What is a food coach?

A Food Coach is a Nutrition specialist. They don’t just give you general advice about healthy eating, they also take into account your specific goals, lifestyle, health history and personal circumstances before creating the right program for you. When you work with a Nutritional Food Coach, you’re getting a holistic health service that will give you long term success and ongoing rewards – this means no quick fixes or unsustainable fads that land you right back where you started. Food and Nutrition Coaches take a hands on approach to health, making sure the medicinal, healing powers of food can be incorporated into the lives of every client who comes their way. The overarching goal of a Nutritional Food Coach is to set you up for life, providing you with the tools for a lifetime of nourishment. See how a Food Coach can work with you.
