You probably eat healthy, so you don’t need nutrition advice, right? Many people get nutrition data from advertisements or food packaging, which include the information that companies want you to know so you will buy their product; in most cases, it is marketing, not fact.
How about medical doctors; their understanding must be correct, right? Well, they only get a few hours of training (if any) about nutrition in medical school. Health coaches, on the other hand, are taught a variety of dietary theories and are able to expertly direct you to what will work.
How about medical doctors, their understanding must be correct, right? According to a 2010 online survey created by the Nutrition in Medicine Project at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, doctors study and practice allopathic reductionism, and only get minimal hours of training (if any) about nutrition in medical school. One study showed an average of 19.6 hours. Health coaches, on the other hand, are taught a variety of dietary theories and are able to expertly direct you to what will work.
Do you have symptoms? You may have an issue developing. One quote says, “Just because you’re not sick doesn’t mean you’re healthy.” Are you confident that you will be healthy as you get older? The standard American diet contains too much sugar, and, an article published in Scientific American states that our produce is grown in nutrient-depleted soil, which means our food is depleted of nutrients, too. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Americans consume 156 pounds of sugar a year per capita. Officially there is no healthy sugar requirements; it should be minimal.
Never miss a local story.
Poor diet choices affect everyone; they just manifest themselves differently for each person. Having a health coach look over your diet and lifestyle may help you to eat healthy, nutritious meals, whether it’s vegan, vegetarian or gluten-free.
Health coaches are learned holistic advisers who provide ongoing support and guidance as you set goals and achieve them. They listen carefully and help you navigate the world of contradictory nutrition advice.
The programs are personalized to radically improve your health and happiness throughout your whole life. Don’t just treat symptoms; work with an educated health coach to find the cause to what ails you and fix it.
