What is a nutrition coach?
A nutrition coach is someone who help clients to develop and make progress towards their personal wellness goals by empowering them to take responsability for their own health.
They bridge the gap between wanting to be healthy to acutally becoming healthy. Some might think that this is soely related to eating the right foods, but it is not. It also has a lot to do with wiring your brain into a healthier way of thinking. This can then lead to better living habits.
