For years Medifast has relied on under-the-radar marketing to sell its weight loss products. Physicians referred the company's meal replacements to patients who needed to shed pounds. Some of those patients in turn became salespeople, using themselves as walking testimonials. And with the advent of the Internet, the 27-year-old company began selling directly to consumers through its Web site. In the meantime, rivals such as NutriSystem and Unilever's SlimFast elbowed their way to the top of the meal replacement market with high-profile marketing.

No sense fighting it. As The Boss would say: 57 channels and the election's on. There's nothing else to do, so let's rock around the clock with the election on television:8:18 a.m. I certainly hope NBC pays overtime. There's Bryant Gumbel on "The Today Show," and he's going to have to work tonight, too. No wonder Jane Pauley left "Today." There she was, putting in those long hours, while her husband was home all day, drawing cartoons. I bet he never even emptied the dishwasher.8:19 a.m. On "Good Morning America," Joan Lunden is talking to a veterinarian who's patting a horse on the neck.

Have you seen the Jenny Craig commercial that shows a chic woman entering a dressing room to try on a bathing suit?As she's shutting the door, she looks placid. You know what's coming. A few seconds later, presumably after she has put on the suit, she yowls.Yup. The worst part of the whole bathing suit thing for women is trying it on. Once you buy it and you're at the beach or the pool, you can try to ignore yourself. But you can't do that under an arsenal of fluorescent lights. Pasty imperfections are just waiting for you to study, dwell on - and weep.

WASHINGTON -- The Federal Trade Commission charged five of the nation's largest commercial diet programs yesterday with engaging in deceptive advertising, saying they have made unsubstantiated weight-loss claims and used consumer testimonials without evidence they represent typical experiences of dieters in their programs.As a result of the cases, "we believe that some six million consumers will get far more realistic information about what they'll get for the more than $2 billion they spend each year on memberships in weight loss programs," said Christian S. White, acting director of the FTC's bureau of consumer protection.

My television set almost met an untimely end thanks to Jenny Craig.The commercial for the ''Jenny Craig Weight Loss Program'' had come on yet again as I sat enraptured with a bacon cheeseburger and a frosty. There she was, hailing her program as the answer to everyone's weight problem. The implicit message, of course, is that if one loses enough weight, all life's pleasures will beat a path to one's door.I am a large-sized woman, so commercials such as these -- as well as exercise videos and fashion magazines -- fill me with both hope and dread.
