I believe I would like to do counseling for children/teenagers. I'm still "undecided" at this point though. What do you do?

I googled "are ideal protein salt and vinegar chips restricted" and every page that came up says they are not restricted.

Anyhow, that's true Ruth Ann, it isn't necessarily the way to go but if he is feeling crappy and not losing and nothing else can be figured out? it could be this...
My doc said when I asked about this (because my mom & dad have to watch their blood sugars (dad has pills)) that he would like to make sure they are not 'cold turkey' first and use the alternative plan so that they are getting enough sugars and don't have the shock with the medication as things change, then he can recheck and readjust meds. It probably depends on your BS levels and meds too. not bs as in: but blood sugars, lol.

There is soooo much in your body that can alter this reading. We used these in my kinesiology classes. We actually had a lab that used this, a caliper and bmi to test which we thought was most accurate. On most people the caliper was the best measure of the things we had available. That can vary depending on the level of skill the person doing it had. One thing to remember about bio-impedance is that it can only measure a short way. So unless you have electrodes all over the body it can only measure what is closest. So one you stand on gives more of a measure of lower body and one that is hand held will measure upper body. It is also very, very, very dependent on hydration measure. They say scale weight should be done first thing in the morning and bio impedance should actually be done at the end of the day. Most people do not drink a gallon of water before weigh in, so your water levels are probably down when you get measured.

Also, body fat does not change a whole lot week to week. It is actually a measurement that should be done less frequently.

Thanks for the great explanation! I'm still confused by a coach thinking she's doing something wrong when she lost 3 pounds that week.

I do trust him, I mean he is in it for the right reasons, he's a chiropractor and is pretty big on health. We have had very few issues other than that he's definitely got strong feelings about only using IP stuff but that's natural for all the coaches. I'm not saying anyone is wrong or right I'm just saying it makes me nervous lol I guess I will still just think they are restricted in my head
Amber..there is a "hotline" at corporate which is accessible via phone or email for office professionals. My office GRACIOUSLY used that avenue more than once to get the holy grail of an answer for me...

Maybe ask them to do that...humbly admitting to them (to gently massage their ego)...you are aware local office practice advice may hinge on what they have seen in most of their patients which you do think is valuable....BUT ..you would still like both pieces of information...
(A-hem...you are paying for it....)

Oh no....more do-gooders! (LOL)

I'm a licensed clinical professional counselor and registered art therapist. My hours make healthy eating a HUGE challenge. The stress of my early jobs also increased my weight/emotional eating.

The coolest thing I can bring to my clients since being on IP for 2 weeks is the amazing shift in my mood! I always tell my clients that healthy eating is a natural anti-depressant but never could do it myself (ie: my version of a doctor who smokes).

I've been IP for 3 weeks and your right the change in my mood has been incredible. I think I've always put everybody ahead of myself and now I'm finally putting myself first.

Quick question for those who use Maple Grove Sugar Free pancake mix - where do you buy it?

I have found it online, but I'd like to avoid shipping charges. I have heard some of you mention buying it at the grocery store... where are you shopping? I have checked my local Publix, Super Walmart, and Super Target, and they don't carry it. (I checked in the natural baking products, and also with the conventional pancake mixes.) I checked the local health food store, and they didn't carry it either.

It could just be these stores in particular, so I'm going to check a few other locations while I'm out and about. I find it hard to believe that it isn't available in the entire area.

Thanks for your help!

I am so excited today after being stalled for 6 weeks the scale has finally dropped 2.4 lbs. I am now in my 130's and one pound away from loosing 15lbs. It has been a long battle with the scale but I stuck with it and it paid off.

WOW. Your job sounds AMAZING. Over the past few months, i've considered making healthy eating part of my career. During yoga yesterday, I was thinking of how much it would cost to go back to school for dietetics and become a food counselor/dietitian....what a rewarding career you have! I wish my current one was more rewarding.

Hey everyone!
I was hoping to get your opinions on something. For the past week I've been hungry more. I've been eatting all of my required foods and water. I don't believe my activity level has increased so I'm wondering why the hunger? I have chosen to have a additional unrestricted item rather then something off of plan, but still it's more than what you "should" eat on Phase I (alternatives).
The other night I'm saying my prayers and making a mental decision to elminiate this additional item but, the scale has gone down 4 lbs and I still have two days to go before my weekly weigh in! How would you analyze that? I normally have 2-3lb losses a week. Is this just a fluke and I should elminate the extra unrestricted item or do you think the extra protein, calories, carbohydrates are helping?

I want to remain sucessful and meet my goal. I've come a long way, this means alot to me. Please let me know what you think, I woud appreciate it.

We women are TERRIBLE at putting ourselves first! It got worse for me once I had kids, too. I was taking care of my clients, my kids, my hubby...but DEFINITELY not myself. I was trying to "quick fix" myself with frappucinos, brownies and French fries.

My mood has been amazing since getting rid of all sugar. I didn't even have the sugar withdrawals I always heard so much about! I shudder to think how sick I have made myself. Blech.

Wow, thanks for helping me appreciate it! I am very fortunate to have a career that is so family friendly and lets me do what I love to do anyway (which is to talk and be with people!).

There are counselors of many kinds: hairdressers, bartenders, sports coach, IP coach (I can only imagine). It sounds like you have that heart in you! I hope you can find a way to use it!
