These articles are loathsome since they prey on people's bodily insecurities, are often condescending, and truthfully should read: "Pinpoint the parts of your flabby ass that you hate enough to change, then hold yourself to impossibly high standards of exercise and nutrition to try and melt that flabby ass away, then hate yourself for falling short of the impossibly high standards."
Equally, though, I also dislike the opposite "Love your flabby ass with all its extra assiness" articles. Both, I think, say something similar (even though I doubt that's their intention): Dwell on your body and take up emotional real estate with that contemplation.
So, if I'm complaining about both, what kind of health/exercise/body image article titles would I like to see?
"Exercise! It makes you feel less bitey and ensures you don't end your day mumbling incoherent fragments while bouncing your forehead off the wall"?
"10 ways exercise will make you strong so that you don't throw up each time you have to push your kids around the zoo"?
"If you eat a balanced diet, sleep 8 hours a day, exercise, and spend time relaxing, you'll have a higher quality of life and MIGHT even live longer"?
"Like your bod enough so you don't have any damaging complexes but not so much you post obnoxious abs selfies"?
I doubt I'll see those headlines anytime soon.
Too wordy, right?
