@Mrs.SplatterPaint:  yuck, that worries me that even when your contract is up, you still won’t get rid of him.  I’m betting he comes up with some special “deal” contract to keep your husband as a client.

“Personal trainers are experts on how to get the best physical results through exercise. To support their efforts, the benefit from consulting with an expert in sports nutrition is that the client will be the best they can be, and be sure that the information they receive is accurate and personalized for their particular health and fitness goals.”

“Trainers are able to make informed suggestions and help lead clients in the right direction. These suggestions could be things like: consider more whole grains, switching to leaner proteins, adding more fruit to your diet, etc.

What you can and should do is align yourself with a qualified sports nutritionist who can complement your area of expertise when a specific nutritional condition may arise with a client, so you are not working outside the scope of practice, but rather aiding in client success.”

I’d start withholding sex until your husband gets a clue.

 

I hope to god he doesn’t re-up in May. Something tells me this dude isn’t done yet.

I’m going to be blunt, both the trainer and your husband are ignorant.  Honestly, if my SO was telling me how many calories I should be eating, I’d tell him to STFU.  Not cool.

@KristenGotMarried:  I respectfully disagree– withholding sex is just blackmailing him to do what you want, not actually changing his mind, educating him, or building a stronger relationship.

haha Okay girls, my comment was made in jest.  I realize sarcasm doesn’t come through text very well, but I wasn’t serious.

@Roe:  Agreed.

OP, pardon my French but your trainer is a fucking idiot and your Darling Husband is doing you a disservice by listening to this guy.

My Fiance is a professional athlete. He has to make weight for his sport, and he knows more about diet, exercise, and nutrition than anyone else I have ever met. Even when he is cutting weight, he eats more calories than your trainer is suggesting. What he is trying to get you to do is unhealthy and unsustainable.

You only weight 117 lbs! How tall are you if you don’t mind me asking? If you are average height or a little on the short side,  you are at a perfectly healthy weight.

If I were you I would give this guy a scathing review on every website I think of, because some poor girl with a bad self-image is going to buy some sessions with himm and end up with an eating disorder. This guy is actually kind of dangerous.

I’d be more concerned that your husband doesn’t have your back with a person paid to offer you a service than what the bonehead crap the trainer says.

@Mrs.SplatterPaint:  What he says works because it is drastically bad for you and starving your body and what unhealthy body builders use for quick fixes.

And yes, that’s taking sides.  He should be willing to listen to your argument, to a doctor’s argument, to another nutritionist and trainer’s argument.  

But more importantly that all of that, even if he doesn’t want to learn about your side or take your side, he shouldn’t let trainer come run to him to complain about you.  “That’s something you have to work out with her, I don’t want to be involved.” is all he has to say if he really is in the middle.

@Mrs.SplatterPaint:  Wow. 5’1″ and a size 2 pant and this guy is telling you to starve yourself and lose 5 pounds? That should be enough right there to show both you and your Darling Husband that he is a lunatic.

@bookworm88:  Agreed on all accounts. Of course you’ll lose weight if you starve yourself! You don’t need to be a “personal trainer” to work that one out.

I agree that, at a minimum, he should stop letting this trainer address his so-called “problems” with him and refer all questions/concerns to you. He’s not your boss and you don’t need his permission to make a decision about this. If he can’t grow a pair and support you, he can at least defer to you when it comes to your misgivings about this asshat.
