Diet and Fitness Advertisements

I was curious what sort of funny weight loss and fitness advertisements I could find on the net... So, after a quick google images search, here is what I found.




























































And, finally here is a diet that I haven't tried.... SMOKING! Do you think that these retro ads are real?

These are interesting. Most of them I find too fat-shaming to be humorous, though. And I have to point out that the Body Shop ad with the plus-sized Barbie doll was actually part of an ad campaign to promote body acceptance and positivity and not weight-loss.

I thought all those pics were funny. Thanks for sharing! Gave me a good giggle for the evening :)

I loved the wedding cake picture. As far as the Barbie! They should really make real woman looking Barbies!

Ugh. I totally didn't need to see some of those butt cracks! Being fat is bad enough but being fat and showing your ass-ets isn't always a good thing.

Juanita... Yesterday, while putting up a new mailbox post in my front yard, a group of teenages came walking by. One of the girls was such an ass that she kept saying "I see your butt crack" as she walked by. It's one thing to make fun of yourself but yet another to make fun of other people. Perhaps karma will give her an equally fat ass?

I found these ads funny because I feel I can laugh at myself and my own kind. But at the same time, I guess I can see why it's offensive to some.
