about this course

A diet is the kinds of food that a person eats habitually. Since a dieting is a habit, changing what a person eats on a daily basis is going to be challenging, just like any other habit.

That is exactly why having a DIET COACH can be the key to dieting successfully!

WHY DO PEOPLE CHANGE THEIR DIET?

When people hear the word DIET, they often assume it means someone is trying to lose weight. However, people change their diet for many reasons.

  • People may change their diet for the purpose of weight management, which can be related to both weight loss and weight gain.
  • A person who wants to gain weight may be trying to build muscle or they may be overcoming being underweight.
  • A person who wants weight loss may want to change the way they look, but they may be doing it in order to manage a health condition, such as cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, or lactose or gluten intolerance.
  • Other people change their diets because they want to change their lifestyle, such as going vegetarian or vegan.
  • And others are seeking to curb a specific food habit, such as eating sweets or snacking at night.

Regardless of the reasons, when a person is dieting, they need the SUPPORT of a dieting life coach. The truth is that most diets fail because it’s hard! Having a DIET LIFE COACH provides support and accountability through the process.

WHAT DOES A DIET LIFE COACH DO?

Diet coaches help their clients:

  • Clarify their health coaching, nutrition, and/or fitness priorities, values, and goals by asking the right questions.
  • Identify patterns, cravings, stress eating habits, and other potential roadblocks.
  • Create a dieting plan, including meal plans and schedules.
  • Identify skills, practices, habits, and sustainable daily actions to stay motivated and follow through.
  • Build lasting habits that allow their chosen dieting to become easy, consistent, and automatic.

WHAT DOES IT TAKE TO BE A DIET LIFE COACH?

A diet life coach does not need to be an expert at nutrition or weight loss (management), as their role is to help a client succeed at their chosen diet, not tell them what to eat. The most important skill of a diet life coach is the ability to help clients set goals and stay on track. In addition, a dieting coach needs to have knowledge of common diets as well as health coaching skills and a deep understanding of the science behind diet and weight management including:

  • Macronutrients (proteins, fats, and carbohydrates)
  • Calories, metabolism, and energy
  • Hydration, fat storage, muscle maintenance and more

That’s why this Diet Life Coach Certification course is designed to teach you everything you need to know about dieting and weight loss (management), as well as proven life coaching training skills and tools for supporting your clients to success. You’ll receive:

  • Baseline health coaching assessments including body composition, body type, BMR, and setting goals
  • Knowledge about common and new diet types, including ketogenic diet, vegetarian diet, paleo diet, gluten free, raw food, fasting and more
  • Proven weight loss and management strategies
  • Life coaching tools for providing accountability to your clients, including how to set goals and track progress
  • Life coaching best practices for connect with and inspire their clients

Plus, you’ll learn strategies for how to establish your diet life coaching business, including creating your coaching packages, running an accountability group, setting your price, and more!

Frequently asked questions

Approximately 10 hours including video lectures and independent completion of worksheets (both required).

Life coaching is a non-regulated industry, so there is no license or degree required. There exists no official accrediting institution or governing body in the life coaching industry. There may be organizations that claim to be an official or legal accrediting body; however, this is false. Therefore, anyone can coach based on their own level of comfort with their chosen training and/or past relevant experience. As long as you are not going outside the scope of coaching, such as practicing therapy (for mental health, for instance) you are free to coach as you wish! It is recommended that any coach who is concerned regarding this matter seek advice from his/her state. Life coaches must be aware of and strictly adhere to the appropriate role of a life coach. Life coaches are not licensed mental health care providers or therapists and must not provide medical advice, engage in patient diagnosis, or treat mental illness or trauma. Also, former therapists may receive legal consequences for practicing as a “life coach” while conducting therapy.

No, we are NOT affiliated with ICF (International Coach Federation) or any other life coaching association. We are an independent Life Coach Training Organization. Contact hours, meaning live interactions between an instructor coach and the student, is required for ICF approved programs. We do not wish to include contact hours in our programs because we believe our students enjoy the self-paced, virtual nature of our training programs and the opportunity to receive high quality education at a great price. Also, requiring contact hours would greatly increase the fees we would need to charge for our programs, making them out of reach for many of our students around the world. We believe in the democratization of education, not creating unnecessary red tape and costs.
