WHAT IS NUTRITION COACHING?

Nutrition coaching is the term used to describe the process of a certified nutrition coach providing guidance and advice towards a client who wants to make positive nutritional changes.

Nutrition coaching can be conducted in a variety of ways such as;

  • 1-to-1 consultations

  • Group consultations

  • 1-to-1 food shopping trips

  • Group food shopping trips

  • Supermarket layout explanations

  • Practical navigation around negative dietary temptations

  • Nutrition lifestyle change goal setting and analysis

A common misconception of nutrition coaching is that a nutrition coach is there to prescribe nutrition plans and diagnose any potential dietary issues which may be causing negative health impacts. However, this is not the case. A nutrition coach's primary objective is to educate about the role of nutrition and how you can make your own positive nutritional choices.​
