Cameron Diaz talks poop with Dr. Oz, chugs entire bottle of water

The practice of pooping properly? It exists, according to Cameron Diaz, who continued her no-holds-barred, "love your amazing body" tour on Wednesday, Jan. 15, in a Dr. Oz segment devoted to, uh, bowel movements.

The Body Book author, 41, who has previously shared her candid thoughts on the "crazy idea" of "young women undergoing laser hair removal on all of their lady bits," joined Dr. Oz on his talk show and shared her morning bowel movement routine. "This is the best way for me to go poop in the morning," she explained while holding a bottle of H2O filled to the brim. "Water wakes you up."

In fact, Diaz's routine for going no. 2 is two-fold. "First, I brush my teeth because I don't want to swallow all the bacteria in my teeth from the night before," she shared. "So I make sure that's gone and then…" The Other Woman hottie then held the bottle to her lips and proceeded to chug the entire thing -- a liter of water -- as Dr. Oz and the stunned crowd marveled at her skill. "I can't believe you can do that!" he exclaimed. "It's unbelievable!"

The show host added to Diaz, "I love how in the book you're so honest about poop. I'm going to high-five you on this." In one part of her guide to healthy holistic living, an unabashed Diaz writes, "Let's talk about poop, baby! Yes, you heard me right. Listen, it's a natural and necessary part of being human. Now I know that some people don't like talking about their bowel movements but here's why I'm talking about it: because your poop is a key indicator of your overall health."

In another frank chapter in the book, Diaz openly discussed her painful struggle with acne and how she overcame it. "I mean, I had terrible, terrible skin," she confessed. "It was embarrassing, and I did everything I could think of to make it go away." She found the solution was not resorting to harsh prescriptions or covering up her flaws with makeup, but considering what goes into her body.

The actress told Dr. Oz on Wednesday that she was inspired to write the book so she could help women embrace and understand themselves: "I realized that women just have so much confusion about their bodies. They were literally looking at me going, 'how does this work? I don't understand it. I'm confused by it,'" she shared. "I thought how can you be confused by something that we spend our entire lives in. So because of that confusion, we've found ourselves comparing ourselves to other people, other women."

Summary? I missed that one.

not the op, but basically the post was about Jason Mraz asking people to limit themselves to using like two pieces of toilet paper for environmental reasons, and the comments were full of super tmi stories about periods and bowel movements and fun stuff like that.

Cameron seems cool so I'll allow it.
banana68 17th-Jan-2014 07:36 pm (UTC)
meh idk that she wants to be a guru or claims to be. in fact shes said quite a few times in interviews that shes just sharing what she's researched and wants to give it a wider, fun platform + she's no expert
i think she just gets excited by this stuff. lol whatever. she's genuine
carrie9142 17th-Jan-2014 08:04 pm (UTC)
I feel that way about Dr. Oz and his dumbass daughter.
sadisticsidhe 17th-Jan-2014 06:51 pm (UTC)
I thought chugging a bottle of water wasn't that great for you. Like doesn't it just go straight through you because your body is like WOAH WOAH WOAH overload!
cricketgrl 17th-Jan-2014 06:56 pm (UTC)
It's not. Hard on your kidneys, you can drown them
banana68 17th-Jan-2014 07:37 pm (UTC)
really tho? ONE bottle???
breaking_skies 18th-Jan-2014 05:03 am (UTC)
You CAN overdose on water, especially if you're a young child.

But a liter is only a little over 4 8oz cups of water. I've been able to drink 2L of water as long as its not too cold.

Apparently a 40 y o died from drinking 4L of water in a 2 hour period in 2007. weiiird

I read the headline as "chugs an entire bottle of poop water"

Also not going to lie, I love pooping. Being constipated because of my meds was the absolute worst side effect I had, and I had some pretty unfun ones.
cricketgrl 17th-Jan-2014 06:57 pm (UTC)
It's the best way to control weight, imo.
duckyduck92 17th-Jan-2014 07:08 pm (UTC)
I love pooping too, no shame
roxas39 17th-Jan-2014 07:54 pm (UTC)

molkat 17th-Jan-2014 06:55 pm (UTC)
She does realize that she swallows while she sleeps?

I find that a good cup of coffee cleanses me both ways

aria_grace 17th-Jan-2014 07:34 pm (UTC)
True that. I always poop after coffee. Sometimes it's annoying.
roxas39 17th-Jan-2014 07:55 pm (UTC)
For me it's tea, or Warm lemon and ginger
ohwutevernvm 17th-Jan-2014 08:44 pm (UTC)
that's true, idek if it's a bad coffee or whatever that made my stomach ache so bad. But it works though. I just don't like the feeling of it tho. it was painful
black_swan87 17th-Jan-2014 06:59 pm (UTC)
why is everyone trying to to be a lifestyle guru?
lr489 17th-Jan-2014 07:00 pm (UTC)
easy money
banana68 17th-Jan-2014 07:38 pm (UTC)
she's said many times that she's not a guru
she just gets excited about health and wants to give all this stuff and body self-love or whatever a widfer platform
lr489 17th-Jan-2014 07:00 pm (UTC)
i find it hysterical that the few gay friends i have refuse to talk about poop but have no problem discussing fisting tips.
itsintobethin 17th-Jan-2014 07:00 pm (UTC)
im pretty sure i drink at least 4-5 gallons of water a day. i know im not diabetic but my mom has been asking me to slowly ween off the water. she says im not as thirsty as i think.

ace_kay 17th-Jan-2014 07:05 pm (UTC)
Yeah, that's not healthy. You can actually die from drinking too much water.
extrahotlatte 17th-Jan-2014 07:00 pm (UTC)
I always drink coffee in the morning (obsessed with my Keurig...just got it), but as soon as I wake up I drink a big glass of water on my nightstand and it really does wake me up. I used to not believe it, but then I started doing it and I wake up faster/feel more refreshed.
chomsky 17th-Jan-2014 07:03 pm (UTC)
I can't drink water when I just wake up just like I can't drink water when I'm hungover. It makes me feel sick and it makes my mouth taste gross. The first substance into my body has to be coffee, period. That said I drink coffee by the pot.
