Enough with the TV Commercials!

Someone in my weight loss group just mentioned something that has been making me batty this week—enough with the food commercials on TV, please! If we took food commercials off of television, eating healthily would be a hell of a lot easier.

Honestly, I just change the channel or at least hit mute at this point. I’m in ketosis, so I’m not feeling physically hungry. That is, unless I see a Dairy Queen commercial. Even looking at the nasty Chili’s and Olive Garden commercials gets my mouth watering and my brain sending out Pooh-like wouldn’t a little spot of honey be lovely messages.

Just notice, the next time you are watching television, how many commercials are laden with shots of tantalizing, rich, decadent food. No wonder we banned cigarette and alcohol ads.

Of course, you could also make the argument that I should get off my lazy butt and exercise instead of watch TV. I’ll get to that, but you can’t exercise all of the time …
