How can a Nutrition & Lifestyle Coach help?
You get your yearly medical check-ups with your GP, dentist, and opticians. You have your skin checked by the dermatologist and possibly even make time for monthly physiotherapy appointments. However, chances are there's one important appointment you're not slotting into your schedule: seeing a nutritionist.
Your diet is one of the most influential factors in your current and long-term health. But I get it, eating healthy is confusing- complex carbs, glycaemic index, polyunsaturated fats; keto, paleo, vegan – it can be overwhelming!
Nutrition & Lifestyle Coaches are qualified health professionals who use science and data-based approaches to find the right way of eating for your unique body and lifestyle. They study the impact of food on the body, spend their days pouring over the latest research on how food affects our health, and are the best placed to offer tailored advice about how you can improve your diet so that it’s uncomplicated, enjoyable and sustainable.
But we all know that what we eat is only part of the equation. We also need to address key lifestyle factors such mindset, stress, sleep quality and quantity, movement/exercise, and connection. And oftentimes these are the hardest changes to make, they require real effort and can be daunting to know where to start.
As a Nutrition & Lifestyle coach my overall goal is to help clients make positive and long-term changes to clients health. I guide them through the process of creating a vision for their health and well-being, developing a healthy mindset and healthy habits, and encouraging them every step of the way until they accomplish their goals.
Typical goals my clients have are:
Eat a healthy diet: I teach how eating healthily can and should be enjoyable and does not have to be restrictive or confusing.
Weight management: I create tailored, personalised plans with step-by-step guidance, support and accountability.
Increased energy levels: I educate on how following a nutrient dense diet will fuel your body correctly giving you more energy to do more of the things you enjoy.
Reduce sugar cravings: Knowing what foods to eat to balance your blood sugars will help to reduce both sugar crashes and cravings.
Better Digestion: Learn how your diet and lifestyle impacts your digestion and learn strategies and practical steps to support your digestion.
Better sleep: Adopting healthy nutrition and lifestyle habits can have a positive effect on sleep, both the quantity and quality.
Manage stress: Positively managing stress levels has been shown to impact energy levels, sleep and the body’s ability to regulate appetite and weight.
