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. ...

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. ...

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.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very informative
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

1-0 out of 5 stars Main focus seems to be selling diet books
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

5-0 out of 5 stars Overall Health 'A+'
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. I read an article on garlic in Health recently, it discussed the healthy properties, myth and fact, as well as cooking suggestions. A great overall magazine for healthy living!

5-0 out of 5 stars Best health Magazine I Have found
I have subscribed to various magazines for years, and paid pretty prices too, but this modestly priced magazine is one of my favorites. It really has a variety of articles, fact based, no nonsense. I love the exercise part, I teach the yoga type exercises to my satff at work. This puts "self" to shame. Check it out for yourself . I give it as a christmas gift to my friends.

1-0 out of 5 stars Vapid
A really bad slick, vapid agazine, with no real health info or info of any kind. Like those little health sidebars in the more inocuous women's magazines, expanded into a whole publication of its own.

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

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine, Great Information
After subscribing to Natural Health for years, the magazine recently "went to the dogs". I now subscribe to Alternative Medicine instead and it is like Natural Health USED to be. I love it. The information is accurate and the topics are all very interesting.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Interesting "ALTERNATIVE MAGAZINE"
I ordered this magazine from Amazon.com a few months ago. I got my first issue and it is loaded with useful information on healing, relaxation, supplements, herbs, healthy living on a variety of subjects. Plus it lists practitioners of alternative medicine listed by state, then local area, person's name, specialty, address so you can get in touch with people who are experts in treating you using various alternative medicines.

5-0 out of 5 stars Get this magazine!
Simply put, the best there is.

This magazine has been in the forefront of getting the word out on alternative treatments as well as informing on current toxic therapies. They've been saying for years that mammograms do more harm than good. Finally, the mainstream media catches up with them.

I've read this magazine since 1995, when it was founded. The information I have garnered has been invaluable. I never throw away a single issue.

Their books are the best on the market. I especially appreciate their efforts to inform people about the hazards of current cancer "treatments". ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Essential Resource for Healthier Living!
Alternative Medicine does a terrific job of explaining the benefits and uses of complementary (alternative) therapies -- which have been used for centuries, throughout the world. The articles are thoroughly researched and unbiased. You'll learn how to build your body's resistance against cancers, allergies, and auto-immune diseases - and what the true causes of these illnesses are. It also provides very helpful information for parents regarding their children's health, including autism and other learning disabilities. It also includes interviews and biographies on homeopaths and other complementary medical practitioners and the successes they have had with their patients. It's truly a practical guide for anyone open to exploring how to get healthier and stay that way without toxic side effects. You'll learn something new in every issue - I know I do.

5-0 out of 5 stars A lively and informative magazine
Someone brought this into work and everyone in the office was reading it and just loving it. Several people copied the recipes especially for the desserts. I'm not low carbing full time yet but I found this really inspiring and think I will try to do the whole LC diet this weekend. I also subscribed because I know I will need the ongoing motivation. It's nice to have something fun and interesting that isn't all preachy.

2-0 out of 5 stars Confusing and shallow
I was very disappointed by my first issue of Low Carb Energy. I found the layout confusing (hard to see where ads started and content began) and the content very superficial - more sound bites than in depth articles.The magazine was mostly ads for low carb junk food and low carb recipes, which I have plenty of in my cookbook library. I'm probably going to cancel.

5-0 out of 5 stars AWESOME
This magazine is awesome! It is fun, and light and also very informative - If you are a low carber you CANNOT miss out on this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Magazine!
I really liked this magazine. It answered many questions I had as well and opened my eyes to information I never knew. It is nice to finally have a comprehensive source of information that I can turn too! I just wish it was monthly, but I will wait patiently!

(BTW, my husband loved the cigar article. It gave him the "OK" to do something I am not a fan of...all in the name of low-carb!)

