Has anyone flipped through this? I saw it by the cash registers at whole foods yesterday. I didn't have a chance to look through it as I had BabyPunk with me.

Sorry if this has already been discussed

I haven't seen it, but I will be on the look out! It could be really awesome or really bad. I like to exercise. I do not like to 'eat clean.'

It was $4.99 and right by the register. Wish I had extra hands so I could have flipped through

I got the winter (first?) issue. It's mostly exercised-focused, not food-focused, from what I remember. So not much about clean eating. Profiles of athletes. Exercise routines. Exercise clothing. I honestly can't remember it well because I find exercise boring to read about.

Though I just looked up the most recent issue, and the cover has "more recipes!" So I must not be the only one.

I bought the "more recipes" one the other day and that was the first time I had seen it. I didn't really like it. There was a lot of unscientific stuff about how a vegan diet can prevent all kinds of stuff from [insert disease here] to vegemite! What?! And none of the recipes sounded that good, either. And it wasn't a visually appealing magazine. Hard to tell the ads from the substance.

Yeah...the graphic design is just so bad that I'm a little bit embarrassed by it. I feel like you really need to have a quality designer on board before you start a magazine.

The design is pretty awful and this issue is SUPER focused on the whole clean eating/china study/etc stuff. Previous issues have been a bit more exercise focused but definitely there was still the whole clean eating/plant based thing. I kind of like it but if it remains as plant based/fat phobic/etc in future issues I may not renew. Lisapunk, I have several issues, I could send them to you since you're not far away?

I bought the latest issue on impulse at the coop and was not impressed. I should have bought more cupcakes instead.
