This is going to sound harsh, but I don't take food advice from doctors or trainers because I've gotten crappy advice from both. I use a trainer for workouts and to motivate me to workout harder than I would alone, not to shame me for eating "wrong". If I want a diet plan and accountability for how I'm eating, I'll see a registered dietician.

That said, no one can motivate me to eat what I should eat other than myself. I have to be accountable to me, just like each one of them has to be accountable to themselves. They know what they should be doing. Maybe it was a stressful week for a lot of them. Life happens and weight loss and eating healthy isn't always a priority.

I have a Bachelor's degree in Nutrition, I continue to read up on it, and I know what I need to do. Some days, I'm just not motivated to do it, and no one else can make me motivated.

I'd back off. Lashing out does nothing useful.
