    From Amazon.com

    Focused on "healthy living" rather than chronic dieting, Cooking Light is geared towards both the veteran cook who wants to "lighten up" and the novice determined to give up prepackaged "diet" meals. Each issue covers a different theme, from "superfast suppers" to "pretty, easy fruit pies," and includes features on food-related health trends; fast, healthy meals; and original recipes from readers. We especially like it when the editors rescue a reader's favorite, albeit fatty, recipe, giving it a healthy makeover, showing before-and-after stats on calories, fat, and cholesterol. The message is clear: you don't have to sacrifice the foods you love once you learn to "eat smart." --Daphne Durham ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent recipes and I love the sections on Ethnic foods
    I love Cooking Light. I love to cook, and to me all of Cooking Light's recipes are something a home cook dreams of. There are fancy recipes for impressing guests and there are good everyday recipes. One aspect of the magazine which I am really impressed with is the emphasis on AUTHENTIC ethnic cooking. I also subscribe to Bon Appetit, which also has good recipes, but they don't have too many ethnic dishes. I love the fact that Cooking Light has recognized that other cuisines can be healthy and delicious. Cooking Light doesn't tone down the spices or try to "Americanize" ethnic recipes too much.

    I'm not a dessert person so I have not attempted to make any of the delicious looking desserts, but the ones that I have prepared for guests and potlucks have turned out to be very good.

    Please subscribe to this magazine!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Good stuff
    This magazine takes a new approach to light cooking. Not only is every issue packed full of recipes that list calories and fat content, but there are lifestyle and exercise tips too. Cooking Light is about a whole lifestyle and the magazine aims to bring you closer to that. One recipe I tried was chicken stuffed with brie and caramelized onions! It was wonderful and my husband had no idea it was LIGHT! I recommend it for everyday cooking, all recipes are easy to do and haven't been time consuming with easy to find ingredients, yet they still have a little flair.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Fun, Informative for Food and Health
    While I no longer subscribe, I find myself borrowing friends' copies, because this is just a great magazine.
    Not only are there informative articles about health, workout poses, product reviews, and the like, but the recipes really are great. I love the fact that they take a cherished family recipe (you know the kind, with 10,000 calories) and morph it into something far healthier yet still tasty. Also, these magazines stay relevant. I mine my old ones often for ideas to make my family's meals healthier. It's consistently a worthy read, with fine photos, and even better recipes.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Yummy
    There are some really good recipes in this magazine. The only bad part are the ads on healthy living. I prefer healthy cooking.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Needs a name change
    This is still an excellent magazine, but it should really be called something like "Living Light." The most recent issue (May 2004), for example, requires slogging through 122 pages of lifestyle articles and advertisements before there are any serious cooking articles or any recipes. The entire issue was 272 pages and claimed to contain 122 recipes, so there's still plenty there. But if you want serious cooking guidance and aren't interested in lifestyle articles like "Sports Bras" and "Admirable Abs," you might want to consider a magazine like Cooks Illustrated. ...

    4-0 out of 5 stars Not as good as it used to be
    I don't know if it's that my weight lifting has taken me to more of an advanced stage, but I no longer find myself as eager to dive into "Men's Health" each month as I used to be. The magazine has changed somewhat over the years. Sure it still has some good articles about training, and so on. In fact, it has just about everything "Playboy" has going for it, except the nude pictorials and fiction. But "Men's Health" has become a little bland. It is not aimed at hardcore weight lifters, and often of late it seems to be aimed at people in the upper echelon of subscribers, pushing high-priced gear and clothing that someone who works in the real world may not be able to buy. The magazine's publishers used to point with pride to the fact that they were based in rural Pennsylvania and as a result in touch with the average man. You don't get that feeling anymore. Also, some of what they tell you has to be taken with a grain of salt. Little training tips they'll drop in may have merit, but need to be part of a much larger picture. Doing a squat will help get larger legs, but there's more to it than that, and sometimes in the interest of brevity, the magazine falls short. Still, you'll find a lot of interest in each issue. Here's hoping it will one day be a five-star magazine again.

    MAGAZINE REVIEW:

    The magazine has plenty of good articles on health, exercise, nutrition, sex, etc.

    This is one of the few magazines that I can actually read from cover to cover; it has tips on how to fight off sickness (i.e. cold, flu, etc.), how to exercise--I've found out what I've been doing wrong in my workouts as a result, and how to please a woman.

    If you're interested work-out tips like I am, this magazine offers some but not enough... For extensive work-out tips, I suggest you go get "Exercise&Health"; in my opinion, "Exercise&Health" has the best work-out tips, and the magazine has lots of them! For general health, however, I recommend "Men's Health".

    5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine
    I don't think this is the BEST men's magazine out there, but I think the magazine is pretty decent. I paid about $12 for a year's subscription through a magazine wholesaler and I think it's worth that much, maybe even more. Definitely worth a try.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An excellent second choice
    There was no way I could get a subscription to Playgirl without my roommates catching on, so I settled for Men's Health. It wasn't exactly what I wanted, but it is close enough, and I can leave it around the apartment without arousing (no pun intended) suspicion. Heck, the other guys even read it occasionally. If you're in my situation, you'll find Men's Health to be right up your alley. I just have one bone to pick with the editors: too much black and white photography! Where are the full-color abs? Spring for some color, gents, it's the 21st century.

