Week 8

Explain why your most favorite or hated ads had an influence on you. What was it that worked – or didn’t work?

By Katherine Woods

I personally hate weight loss commercials especially ones like Sensa, Hydroxycut, and Xenadrine just to name a few. They give this skewed image and reasoning that all your problems will be fixed with just a simple pill. It’s almost conditioning people to believe that if they have a problem, just slip a pill and all will be fixed. They use visuals of both men and women who seem to have lost incredible amount of weight, they don’t how ever mention that change in diet and exercise needs to be included. Having a sister who went through an eating disorder I personally find all of these commercials offensive and disgusting. I understand the need for weight loss but it should then be done consciously with work outs and a diet change, not by the believe of a wonder pill.
