Reach Your Weight Loss Goals By Partnering With A Nutrition Coach

Reach Your Weight Loss Goals By Partnering With A Nutrition Coach

There is an immense amount of diet and food advice available on the internet and on social media. This can make it difficult to navigate what nutrition advice is good, healthy, or will help you reach your fitness or weight loss goals. Having so much information just at the click of a button can be empowering but also overwhelming as you try to understand which tips and advice to follow.

To help navigate between the good and the bad, nutrition coaches offer expert knowledge and experience to help you develop a healthy relationship with food that fits into your lifestyle. A nutrition coach is a health practitioner who helps their clients better understand nutrition and make better food choices depending on their goals for weight loss, building muscle, or just living a healthier lifestyle.

What Does A Nutrition Coach Do?

A nutrition coach educates and provides their clients with support around nutrition and lifestyle. To provide this education and support, nutrition coaches have a deep understanding of areas including:

  • Macronutrients and the roles they play in the body
  • Calories
  • Metabolism
  • Hydration
  • Energy balance
  • Energy transfers
  • Muscle gain
  • Fat loss
  • Digestion

A nutrition coach will first assess what your goals are and then develop a personalized nutrition plan to help you achieve those goals. They will track your progress through body weight, body composition, mood, energy, sleep, hunger, and more to ensure you are staying on the right track. A nutrition coach may also have you work alongside a personal trainer or weight loss coach to help you further reach your fitness goals. Working with these fitness and weight loss experts will ensure that you stay on the right path to your success while giving you the tools to maintain your progress in a healthy manner.

Why Work With A Nutrition Coach?

By working with a nutrition coach, you are making a decision to change your life for the better. You get a coach and mentor all in one who will help you with:

  • Nutrition and food education
  • Identifying sources of stress and how to manage these appropriately
  • Strategies to improve your fitness and incorporate more enjoyable movement day-to-day
  • Encouragement and accountability while you incorporate the habits to change your life

A nutrition coach will also be able to adjust plans as their client’s body changes or as their goals change. Good nutrition coaches monitor a client's progress closely and make program changes based on solid data collected from their client. These changes are systematic and precise as opposed to the guessing game many diets offer when it comes to weight loss.

What Can’t A Nutrition Coach Do?

While there are many things a nutrition coach can do, it is important to keep in mind that they may be limited to helping clients with certain aspects of their weight loss and fitness journey unless they are also a nutritionist, dietitian, or have the certifications that allow them to provide support such as:

  • Creating and prescribing specific meal plans such as weight loss meal plans
  • Recommend medications
  • Provide nutritional therapy 
  • Treat eating disorders
  • Recommend detoxes and cleanses
