Nutrition & Wellness Coaching Q & A

What Does Nutrition Coaching Focus On?

Nutrition is one of the building blocks of a healthy life. Poor nutritional habits can mean the difference between a healthy body and one that suffers from constant aches or illness. Nutritional coaching is a way for you to learn the best practices of proper nutrition and incorporate them into your daily life. With your doctor’s support, together you will find the right plan unique to your health and lifestyle. These nutrition coaching sessions are generally one-on-one with a focus on your nutrition needs, diagnosing food sensitivities, lifestyle, and possibly behavior modification. The overall goal is to use nutrition to prevent and control diseases, and promote a healthy lifestyle that is easy to follow. Some of the specific issues that may be addressed are:

  • Diets and food plans for specific medical conditions
  • Heart health (hypertension, elevated triglycerides, high cholesterol)
  • Metabolic health (diabetes, PCOS, insulin resistance, hypoglycemia)
  • Food sensitivities, allergies and intolerance
  • Obesity and weight management
  • Crohn’s disease/ulcerative colitis
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Individualized meal plans
  • Lifestyle management
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Macronutrients
  • Sports nutrition
  • Kidney disease  
  • Celiac disease

What is a Wellness Coach?

A wellness coach works with an individual who wants to make changes in their lifestyle to optimize their health but they are unsure where to begin. Your wellness coach will sit down for a consultation with you to help you make better choices that fit your lifestyle. It is a collaborative effort between you and your wellness coach to find the right plan of action to reach your goals. Together, you and your coach will discuss what challenges you may have had in past efforts and what actions were successful. From there, you will set goals that support your personal needs. Wellness coaches help you to stay motivated and accountable on your road to optimal health.

What Should I Look for in a Nutrition or Wellness Coach?

Your coach should be someone that you trust and are comfortable sharing your journey of health and wellness with. Because you will be spending a lot of time together discussing your goals, you should find a coach that is a good match for your own vision. They should be able to empower you to take initiative and you should feel strongly that they can help you achieve your goals.
