Self-care Sunday: 5 Magazines That Wont Make You Feel Bad About Yourself

Self-care Sunday: 5 Magazines That Wont Make You Feel Bad About Yourself

Image via Bjarte Kvinge Tvedt/freeimages.com While magazines can be fun to read, it can be hard to find a magazine that doesnt make us feel bad about ourselves. Many focus on quick-fix diets or other extreme behaviors, rather than promoting overall well-being. Reading them can make you feel like your body is something to be improved upon rather than something to be enjoyed. Covers feature models who dont represent the many shapes and sizes women come in. But things are changing. Womens Health, the magazine I wrote Body Clock Diet for, is leading this cause with their anti-drop 2 sizes campaign, which I recently wrote about . Other womens sites and magazines have made it their goal not to be diet and exercise-obsessed, with stories that appeal to a range of womens interests. Here are a few you can feel good about reading: Real Simple is devoted to helping you find easy solutions for lifes challenges. The magazines Amazon description sums it up: With Real Simple, youll find articles about reducing stress, simple makeup and hair techniques that look fantastic, easy recipes, organization ideas, uncluttered dcor, and ways to remove burdens from your life while retaining all its fullness. Sample articles include 5 Ways to Make Mornings More Manageable, A Month of Easy Dinners, and How to Pull Off a Career Pivot. On the cover, you might find pictures of yummy looking food you can easily prepare, chic fashion accessories to help you pull off a streamlined look, or a picture of a pretty beauty product. Real Simple is about helping you manage life and not about reaching unrealistic or unhealthy body standards/expectations. Food has been described in the magazine as delicious or something you will love and not something to restrict or avoid. Its not only Real Simple, but a Real S Continue reading >>

Diabetes Magazines

The Internet is such a vast and fast way to keep up with diabetes developments that we might be tempted to ignore traditional media. That would be our loss, because, in particular, magazines about diabetes offer a wide range of news and views. While the Internet has a lot more Web sites and mailing lists about diabetes that there are magazines and journals in print, printed periodicals about diabetes contain a huge number of articles. In fact, there are probably many more such publications than most of us would imagine, especially when we include all the newsletters that are essentially the same as magazines. The top 3 magazines. In 1999, Michael Reynolds, the general manager of the now defunct DiabetesWebSite.com, asked me to compile the first comprehensive directory of these publications. Including those that have subsequently appeared, I have found a total of 65. Of these, 34 are journals written primarily for a professional audience. That leaves 31 magazines written for people with diabetes, of which five are published in other countries and 26 in the United States. I doubt if anybody subscribes to all 26 of these magazines. I know that I have read no more than 22 of them myself. In fact, few of these publications are worth the time even of people like me who want to know everything new in the field. If you diligently looked, you could find articles that I wrote in nine of these magazines. The three with the biggest circulations are: Diabetes Self-Management comes across as being much more serious—a prim and proper old lady compared with the other top two magazines. It also seems to completely ignore the online diabetes community and is the only one of the top magazines that hasn’t published any of my articles. Published bimonthly by R.A. Rapaport Publishing Inc Continue reading >>

Peter Banks: Publisher, Diabetes Forecast

Peter Banks: Publisher, Diabetes Forecast

By FOLIO: Magazine Staff :: March 29, 2006 Hes made a members-only association publication a pass-along phenomenon. In an industry where association publications are sometimes considered a garden-variety membership benefit, Peter Banks has made Diabetes Forecast a must-read among the millions of Americans affected by the disease. With a members-only subscription policy, and a circulation of over 460,000, the magazine has a readership of upwards of 4 million. According to Banks, in the fall of 2005, a syndicated research study showed the total readership to be ten times the circulation number, which he believes is a direct result of how hungry people are for knowledge. "People are so desperate for information about this disease; there is probably a population that cant afford any health magazine," he says. "Our pass-along readers are poorer people who dont have great medical care. They trust us to deliver this information." Since becoming publisher in 1999, Banks has seen a steady increase in circulation, up 19 percent. He credits his success to breaking through the association stigma. "Anybody in association publications has to walk the fine line," he says. "We have to advance association goals but also be an independent voice that competes with the best commercial content." Formerly editorial director, Banks says readership rates are so high because he listened to his readers and their needs by transforming the magazine graphically and sharpening editorial, incorporating brighter, crisper, practical stories that make an immediate difference in readers lives. Research is crucial to the titles reporting and any money that is made is invested right back into the fight for diabetes. In 2003, Banks made a voluntary decision to turn away certain food advertisers;for foods h Continue reading >>

18 Celebrities With Type 2 Diabetes - Health

18 Celebrities With Type 2 Diabetes - Health

Anyone can be diagnosed with diabeteseven world-class athletes, or the rich and famous. People often think that type 2 diabetes strikes only the overweight and sedentary, or unhealthy eaters. But anyone can be diagnosed with diabetes, even world-class athletes, or the rich and famous. The following celebrities all had some risk factors for diabetes (such as weight, ethnicity, or family history), but many were still shocked to hear the diagnosis. Theyve all made healthy changes in their lives, and many now speak out about the dangers of type 2 diabetes. When Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe was diagnosed with diabetes, she took charge of her health, secretly going under the knife after more than a decade of trying to lose weight naturally. I truly didnt want to worry about all the effects that go along with diabetes, she told People. I genuinely [would] worry all the time about losing my toes. Since having bariatric surgery in 2016, the Brooklyn-born actress, beloved for her breakout role in the 2009 film Precious, continued to make positive lifestyle changes by working with a nutritionist and amping up her fitness regimen. This Emmy award-winning actress won us over as Lt. Van Buren on Law & Order and then as hospital administrator Sharon Goodwin on Chicago Med. In her off-screen life, Merkerson is both a diabetes patient and advocate. She encourages others to reach their A1c goals. Even though she had a family history of type 2 diabetes , my diagnosis was a wake-up call, she told USA Today in 2016. I knew I had to start making serious changes to my lifestyle to take control of my health. That included making more nutritious food choices and taking up brisk walking. When Tom Hanks announced in 2013 that he had type 2 diabetes , he joined millions of other Americans with t Continue reading >>

