Anyone else have this issue?

Posted: 09/23/2012 in Uncategorized


I swear I have read about the first 10 pages of each of these issues. That’s it. 10 pages. The only parts I actually enjoy are the recipes and the success stories. A few months ago I put a stack of them in the recycling bin – also mostly unread. Something about being told I can drop a jeans size in 21 days with a few simple exercises when I’ve been busting my ass on more complicated things for a lot longer really makes me feel bad pisses me off.

    I agree, I’d like to see more of these magazines promoting sustainable, sensible and healthy weight loss, not “starve 6lb off in three weeks! gain it all back again in the fourth! Just in time for our next issue!”

      Something I find particularly ridiculous is that when you read the success stories, they’re all about how they did it slowly over time through diet & exercise changes – AFTER they tried fad magazine diets over and over, and yo-yo’d, and it didn’t work. I got the magazine through a deal on Groupon (or some such thing) – and I started wishing I’d opted for Newsweek or National Geographic instead.

      It’s a viscous cycle that these magazines promote. I really like your idea of promoting sustainable, sensible health!
