Community Guidelines

Welcome to the Body-for-LIFE™ Community. This is a growing community where you can post inquiries and insights about the Body-for-LIFE program. Our community is intended to allow you to get your questions answered, share what's important to you, and see what other people like you are talking about. We encourage you to offer support to each other and keep the postings and responses positive in nature. These boards are moderated by our Ambassadors so be sure to check back to stay on top of the latest topics, responses and discussions.

Please note that from this point forward the Body-for-LIFE program will be referred to as "Body-for-LIFE", the Body-for-LIFE community or the Body-for-LIFE web site.

When you create content, you must abide by the Body-for-LIFE full terms and conditions contained here. Remember to stay on topic discussing Body-for-LIFE, EAS and related issues. The Body-for-LIFE community is monitored. This means that all content will be reviewed for appropriateness. Please be respectful and courteous remembering to consider each person's unique situation. You are responsible for your interaction with other members.

Any content that Abbott Nutrition considers to be product complaints may be removed and those considered to be adverse events may be removed as well. In either case, an Abbott Nutrition consumer representative may contact you to assure quality customer care.

The opinions posted on our message boards do not represent the opinions of Abbott, its employees or web administrators.

The Body-for-LIFE Ambassadors are independent advisors who have been compensated for their time but their opinions are their own.

The Body-for-LIFE community is not a place to obtain medical advice. Please see your physician for such guidance.

Promotional materials that serve to solicit or advertise or direct someone to another site for that purpose will not be posted on the Body-for-LIFE Message Board. No advertising or solicitation of any kind will be tolerated.