    2-0 out of 5 stars sad to agree with "sad demise"
    I wish it wasn't so, but it is. "Sad demise" hit the nail on the head. I used to be a faithful subscriber and even gave annual subscriptions to my 2 sons and son-in-law for Christmas. One by one they have asked me to drop or change the subscription. While there are still a few worthwhile items in each issue, the erosion of value is swift. Dittos on Greg Gutfeld too, I really miss his contributions. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars 10 stars to WW!!
    Currently this is the only magazine I subscribe to, and I never want to cancel it. I hope it never ends.
    Packed with new and interesting recipes, inspirational stories, different work outs, and awesome tips to help us along our "journey" to being a healhier person, Weight Watchers is one of the few magazines of it's kind that is worth the price(or maybe even more) of the subscription. Anyone who is on the program should have a subscription. Only comes every two months, but it's worth the wait.
    I keep all my copies and refer back for guidance, and ideas for new dinners/snacks.

    5-0 out of 5 stars New Experiences
    I subscribe to the Weight Watchers magazine. I love the personal stories about weight loss. It is encouraging to me because I am trying to make "eating right" a way of life. I try not to look at it as a diet. I am now eating healther than I have ever eaten in my entire life and I feel great doing it. I LOVE IT! The recipes and coupons are excellent. It is a wonderful magazine. I would recommend it to everyone.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Useful for everyone
    I have been on weight watchers now for three years. However I just started subscribing to the Weight Watchers magazine in the past six months. In many ways it continues to inspire and jum start my motivation. When I am feeling frustrated I can look in the magazine to find something, ranging from recipes to great success stories, to motivate me. This months issue on vacations will be really useful for you in thinking about this summer. Even if you are not on wieght watchers and are interested in health living this magazine will be helpful to you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get WW, If Only for the Receipes
    I lost 34 pounds on Weight Watchers and part of that was because of their phenomenal publication. My wife and enjoy every issue, filled with new research, helpful facts, loads of coupons and those recipes.

    My wife enjoys cooking from the recipes. What I love about WW is that you can live a normal life and eat the things you want. You'll be surprised at how many calories you can cut out of a regular dish just by substituting certan ingredients. And you don't even taste the difference! Sometimes its even better.

    If you're trying to lose weight through WW, you really should have the magazine. It's inexpensive and it will help you along the way.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Great for motivation!
    This is a great magazine if you're following the Weight Watchers program. It will give you a little extra motivation when you see it in the mailbox and real the articles. It does have some godo articles and I love reading the success stories. My only complaint is that I wouldn't use many of their recipies and menus, it's just not food that I like. ... Read more

    Covering women's fitness, beauty, health, nutrition, and style in a breezy but authoritative tone, Self is a handbook for self-improvement. The magazine reads quickly, featuring loads of lists and short segments garnished with bright graphics and numerous product images. The exercise features are outstanding--clearly explained and illustrated moves accompany inspiring photos. Every issue contains creative routines and practical advice for staying motivated and preventing injuries. Self's signature "Flash" pages offer bite-sized bits of the very latest findings and trends for busy women. Usable features such as "Style Lab," in which wearable clothes are mixed and matched on nonmodels, and the "Eat-Right Road Map," with tips and healthful recipes, make this magazine more practical than the standard women's glossy. --Amy Horn ...

    5-0 out of 5 stars I love this magazine!
    My Self subscription started when Women's Sports & Fitness was cancelled. While it's not quite as athletic as that magazine was, Self has an extra emphasis on participation rather than competition. They use "reader models" in a lot of their photo spreads, and really emphasize the idea of a healthy and strong body, over an idealized "fashion model" body. Articles discuss the latest gym class crazes, nutrition and supplement breakthroughs, and debunking of fad diets. They do include some fashion (focus on workout apparel) and makeup (emphasis on natural look and healthy skin) info, but this is not a foo-foo Cosmo magazine. There are healthy recipes, workout plans targeting a new body part monthly, and creative ways to workout outside the gym as well as inside. Overall, this magazine focuses on real women's lives and how to make them healthier, happier, and more fit. There's a lot of practical advice here that is very applicable to most people's lives.

    5-0 out of 5 stars My self-help glossy mag of choice!
    While I look to Glamour and Mademoiselle magazines for intelligent topics on women's interests and look to Cosmopolitan for sex and relationship advice and Vogue for the latest fashion trends, I look to Self for self-improvement. This glossy mag features articles on how to stay fit, eat healthy, look and feel great and delves into issues such as breast cancer and different types of painful menstruation as well as articles on what a difference it makes to eat strawberries instead of chocolate for snack and the importance of drinking water. (My skin is looking great for having started drinking more water.) It is the mag I look to to make me feel good! I have learned how to eat healthier snacks and different exercise routines by reading this gem. This is my first year as a subscriber to this magazine and I shall continue to subscribe to it every year!

