Use ad blocker to cut most of them out of your life completely. I don't see many ads at all anymore.

No, there's no such thing as adblocker for your tv yet, alas. The best you can do is record your shows and fast forward through the commercials. I completely agree about diet pill ads, though. Every iota of biological/physiological knowledge in my being screams in rage whenever one comes on. I just try to tune them out as best I can.

theyre just getting unbelievable. theres one with a before and after picture, BOTH of which are ridiculouslllyyy photoshopped, they dont look real at ALL. not even from a bias "i know better" kind of way. they actually look cheaply stretched. and the horrible part is some people believe them.

Before and after shots in any sort of quick-fix weight loss ad are ridiculous; a lot of the time, they'll find a serious athlete who's suffered an injury that's kept them sedentary for a while and thus gained weight, and use a picture of them in that state for the "before" shot, then wait until they've healed and returned to their usual heavy training regime for an "after" shot. Obviously, the miracle diet cure/pill/whatever will have had nothing to do with their weight loss, and anyone who uses the miracle whatever won't see their "not typical" results unless they follow the same sort of training regime.
