Well, they were saying on TV a couple of nights ago that lemon juice mega boosts absorption of calcium in older women.

I will happily drink that.

Left & right models clearly outshine Akemi D.

Young female consumers perhaps?

The left and right girls are definitely hotter... seems like a strange placement

All three are hot stuff? yes, because of 15cm hot high heels !

I would say that all 3 of them need a good meal, way to thin for me.

Yep, left and right are the better looking girls.

If you are conscientious about your health and diet, you avoid soda of any kind. As a rule you even avoid fruit juice and eat whole fruit instead.

It appears the ones on the end are afraid their faces will crack, if they smile.

Suddenly thirsty...

Middle for me, thanks.

Why are the others not smiling? In fact, they look a little pissed.

I have a sudden urge to drink Sprite... Must fight the advertising campaign...

Asian women are beautilful but the anorexit look is beyond me.

All three look good. They probably eat right, work out right and live right. Not to mention their genes. What do you expect them to look like?

Believe it or not, these three have a healthy look. The west has redefined overweight as healthy in recent decades however, making these healthy girls look 'anorexic' to the west.

Not sure about the woman in the center--she looks frail to me. The other two, sure, they look fine. Average young Japanese women. Even the majority of moms I see at my kid's elementary school have this body type. Being skinny or trim doesn't mean you have an eating disorder. I think such thinking in the west results from the rarity of seeing people like this. "If not anorexia or bulimia or some insane diet, how can you possibly be that skinny!" As if a person's diet or exercise regiment or active lifestyle has no role to play. That said, constantly putting FWD waifish girls in advertising is pretty repellent.

Young consumers who are conscious of their health and diet and who want a zero calorie drink should just drink mugicha.

Beautiful and I like Sprite with or without pretty women.