    5-0 out of 5 stars I'm singing and walking!
    This magazine is so inspirational! I've been working out regularly now for 4 months. I feel so much better about myself that I have started to do other great things like taking a cooking class and SINGING! I even bought a voice lesson CD to practice regularly (Voice Lessons To Go by Vaccarino-it's awesome). So I'm cooking and singing and walking. Next I'll be kayaking!!

    2-0 out of 5 stars reasonably attractive, but content-starved
    As another reviewer stated, the content repeats over and over again, making a renewal a waste of money. Yes, Self has nice photography and a pretty layout, but that doesn't make it worth five stars. If you are even remotely into fitness, then Self will merely bore you - it contains such obvious information that it's almost laughable. Still, you might want to try it once, since it's cheap as magazines go, but reading it for true inspiration (other than all the beautiful models in tiny shorts that make you feel guilty) is a waste of your time and money. Reading it for fitness information would be like reading People magazine for political issues. There are better magazines out there, but this'll do if you just want something to leave lying around your house to make a good impression.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get to know your self
    This mag is great for any woman wanting to get to know her own self better. I would also recommend that women look into the videos "Goddess Worship" and "New Sex Now" for vital explorations of key areas of female pleasure. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Full of good stuff
    If it's important to women, they cover it. Each month I keep pages from this publication--recipes, articles, websites or products to try... bits of info to pass along to other women. Just a damn fine publication.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Boring, Really Boring
    .... The articles and spreads are not at all remarkable; there's nothing here that will blow your mind. The projects are fun but they don't look good at all. The recipes are ok but nothing you couldn't find in any cookbook. I understand that for a very low price you get 17 issues but if you actually hold an individual issue, it's incredibly thin. I noticed that even the binding is bigger than the amount of paper! .... Woman's Day is the school marm of the bunch.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Very Happy
    Subscriptions started promptly and I loved every issues. I cant say enough about Amazon.com. Everything they do is 1st class. You have a customer for life. Thanks!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Creative Recipe Ideas & Fun, Colorful Articles about Life
    A real favorite in this magazine is the page of quotes, It is sure to bring a smile or teach you something about life. They also always have cleaning tips, health topics, diet and exercise solutions, true stories, beauty hints, inspirational articles, soul nourishing tips, recipes, recipes and more recipes, family/children, flowers, end of the magazine article to make you think about life, and gardening hints.

    If you want to find a cover story fast, they have an "on our cover" section in the index. In Every Issue there is a shopper's guide and a recipe index.

    The articles are helpful and in the March 2002 issue they had an article on how to be less stressed. They also had an article on PCOS which is apparently more common than we women think.

    The beauty sections show you the newest fashion and you can decide if you want to adapt your style to the trends. Always seems rather chic.

    Some of the recipes in the March 2002 issue included:

    A luscious Lemon Coconut Pound Cake
    Coconut Macaroons
    Peanut Butter Oat Bars
    Baby Cheesecakes - really cute
    Banana Salsa
    French Oven Beef Stew
    Pasta with Shrimp

    The recipes are not difficult and seem practical.

    Even the advertising in this magazine is colorful and fun.

    A Very "American Gal" type magazine.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Teaches Enlightenment In Your Own Beauty
    I've always been a very physically active person.. I like to run and I like to work out.. but fitness magazines for women tend to be one way or the other: "Don't bother with weight loss, find inner peace with Yoga!" or "How Many Pieces of Lettuce You Can Eat A Day To Look Like Janet Jackson." Sure, it's mildly entertaining to look into varieties on either side now and then, but what about those of us who want some recipes, PRACTICAL training tips and quick workout guides?

    Shape magazine stresses the points that I think are most important in a women's fitness magazine. It offers inspiring weightloss stories, quick (and edible) meals, and fun workouts to boost your regular ones along. And while some of the workout tips CAN get repetitive, just remember.. there are only so many different ways to do a sit-up. Readers of any and ALL fitness magazines know that they usually have the same exercise tips to offer over and over.

    Shape encourages and enlightens. It shows a way to incorporate exercise into any lifestyle and gives you the encouragement to continue an exercise regimen-- no matter how sedentary you are.

    2-0 out of 5 stars It's OK.,
    This magazine is all right, but I have a few problems with it. The good thing about this magazine is that it's focused on fitness and health, which makes it my kind of magazine. It's got great success stories, good food to cook, and good rules for nutrition and your health. My biggest problem is that since I don't have a gym membership, I can't do most (if not any) of the moves in Shape Magazine. I'm tired of moves that you have to do at the gym, or equipment that costs over a thousand dollars just to do a little toning. They should at least give 5 moves that I can do without setting a foot inside a gym.

