    Pay Close Attention.

    When you see the ones where they show a before and after photo, notice how the before photo is totally not the same person.  I really notice this in the magazine diet ads.  I mean, unless they lost all that weight, dyed their hair, got a nose job, and colored contacts...

    Diets

    I hate these idiotic commercials.  They try to undermine a person's self worth, by telling you that you are not as good as a skinny person.  BS!  Obesity is dangerous, but dieting to please another person is wrong, wrong, wrong.  Keep fit, eat properly and do moderate...

    It Is Not Fair

    Have you ever noticed that many times right after a diet commercial they will picture a restaurant commercial. They make the banana split or Bic Mac, Fries and Coke bigger than life. Now I do not diet, I am not skinny but I do not consider myself fat. What is the point of dieting...

    Dumbing Down Our Diets

    You want to watch T.V. that's sillier than the sitcoms?  Try diet commercials.  Their uber-simplistic approaches to issues of body and health are our culture's pathetic answer to a microscopic obsession with our waists, stomachs, and butts.  They cause...

    Right Way / Wrong Way

    The reason I hate diet commercials is that they're selling a quick fix.  "Eat our dinners 3x a day for six months and you, too will look like Suzie Skinny!" Give me a break.Weight loss is about education and changes in lifestyle.  Those frozen dinners work because they are pre...

    I Hate Them But Secretly...

    ...I really like to gawk at the before pictures. I also like how a lot of the women seem to lose most of the weight from their boobs. Tough break, loser! Also people seem to age several years when they lose weight. They look more wrinkled, tired and stressed and definitely less...

    Diet Commercials Are Garbage

    The problem I have with these commercials are that they will sometimes show someone that is not fat, but not teeny either.  They look average and healthy to me.  And then they say that person was overweight, but hey! look at how much weight they lost... They...
