I was quite surprised to see this article! I'm glad that more people are paying attention to these commercials that are aimed at making women feel bad about what they eat. While this is a step in the right direction, I feel that society has a long way to go. I think that the commercials for Special K also use the technique of showing a skinny woman wanting to lose weight, and this is bad for the psyche of women. By showing already very skinny women, and then insisting that she isn't skinny enough, these products lower women's self esteem.