    Another problem is that I don't like that they show 5-foot-11 models, that are perfectly skinny, and with perfect flat abs, when they could show more *average* women, or possibly a little bit curvier. I don't know about you, but I think that you don't have to be skinny to be beautiful. I just wish that they could see that everyone comes in their different packages. I agree with A.T. also-they also need to be more diverse with their women-black people need to be shown a little more as I rarely ever see black women in this magazine. I suggest that if you have a gym membership, then you should buy SHAPE off the magazine stand every blue moon or so when you see a good issue. If you don't have a gym membership, like most of us, then get SELF instead; it also offers great motivation.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Good Magazine if you dont let the images get through you!
    Ok I'll be firm! This is a pretty good fitness magazine, but most of the images aren't very supportive for everybody at all. Sure they encourage me to try be fit but yet again I fear that these overly skinny models will make readers become anorexic or something. After all most people in the success stories arent what I'd call thin.. maybe more like fit overly aged individual. One look at this magazine and you'd think "Oh wow, I'm sure this magazine is telling me I can be that thin if I only read the magazine!" ERrrr... That's totally wrong! The most this magazine can do for you is make you fit for your age, not necessarily physically thin. Otherwise If you ignore the images I'd say this is a pretty good magazine. They even give you makeup tips and give good healthy eating habits. Although I have heard that this magazine is not diverse as in most of the models are white... It does kinda make you go..."Ok so only white people are fit?" I too also think it'd be nice if they added a African American model much more or if they added Asian women in it too.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Won't be renewing
    I'm torn between cancelling or waiting until Nov. and not renewing. I've been reading Shape for about 6 months and am disappointed. I agree with all the other folks about the sickly, skinny 20-somethings on the cover and in the pages. How about us 40-something moms? I'm a YMCA member and workout faithfully, but I'm tired of the fluff and junk. I also subscribe to "Muscle and Fitness For Her". MUCH better magazine.

    3-0 out of 5 stars OK but not great
    Although some of the Shape articles are about self-esteem and feeling good about oneself, they have these articles with photos of models who are all extremely thin. I know this is most pleasing to the eye and probably makes the magazine sell, but for some folks, this isn't a great idea. Also, some of the exercise suggestions are very very general, so it's kind of boring sometimes. I have a degree in nutritional sciences, and most of the guidelines are OK, esp when they have registered dietitians on staff. ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Monthly Motivation
    Runner's world is a very traditional magazine with geared towards mostly a middle-aged audience. The authors manage to give the same advice every month and make it sound different. That may be one of the things that makes this magazine so motivational. I keep reading about people who have run every day for the last fifty years or who run in 30 below weather, and I wonder what's keeping me off the roads.

    The Rave Run two page spread photographs are lovely. They each show a runner in a really cool environment with a quote. I have some of them hanging on my wall. I get especially motivated by the one of a man running through the woods when the trees are coated with ice and the ground blanketed with snow. It looks so beautiful, who wouldn't want to go out and run. The ask the expert or Q&A section has the most diverse and informative information from month to month mostly because the questions come from readers and the answers come for a variety of experts. The nutrition section isn't particularly useful. The science seems simplified to the point that it isn't exactly true, and the suggested menu for one of the carbohydrate dinners starts out with 1 cup broiled swordfish along with five or six other things; not really practical in my opinion.

    Runner's World has a nice coverage of racing events past (results) and future (racing calendars), and my hometown of Boulder, CO is mentioned somewhere at least once per issue :). Runner's World encourages everyone to be a winner even if he or she doesn't finish first. It is full of tips for beginners just staring to run and more advance information about training for seasoned amateurs. Some of the information is useful and some is not, but there is enough useful information to make reading worthwhile.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Real Motivator and Educator
    I've been reading Runner's World for about three years now. It seems that whenever my motivation hits an all time low another magazine will end up in my mailbox. After reading half of the magazine I am forced to put on my running shoes and hit the streets.

    There are many educational benefits I receive from these magazines. I enjoy their training tips to help me improve my running time. I enjoy their list of races in the back of issue so I can plan what I want to run next in my geographic area.

    Most importantly, I highly appreciate the safety tips that are included. Running can be very hard on your body, as most of my cross country team learned in high school. This should become standard reading for high school students. I wish my coach had gone through an issue every month with us, highlighting how to run safely while diminishing run times.

    If you run, get this magazine. If you don't run but would like to, visit their educational web page to get an idea how to start and then subcribe to the magazine so, like me, you are reminded to get off your duff and hit the streets.

    I bought the issue because I was told there was an article about beginning runners training for their first half marathon. The article was mentioned on the cover. It turned out to be a fluff piece giving reasons why it was better to run a half marathon than a full one for your first long race. I didn't find a lot more depth. Motivational, some general ideas, but I didn't come away with a lot of technical information.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Your Best Friend
    Sometimes you need a friend to help you out the door and to motivate you to start your running program. This magazine did exactly that for me. Along with its thorough web-site, runnersworld.com, I started a running program that took me from running two minutes at a time to running a 5K (3miles) in twenty-two minutes in only fifteen weeks. Unlike many other magazines, this one does not over burden you with excessive advertisements and random space fillers. All articles are helpful and cover a broad spectrum of practical and entertaining subjects. The best magazine I have ever encountered, you won't be able to put it down!

