It's a personal choice. I'm here three months and have never had a health coach though I know some who have. If you're considering one read the blogs and boards and see who comes recommended. I still order VIP direct off the site, it works fine for me right now..
Well, we cant talk about "pricing" and other services like that, but Im sure that some health coaches on here will contact this thread!.
Psoh and this Medifast diet is a wise choice hope you stick with it!.
It's totally up to you. Here's the website- You can probably decide based on the info which you'd prefer:.
I was referred to a very nice lady from a very nice lady and just wanted other opinions. Any opinions are greatly appreciated even if it's not for pricing..
It's harder to find a really knowledgeable HC than you would think. TSFL allows anyone that can pay the fee and take an open book test to become a HC. Many of these people are new to Medifast and have no idea how the plan even works. They do it because they get a percentage of their clients purchases through them. If you are looking for some one on one assistance, look for a coach that has been successful with MF, preferably one that is already in transition. Otherwise, these forums are a great source of information and support..
TSFL's Be Slim Club (same principal as MF's VIP) does offer you discounts the more you order. You do NOT need to have a coach to befefit from these discounts..
Other than the discounts of the Be Slim Club, the price of the food is the same as from the Medifast site..
The cool thing about a health coach, if you have one that knows what they are talking about, is that they can support and help you instantly. I am a health coach, but I agree that it's just a personal choice if you need extra support to follow the plan, transition and then go in to maintanence. But def. find someone that has done the program, is helpful and isn't after you to sign up and then leave. It's important that the support is there and helpful. I don't need the money, but I do find GREAT satisfaction in helping people lose weight since I have struggled with it my whole life. Hope that helps! Sarah.
I joined TSFL and got my health coach through a friend. It doesn't cost anything for my health coach. She gets paid by TSFL by getting a certain percentage based on the food I order. My coach is great but it is true that you don't have to be an expert to be a coach. So, if you decide to get a coach, choose a good one..
