Why does Google keep showing me the same ads over and over?

I don't really know how Google ads work but I can't help noticing that the same ads crop up again and again.

Given the number of ads I see repeated from small companies who surely don't have multi-million dollar budgets I guess the latter.

If this is the case I can understand  why mmorpg players have been plagued with those salacious Evony ads  but I am somewhat miffed that Google has now decided to bombard me with the following:



I get this offer to  "Cut down 3lbs of your belly every week" at least ten times a day. What facet of my lifestyle could possibly have convinced Google that I need to lose some weight?