    4-0 out of 5 stars Education, motivation, how to and information
    Doesn't get much better than this. This magazine knows its focus and cuts right to the chase. Nothing extraneous here, solely about running. Great shoe reviews and good how-to especially for beginners. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Connect with Your Self
    This magazine is very helpful for yoga enthusiasts who are wanting to get into even better relationship with themselves and the ideas of successful, fulfilling yoga practice. It was very impactful for me in achieving the level of concentration I was desiring. Also very good was the video "Goddess Worship" -- for helping to encourage even more self-appreciation. I think that the more you love yourself, the better you will do with yoga.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Extremely useful resource for home yoga practitioners
    Yoga Journal is an excellent resource, particularly for those who practice yoga mainly at home and who are looking to further their practice. Yes, the magazine is somewhat commercialized--there are a ton of ads in addition to articles on various new yoga products and trends--but to me, that's also an indication of the publication's open-mindedness to all styles and types of yoga. This is a magazine which helps make yoga accessible to everyone, whether you prefer an Easternized or Westernized version of practice. Each issue includes a beginner's look at a particular asana plus an in-depth depth focus on a more advanced asana; featured articles include more posture work as well as more general health and wellness topics. A worthwhile subscription or occasional indulgence for your well-being.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful resource
    I've subscribed to YJ off and on over the last few years. Off because I just don't have the time to read everything in it. This is a fabulous magazine no matter where you are in your practice. Every issue has an article on anatomy that is practical and interesting, an in-depth study of a selected asana that is meant for beginners but has useful information for everyone, meditation articles, diet articles. Just an abundance with real respect for the roots of yoga. I have read that some people in the yogic community dislike YJ's commercialization and competitiveness. If these are fair criticisms that is unfortunate since they must not be reading their own publication. Otherwise I can recommend this magazine without reservation. I learn so much about body and spirit in every issue and it continues to inspire and inform my practice. Their website is also excellent and loaded with free content. Namaste.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Contradictory
    Many times I've been referred to an article on the online site for Yoga Journal that speaks to the rapid commercialization of yoga. Generally pleased with some of the articles, I subscribed to the magazine, which turned out to be a bad choice. The magazine, while having a few relevant articles, is no different than any other fashion publlication in the number of advertisements for non-essential paraphernalia. I've been practicing yoga for a year now and have never missed use of these elements, nor have I any interest in adding them at this stage.

    I believe yoga is significantly more than which blocks help with better alignment, and wish that this were a magazine that supported this fact.

    While I understand the value of adequate advertising to the success of a magazine publication, I can't help but wonder if the writers who submitted articles on the commercialisation of yoga have actually had a chance to browse through the magazine.

    Subsequent to my subcription to Yoga Journal, I have made contact with Yoga International and will be reviewing that publication before making another such misguided decision.

    4-0 out of 5 stars a useful resource for every level of yoga practice
    I've been a subscriber for almost 4 years now, and for the most part have found every issue to have at least 2 or 3 articles very useful and interesting. Like so much of the American yoga culture, Yoga Journal the magazine has at times given too much focus to celebrities' involvement or participation in the yoga industry. Sting, Christy Turlington and Donna Karan have all been featured in one way or another. Not only are celebrities more visible, the commercialization of yoga has found its way onto the ad pages of the magazine as well. If you can flip past or ignore these inducements to buy things or seminars, the magazine offers a lot of information on topics related to a yoga practice. Spirituality, meditation, alternative medicine and psychology are also part of the mix, making Yoga Journal worth at least a year's subscription to give you a good base of knowledge with which you can build a lifetime of personal growth within your yoga. ...

    I love this magazine because it is filled with fitness tips, reviews on fad diets, inspirational stories of women who have lost weight, tips on how to lose weight, recipes, exercises to firm up, articles on what foods prevent cancer, and much more! It is a really good magazine if you are trying to lose weight or become a more fit, happier person. It is filled with valuable weight loss tips and the truth about fad diets. I definitely recommend this magazine!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Get ready to Get In Shape!
    If you want to get in shape then Fitness can help.I am an avid outdoor enthusiast and love all the ideas and tips I get for excercise from this magazine.
    It offers nutritional information,diet plans,workout gear and beauty advice plus always has a new excercise routine and tips on staying fit.The success stories are great too.I could send in my photo to be in one of the success stories since I lost over 40 pounds a year ago but I am too shy.(lol)
    All I know is that this magazine reminds me how good it feels to be at my best and I have learned some really great information from it.
    I don't think you will be dissapointed if you really are serious about losing weight.Just remember that nobody can do it for you and that a magazine can only give you the information but you have to do the work yourself!

