10 Reasons Why You Need a Nutrition Coach
Nutrition is confusing, and that’s why it’s important to find the right nutrition coach. A nutrition coach will help guide you to understand the best nutrition strategy for you based on your goals, lifestyle and challenges.
You don’t have to be an athlete to hire a nutrition coach. In fact, most of my clients are not athletes. They are busy professionals who want to feel and perform at their best. Of course confidence and looking good exudes confidence, mental strength and desire to be their ultimate future self. Which obviously has a positive impact on their work, family and relationships.
If you are looking to improve your health, lose weight, or just feel better, then you need a nutrition coach. A nutrition coach can help you create a sustainable plan that fits into your life and helps you achieve your goals. It’s not just about weight loss either.
Most clients we work with are looking to improve their lifestyle, have more energy, live well and live long. Many also want to perform better mentally, not just physically. So the ‘performance’ aspect of having a professional nutrition coach helps to educate you on lifestyle and performance, not just weight loss.
As a nutrition coach, and working with clients on building intelligent nutrition strategies for over 20 years, and I can tell you that everyone, and I mean everyone, overthinks and over complicates nutrition. It can be so much more simple than you think. I’ve also witnessed the incredible impact and difference it makes in their lives.
From overcoming weight loss plateaus, figure out what foods work best for me, reversing diabetes to hyper productivity for executives and business owners, to empowering youth and young kids to understand how food and nutrition affects their energy.
If you are interested in working with a nutrition coach, I suggest you do some research and find one that fits your needs. There are a lot of different coaches out there, so be sure to find one that matches your goals and has many success stories of similar clients to you.

Every person is different and has different needs when it comes to food. A nutrition coach can help you figure out what foods work best for you and your body. They can also help you create a meal plan that incorporates these foods while giving you flexibility so you can enjoy life and not feel restricted by specific diets.
- They can help you stay on track.
It can be difficult to stick to a healthy eating plan on your own. A nutrition coach can help you stay on track and make sure you are meeting your goals. They will provide motivation and support when needed, help you stay accountable and help you pivot and get back on track when you hit a hurdle. One of the biggest lessons will be having strategies around events and social life. You can get away with a lot more than you think.
- They can help you develop healthy habits.
A nutrition coach can help you develop healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime. This is an important step in achieving your health goals. Remember, nutrition is just one pillar. It links with other life domains. Treating nutrition as a silo and separate game. You need to integrate nutrition as fuel and apply to longevity, confidence, performance, sleep, energy and social engagement. It’s a life skill in itself.
- They can provide expert advice.
A nutrition coach is an expert in the field of nutrition. They can provide you with valuable information and advice that you may not be able to get from other sources. You can get general content for Mr. Google, however it will always lack the critical ingredients of ‘personalization’ and how it applies to YOU! You are unique, so you need a unique approach.

A nutrition coach can help you set realistic goals based on your current lifestyle and nutrition needs. They will work with you to create a plan that is achievable and sustainable. Most nutrition coaches will dive into telling you to count calories. Although this is a great education that I’d recommend for everyone (when they are ready), there are many ways to introduce awareness and tracking. It needs to be progressive and based on each client. The all in, all or nothing approach just won’t tick, it won’t be enjoyable.
- They can help you improve your overall health.
Working with a nutrition coach can help improve your overall health and wellbeing. They can help you make positive changes to your diet that will have a lasting impact on you and your family..
In Bangkok, nutrition can be challenging for many reasons. And many people when they come to live in Bangkok are overwhelmed with the options and social scene around food.
Bangkok has an amazing choice of restaurants, cuisines and culinary experiences to enjoy. All the amazing restaurant options and especially the convenience of eating out, makes it more difficult to control what you’re eating, and usually over. Street food is INCREDIBLE, but again, it’s almost impossible to know what goes in, also the quality of ingredients, especially the oils and additives.
Just like an elite athlete, surround yourself with the best minds in the industry to help you achieve your goals and perform at your best. Forget trying to learn it all through trial and error and google on your own. But you probably already tried that. It’s a long windy road to frustration.
Take the smart approach and accelerate your results and work with a professional nutrition coach. You will cut the learning curve dramatically and have your team with you to enjoy the journey.
