Hiring A Nutrition Coach
Hiring a Coach to reach your goals can be a tough choice to make so here is an insight to what I believe to be the “who, what, why, when”.
Before I go on to explain “The who, what, why, when” I just want to stress that all of the programmes we offer are NOT body transformation programmes, we do not promise that in 8-12 short weeks your fairy god mother will have waved her magic wand and you will be staring back at your dream body in the mirror. Adjusting your nutrition takes time and with steady and consistent improvements we will make your ideal shape long lasting.
If you google search ‘nutrition coach” you will be inundated with links to all sorts of awesome, amazeballs, all singing all dancing options. So how do you choose the coach that is right for you?
Get to know the coach.. At the end of the day this is an investment you are making, not just financially but timely. You are investing your time and energy into an idea of helping you feel more in control of your body through the power of food. At Tailor Made we are open about your plan, what is expected of you in order to be successful and allow you as much time or questions as you need to make sure this is the plan for you.
Essentially the plan is tailored to your needs based on the information you provide, our main goal is to make the plan work for your lifestyle by tweaking little elements gradually to help you engrain new patterns that are easy to adjust too.
Basically the “what” here is going to be the plan that is most suited to you.
Do I need a full meal plan?
Do I need a macro plan with food timings?
Do I need just the macro’s?
The idea with our variety of options is that you start with a full nutrition plan, this is where your coach truly gets to know you, your lifestyle and your weaknesses. Your plan can be designed and adjusted for even the busiest of people with the most unpredictable schedule. You will have 24/7 access to your coach via email should you have a moment of panic where you are called into a business meeting, where lunch is provided and you are stuck there, a prisoner for 5 hours!!! Your coach will know when you are ready to proceed to making your own food choices based on your macronutrients given, and this will usually come at the end of your 3 month full plan. During this phase you will still be given suitable food choices with meal timings and still have 24/7 access to your coach should you encounter any difficult moments, this phase will really depend on each individual and how well you adapt to making your own choices, you may excel immediately and be ready for Tier 3… independance!! Tier 3 is all about having the independence to adjust your meals around training all by yourself, you will be provided with macronutrients based on your once weekly check-in with your coach.
Why sign up to have a coach?
There are many, many reasons why I believe it is important to have someone in your corner.
Some of these reasons are:
And what I believe to be most important….. ACCOUNTABILITY
It’s very hard to describe until you know for yourself.
If you are in a position where you know you want to make some changes, you did some research a while back and know what you should be eating, ask yourself this question, why am I not doing it? If you can think of a handful of reasons as to why you can’t make those changes, you are the person who would benefit from having the accountability of a coach.
Do you find yourself looking in the mirror after a “really good week” feeling like you have achieved something and feel like you need to reward yourself? This is where a coach will come in useful.
Do you find yourself spending Monday-Friday living on chicken salad and vegetables and coming to the weekend feeling exhausted and in need of something to make you full again?
