Melissa Toler is a health coach colleague and when I read her latest blog post, I wished I had written the same thing. So rather than re-invent the wheel, she gave me permission to feature her piece on my blog. This is really important and echoes my philosophy of health and my health coaching practice as well. I hope it resonates with you, too.
Why I Stopped Selling Weight Loss
Even though my bank account could use some of the $60 billion that Americans pump into the diet and weight loss industry every year, I'm opting out.
I've decided to stop selling weight loss. There was no lightbulb moment, no big breakthrough. This didn't happen overnight. It's been a gradual shift that's been in the works for a while.
My decision came almost a year ago, but I've been hesitant to write about it until now.
You might be asking "What does it mean to not sell weight loss?". It means that I won't tell you what you should eat, how much you should exercise or how much you should weigh.
