Outraged at Walmart: Donuts for diabetes?


Adam Brown was outraged in the Walmart checkout line, when he saw this magazine, and tweeted about it.

Can you “outsmart diabetes” by eating donuts? Hardly. On the contrary, it’s pretty much guaranteed to make people sicker.

So is this advice tragic, comical or criminal? What do you think?

    I'm not surprised that Prevention.com magazine is printing this sort of crap content. They are owned and operated by Rodale publishing...at this website is a list of their clients: http://www.rodalegrow.com/clients

    With Big Food and Big Pharma clients like Nestle, Kraft, Kashi, Novartis, Bayer, P&G, Merck, Splenda, General Mills, Dole, AstraZeneca, Abbott, etc...no wonder their magazine content is completely misleading and promoting detrimental eating habits.

    It's criminal, of course, but in the States many live in denial of many truths. I was one of them. Through this site & the access to Dr. Fung's series' (Calories, Hormonal Obesity & Diabesity) I am stone cold sober now & ready to admit what I never would before - I'm an insulin resistant, out of control T2D that needs to start taking my health more seriously. We shall see if it works.

    I find it interesting how they track how people are trying to break away from them and then offer them excuses for continuing to kill themselves with the starch and sugar.
    I subscribed to Prevention Magazine for many years and found that every month there were 2 or 3 more supplements that I simply must take.
    In 2000, I stopped all 26 daily supplements and was amazed to find I did not drop dead but actually felt a lot better.
    I am so happy to be a member of your site. What you present is very simple and easy to do.
    I have found that if a thing I am doing becomes more and more complicated, that I am on the wrong track. I am 74 years old and I have lost 45 pounds. I would still like to lose 25 pounds more, but if I never do, I am absolutely delighted with all the ways my body is healing and amazed at my energy level. I feel better than I ever have in my life.
    Your advice is easy to implement, easy to maintain and works. It does not get any better than that.
    Keep up the good work.

    This magazine might have been seen at a Walmart store, but it's clearly a PREVENTION magazine publication. PREVENTION is the culprit; Walmart's only the unthinking distributor. I dumped PREVENTION years ago; their advice was among the worst.

    I say this at Walmart yesterday and said the exact same thing to my husband. Who do they think they are kidding?

    So many magazines for women use this line of marketing. They have the hottest diet trend of the moment ("lose 30 lbs. in xx days!"), alongside a delicious dessert. Anyone following their advice is guaranteed to not lose any significant amount of weight, and usually they fall into yo-yo dieting as a result.
