Florida Woman May Face Jail Time For Her Diet Tips
- Oct 11, 2017
Florida was back at it this week with ridiculous licensing laws, this time coming from the state itself. Heather Kokesch Del Castillo is a privately-certified health coach who previously worked in California giving diet and nutrition advice. Her husband was recently transferred to the military base in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, where Heather was promptly faced with a $750 fine and threats of more fines and even jail time if she continued her practice in Florida. The reasoning? Heather isn’t a licensed dietitian in Florida– so the state is prohibiting her from giving advice about what people should eat.
