Really... what's up with these fitness magazines? i don't subscribe to them but from time to time I will buy one to try to incorporate them into my workouts. Well I brought one today and I couldn't shake the uneasy feeling in my stomach about all the advertisements. Grant it that all magazines are full of them and that's how the magazines get their sponsorship but come on?! Every other page is an ad for some "thermogensis" fat burner, hydroxycut, stacker, etc... This is crazy. I have been working hard at trying to make my body the most healthy and i think i've done well but looking at these ads is disturbing especially if they're in between an article about eating clean. To each his own... I don't know if they work or not but I could see how these companies make billions off people. And as my sp friend mentioned to me why is Jillian Michaels selling them? What is going on? Why can't health and fitness magazines be sponsored by organic farmers and the american diabetic association, food and drug administration and every one else who keeps telling us to eat healthy and exercise? I hate getting mixed messages. Okay... i feel a little better now.
