Holly Jean and John discuss the latest controversy over Cosmopolitan magazine and the cover photo featuring obese women with the caption “this is healthy”. The magazine has come under criticism, being accused of glamorizing obesity, for being irresponsible for displaying obesity as the picture of health during a time where a global pandemic is disproportionately affecting people with obesity and metabolic disorders more adversely. Then there is an outrage in response to the criticism from the body positivity and the body love movement. Holly Jean and Jonathan discuss the valid opinions and arguments on both sides of these discussions and how conversation is opening a lot of doors to understanding and dissecting a complicated topic.

Jonathan shares his proven success formula he uses to help clients:

The ROAD method

R – Remove O – Observe A – Action D – Discipline
