Sick: Cosmopolitan magazine touts cancer for weight loss

Mara Siegler reports for Page Six that Cosmopolitan is the recipient of “mountains of backlash” after the magazine, on April 11, 2017, tweeted out an article by Elizabeth Narins, titled “How This Woman Lost 44 Pounds Without Any Exercise”.


General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 

The only problem is 31-year-old Simone Harbinson, the woman touted by Cosmopolitan for having shed 44 pounds without any exercise, was suffering from cancer.

After being diagnosed with a severe kidney infection, doctors discovered Harbinson tested positive for a rare form of cancer — malignant carcinoid tumor of the appendix. She underwent multiple surgeries and endured harrowing complications.

Harbinson was also diagnosed with “post-traumatic stress disorder triggered by her cancer diagnosis”. She turned to food for comfort and put on weight. She then lost the weight on a diet called The Bod instead of exercise, because she was still recovering from the cancer surgeries and wasn’t physically able to work out the way she used to before her cancer diagnosis.

The reaction from social media was swift. Here are two examples of scathing tweets directed at the magazine:

“Good to know that ‘several life-threatening setbacks’ (*cancer*) is the key to weight loss. Do better, Cosmo. Do better.”

“Well, sure. Get cancer and spend a significant amount of time in the hospital and the weight just falls off. Come on!!”

Cosmopolitan has since changed the headline of the article to: “A Serious Health Scare Helped Me Love My Body More Than Ever.” It also edited out the second-to-last line in the original article proclaiming, “Simone’s weight loss success is proof that ANYONE can lose weight without breaking a sweat simply by eating more mindfully — no gym required.”
