Nutrition is hard. It’s hard to talk about, it’s hard to execute, and it’s hard to stay the course. It’s said that someone’s fitness level us 80% diet and 20% exercise. Although there is no exact, magic number, the mantra does hold some weight (get it?). In truth, you get out what you put in and if losing weight is your goal, you’re going to have to eat less calories and burn more. The opposite is true if you want to pack on the muscle.
Then there’s macronutrients; proteins, carbs, and fats. Along with this, you have nutrition programs such as Paleo, Zone, Keto, and so on.
In the end, everybody’s body is different and responds differently to the stimulus provided. That’s where one-on-one nutrition coaching comes in. Having a goal is great, but having a plan to achieve that goal is necessary. Hiring a coach to help you with nutrition is like having backup. They’re going to be there to help push you, keep you accountable, and remind you that hard work, dedication, and persistence pays off.
