True or False? Nutrition strategy coaching only focuses on how to eat and has little to no relevance with other aspects of your life.
I've yet to have a client not be able to describe to me the components of a healthy lifestyle. Their issue was finding a way to create this sustainable healthy lifestyle individualized to their needs. So, that's when I came in and saved the day with strategic and achievable goal setting.

During this process, I learned more about what was hindering my clients.
The most common reasons were:
- not feeling they could make this a priority since they had to put the needs of family/career first
- not having the energy to put the work in and feeling overwhelmed by the process
and the most heartbreaking:
- not feeling they were worth it
Food wasn't the core issue. If anything, food was a symptom of everything else going on.
So I asked this question after I was done gathering data and finding out their blocks:
If you felt better about your health/body image/relationship with food, do you think it would be easier to handle all the other stressful areas of your life?
It was like a lightbulb went off in their head. It all made sense to them now. It became real and tangible. It answered their "why".
Self-care now took precedence in their lives and they were ready to get started.
And in case you were wondering, I've yet to get a "no" to that question ;)