4-0 out of 5 stars Interesting Information You'll Actually Use
I think some of these reviewers are missing the point. Organic Style isn't a gardening magazine -- which is why I like it. It's more of a lifestyle guide to living better, feeling better and looking better. I'm not a vegetarian or a rabid organic advocate -- just an ordinary suburban mom looking for ideas for eating healthier, simplifying things around the house and putting together an outfit that doesn't make me look ridiculous. I found this magazine has great ideas that I actually use (unlike other magazines I get where they are filled with ideas suitable only for a movie star lifestyle or people with a personal chef). For example, they recently recomended an organic fruit and cereal bar my kids love -- and it's so much better for them. I can use that a lot more than spying the $2,000 baby booties Elizabeth Hurley bought. So if you're looking for a guide to make small changes that will make your life healthier, this magazine is a good place to start.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Magazine for the Organic Lifestyle
If you love yoga and find yourself wandering in the organic product section of your local grocery store, then this magazine might interest you. If not for the amusing articles about learning ujjayi breathing; for all the information on food, beauty products and lifestyle choices included for the organically aware.

In the June 2004 issue they featured an interesting website that shows you how toxic your zip code is. I was relieved to find that I had moved to an area with good air quality even though I keep an air purifier running constantly. They say the air inside your home can be more toxic than the air outside.

This magazine makes you more aware of all the resources you really do have to enhance your life and the advertising is at least encouraging instead of annoying. I am now lusting after a Dyson vacuum, thinking about trying out some new Wai Lana Yoga workout videos and dreaming about buying all the natural skin care products featured throughout the magazine.

Dr. Tieraona answers questions in a living well section. Although, I was wondering why she didn't recommend a product like Emer'gen-C "Lite" to the person asking about their afternoon slump.

"Create a Butterfly Garden" will be an article to clip and save for future gardening projects. It may be time to buy some purple coneflowers. You can also read about nontoxic fertilizers and pesticides.

Veronique Vienne has an article in the June 2004 issue about entertaining even if you're shy or broke. She recommends things like cooking with butter and fragrant herbs and lighting honeysuckle candles. Just reading about her adventures made me hungry. There also seem to be pages of decorating tips, sports features and information on lifestyle choices for families. This magazine promotes healthy life choices like balancing family and work or finding healthy food on the go. There "How to Pack a Picnic" gave me some great ideas for a summer picnic. Now if only I could escape into Vincent Van Gogh's painting "Landscape at St. Remy."

If you enjoy using organic ingredients, you will find a few recipes and the Stuffed Summer Squash is a recipe I'll try as soon as I can find some small yellow summer squash. There were tips on how to save money on Organic foods, which yes are slightly more expensive in general. Although, you might notice you spend less money on doctor visits or other areas of your life because healthy choices do make you feel much more healthy over time.

While this magazine is all about Organic, it is not Vegetarian focused. You will still find recipes for Crispy Chicken Drumettes to go along with your String Bean and Fennel Salad. They had a taste test for organic cookies and I have to agree the Country Choice Organic Sandwich Cremes are better than an Oreo cookie.

Overall, I found this magazine to be highly enjoyable to read in the bath or out on the deck. If you have just returned from planting flowers by the light of the moon, you might enjoy reading this magazine while soaking in an Aura Cacia Purify Aromatherapy Mineral Bath scented with the fragrance of flowers and spicy wood.

I've asked my husband for a subscription for my birthday because I thought this was a great way to remind myself to eat healthy and exercise regularly. Organic Style not only makes you more aware of your lifestyle choices, it presents some interesting options. You can now even buy natural wheat litter for your cat
that is safe and non-toxic for kittens. I finally found some at Petsmart and plan to clip the dollar coupon. I'm dreaming of finding a new kitten.

4-0 out of 5 stars For the way we really are
As a mother, wife, daughter and also balancing work, I want to do the best I can. In addition, I want to make a difference in this world. I care about the environment as well, and I want some help in how to do it. Since I'm new at it, but also want convenience and style, Organic Style is my magazine to tell me how. I love sections on how to live greener (e.g. how to grow your lawn organically, what washing machines to pick, laundry detergents) and food that is healthier but not sacrificing taste. I love to dream with the retreats and vacations the magazine features. It also portrays different women in all shapes, sizes and ages being unique and individual. I think this magazine is a breath of fresh air. It is exactly what I was looking for: a balance between who I am and who I want to become.

