When my dentist sent me to a nutrition lifestyle coach the other week, I was excited.
I thought I was going to sit down with the nutrition lifestyle coach and finally get some information that would help me to not just lose the weight, but to keep it off long term.
The first thing my nutrition lifestyle coach did was weigh me and take my systemic vitals. She then opened a booklet and gave me my goals for the month. It didn’t take very long before I earned a 1500 calorie diet with foods I don’t even keep in my pantry. After going through the diet and how I should eat, she said they would set up a single-month appointment. I stopped her as she was walking out the door and asked point blank if she didn’t want to suppose anything about me? She turned and told me she easily would get all the personal things at our next meeting, and told me to go read the information packet. Both of us would review everything at the next meeting. I tried to make a new appointment with the same person, but I ended up with someone new. When I got home from the place my hubby and I went over the entire packet the nutrition lifestyle coach had given. Half of the packet was pertaining to weight loss surgery, and the rest just explained what I would pay. It genuinely sad me with how all of this was going down. I didn’t want weight loss surgery from them. I wanted a nutrition lifestyle coach to help me lose the weight and keep it off.
