Metabolism

My health coach sent me some interesting links on metabolism. I though I would share.

Health Coach? Could you elaborate? I've been hearing a lot about life coaches, and have been thinking about a therapist for my food issues... But the 'Health Coach' intrigues me...

My company is paying its employees $200 to participate in a wellness program. They hired an outside company called Healthways and it is bound by the same patient-client confidentiality restrictions as any doctor or clinic. I filled out a questionnaire about my medical history and lifestyle and was assigned a health coach. He suggests different things to for me to try--diets, exercise, supplements, etc.--things to ask my doctor, and checks my progress monthly. He has a BA in Psychology and MSEd in Counseling Education. It's been pretty interesting. My company self-insures its employees. Any money spent keeping its employees healthy is money saved in the long run.
