Last week, one of the athletes I train approached me about an article he came across in Time Magazine.
My reaction to his comments was: “You have to be kidding me.”
I was going to blast the article and the complete lack of social responsibility Time Magazine showed by printing the article.
This is just ANOTHER example of a staff writer for a magazine completely misinterpreting research and putting together a story of lies with a catchy title to attract an audience.
Effective journalism, yes. Effective lifestyle advice, no. In fact, printing articles like this is dangerous and essentially says that Time Magazine weighs you reading their article more than your life (or at least your quality of life).
John Berardi took a more level-headed approach to commenting on this article.
Find out what his response was to the “Exercise makes you fatter” slogan of Times Magazine.
