Gave up a job that could earn lot’s of $ today

I hope you will share!

I have been looking for part-time work at home for a couple years now and came across a great, well I thought great, nutrition teaching job yesterday.  I was so excited as this was going to allow me to teach people how to become healthy, yay, right up my alley.

I e-mailed the guy and we scheduled a phone interview and the interview was going great and all I could think was “how cool to be able to teach on my own time again, and help others.”  Well that did not last more than 30 minutes.  Then the word “supplement” came out of his mouth and he said “this is how we earn our money and you can make up to 50% profit on sales.  Really…seriously…this is not a nutrition class this is a selling job, argh!  I don’t mind selling the right things but I cannot every say that diet supplements is the right thing.

Why would I go on such a venture to do my weight loss naturally, without supplements, and then turn around and try to make money of them?  I cannot morally do that even though the money was sweat.  Besides diet supplements come out daily and are typically not FDA approved and I would never want to be responsible for someone having horrible side effects from something I am selling them.  I guess I have too much of a conscious to do that.

Other issues are that typically when people use supplements for weight loss they do not keep the weight off after they are done taking them and then have to go back on them.  No medication whatsoever is safe to take for the rest of your life.  This is why we have so many small lawyers making a killing off of the drug industries anymore.

Anyway, so I said  no.  Bummed that it is not what I thought but feel great because I stuck to my morals and my own personal journey.  Guess I will keep looking!

    Thanks for stopping by and giving my blog a follow, I will check out your other blogs too, for now I am definitely following this one. I love making healthy choices for myself too and you did a good thing by turning that job down. Don't worry that opportunity, it will be replaced by a better one soon.

    I have taken supplements for weight loss in the past (tried them all) lost weight, gained it back, made myself severely sick etc.

    At one point with the metabolite I got so dehydrated that I almost ended up int he hopsital. You have to keep "upping" your doeses or you feel like you want to crash and burn and you "hunger" for the original effect.

    They are not safe.

    You are right, they are pretty much a strong laxitive. They make you "poop" and "pee" all day long so therfore dehydration is a problem, lack of absorbing the nutrients you eat is a problem and therefore you becomoe long term dependent on them.

    Good for you for standing up in what you believe in! I think that was a great decision since I do believe that taking supplements to reduce your weight is a giant scam. My BF tried one of those diets before and she lost tons of weight really quickly but it was due to the diuretic and laxative effects of the supplements. When she spent over $1000 and decided that she was a her goal weight and stopped, she gained it all back and then some.

    Thanks for the visit. I'm a new follower. I support your decision. I was very tempted by Herbalife but then read that all the weight returns when you stop. So, no thank you! With all your education and experience something is bound to come your way. Good luck!

    I'm returning your follow from yesterday FMBT. Thank you for stopping by. I've been on your same quest of losing weight and getting healthy, but I have Spinal Stenosis & having a bad back just doesn't give me the same advantages as you have. 30lbs in 4 months was it? Fantastic. Keep up the good job. Going to check out your other sites.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for following! I'm in the process of checking out yours.

    Sadly, a lot of home-based jobs involve sales. But I like your ideas. šŸ™‚

    Great minds think alike Allesandra.

    I have been thinking about this all day. Not just an e-course, which is a splendid idea but rather doing my own nutrition and exercise classes at home , supplement and gym free.

    Pondering many ideas on how I can stomp on the supplement world and get people healthy the right way.

  13. alessandra says:

    I was thinking, why don't you organize an e-course, may be people who are interested in losing weight and learn a healthier way of life, would pay for it.
    When you have a family, money has its importance šŸ˜‰
    However I agree with you, never do things that are against your values.
