Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching (NLC)
What is a Nutrition and Lifestyle Coach (NLC)?
As a Nutrition and lifestyle coach (NLC) we can advise you in healthy eating and lifestyle choices to improve your health and wellbeing. We offer strategies for personal change and to work towards a sustainable healthier future using dietary analysis software, body composition analysis, meal planning and health coaching.
We will take into account your food preferences, cooking skills, available time and exercise preferences. We will educates you and find out what motivates you, to bring you closer towards personal change that will benefit your quality of life for the future.
If you want to loose weight, have more energy, improve your mood, balance hormones or want healthy eating ideas that are sustainable and more, contact us for more information on how we can help.
What is involved in a Nutrition and Lifestyle Coaching session?
The aims of an NLC are to produce practical specific dietary, lifestyle and supplement suggestions to empower you to be able to manage your own health after initial help from us.
This usually involves three or more one-to-one sessions between you and your NLC coach, usually two or 3 weeks apart. They can be carried out face-to-face, via telephone or Skype. Additional follow up consultations can be arranged also, if needed.
Once you make contact with us and before your initial consultation we send you a health and lifestyle questionnaire to complete which includes a 3 day food diary for you to fill out as well.
For an NLC to work effectively with you, we need to take into account:
· Your food and lifestyle preferences
· Specific foods/food groups
· Social activities
· Cooking skills
· The time available to you for diet and lifestyle changes
· Stress management
· Computer software
· Body composition analysis
· Hip/waist ratio
· Meal planning
· Ensuring potential nutrient imbalances are addressed
· To include a wide variety of foods and food groups
Over at least three sessions, all this information is gathered and unique goals are set for your own needs. We will also look at specific areas and address your motivation and barriers to change. The third session is a review and future planning so you can sustain the change for yourself.
