The Obamas: First Family of Fitness

Health care reform is a huge topic right now...and the First Family is putting an exclamation point to the topic by appearing on the covers of Rodale's Health magazines.

First Lady Michelle Obama is on the cover of Children's Health and is featured in Women's Health, while President Obama is the cover guy of Men's Health...with his shirt on. That magazine usually features buff men with nothing on from the waist up.

Phew...thought we had a Putin on our hands here. OK, to be fair, Putin was caught with his shirt off. And, if you remember, so was Obama!

Children's Health is a going to be a spin-off of Men's and Women's Health and this magazine will be a one-time deal (maybe)...coming out next week. In it, Michelle talks about the First Family's eating plan.

Women's Health has the details on how Michelle gets those super tone arms straight from her personal trainer and the President talks about the tax on soda in Men's Health and also goes "inside the While House kitchen."

Are you interested in reading any of these magazines? What tips for Health Living would you share with the Obamas?

I think it is a great idea. We are a fast food junkie nation that lives off of instant gratification. What really needs to happen is someone needs to step in and put an end to the diet pill and fad diet industry. We need to know as a nation that no pill or crazy soup diet will take the pounds off and keep them off. The only way to achieve lasting weight loss is to do it naturally with a program designed to teach people about foods, how to eat, what foods to eat that will boost metabolism, what foods to eat to reduce belly fat, why some foods are not the best thing to eat and why you should just have them in moderation and not to cut them out (cutting foods out leads to binge eating). Moderate exercise is a factor too. We need to move more. I am not saying go out and join a gym and workout 7 days a week, no way. The workout program I follow is only a few times a week from my own home with little equipment. I lost 82 pounds the natural way 80% diet and 20% exercise. I have kept it off for over 2 ½ years now.

I bought the mag and was really disappoint in huge photo shot of reese family and no info.  Also I was hoping that it was written for teens to read so they could take interest in they're health.  I did by this mag in Singapore.  I liked the first family and how they show healthy lifestyle and the importance of family ... but the mag was really lacking with all the info out their about food intolerances and  they should have some everyday sports people who are into sport young not professional and here what they do on days they dot want to go to practice.  More of a mag that parents could read along with kids.
