ADS THAT ENCOURAGE PREOCCUPATION WITH THE BODY

Certain companies associated with the diet, fitness, and fashion industries make a huge profit by getting people to link food and fitness with appearancerather than with

optimum health and peak performance.

THINK ABOUT IT…

Energy output happens through growth, metabolism, and physical activityyou know this. There is nothing that people can eat or drink that burns fat.

“Fat burner” products, like all “quick weight loss” powders, pills, and herbal potions, are a complete scam.

Some are dangerous.

Don’t buy or use them.

KEEP IT REAL

People are genetically programmed to be a variety of body types. Fitness ads, especially those featured in teen or fashion magazines, are famous for portraying unrealistic images of both women and men.

Achieving the supposedly “perfect” body is not a meaningful goal. Accepting ourselves and each other, including our different body types, is!

F.Y.I.

Photos of models in ads are often enhancedwhich means faked. The photo’s touched up.

Many models have had breast enlargement surgery, tummy tucks, rear lifts, rib removal. Pretty brutal things to do for no medical reason, wouldn’t you say?

Having the goal of achieving the body type pushed by the media and the fashion and fitness industries can really get in the way of your healthy development.

Don’t sacrifice your health and energy to perform well for the sake of fulfilling somebody else’s shallow definition of beauty.

Stay focused. Don’t get stuck! Stick with The Cactus Plan, get enough sleep, nourish your body with healthy eating, and stay active. You will be where you want to be.

JUST SAY NO

If certain magazines make you feel down about yourself, heydon’t read them!

DUMMIES?

Girls are regularly portrayed in fashion ads as silly mindless puffs of fluff whose main

job is to look babyish and relatively dopey and to be weak and nonthreatening, and

whose only goal is to reel in and land a cute boy.

The sorry fact is that these ads are totally off base. Girls rock.
