Women’s Health Magazine Gets Rid of Phrases Like ‘Bikini Body’ for 2016
There's nothing wrong with trying to get healthy for the New Year, but some words and phrases screaming from magazine covers really don't help. Well, Women's Health Magazine wants to change that.
You've probably noticed it waiting in line at the convenience store, or while checking out at a grocery store - magazine covers with big bold print, 'Lose 10 Pounds Fast,' or 'Easy Workouts For That Perfect Bikini Body.'
If you're trying to lose weight and get healthy or if you're feeling self-conscious, seeing things like this doesn't help. Well, the Editor-in-Chief for Women's Health Magazine Amy Keller Laird, understands this struggle and vows to make a change. According to a letter she wrote in Women's Health Magazine,
...You told us you don’t love the words shrink and diet, and we’re happy to say we kicked those to the cover curb ourselves over the past year. But we’re still using two other phrases—“Bikini Body” and “Drop Two Sizes”—that you want retired. Since our goal is always to pump you up, and never to make you feel bad, here’s our pledge: They’re gone. They’ll no longer appear on Women’s Health covers...
Women's Health Magazine is taking a step forward when it comes to promoting healthy body image, while helping its readers get healthier and feel better about themselves.
