I've gotten a bit de-sensitized to it over time, but once in awhile, if I am hungry and a food commercial comes on at the right time, it certainly does have a hypnotizing effect! I think what still gets me the most is pizza commercials. Pizza and I have a love affair; it wants me to come back
My real weakness is that I often watch cooking shows, for ideas and techniques, and the food always looks so delicious after it's done. Further, cooking shows don't usually put an emphasis on "calories" and "health!"
