I usually watch pre-recorded shows and zip through the commericals too. The other night I was watching something live and I was surprised by the number of food commercials and also surprised how tempted I was! No, I didn't give in to temptation, but really can see how their advertising works on the brain. I think I'll stick to taped stuff!

I can pretty much ignore the ads here -- although I really dislike the cartoon one of the lady holding her stomach fat.

I really can't take the commercials on TV. FOOD - FOOD - FOOD - 95% unhealthy. Luckily we record most of our shows and can zip thru the commercials.

Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

I've been grumbling about this sort of thing too. All the pics of chocolate and muffins and cookies are triggering for me.
Then, yesterday, I got to see an ad in my own language (Dutch) with a picture of a baby and it said 'baby food vomited out right away?'. (Ad for baby food)
THAT made me glad actually for pics of brownies. There's always worse! LOLOLOL.
It's that double message that drives me crazy: live healthy - eat junkfood!

I saw one for chocolate cupcakes when I was reading a blog on SP today - I understand the advertizing to keep it free - I just wish they were better foods.

There is a McDonalds ad at the top of this page and it aint for SALAD but Sausage McMuffin and hamburgers. Just venting seems a little in appropriate.
