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

From Amazon.com

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.
Nothing fancy, just real life.

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.

3-0 out of 5 stars Only one issue's experience
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 Fitness magazine
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

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.

1-0 out of 5 stars Shell Of It's Former Self
I wrote a glowing review of this magazine a while back before they changed the content. I felt the need write another review, so no one would be misled by the earlier one, thinking this was the same magazine.

The magazine has recently been revamped and is shallow beyond words. It's now nothing more than the usual glamour magazine targeted toward women with a fluff article or two on alternative healing thrown in for appearances sake only. After years of getting a magazine with indepth and very informative articles on alternative medicine, I routinely throw this new model in the garbage the moment it arrives at my home.

Don't waste your time or money. I won't be renewing my subscription.

1-0 out of 5 stars Misleading title- nothing "Natural" about it
This magazine title should be changed. It is no longer "Natural Health". The revamped magazine includes sections on makeup, home decorating, articles on weight loss and healthier diets (not natural diets). It has become very mainstream. This magazine reminds me of Glamour or Woman's Day. Another complaint I have aside from the fluff content is there are more ads than content, that is not an exaggeration. Count them. You will find over 50% of the pages are ads.

Here's an example: this month (MAY 2004) had an article about jet lag and one of the ways to lesson the lag was "sleeping pills/waking pills". This may help jetlag, but it's not "natural health" and an alternative should be listed, although professionals may recommend pills.

Another complaint, is every month there is an article focusing on weight loss. Sounds like a typical mainstream magazine, although it's not as good as the mainstream magazines. I do not recommend this magazine if you are actually looking for info on "Natural Health".

1-0 out of 5 stars Fluff Fluff Fluff
I agree with the other reviewers. I was so disappointed when this magazine was re-vamped. It is all fluff,fluff, fluff now and in the past it offered so much information centering around holistic and organic remedies. The title really is a mis-representation of it's contents now. You might as well buy any other number of shallow women's magazines for the same type of content. I was glad to find these reviews that verified my feelings on the new content because I thought it was just me. And as the other reviewer said, the magazine doesn't have a "letter to the editor" section anymore because if it did I'm sure it would get an earful from all it's (previous)loyal readers. I'm cancelling my subscription and going with Prevention or something like that.

1-0 out of 5 stars We live in a capitalistic society
Natural Health must have been changed (mainstreamed) to attract more readers and bring in more money. Unfortunately for the original NH reader, and for the businesspeople at American Media, Inc., it hasn't accomplished what it set out to do. Too late now.

1-0 out of 5 stars A once great magazine is now a superficial one
I am so glad I came to Amazon to express how I feel about the changes in Natural Health. Literally, there was no way to express myself now that in the new Natural Health, there are no longer "letters to the editor" and try as I might, I could NOT find ANYONE to write to to speak of my displeasure.
This used to be a truly alternative magazine that had vegan recipes, and intelligent meaningful articles, real alternative health advice and in depth articles about spirituality. No longer. Now it has ads for grotesque knee-high leather boots, how to cook a turkey, expensive Madison avenue fashion, how eating ice cream is good for you(?), and with Atkins ads now on the back pages. The last issue, I couldn't believe my eyes, it was about taking pharmaceuticals when you are healthy to prevent disease in later life (give me a break).
The owners have totally forsaken those of us who truly live a simple and cruelty-free lifestyle, eat a plant-based diet, live life without drugs and are truly interested real spirituality.
Thanks to all of you who wrote similiar reviews...it is so nice to see I wasn't the only one who noticed these changes. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for Spanish students
I subscribed to this magazine because I'm an Intermediate Spanish student. To my disappointment, the magazine is mostly English with only some paragraphs here and there in Spanish. Lots and lots of advertising which is mostly in Spanish.

2-0 out of 5 stars Si esta buscando una revista bilingue, no gaste su dinero
Esta es una nota para todas que si hablan espanol y quieren comprar "Latina" porque segun es una revista bilingue. Yo la he comprado de vez en cuando por los ultimos dos anos y cada vez me quede disilusionada con la calidad de la traduccion en espanol. Yo se que hay muchos latinos que estan aqui que prefieren una revista en ingles, pero cuando la publicacion se llama "Latina", pues, ustedes me entienden. Los articulos son bien largos y las traducciones son en letras chiquititas, abajo, y como la mitad del tamano del articulo original.

