As obesity in America is on the rise, so are advertisements for weight loss. Millions of weight loss advertisements can be heard on the radio, seen in magazines, on billboards, and on television. With all the different weight loss plans/products, they all promises great results, fast. But do any of these products actually work? One of the most popular diet pills is Hydroxycut. Below is a picture of one of their advertisements that was posted in a magazine. The first thing a consumer would see is the bold statement at the top stating how much weight was lost due to Hydroxycut. If you look closely, there is a small statement under the picture that reads "Brittany used Hydroxycut with diet and exercise and was remunerated." This means that this person not only used the product, but worked out and dieted, and was paid for it. The reader has no idea how this woman dieted or how much she exercised. Most of the weight loss products and plans are supposed to be used with diets and exercise, however are not stated clearly. Without either of those, you would not be able to lose weight in a healthy way. Weight loss products are on the rise and will continue to grow in the media. The consumer needs to be proactive and research the products they wish to use. With this, they can make an informed decision on whether the product will work for them.
