    how or where to find a good online nutrition coach?

    Hello,

    I've been looking around and found it very difficult to find good reliable online nutrition coaching sources. Do you all have any recommendations for any coaches or sites to refer me to?

    They can be rather hit and miss.

    I've read your other posts - and I doubt this is going to help you. A good nutrition coach will tell you essentially the same thing we've been saying. A bad one will get you doing all kinds of crazy diets claiming that this is necessary for you to achieve your goals - but ultimately, if they don't succeed in getting you to reduce calories below your maintenance level, you won't lose any weight...

    Online coaching won't be any more help with your counting. You're asking people to accept things we know can not be true. A good coach will have just as hard a time believing it.

    I think I suggested taking a diet break to see if you drop retained water. Have you tried that?

    "I drive 50 miles every day but I only fill up on gas once every 2 months." None of us has any insight into your life where any of a hundred things can be occurring leading to your situation. We only know your assertion doesn't add up.

    Heaven help the coach that takes you as a client.

    I recently fielded a question from a department head. Her employees were being overpaid and she wanted to know why. I asked her a bunch of questions. Regular hours correct. Yes. Holidays and vacation? Yes. Unpaid leaves? Yes. Stand-by pay? Yes. Callback? Yes. Overtime? Yes. I finally had to sit down with her and run a report and review line by line. She hadn't coded holidays like she said had. Problem solved. This is relatively simple and we still had to meet face to face because she insisted she did everything correctly.

    You're overlooking something and it's a big ask to review your entire life on a forum to find where you're going wrong.

    ok....now that I get...I totally understand not being able to cover everything here, I totally get you only have the minimal information I've given, I get that. What pisses me off is the assumption that I'm lying to everyone (what is there to gain) or I'm completely stupid. While I will confess I'm no Genius, I'm not an idiot either. I'm wondering if my metabolism is jacked. My wife is a competitive Bodybuilder, and has a personal trainer and follows a very strict diet. With that I am pretty familiar with counting calories. My original question on my other post was.....is it a bad Idea to go below 1500 cal. well, there was some not so nice but at least straight forward suggestions....which I took. i cut out my tuna sandwich's which lowered my calories to 1200. which is actually lower than my wifes, so I understand how it sounds...its just true.

    My opinion is that it doesn't matter. If you're absolutely correct in your counting, you're maintaining at 1500. Dropping to 1200 doesn't represent an outrageous decrease.
