You Better Shape Up
September's issue of Shape magazine beckons us with the following headline: "The #1 Weight-Loss Secret--Do This & You Will Drop Pounds."
A quick visit to page 232 of the monthly reveals the treasured secret, which likely enticed thousands of readers.
But, I'm not going to share, because you really should by the magazine.
Just kidding. I'm not going to share, because to do so would be to support and promote our societal obsession with weight loss, which clearly doesn't fall under my mission statement.
Alright, fine, I'll tell you, but only because I laughed out loud when I opened to 232. Here, a two-page spread reveals--"The secret to Weight Loss? Calories" followed by the statement, "The truth is, all diets boil down to a simple formula--eating fewer calories than you burn."
This is it, ladies, groundbreaking journalism at its finest. Make sure you pick up your copy today.
