Demystifying Health Coaching Part 1: 5 benefits of hiring a health coach

Are you feeling out of control when it comes to your health and life?

Do you feel like something’s “off” but you’re not sure what it is? 

Are you feeling guilty that each diet somehow leads to a downward spiral on the weekend?

I know the feeling. You make big plans to get it all figured out January 1st: the weight, the acne, a job you love, finding the right partner.

But good intentions fizzle out after “life” gets in the way: happy hours, weddings, work functions, date nights.

All while trying to sweat it out in the gym, green juice in hand.

Or worse?

Wasting hours in front of the mirror trying to cover up your acne and body with make-up and clothes.

You’ve put on a great face in public but you’re burned out at home when the doors close.

You’re just not where you thought you’d be by now and you’re thinking, what happened?

Sound like you?

Here’s what I've realized all women need (because it's what you’ve told me!)

You need guidance and accountability to get your health (and life) back on track.

No more diets that focus on everything you can’t have. You want to focus on what you CAN have, eat, drink, do.

No more “starting over” on Monday. You want consistency. 

If you’re reading this and thinking, “YES, that’s how I feel right now!” - I got you covered!

 

Here are the 5 benefits of working with an integrative nutrition health coach.

You’ll get personalized care and support.

When was the last time your health professional asked you how you were doing and really listened? A health coach cares about you and has your best interests in mind.

Health coaches aren’t measured on how quickly they can get their clients in and out of the door. Instead, we focus on our conversation with you, listen to your ideas, ask questions and provide advice and feedback.

We’ve been where you are and will climb back into the trenches with you to help you get out. Bonus? Some health coaches even love to give gifts - because, hello! It’s a love language!

Find a health coach who resonates with you and who will support your journey in an open, welcoming and positive way.

You’ll find the right foods and eating habits that work for YOU.

Paleo? Whole 30? Vegan? Keto? Ahh! Working with a health coach helps to demystify foods and diets. You’ll learn the difference between REAL health food and “fake” health food.

The truth? One woman’s food is another woman’s poison. So, you’ll figure out your personal blueprint for eating healthy, nourishing food.

You’ll find the right lifestyle that works for you.

Health isn’t just about the food on your plate. It’s about every component of life: career, social life, exercise, relationships.

Do you ever get involved with a hobby and you're so excited about it that you lose track of time and forget to eat? OR, have you ever been in an awful relationship and you ate food to feel better about it? *raises both hands* 

Eat all the kale in the world, but if you’re surrounded by toxic relationships (or any negative life food), you’ll be held back.

Health coaches take a holistic approach to health and wellness, looking at how all areas of life are connected. Does stress at work cause you to overeat? Does lack of sleep or low energy prevent you from exercising? These are the questions you’ll get answers to when working with a health coach.

You’ll finally take action (with a lil’ kick in the you-know-what when you need it).

What do you think of when you think of living your healthiest, happiest life? Health coaches work with you create specific goals that bring you closer to that vision!

Co-creating goals with reasonable time frames and actionable steps helps you focus on exactly what you’re working toward. You’ll get recommendations and even mini-assignments in between sessions that focus on you taking action. 

Not clear on your big, grand vision of health yet? That’s what taking the first step in connecting with a health coach is for!

You’ll get to the place where you can create a life that YOU control. 

As life happens, your needs will change. Health coaches teach you self-awareness to make the best decisions for yourself in any situation. You'll become your own expert and stop measuring success in pounds, inches, or Instagram likes.
