- Restrict any posts promoting weight-loss products or cosmetic procedures with an "incentive to buy" or a price attached so that under-18s can't see them.
- Remove any content that makes a "miraculous claim about certain diet or weight loss products" and comes with a commercial offer such as a discount code.
