I was watching a weight loss TV show tonight and I couldn't wait to hear what the trainer would tell the person about her diet. Naturally, it was calorie focused. They were giving her ideas on what to eat and one of those options was low carb, "whole wheat enriched" tortillas. Ugh.
Then, her goal was to lose 60 pounds in three months. After three months, and "only" 24 pounds lost, there was obvious disappointment from the trainer on the "lack of good progress." Then, she was instructed to really increase cardio intensity. I would have been ecstatic if I saw that I had lost 24 pounds but nooo- the trainer basically squashed any excitement with the fact that she didn't meet the goal set for her.
This really brings back memories of when I had a trainer. So glad I don't have to listen to that advice anymore!
