So upon examination of Time magazine’s splashy cover story “Why Exercise Won’t Make You Thin,” it doesn’t have art as cool as our nearly identical story from two years ago did. But it does have the advantage of a touching anecdote about how writer John Cloud got fat after a breakup. It was “a period when I self-medicated with lots of Italian desserts,” he wrote, which is the kind of national reporting we can totally get behind. [Time]
