What to expect from a session with a nutritional coach?
Nutritional coaches are not necessarily entitled to make you a diet plan. However, a nutritional coach can guide you through implementing one or design the strategies that help you get rid of all that doesn’t let you achieve your goals.
Your coach will most likely involve a detailed discussion of your goals, dietary habits, and health history during your first consultation. Your coach will also ask about your current lifestyle and daily routine. Every session, you will, with your coach’s guidelines, establish a goal and come up with your strategy to achieve your goal.
