What? You can't find the time in your schedule to work out twice a day for several hours each time. Well why don't you hire some people to look after your kids, feed your significant other and run all your errands while you just work out and get ready for your cover shoot. Oh, and according to Elisabeth she didn't diet at all, so you don't need to worry about that at all.
In the article, the editors and Elisabeth make it seem like it is all manageable for everyone to do and that you to will have the perfect body after just six weeks of hard work. That is all crap of course and it can rarely be done. They want you to believe it can be done so that way you will but the magazine and buy the products that are advertised in the magazine. If they have to stretch the truth to get it done so be it. In fact, it really might even be lying if you take into account the fact they airbrushed and photoshopped the hell out of this photo. No imperfections anywhere on her body? Wow, how did she manage to do that? Does she have a product to sell for that?
You would think Elisabeth would be the type of person who would be sensitive to this and try and be more real, but the closest she comes in the article is this quote. "I finally told myself ... 'I've got some curves, I've got a bubble butt, but I don't mind, because it's what powers me forward when I run.'
Oh, gee, that's great. I guess she preferred the flat ass she had before and that everyone who has a bubble butt or any curves should be ashamed unless of course you are a runner and then it is fine. Elisabeth and every person they throw up on Shape or Fitness always makes it seem as if you can be just like them if you would only do what the article says and if you buy the products in the magazine. What they are selling is false and misleading and just wrong. It is designed to make you feel inadequate and miserable and that is what work is for. It shouldn't also have to bombard you from the checkout stands.
