It's almost like social hour there - they talk about everything under the sun - when I want in and out and to obtain professional advice. All four of them have been off and on the program multiple times and can't seem to stay on it or maintain their weight loss goals.
I've come to realize I will have to get my food there and my information elsewhere.
Just a little disappointed.
In a nutshell, in bold, above.
There are different levels of training for coaches and different clinics have different standards. Some are just in it for the money and others are really in it for the professionalism. I fired my coach, too, when IP just wasn't meeting my soy/gluten-free needs well (except with VERY limited product availability).
The IP-world would be a MUCH better place if there were high standards of training throughout.
