Cosmopolitan: Get Cancer, Lose Weight

Cosmopolitan magazine is facing major backlash after they posted the click bait titled article "How This Woman Lost 44 Pounds Without ANY Exercise."

Her secret?

A rare form of cancer, organ removal, multiple infections, a partial lung collapse and PTSD from the entire traumatizing experience.

The article tells the story of 31-year-old Simone Harbinson who after suffering a recent "waterfall of health scares" she began to binge on food for comfort.

When she decided she wanted to drop the weight, she started meal-prepping and following a nutrition program that helped her drop 44 pounds.

The magazine posted the article but soon deleted the accompanying tweet.

However with the post still up with the same title, social media users were NOT happy as the magazine was promoting her weight loss as the main focus of her story.

The article has since been renamed "A Serious Health Scare Helped Me Love My Body More Than Ever."
