Cameron Diaz on The Body Book and the salty, fatty foods she sometimes craves.
In The Body Book, a big part of your healthy eating philosophy is moderation. How do you maintain that on set ?
Just a minute ago I passed a table with buffalo wings. I could taste them on my lips. Then I asked myself if I wanted to feel the way I'd feel after eating a bunch of wings. The answer was no. I eat everything I want to eat. In the end, I didn't want them.
You live in Los Angeles and New York City. Do you find it easier to eat healthfully in one place or the other?
New York has a lot more restaurants than L.A., so I end up eating out a lot more there. But it's just as easy to get clean food in New York as it is in L.A. Anywhere you go, you can ask for something simple like a piece of grilled fish with vegetables. If I'm going to a restaurant for a culinary experience, I'm ordering something from the menu. Otherwise, I order the simplest thing I can. In L.A., I eat at home more.
