Magazine Tells Old Women: Eat White Bread, Cake & Sugar…to Lose Weight

Prevention magazine is encouraging its readers to eat such healthy staples as white bread, chocolate cake, pizza, and sugar.   The result, of course, will be “almost effortless weight loss.”  From a recent email blast:

The magazine, which bills itself as “a healthy lifestyle” publication that provides “family health and wellness information,” has 3 million readers.  Most are older women:

This publication targets male and female readers ages 35 and over. Most of the readers are female (83.6%) and the median age is 52.9 years, with 51.6% falling between the ages 25 and 54.. The median household income is $54,512. More than have (61.6%) have attended some college, with 17.5% graduating. Most (62.8%) are married and 82.5% own their own homes.

What do you think?   Should we be encouraging elderly women to hoarf down white bread, cake and sugar?

    Hey! What is this “OLDER” women stuff? From MY perspective, a gal in her 50’s is still A YOUNG CHICK!

    Wow…not something I would try. Especially since the elimination of such foodstuffs from my diet have allowed significant reduction of my diabetes medication.

    Good luck to anyone who wants to eat that stuff,