3-0 out of 5 stars Try it!
Latina is a great, easy-to-read magazine that attempts to incorporate everything an 18 to 30 something year old Latina would care about. It scratches the surface of fashion, beauty, politics, and culture. The articles are informative, but unfortunately not too in-depth. However, it's just about the only magazine out there that addresses make-up for the Latina skin tone, clothes for the Latina body, and Latino political, health and cultural issues...so give it a try!

2-0 out of 5 stars A Weak Read - Filled with Ads and Stereotypes
I like the idea of a bilingual magazine, but LATINA's self-involved "spanglish" can be juvenile and borders on offensive at times. Although attempting to bridge the gap between the two languages that dominate US Hispanic society, it fails to make a connection in either one.

I've subscribed for a year and although I enjoy some of the articles and beauty tips as much as the next woman, I feel the magazine reads like a "poor-chica's" Nancy Drew mystery, with all its "buy-it-for-less" ads strategically inserted in the actual articles. That smacks of editorial sell out and lack of integrity. Plus, most of the articles seem to be written for 18-22 year olds. I don't know about you, but I grew up a long time ago!

Besides - Latinas (and all Latinos for that matter) have much more on their minds than the latest trends in mascara, runway fashion or shampoo! The magazine, though occassionally interesting, makes us appear two-dimensional, reinforcing negative images with its made-up language and limited editorial focus. It's as if LATINA is written for just one kind of Hispanic woman - a "Nuyorkina teen" with nothing on her mind except boys, sex and cosmetics!

For a much better read about Latinos in the US and our many contributions to the arts, culture and language of America, Hispanics would do far better to read Selecciones, Cristina or People en Español. At least those magazine offer more depth, news-worthiness, and expertise on fashion, beauty and the arts. Plus, reading in spanish means nothing if real MEANING is lost in translation - something LATINA succeeds at. With made up words and VERY loose use of both languages the magazine doesn't connect with either culture or present a unifying identity. Instead it often reinforces the finger-snappin'-salsa-lovin'-big-hipped vision of women of color. That's not something Latinas need these days - we can read AND think AND shop AND learn AND work in two languages - why do we feel we have to choose one or the other? Latina seems to think we must or - GOD forbid - we'll miss out on the latest trends for Fall Fashion! Que pena!

Sad thing is...advertisers seem to love it for all the wrong reasons (probably because they can read the english and dismiss the spanish.) That's too bad - our language should not be wrapped up in a neat package like LATINA as that undermines our common Hispanic identity. Instead, our bond of language should be celebrated and encouraged among Latino youth (the very target LATINA goes after.) We acculturate, not assimilate. We must incorporate the many worlds of Hispanic America (Spaniards and Boricuas, Cubanos and Argentinas, Mexicanas, Colombianas y Peruanos, etc.)through our beautiful language rather than kow-towing to advertisers and companies who dismiss us because they cannot read our words. That means they prefer we read THEIRs and at least for this reader, I CHOOSE to do both regardless of whether or not advertisers like it. Reading "en español" sets me apart and gives me an edge, plus it gives me a unique perspective I never get in LATINA.

Celebrate our culture AND our language - and maintain it for generations to come --- a good magazine like People Español or Vanidades can help you do that. A poor product like LATINA just undermines our own future.

5-0 out of 5 stars great find
I live in Europe and my sister sent me a copy of Latina that she received from a friend. I enjoyed it so much I subscribed.
I like the the diversity of latin women represented because each latin country has its own culture. I like the realistic make-up and fashion ideas that are not found in typical anglo magazines for Latin women. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars kiM Piper
My daughter, Kim Piper wrote an article in MAMMS in the early part of 2000. She was featured in the magazine along with her children in New Orleans, La. She had Breast Cancer;she died June 16,2000. I read her article, and I had the opportunity to tell her that it was a very good article.She did not like the way she looked due to the weight gain, from sterods , the loss of hear and whatever change of features the toxic drugs did to wretch her body. I have been unable to find this magazine, nor did I want to locae t until now, so, I am asking for your assistance in finding the March, April or May issue the year 2000. ... Read more
