There is a fad in the US among teenage girls that has made being slim and skinny in fashion. Popular actresses like the Olsen Twins, Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie have been seen as physically beautiful and sexy at around, what, 85 pounds? Not only them, but just by looking at the media, primetime shows such as The Tyra Banks Show, Oprah, and others also discuss the issue of being “too slim.” It is safe to say that almost every teenage girl in America wants to be thin too, thinking of it as the “cool” thing to be or to do. In fashion, all models are required, or in any case, be thin. But some are just TOO thin, more like skin and bones. Not attractive at all, if you are NOT a model. Being an American teenage girl, you want to BE like them. So, the easiest way for them? Weight loss pills.
With their student allowances, they save up for these weight loss pills. In any drugstore or even a supermarket like Target or Walmart, these pills are available for them to gobble up and get thinner. Then, the outbreak of weight loss pills begins.
A product called “NV” is new and on the market now. It is so called the “First Rapid weight loss (and beauty) pill”. This rapid weight loss pill has a “three complex formula” that contains a beauty, weight loss, and energy blend. The catch? Well, its Carmen Electra, the spokeperson and endorser for “NV”. This alone will make the women swoon for this new rapid weight loss pill. It’s new, i’ts “rapid”, it is personally recommended by Carmen Electra herself! Now that’s advertising.
So, how are these weight loss pills be so popular? It’s the society, and how Hollywood gets to “shape up” the youth of today. Young women, wanting to look good and feel great all the time, turn to this method of taking pills because it’s cheap, affordable, quick and easy. Of course, not only taking such weight loss pills, but sometimes they really don’t eat at all! And that’s where anorexia enters. This disorder is getting common among teenage girls as well, since they ought to want to be as thin as the girls they see on TV. How sad. It seems like either media is as powerful as the government, or if rapid weight loss pills are effective. Who knows?
People should consider their health, especially young women today. Such rapid weight loss pills are just an extension of, well, weight loss pills. It is widely available in America, and not all are believed to be effective or even safe. Such drugs only alter the normal cycle of digestion, and can sometimes lead to disorders like anorexia and other eating disorders, which can be very harmful for your health. Imagine starvation?
Young women today should realize how wrong and misunderstood being what an attractive if not sexy, a woman should be. Feeling good about yourself, making sure that your health, social life, and other responsibilities are not disregarded. Whether you are fat, small, black, white, it really doesn’t matter, as long as you are reflective of a good and happy person. In this case, rapid weight loss pills won’t be the answer.
