Seeing a nutrition coach is a wise alternative. Before determining whether you need a nutrition coach (or nutritionist, as it is called elsewhere), the first thing is to clarify what kind of professional we are talking about. According to the European Federation of the Associations of Dietitians (EFAD), a nutritionist is a person who is qualified and legally recognized to be able to advise on good nutrition, both for groups of people or individuals in good health, as well as those who need a therapeutic regimen. In the USA, it is defined in a very similar way. According to the Dictionary of Occupational Titles, a nutritionist and dietitian is a specialist who uses food and nutrition to promote health and treat disease. He or she also advises patients on what to eat to lead a healthy, wholesome life and achieve their health goals.
If you are one of those who follow many miracle diets and you see, again and again, that they do not work for you, you should know that it is completely normal and that you should not give up. Each person is a different planet, and diets must be individually tailored. The professionals who can assist you are exactly the nutrition coaches; they are not only specialized and qualified professionals with the right knowledge, but they also have the tools to help you achieve your goals. They can assist you with food, but also with exercises and routines every day in order for you to lead the healthiest life possible.
A good nutrition coach will always and in all circumstances help you to obtain and improve your eating habits and will take into account your individual requirements, especially in situations such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, sport, old age, childhood, adolescence, or in cases of diseases with unique requirements, always and in all circumstances designing a plan adapted to achieve progress or maintain a good state of health, depending on the individual.
What are the basic functions of a nutrition coach?
before you know the reasons why you should have a nutrition coach, it’s good to know what their basic functions are.
The basic function of a nutrition coach is to advise on nutrition through different adapted plans, techniques and specialized guidelines for each person, as well as to follow them for as long as necessary until these individuals learn to eat well.
Another of the basic functions of a nutrition coach is to educate their patients about what is a good diet and all the positive things it will bring to a patient. The educational part is therefore essential to be a good nutrition professional.
Similarly, these professionals will also be responsible for assessing the health and dietary needs of each and every one of the patients, making nutritional diagnoses of what each patient requires, always and in all circumstances depending on their state of health.
They are also the professionals responsible for assessing the effects of diets and dietary patterns on patients and for promoting appropriate nutrition. Finally, they must also keep abreast of the latest research in their field related to the field of nutrition.
With all this in mind, here are some of the advantages of hiring a feeding trainer
Food and medical problems
a huge advantage of attending a food trainer is that if we suffer from any nosology that can condition our nutrition, as may be the case of diabetes, these professionals will assist us with the diet, so that our body gets each and every one of the nutrients despite the limitations that the disease can cause us. In cases of intolerances, digestible inconveniences or allergies, the same thing happens.
improve sports performance
The needs of an athlete are not exactly the same as those of a sedentary person. If you play sports frequently, it is quite possible that your body needs a higher amount of protein. The best athletic performance is achieved through good nutrition. Attending a nutrition coach who knows our needs, the activity we do, and the goals to achieve, is a guarantee of success.
Good advice when designing a diet for an athlete is essential to achieve good results and achieve the objectives. Whether they are endurance sports, strength sports or advice for proper sports supplementation.
Being overweight is a more serious drawback than you might think. Obesity is associated with low self-esteem, cardiovascular diseases, increased risk of cancer, diabetes, mobility problems, tiredness, breathing problems, etc.
A nutrition coach will help you lose weight the right way without risking an eating disorder or future medical problems.
