lopez, and Gwyneth Paltrow. The book is currently untitled and will be released sometime in the fall of 2013.
