Weight Loss Support - Support Policy - Agree to Disagree

Diet plans are a lot like politics and religion – everyone thinks that theirs is the right way. Unlike most diet sites, 3FC supports all healthy weight loss plans so we have to ‘agree to disagree’ about which is the best plan. Everyone here has a unique body and life, with different needs. What works for one person may not work for another and no one here knows what is appropriate for another member.

‘Agreeing To Disagree’ means that we acknowledge that other 3FC members have differing views and opinions on weight loss that are equally valid as our own.

The following are not permissible under our Agree To Disagree policy:

- Debating weight loss methods and plans.

- Telling another member that his/her diet plan, exercise plan, and/or food choices are unhealthy, wrong, bad or won’t work unless your opinion is specifically requested.

If you wish to support another member, please answer questions in a factual, friendly manner to the best of your ability, but do not argue or critique other’s choices or plans unless specifically requested to do so. Please do not undermine or debate what other members have chosen to do. This is a support forum, not a forum for debate.

If you have a concern that a member is following a plan that may be harmful to his or her health, the correct thing to do is to PM the member privately. If you not wish to PM the member, please PM a moderator or administrator for assistance. Do not challenge the member publicly.

Posts that are argumentative or critical of other’s plans and choices will be edited or deleted.

However, please keep in mind that we do not encourage members to follow unhealthy diets. We reserve the right to remove threads and posts that promote extreme diet methods.

Keeping the above in mind, if you DO ask for opinions on your plan, please be prepared to take the bad with the good. Not everyone will agree with you and since you asked for opinions, you may get them :) No one has the right to post an abusive reply, but sharing a carefully worded differing opinion is okay when asked.
