even though i can’t hold the author of this thread accountable for all the bullshit in men’s health, she is still a part of that system. the magazine she writes for is junk food for the mind.
men’s health is like watered-down ‘information’ for men who don’t want to think too hard.
it showcases all these ‘studies’, which are weakly explained, sometimes taken out of context, they often draw illogical conclusions from their research, they post shitty workout routines, etc, etc…
it is junk just like 99% of mainstream magazines at your local grocery store. i guess this is just the shortcoming of being in big business… profits matter more than the product.
i think the only redeeming quality of the magazine is the ‘belly-off club’, and even that segment of the magazine often gives bad advice, and readers will infer wrong ‘truths’ about dieting from the anecdotal stories.
are we being too xenophobic with this outsider coming into our forum? probably, but with good reason, IMHO.
if i was a cop on gear , i sure as hell would not want to help out that sort of magazine in any shape or form. it’s just another piece of the puzzle in the bullshit system that keeps spreading misinformation about everything they can get their hands on in order to make a buck.
