Good health and wellness depends not only on proper physical fitness, but adequate nutrition. To help clients on their journeys to achieve health goals, fitness professionals are adding nutrition expertise to their knowledge base.
A nutrition coach is a health and/or fitness professional educated to influence healthy eating behaviors and equip clients, as well as the general population, to take responsibility for their overall health through improved nutrition.
A nutrition coach works with, rather than for, the client in determining practical changes necessary to current eating patterns to improve overall health. It is important to note that the role of a nutrition coach is to provide guidance, advice, and support; NOT to prescribe meal plans, supplements, or to treat disease.
