Hey,

I dont think google should have an issue with the before after pics in an image ads.

Although, I think there is a policy that states that you cannot mislead a user saying something like you would get a body like that in 15 days or without any effort/magically basically. (poor explanation.. but couldnt think of another way.. sorry! Smiley Happy )

Cheers,
Shweta

To add  to @ShroffS answer;

You cannot promote a weight loss program that is not based on common scientific practice: moderate diet and exercise.

All "miricale" diets are not allowed.

@ShroffS Shweta;

It's under the "user safety"  section of the Policy;
"Google doesn't allow sites that mislead users with scientifically improbable claims. This ad claims an unrealistic amount of weight loss in a short period of time without diet and exercise."
