Those Pesky Banner Ads


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I have found that I start to "hunger" for things like Dairy Queen (when I'm not hungry) when I keep seeing banner ads on the sides of facebook and other websites that I search. So I minimize the browser window to a smaller setting, so I can see what I want, and miss all those pesky ads. The power of seeing a familiar logo sets me craving for things not good for me and this is how I prevent some of that.

I have noticed that for the most part, the banner ads on Spark People have been better than most, when coming to foods/cravings. This works mostly for the side ads and maybe not so much for the banner ads on the top and bottom of pages

    If you use firefox, adblock plus will do the same job! :)

    Another solution to this problem is to download a program that automatically blocks annoying website advertisements for you. I use AdBlock Pro, which you can get for free:>
an Ad Blocker, you can enjoy the maximized version of your favorite websites but still avoid the tempting side ads!