    2-0 out of 5 stars try something else
    I read this magazine and was not that thrilled. It gets two stars because it has good exercise tips but that is about it. This magazine is for you if you like to starve yourself, diet to excess, and want to try all the miracle weight loss solutions out there. It has advertisements that contradict it. On one page there is an article condemning diet pills. Throughout the magazine there are ads for diet pills. One article talked about diet friendly cookies. Ironically, I have heard warnings about such cookies from my doctor and numerous nutrionists about these cookies, saying that Americans are still getting fat on diet foods like these, and the reason was that they still had sugar in them, which had been substituted for the fat. So people eat those diet cookies and eat whole boxes of them, and gain weight anyway. Yet this magazine failed to present the facts about Diet cookies. Other articles talk about fads: why potatoes are bad one month and the next, why caffeine is bad. And then the next month I read articles about how caffeine is good for you because it reduces cramps from exercise. The magazine is full of gimmick diets. How to loose weight now followed by how come you should not loose weight so quickly. How to temporarily loose weight. How to measure your body mass index. The funny thing is, I took absolutely none of the advice in this magazine. I actually let myself eat real food. I exercised. And to date I have lost 25 pounds and I am within the weight I should be according to the BMI scales in this magazine. This magazine is as bad as a fashion magazine. It has waif thin models throughout, it is as though this magazine is saying, starve yourself, feed yourself false foods, and exercise till you drop. And then you will look like our waif like models! And get your dream job and dream guy! Basically, this magazine feeds on the ideas that society already puts out. Get something else to read.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Poor circulation department
    Not a bad magazine (Shape is better). I have to agree with several other reviewers when they speak of customer service. It took forever to get my first issue and than I got 3 issues (different months) within 2 weeks. I thought my subscription had expired because I hadn't received April's issue which was already on the supermarket shelf. Five days later, it showed up in my mailbox. I'm going to stick with Shape.

    5-0 out of 5 stars An exceedingly pleasant surprise!
    Never one to exercise of my own volition, it takes an extra kick to make me get up and burn calories--much less eat healthily. This magazine presents such a positive, real-world face to well-being that after one issue, I was totally hooked on fitness, in every sense of the word. Their editors and contributors seem like real people with sense and spark, and their advice is on the mark. That first edition I picked up a while back belonged to my sister, and I have continued to snag her copies as much as I can. The investment of a sound self, however, makes me think it's time to buy my own subscription. ... Read more

    I have loved this magazine since the mid-80s when my mom bought it and I would read hers. Since getting married over 12 years ago, this magazine has been my own little weekly, inexpensive treat to myself. The articles are very inspirational, and I love the craft and decorating ideas; health, money and fashion tips; advice; etc. The recipes are GREAT! My husband is a gourmet chef and has used many of the recipes for entertaining! My son likes to try the cute cake ideas. My kids used to like looking for Womans World at grocery checkout counters to find the next issue for me. Thanks to the discount through Amazon, I now will be receiving the next 52 issues right in my mailbox. Read this magazine -- it will brighten your (and your family's) lives! ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars excellent info
    I enjoy my subscription to WLS Lifestyles. I just had my surgery 6/17 and found it very informative pre-op and now post -op. A little more variety would be good and maybe some sample menu ideas for people at different stages. But overall an excellent magazine, I wish it were published monthy.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Addresses all Aspects for Post-Surgery
    I found this magazine to address many of the questions I have had over the past 2 years and review some of the issues post-op patients face (such as dating again). Many of the people who are having or have had WLS are very scared to enter the dating world again and this magazine had an excellent article about the emotional issues which are tied in with the weight.

    The health, nutrition, etc. articles are all 1st rate and there is no commercialism involved. Many books or articles related to WLS are strictly for the pre-op. This magazine is not that way at all.

    I will be renewing my subscription.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Educational & Inspiring!
    This magazine is truly wonderful for all people who are considering having gastric bypass surgery or for those who already have. The articles are very informative, and the magazine is worth reading cover to cover! It is very well worth it.

    I have to say that this is a wonderful source of information. Not only for the post-op patient but the pre-op paient as well. They touch on all aspects of the surgery, diet and mental health. I would reccomend this to anyone who is thinking about having WLS, people who have already had WLS and any spouse or family menber of somone going through this journey.!!!!!

    1-0 out of 5 stars Absolute trash
    Some of their articles have nothing to do with psychology, and those that do require only an extremely basic understanding of it.

    Nearly every article is selling something. And recently, there was a four-page ad made to look exactly like a PT article encouraging low-carb diets, with "advertisement" printed in tiny gray text as the only indication it was an ad. On the back cover was an Atkins ad.

    Much of the advice given in their columns is questionable and reads like it was written by a seventh-grader.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Chock full of ads and useless info:
    This magazine certainly excells in making big money on its advertisements. Inbetween those are some cute type articles that have near zero value to anyone versed in psychology, or even those who aren't. Rather than printing, "Why cant I get a date?" or "Why my husband is a lazy bum" articles, they should try printing something of use, something that could actually prove useful to people interetsed in psychology.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Lots of fluff
    If you enjoy magazines like People, that offer you a glimpse of the latest gossip or the newest thingamajig, then click the order button for Psychology Today.

