Connection between advertising and shame?

I see an indicator that society, mostly by way of all the diet advertising, is telling women they have a problem and they need to be ashamed of themselves or feel inadequate until they buy xyz. I have no hard numbers at hand but I would guess that at least two thirds of all diet and exercise schemes are marketed towards women. To advertise something you have to convince someone they have a problem or lack in their life. A connection is plausible.
