Weight Loss Commercials?

Friday, August 03, 2012

So I've concluded that weight loss commercials are ridiculous. Take Special K commercials. This morning I watched one that has been shown before, the girl was already as slim as could be. Does she REALLY need to lose weight? NO. It just really skeeves me to see people who don't need to lose weight, featured in commercials and advertisements for such. Not really good for motivation...and on top of that. I don't need nor want to be THAT slim or skinny. There's nothing in those commercials that make me say, "Oh, I must go out and get this product so I can look like that!" But here, look for yourself. emoticon

    You make an excellent point. I also want to point out to the old yoplait commercials that triggered outrage because they seemed to encourage anorexia and other ills. Our society needs to reevaluate what kind of message we put out there because we create the ills we are faced with now.

    Right on! I have issues with the paid sponsors for places as well. I would rather see someone like me or a working class person, not a celebrity! You are not alone with being annoyed by all of those commercials!

    I so agree with you! I think they want "attractive" people n the ads, but in this case, it just discourages me even more!