    As someone who was taking Psych courses as an undergraduate I bought a three-year subscription to PT. As I continued my studies, I began to just toss the magazine away as it would arrive. There is no real substance here that peaked my interest.

    The magazine offers great topics but just didn't seem to follow through. Most of the time I was able to guess what the overall article would be like after reading the title. New information was rarely offered that wasn't 'common knowledge'.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Take a look at the magazine's ads
    I just bought the current issue of this magazine, and it hasn't changed since I looked at an issue a year ago. I know the magazine has expenses to be paid, by getting revenue from its advertisers. But come on:

    Full-page ads:

    for an herbal sexual enhancer,
    for a solution to stay young,
    for increasing one's breast size,
    for a solution to reverse aging,
    for Chinese food cures,
    for sexual technique videos,
    not to mention all the other ads for new-agey type stuff.

    This magazine seems far different than the one I remember from years gone by. This magazine is definitely for the average man on the street with almost a spiritual/mystical inclination, who focuses on a lot of shallow concerns. At least that's what I believe by critiquing who the magazine accepts and uses as advertisers. Focus on stuff that matters. I gave it two stars instead of one, because I will give it some credit for leisurely reading.

    P.S. Give yourself a more professional image.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Psychology/Psychobabble
    I'm a long-time reader of PT--I just read Aaron Knoll's review. I must agree in many respects. Since Daniel Goleman left the editorship of PT, it seems to me to have slid continually away from sound, scientific (insofar as the Art of Psychology can go), in the direction of the trendy, dare I say, Aquarian approach to life. There isn't really a substitute for the magazine, so I'd certainly like to see it become a little less like Soap Opera Digest. (I'm about to renew my subsceiption though!) ... Read more

    This magazine seems most interested in promoting books, etc. that it has a financial interest in--most notably lately the South Beach Diet. Prevention and it's website are now full of misleading banner ads promoting irresponsible dieting techniques and fads. Too bad, because more than ever nowadays we could use a nice little magazine about nutrition, weight loss, exercise and natural remedies that isn't influenced by it's publishing partners and advertisers. Skip this one, and try Self or Health for a more well-rounded look at women's heath needs.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Sad (de)-evolution into a fluff magazine...
    Back in the 1970's my grandmother subscribed to Prevention. At that time, it was a wonderful magazine, filled with informative articles aimed at the "Prevention" of illness and the promotion of wellness (as the founder of Prevention, J.I. Rodale had preached). Articles about the role of vitamins and nutrition were light years ahead of their time. (J.I. can be given a lot of credit for bringing vitamins and supplements to the mainstream). Over the years, and especially after the tragic death of Robert Rodale (J.I.'s son), and the takeover by his wife and daughter, it has unfortunately transformed into a fluffy, tabloid-like "women's magazine" with scantily clad women on the covers, and one- or two-page articles instructing women to get killer abs and burn the fat. I think J.I. Rodale is probably spinning in his grave to see what his descendents have done to butcher this magazine, which bears NO resemblence whatsoever to what it used to be. I flipped through a copy in disgust recently to note, as another reviewer has stated, plenty of ads for DRUGS which really seems to go against the idea of preventing illness in the first place (whereas the old Prevention sang the praises of vitamins and health foods). I don't know why the Rodale family doesn't just scrap the title and call it something else, but alas, they are a major corporation now and I have little hope that this magazine will improve any time soon.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Advertising for Big Pharma.
    This magazine does have a few good health articles. However, the bulk (2/3) is made up of advertising, and most of those ads are for drugs. Now don't get me wrong, I am not against the use of medicine for curing ailments, but when so much of the content is devoted to drug advertising, it makes one wonder how the editors can maintain any semblance of impartiality. If big pharma pays your salary, you're probably going to say what they want you to.

    4-0 out of 5 stars guilty pleasure
    Prevention is more of a guilty pleasure to me than anything else. It's definitely not a magazine that you file away with your beloved books (I do that with Victoria, Real Simple, and O), but you take a little something from each issue. It does contain a lot of excellent information ranging from herbs to emotional health to physical conditions, but the articles are really more than one or two pages long (at the most) and it doesn't take long to read from cover to cover. Regardless, I enjoy it, and usually learn something new and interesting with each issue. I'm not a complete health nut, but I am interested in long term issues and try to look out for myself. Most health magazines (with the exception of Health) are too specific- each article really only applies to a certain group of people, but most of the articles in Prevention apply to the entire readership as a whole. There's very few of us out there not struggling with stress or interested in ways of preventing heart disease or cancer.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Tons of Ads, and Little Content
    This is not my favorite fitness magazine. This is the size of a Reader's Digest, but is packed with ads just like a Beauty Magazine. I find this a bit disappointing considering the breadth of information they tend to cover. They share reasonable and attainable goals, and suggestions for us normal people. The magazine seems to cover a wide age group, with information that is good for both young and old. They do offer recipes, workout suggestions, and much more. The magazine takes little time to read, and seems to only serve as a springboard for more follow up on topics you enjoy. I think this is a better magazine to browse through at the supermarket than to purchase. ... Read more

    Health combines the best of healthy food, basic fitness with a nice peppering of vitamin (supplement) use for an overall healthy lifestyle. You don't have to join a gym to be able to apply the principles that Health shares.

