The truth is anyone can be a fitness / nutrition coach on social media or through paying a fee to sign on with an MLM based company. I’m not clueless to the notion that there is a high volume of other people online who do what I do, so I’ve invested thousands of dollars, time, and research into learning about what the current evidence based studies reveal along with seeking updated certification and credentials.

A large percentage of those who reach out to me are seeking weight loss, and more specifically fat loss. One thing that I consider, that may not be commonly factored into the approach of other coaches or template plans, is if the person is ready for a weight loss phase. Of consideration is current psychological and physical state. The most common issue of a potential client that would exclude them from being ready is having a history of chronic dieting. I will use this write-up to dive into that scenario to help you decide if perhaps a weight loss phase is the last thing you need to be seeking at this moment.
