eating disorder?

do you think a tv advertisement could trigger an eating disorder?

i read an article on yahoo today.  a commercial was pulled from tv because they were worried that it may “trigger” an eating disorder.

i am not too sure how i feel about this.

here is the commercial:

personally…i found it rather amusing.  the way the lady is justifying eating a piece of cheesecake.
don’t we all do that???

i know that if i eat something a little to rich or sweet…something that is not typically on my diet…i have conversations with myself…
if i eat this i need to go to the gym regardless if it’s my day off, if i eat this i need 15 more minutes on the elliptical.
etc etc etc.

i assure you i do not have an eating disorder.

my head is still too jumbled up to be clear on this…so what say you?  what do you think of the commercial?

Here is the article i read on yahoo.  click here to read.

please feel free to discuss!

      I totally agree with Susan’s comment above! Honest justification tis all it was about! People are just too sensitive about the wrong things in life!

    I’ve watched that commercial many times and it never crossed my mind it would trigger an eating disorder…I think someone who has a tendency to have an eating disorder is going to do it regardless of a commercial like this one. Gosh, as a society we have made everything so complicated haven’t we! 😦
