Introduction to lifestyle magazines

Men's Fitness MagazineThe contents of this magazine are health, fitness, and food. The main focus of this video is the fitness, eating healthy, looking good, workouts, and tips to get ripped. The front cover even tells you whats inside, for example it says 'top foods for abs'. The magazine is based on how to look to good and that only. The front cover is of a built man showing of his muscles which connotes that the person has put the man on there to show if you do what the magazine says you will turn out like him, which you won't he has probably trained for ages for his body to be like that. 

The page is layout so that the man is the main feature with lots of facts around it trying to suggest that he got his six pack by obeying these facts and tips, which is incorrect.
