Cosmopolitan UK

Cosmopolitan magazine has come under fire for promoting obesity as healthy.

Cosmopolitan UK's February 2021 issue features plus-size women on multiple covers, including influencer Callie Thorpe and yoga teacher Jessamyn Stanley, under the headline "This is healthy!"

The magazine shares the stories of "11 women who prove wellness isn't 'one size fits all.'"

But social media users criticized the magazine for sending the wrong message.

Conservative activist Candace Owens slammed Cosmo for celebrating obesity in a Twitter post.

"We must fight to protect the next generation of children who are being intentionally targeted and brainwashed with lies.

Women can be men?
Men can be women?
And now—obesity is "healthy"?

NO, it's not. Clinical obesity is the main cause of the America's #1 killer: heart disease."

Just two decades ago, no state had obesity rates over 15 percent.

The South has the highest obesity rates

West Virginia leads with 37.7 percent of adults overweight and morbidly obese.

Obese individuals miss more work

Obese workers cost employees more in lost production time and higher insurance premiums.

Obesity is largely preventable

The good news is obesity is preventable by eating a healthy, balanced diet and exercising regularly. Obesity is beautiful when a woman's weight is proportionate to her height and bone mass, i.e. thick sistas.

Michelle Obama

Health food enthusiast Michelle Obama participated in an #AskTheFirstLady question and answer session on Twitter.com yesterday.

One of the first questions (which was surely pre-planned) came from a well-known President Obama impersonator who asked Mrs. Obama how many calories she burns when she turns up. "Turn up" is ghetto slang for get down.
