Thirty, flirty and thriving are just some of the words to describe this famous Hollywood actress. At thirty eight, Cameron Diaz has already garnered award nominations for her movie roles in There’s Something About Mary and Being John Malkovich – films where both her acting skills and sexy body are showcased. Cameron has also been included in Maxim’s Top 100 Sexiest Women with a body that shames most of the women in Hollywood half her age! But this tall, gorgeous blond claims she doesn’t like diets or exercise programs. So how in the world does she still end up looking like that?
Cameron Diaz’s Weight Loss Help
The There’s Something About Mary star tells OK magazine about her best diet plan ever – The Lunch Box Diet created by Simon Lovell, the hard bodied fitness trainer from the UK. His pitch “eat all day long and see noticeable weight loss” is proving successful as the Lunch Box Diet has been called the “slimming craze of 2008?”, “revolutionary”, graced the cover of top-name magazines and has even found its way to Cameron Diaz. Diaz goes on to tell OK that when celebrities and Hollywood magazines start endorsing weight loss programs, they typically have “fad diets” ring to them. But she firmly stands by her claim that The Lunch Box Diet is a great weight loss system – if not the best healthy weight loss program ever designed.
But what is it exactly? The Lunch Box Diet’s main idea is to graze all day long to achieve weight loss. This speeds up your body’s metabolic rate which means that you burn calories more efficiently. It also balances your blood sugar levels which reduces cravings for bad things. It’s a good diet plan for the diabetic and an advisable weight loss plan for men!
Unlike other crazy quick weight loss programs, The Lunch Box Diet even allows alcohol to be included in the diet considering moderation of course. And it doesn’t deprive you of having a “reward day” when you enjoy a take-away or something that you know is a bit bad for you.

The lanky actress is lucky to have a fast metabolism and a passion for high energy sports but she still has to watch what she eats, specially now that she’s in her thirties.

Before the Charlie’s Angels star could start filming the movie, she had to undergo some extensive exercise programs. She admits that at the end of the day, her fitness training exercise program was so intense she thought she would die! Since then, she has sought the help of celebrity fitness trainer Teddy Bass to keep her in shape.
Her exercise program requires her to work out five days a week but focuses strongly on outdoor sports exercises such as surfing, snow boarding and hiking.
Cam Does Cardio Exercise
The third generation American-Cuban actress says she does 25-30 minutes of cardio exercise and weights plus reverse lunge exercises and wide plies exercises. Her sexy abs? All thanks to the fitness exercise program her fitness trainer, Bass. “You need to burn fat with cardio exercises to see ab definition. Fitness machines such as elliptical machines are great because you have to contract your abs in order to stay upright. You can also try cycling exercises, kayaking or Pilates exercise,” advised fitness trainer Bass.
