Alternately, this could be called "The 4 Best Quotes From Cameron Diaz's The Body Book."
Because, really, these are the reason we read it in the first place. And when a book starts with a section about pubes being "a pretty draping that makes it a little mysterious to the one who might be courting your sexiness," you know that s--t is going to be good.
Maybe they're not the weirdest or the grosses things ever printed (they're mostly just about the human body—everybody has one), but it's definitely interesting to hear a Kids Choice Award winner talk about her menstrual flow.
Anyway, these are the passages that had us going:
1. On Urine: "What color is your pee when you wake up and throughout the day? Generally speaking, a pale yellow color means that you are well hydrated. A dark yellow color and infrequent urination suggest dehydration."
2. On Period Stains: "If there is a bloodstain [on your white pants], use cold water, not hot, and wash as soon as possible. Hot water makes the proteins in the blood set and that makes the stain stick around longer. Just a little tip from me to you!"
3. On Poop: "The food you eat determines the size, color, consistency, and amount of your poop. Want proof? Eat a helping of beets and then pay attention the next few times you have a seat on the throne. Beets turn bowel movements a dark pink or red tone, so it's easy to see how long it takes for food to pass through your system."
4. On Fast Food: "I know about fast food. I grew up on fast food...My friends and I would roll through the drive-thru, and I would get a double cheeseburger with French fries and onion rings. When I was in junior high, my friend's brother worked at Taco Bell. Every day after school, I would come by and order one bean burrito with extra cheese and extra sauce, no onions, and he would always give me two. Every day after school, I ate two bean burritos and a Coke. Every single day, for three years, that was what I ate. Every single day."
This one is weird because who wouldn't want to eat at Taco Bell every day?