1-0 out of 5 stars Organic Pain
The first issue of Organic Style I ever had the misfortune of reading contained an article about a woman's emotional journey as she searched for the right hair color for herself under the "soul" category of the magazine. And that, is but a taste of the completely absurd articles this magazine chooses to print.
Everytime I pick up the magazine (and now that's only when other reading material is unavailable) I feel annoyed. This is the one magazine I have found where not even a page interests me. A sample of what is included: the "green Buzz" in which we find out which celebrities have bought some eco-friendly product, like organic corn or something. Next there are all kinds of "organic beauty products". So if your the kind of person who's interested in organic wild mint muscle soothers, you might like this magazine. Next, there's a section on how to decorate your house in an organic way, which, apparetnly includes shelling out hundreds of dollars, or maybe a pillow. And then there's a section on, well, in the latest issue (July/ August)on how to let your natural beauty shine through. So eat lots of spinach salad and embrace your stress!. Then, as, in most magazines, there's a recipe section full or yes, organic recipes. But the winner for most annoying section of all has to go to "Soul." I have not yet read an article that has been meaningful, or has not made me cringe.
So, if this is what you're looking for, then Organic Style is for you. However, I would strongly suggest you stay away from this.... thing. If you really want to live in an "Organic way" I'd suggest you start a vegetable garden, and stay away from chemicles and pesticides. This magazine will not get you anywhere.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not much there there
The first time I read Organic Style, there was an entire "story" dedicated to organic fiber clothing. I thought it was expensive, but a stylish twist on the typical burlap sack style of earth-conscious dress. That was almost a year ago, and since then I've seen the magazine shift towards hippie resort fashion, or "natural" style, with a heavy emphasis on high cost, celebrity desert dwellings, and fancy "natural" products. I half expected to see a "do" and "don't " page! "Organic" as a definition has come to mean something very specific, about the lack of pesticides or renewable resource-type living. I know I'll be waiting my whole life to see a fashion/lifestyle magazine that doesn't use bleached cotton and sweatshop labor, so I'm not going to be too idealistic. Organic Style IS pretty, but these days there is not much there, there. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Only 6 issues a year?!
I read every exercise and fitness magazine I can get my hands on. I train 6 days a week and am always looking for new recipes and ways to spice up my workouts. I DO LIKE this magazine. It has a lot of little tips and news bites that make it an easy and informative read.
...But, I do not think it packs enough info to make it worth the price. At only 6 issues a year it is far more expensive then Oxygen or even Hers M&F. And some of the models look skinny and untoned. The BEST fitness magazine out there is Oxygen with Hers M&F being second. Both are full of great tips and the models are real fitness competitors. Check out Oxygen before you do anything.

5-0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading Every Page
I've been an "off again/on again" athlete for years and now, at 45 years old, needed this magazine to re-inspire me to get out there and get back in shape! It's format is so easy to read, you can spend 30 seconds or 30 minutes and still feel like you've just hit on something new/different/great! I would highly recommend this magazine...

5-0 out of 5 stars Definitely a "get up and exercise" magazine!
My husband and I were in a Barnes and Noble one friday night approx..9pm and I picked up this magazine..I could not believe how motivating a magazine can be. From its simple articles on how "average women" took control of themselves and got "fit"..not just lost weight. You will find motivational "success stories", exercise tips, weight training tips, and delicious recipes. To say how motivated I was I went home and tried out a workout I found for my elliptical...and it was a GREAT workout, can't wait to do it again today! Please reward YOURSELF and GET THE MAGAZINE..it is worth of every second READING :o) ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars This is a MISTAKE
This magazine referred my wife to a COLLECTION AGENCY ! For a $12 subscription!This is absolutely ridiculous. As a husband, I am very supportive of purchasing anything my wife thinks is educational for hery pregnancy.However, trying to settle your bill with this company is absurd. Have you tried to find an 800 # on their website to reach someone lately? I'm also curious as to why they bill for an entire year when pregnancy lasts nine months? Of all of the things to take care of during pregnancy, I can tell you that dealing with a collection agency for a $12 bill is not at the top of anybody's list.

4-0 out of 5 stars A Great Mag for New and Old Moms alike
If you like Shape mag, then you will thoroughly enjoy Fit Pregnancy.I have had a great experience with them.The inital issue may take a few weeks, but that's just their release cycle.The magazine has great articles and the fashion ranges from high end to bargain shoppers.I don't know but perhaps some of the long delay for the other reviewer could have been going through a third party to subscribe (like Amazon).I went to their website and subscribed.I still subscribe even though I'm not pregnant right now.