10 Celebrities Who Have Diabetes

10 Celebrities Who Have Diabetes

Home / Best You / Diabetes / 10 celebrities who have diabetes / After a decades-long battle with high blood sugar, Tom Hanks says he has officially been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. But he's by no means the only celeb who has struggled with the disease. Here are 10 others It seemed to come out of nowhere: weakness, exhaustion and then a sudden urge to lie down. But it wasnt until Halle Berry suddenly collapsed and slipped into a weeklong coma in 1989 that the Oscar-winning actress knew something was seriously wrong. Berry was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes and, over the course of the last 20 years, has taken every opportunity to talk about her disease even going so far as to controversially claim she had been cured by weaning herself off insulin in 2007 . She now considers herself to be in the Type 2 diabetes bracket. Many experts speculate Berry is either confused or was simply misdiagnosed and had Type 2 diabetes all along. Comedian Drew Carey is another celebrity who claims to have cured his diabetes. After dropping 80 pounds in about six months with a low carb diet and lots of cardio exercise, the Price is Right host says he stopped requiring medication to treat his Type 2 diabetes . Im not diabetic anymore, he told People magazine after his dramatic weight-loss. No medication needed. Doctors say Carey is probably in remission and that his technique is by no means a cure for the disease. Hes known as the rugged leader of the Broadstreet Bullies, one of the most notorious teams in hockey history, but for most of his 15-season NHL career with the Philadelphia Flyers, Bobby Clarkes biggest battle was off the ice. The Canadian hockey legend was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at a young age and, in spite of his obvious talent, needed doctors notes to prove he would b Continue reading >>

Magazine Readership Growing, Survey Shows

Magazine Readership Growing, Survey Shows

Some needed good news from the magazine publishing industry: As newsstand sales fell and circulation remained flat through the end of 2012, the latest data from GfK MRIs Survey of the American Consumer, which tracks print and digital magazine audiences, shows that overall readership among adults in the U.S. continued to grow between Spring 2012 and Spring 2013 while digital readership nearly doubled. Over the past year, the U.S. magazine adult audience (for print and digital editions combined) increased nearly 3 percent to 1.2 billion. Titles that saw the most readership growth included Diabetes Forecast (up nearly 50 percent), Yoga Journal (36.6 percent), Psychology Today (36 percent), Veranda (33.2 percent) and Food Network Magazine (28.6 percent). Food magazines were one of the fastest-growing categories, with Food Network Magazine, EatingWell, Cooking With Paula Deen, Food & Wine, Bon Apptit, Cooking Light and Every Day With Rachael Ray all adding readers. Thought-leader titles like The Atlantic, The Economist, Texas Monthly, New York magazine and The New Yorker also increased their readership. Those losing the most readers in the past year included FamilyFun (down 22.5 percent), Inc. (21.2 percent), PC World (20.4 percent), Fit Pregnancy (16.1 percent) and Star (15.3 percent). Fashion magazines were especially hard hit, with nearly every title either down or flat in readership. (Allure and W proved the exception, with sizable increases.) Mens interest titles (including American Hunter, Bassmaster, Golf Digest, North American Fisherman, Cigar Aficionado, Playboy and Maxim) all ranked among the biggest decliners. Although digital readership still makes up a tiny piece of the piemeasuring 1.4 percent of all magazine readershipit continues to grow rapidly. According t Continue reading >>

I saw an interview in one of the diabetes magazines that discussed one of the Jonas' brothers having diabetes. Delta Burke (Designing Women) and the blonde woman from Designing Women (Jean...)have diabetes. I wish we had a really positive, strong woman with diabetes as a role model in Hollywood...I guess Hollywood is waiting on one of us powerful ladies to "make it big!!!":P Nick Jonas from the Jonas brothers has type 1 and wears an Omnipod. On youtube he has a video describing his diagnosis and his decision to wear an Omnipod. Halle Berry was on Inside the Actors Studio recently and when she was asked about her diabetes she said that she was once insulin dependent and now she has overcome it through diet and exercise and no longer has to take insulin. Wouldn't all type 1's like to know how she was able to achieve this great feat. Unless she is really a type 2. I was very disapointed in Halle Berry for not using the forum to at least take the time to be more of a role model. I understand her wanting her privacy though I just belive by her saying she was able to get over having to take medication that she is further misinforming people who do need medication.:huh: Wouldnt we just, never heard that one before, think she must be a type2. Think these celebs live on another planet. Amen. If more celebrities were open about having diabetes and their struggles and triumphs in overcoming it, people wouldn't always classify us as losers who can't take care of our bodies. Mary Tyler Moore has diabetes, as well...she is a huge spokesperson for JDRF and openly discusses her diabetes. Unfortunately, although it hasn't been talked about much, the recently deceased Brittany Murphy had been diagnosed with Type 2. :( Until the details about her prescriptions and OTC's interacting came Continue reading >>

One in 11 Americans has diabetes and every 23 seconds someone is newly diagnosed with diabetes, a problem with your body that causes blood glucose (sugar) levels to rise higher than normal. Diabetes increases your risk for many serious health problems. Before people develop type 2 diabetes, they almost always have prediabetes blood glucose levels that are higher than normal but not yet high enough to be diagnosed as diabetes. Research shows that 84.1 million Americans have prediabetes and 9 out of 10 of them dont know it. L Continue reading >>
