I loved what Dr. Wurtman had to say mainly because it’s true especially about the health magazines using perfectly toned models to show you how to do exercises. When you are far from being in shape and trying to stay motivated and engaged, it can be just as depressing as reading a fashion magazine to see a perfect image that you don’t relate to used as an example. Hey Real Women work out too!!!

Excerpt- The models had arms so thin they could fit through a doughnut hole and it was obvious that they were as curveless as a Q-tip. “Why,” I asked myself, “do magazines still feel it necessary to display clothes, shoes, and even jewelry on bodies that are so unrepresentative of the typical woman?”
