When you see before and after photos with outrageous results in commercials do you think it's real?
With all the instant face lift and weight loss commercials that are out with photos that show incredible results, do you believe them or think they've been touched up? Are you the first one to pick up the phone or to change the channel?
No, I don't believe they are real...maybe some with a small weight loss but not others with hundreds of pounds. I never call on the product because I know how to lose weight on my own and at 64, I am still not that much over where my weight should be.
I'm 56 and I think I have tried every weight loss, exercise machine, steam cleaner, etc, out there especially when I was younger. I'm better now but mostly due to economical reasons, but every now and then theres something that catches my attention
its hard to tell, nowadays, Advertisments, whether on tv or in magazines, are legally obliged to show the real results, otherwise its false advertisments, it there are any additions to the advertisements they need to state it (an example would be the ads for mascaras, for years they were all filmed with fake eyelashes and being sold as amazing mascara with visible differences. Now, if fakes are used to enhance the results, they always put it somewhere in the ad-"Filmed with lash inserts". )
Wow I didn't know that and will probably start checking the ads to see if they have used enhancements now. I know they are always going to use the best results but sometimes it's like Really????? Thanks and great answer.
I know, A lot of the time it looks very unrealistic but it is against the law to advertise fake results so keep a watch out, you'l be surprised what's fake!
How can they be real? No one can change that much in just days or weeks. No believe they are touched up and then the little disclaimer is added stating 'not all results will be the same'.
No, I don't think they are real. I heard somewhere that sometimes what companies would do is, say with a weight loss product, they would look for an athletic person who 'fell out' of shape because of injury or sickness and use their before and after pics (the after pic taken when the person has gotten back into their routine and returned to their fit self) to advertise the product. I don't know how true it is though but it's an interesting ploy
Of course, otherwise the government would shut them down for fraud.
Isn't that true?
I think it used to be true but anymore I find real estate agents, car and phone sales people and everyone else lying through their teeth to get a sale. It is totally out of control if you ask me and now you always have to read the fine print. Ahhhh
Sure, I believe them. The before photo is when the person walks in the studio. The After photo is after they change into nicer clothes, put on makeup, improve the lighting, suck in their stomach, shoot from a better angle, and shrink the photo's width by 10%.
