Introduction to the Course:
In recent years, growing rates of obesity have become a concern due to their direct link to chronic illnesses. Similarly, current pressure to conform to aesthetic expectations has caused a large part of the population to exhibit negative emotional reactions to food.
Since the majority of failures when pursuing healthy eating habits are not due to a lack of nutritional information, it becomes clear that active involvement in one’s own nutritional assessment is the key to motivation and commitment.
Seen from this perspective, nutritional counseling (in this course referred to as nutritional coaching) is a suitable technique through which the client identifies and overcomes their own obstacles. It creates an adequate environment and guides the person towards the attitudes and determination required to make a change in their diet, while at the same time managing to improve other aspects of their personality and lifestyle.