1-0 out of 5 stars Don't subscribe - you'll be sorry!
I don't know what happened to all the other reviews of this magazine - hmmmm, they're all gone now.But I'll tell you, they were all pretty bad.If you subscribe to this magazine, expect problems that will include a long-delayed start and missing issues that will NOT be resolved when you contact customer service. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Running Times is the runner's best resource
I am writing because I believe the most recent review of Running Times paints an inaccurate picture of the magazine. From my perspective, Running Times is a much better resource than Runner's World for serious runners, serious athletes, AND the rest of us who are serious ABOUT our running.

My experiences with Runner's World make me think about the thousands of people who "run" road races all across the United States. I put run in quotes because there are plenty of people who run races to finish the race, very noble goal. Runner's World provides quick suggestions for making longer races interesting (i.e. take a camera on a secenic race course and take some pictures). Great idea to get people out for races, but not a good idea for someone who wants to improve their race time. Gallowalking will get you to the finishline, but if you have been training appropriately, it will not drop your race times.

My experiences with Running Times tend to make me think of those people who want to drop a minute from their 5k PR. Whether you are running 21 minute 5k's or running 16 minute 5k's, Running Times will provide runners who are interested in improving their running with the information they need to improve. Pete Pfitzinger in particular brings an incredible wealth of scientific and real-world training and racing knowledge to each issue of the magazine.

I highly recommend Running Times to anyone who is serious ABOUT their running.

2-0 out of 5 stars I prefer Runner's World
As I write this review, there are only two reviews of Running Times right now and I feel like I need to add my two cents. A big reason I subscribed to Running Times was based on these two positive reviews.

I subscribed to Runner's World before I had ever heard of Running Times. I wanted even more motivation to get out there and run distance, so I subscribed to both. Running Times concentrates too much on athlete runners and "destination spots" to run... like Hawaii or the Rocky Mountains, places that have beautiful pictures but are of no interest to me and my running. Furthermore, Running Times concentrates on individual races and results with more detail than I care for. I really don't need a one-page article on the Chicago marathon. I find the occasional article about eating better or training for a better 5k/10k/marathon in Running Times, but those articles are pretty sparse.

I grab an issue of Runner's World and it's the complete opposite. I get information about training, eating, injury prevention, stretching, etc. It has the same kind of race calendar as Running Times for the 5 and 10k's that I want to run. It's information that I can use as a runner. If you'd rather get information about how to improve YOUR running and not stories about running, stick with Runner's World.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great advise and prevention magazine
Running Times is one of two running magazines we subscribe to. It offers some valuable and well tested advise for the novice and well as the seasoned runner, on diet and injury prevention and care after the fact. I recommend it to anyone seriously interested in running.

5-0 out of 5 stars For the serious runner on any level
"Running Times" is for runners who compete either against others, or who simply have a great desire to run well.

Well written, and cleanly organized, you'll read about the training methods of top runners, and the top techniques for meeting a specfic goal.

Marathoners and 5Kers will find that there is a lot to be learned from each other's distance, and they'll have the chance here.

For stats junkies, the people who love to read who won the Juniper Days 5K in Upper Nowhere City... oh, the feast you will have! As a stats junkie myself, I thumb through the times quickly before devouring every detail.

I fully recommend this magazine.

5-0 out of 5 stars A very interesting and useful magazine!
I am fascinated by herbs and the use of medicinal plants to prevent and treat diseases and this magazine is my favorite. It has in depth articles which discuss the uses of specific herbs but also includes articles on general health topics. It has a readable format and also beautiful photography. It would appeal to serious students of herbology as well as those who have only casual interest in natural health topics.

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Yoga Magazine I've seen!!!
I think that Yoga International is, hands down, the best magazine on this topic. It has interesting, well written articles on all aspects of yoga (philosophy,life style, meditation, sanskrit chants, etc.) and beautiful photographs. I read it cover to cover as soon as it comes. In addition, the magazine is supplemented by its website where I've been able to actually hear the pronounciation of sanskrit chants.

To give you a flavor of the magazine, a recent issue (May 2003) included the following articles: Awakening to the Gayatri Mantra; Postures to Activate the Lymph System for Breast Care; Awakening Spirit, A Joyful Practice: Cultivating the Moment; Really Relaxing, The Yoga Sutra: Four Pillars of Concentration, Descendants of Gods (by Huston Smith), and Everyday Ayurveda. In addition, there was a wonderful editorial offering a alternate perspective on viewing the world in these times when many people are viewing everything through a lens of fear. ... Read more