    In general many health magazines seem to focus on glamour and make you wonder what's wrong with you since you can't be a size 2, work out for 3 hours a day, balance a job, family and whatever else life throws your way. The magazine comes with several articles a month that focus on looking good, exercise plans, diet tips, stress relief, and a few that promote good mental health. I like this because its low key and sensible. This magazine isn't set out to change your life, but enhance what you have and show you a few new ideas. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars A mixed bag
    I thought some readers might benefit from the perspective of a beginner/intermediate weight trainer. I use this magazine for little more than getting ideas for new exercises so that my routine doesn't get stale. In that sense, Muscle and Fitness is a treasure trove of information on new and interesting ways to work out. Some of the routines are inappropriate for beginners or even intermediate lifters, but the principles remain the same. There is a great emphasis on proper form and a general disapproval of lifting heavier weights than you are capable. Exercises are well described with examples of proper form and thorough explanations provided by professionals. As a previous reviewer said, these professionals sometimes contradict one another, but as in any profession, opinions differ and all that can be done is to present the information and allow the reader to judge what is best for them.

    Having said that, there is bad with the good. There are an enourmous number of multi-page ads for supplements, often posing as articles. Some of these are of dubious benefit and often make outrageous claims. 90% of these are useless for the general user (I have no interest in spending outrageous amounts of money to build muscle while I sleep) though I imagine a professional would be interested in anything that might help them gain a slight competitive edge. In my opinion there are too many ads which tend to distract from genuine articles. There is also great emphasis on building mass and losing fat - if you are thinking about subscribing to this magazine you should be far more concerned about the "muscle" aspect than the "fitness".

    So, in conclusion, there is some good and some bad. You may be better off just buying two or three of these magazines if you are only looking for ideas to add variety to your workouts. After a while the articles start to repeat themselves.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Muscle and fitness
    I've subscribed several years but now want something different. Because I work for a living and can't plan 6 meals a day and hours in the gym like these guys/gals do-I want a fitness magazine tailored to the working man, not the gym guy without a job guy. Also, it seems like a lot of this magazine is advertising for protein powders and supplements.
    If you don't have a job, plan on spending your daily routines around the gym so you can get big and grotesque like these fitness models, then this is the magazine for you.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Rip-Off!
    I'm referring to the U.K version of this magazine but my sentiments are the same as that written by most of the other reviewers. This mag has deteriorated so much over the last few years. I recent;y discouraged my son from reading this magazine as it almost resembled a soft porn mag! Also, if you were to follow the routines in this magazine, you will just end up overtrained and frustrated with your lack of results. Why? the rotuines listed here only work if you have 6 days a week and two hours a day to train. and it also requires that you live on supplements! Most of the 'champs' feautured in this magazine are just paid to say they use the supplements. in reality they are all surgically enhanced and are on large amounts of anabolic hormones. There is no way the routines in this mag will work for typical people. please look elsewhere!

    Since the recent decline of Men's Fitness, there really isnt't a reliable, realistic montly men's workout magazine. I picked up a copy of Muscle and Fitness, just for some workout tips and ideas, as I remembered when I read the magazine in the 80's that it was quite good.
    Now it's quite full of ads.
    From the same 4 or 5 companies.
    As an experiment I ripped out every page in the the magazine that had ads on both sides. I ended up ripping out 90 pages.
    90 pages!
    Out of a magazine with 266 pages.
    A full one third of this magazine is ads that fool people into taking crappy, expensive supplements so that they will end up looking like Ahnold (who has joined the magazine as Executive Editor).
    You'd be better off by picking up one book for workout (like Body Sculping For Men or Women), one book for nutrition (like Eat to Live by Fuhrman) and save your money and your time.
    You get a great looking body by eating healthy and working out regularly, not by gulping down supplements popping pills.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Sham advice!!
    Hi, i've been browsing this magazine on and off for a number of years now and all i can say is this magaizine is designed to make a quick commercial killing. I mean i saw an article back in 97 i think which said- Big arms- the surest way to get them. but if u pick up a current issue you will see it rehashed again! This is fairly typical for almost all the articles. Plus 75% of the magazine is full of ads for useless supplements mostly from the publisher of the mag. Plus any reasonably intelligent person knows that all the'champs' feautured in this mag are gentic freaks who would grow on any routine and are loaded with every steroid known. but this is never stated anywhere in the magazine. plus these guys are termed healthy, this is bull as almost all these 'champs' have severe health problems and some of them have died recently due to severe drug abuse. bottom line is this, there is very little to be gained from this magazine from a muscle building point of view! In all fairness they do have good articles about improving you sex life and some decent recipes but you don't have to read this mag for that now do you?
    some reviewers have recommended books by stuart mcRobert which i strongly endorse if you are serious about building size and strength safely and sensibly. ... Read more
