As women, I'm sure we've all seen these headlines more than we'd care to admit:

"Flat Abs Fast!"

"Eat this and burn more fat!"

"Drop Two Sizes: Boost your metabolism and see results -- fast!"

"Lose 5lbs in 5 days!"

I've decided I simply cannot deal with this baloney anymore, so I canceled all of my girly-mag subscriptions. I've wanted to do this for quite some time, but there was always one helpful article, snippet or factoid that kept me subscribing. I've always taken the sensationalist headlines that promise ridiculous and impossible things with a grain of salt. However, I recently realized that they just propagate the stupid concept that weight loss should be quick and easy, that lifting pink 1-lb dumbbells are going to produce the results you want and that eating 1500 kCal a day is a "perfect flat belly day."

 Do you subscribe to any magazines? Which ones and have you ever thought about canceling them?
