Finally: An actress with a healthy relationship with food. Stunning — and ripped — actress Cameron Diaz is writing a nutrition book for teen girls learn about the importance of eating right, according to E! News.

"This book is not about weight, it's about making the right choices," a source told E! of Diaz's new project. "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."

The What to Expect When You're Expecting star was inspired to get into nutrition and health by her pal and GOOP maven, Gwyneth Paltrow.

"Cameron has become very close to Gwyneth and it's been very interesting for her to see what Gwyneth is doing with GOOP," the insider added. "She's been inspired by Gwyneth and the way she uses her game to influence and help people. Now Cameron wants to do the same."

She's not stopping with the book, though: Diaz will make appearances to talk about nutrition and plans to launch a website on the subject.

"Cameron is going to be visiting high schools around the country to talk to teenagers about their food choices and what is important to them," the publishing insider said.
