Just what I freakin' need: something new to worry about.

Is it me or does it have to be more than coincidence that this ran in their FASHION issue? I'm all down with the virtues of hitting the gym (must set alarm for the morning!) and building muscle mass. There's definitely a core of sense here. But telling women "you can't trust BMI, you can't trust your weight, you can't trust your size" just isn't a good way to promote health. And the image too, it plays into that lizard-brain "I hate my body, I'm fat, I'm gross" instinctual thought pattern that most women constantly struggle to overcome. I'm especially concerned by the fact that they don't explain how a woman can find out whether she's really "too fat". As if there aren't enough women out there w/ eating disorders? Bleh.
