I've Had a Lot of Nutrition Coaches


The foundation of a healthy relationship with food is built on knowing yourself, establishing a healthy relationship with yourself and getting to know the stories you tell yourself, your fears, your desires and so much more. You can be the most text-book educated person and know exactly what to do but still fail. I did.



Real talk: I have had more than a handful of Nutrition Coaches. I myself am a coach but I have always believed that every coach needs a coach. The better you become at something, whether it be sport or nutrition, the better you can understand it and therefore the better you can teach it.


But, when it comes to nutrition, I have had a "Coach" or gotten recommendations from so many different sources. Templates, remote coaches, one time macro prescriptions, online calculators. If it comes to nutrition and figuring out the "secret answer," you name it, I tried it.


Typically, a coach or template would give me a set of numbers to hit for my Protein, Fat and Carb intake and send me on my merry way. I knew how to weigh and measure, I knew what quality foods were, I am educated and logically, know what to do...this should be a piece of cake, right? Weird, I never was able to stick to "the plan" and hit my goals.


BUT IT WAS SO SIMPLE, what gives? Sound familiar?


It wasn't until I had a coach that asked me what made me happy, what I feared, what my relationships with other people were like, that my NUTRITION got under control.


ONE HAS A LOT TO DO WITH THE OTHER.


You can know by definition how to eat for your goals. You can have the strongest willpower in the world, but there will inevitably be cracks in the foundation if you dont choose to look a little deeper.

If you are like me and know how to eat and have had a coach or two and for some reason can't seem to stick to the program or get the results you desire, have you considered that maybe its not YOU, rather the program that isn't right FOR you?


The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results. Going to multiple coaches, calculators and templates to get the secret magical formula to bring you the success you desire will constantly leave you with the same result if you aren't willing to do a little more work. Maybe it is time to stop wasting your money on the same thing you constantly get, trust me, you probably know all that stuff already. Instead, try something new. Get yourself someone that will hold you accountable, that will help you recognize things about yourself that you didn't know, that will ask you questions that make you think a little harder but also, that will finally give you the food freedom you crave and deserve.


Not sure where to start? Apprehensive about a new approach? Let's talk- I can explain a little more about my experience.
