5 Characteristics of a Successful Nutrition Coaching Client

This may seem like a strange thing to admit but...


Not every client joining me for nutrition coaching will get amazing results.


I am fairly new to this kind of coaching, but I'm already starting to identify the characteristics that my successful clients will have in common.


Here they are:


1. They embrace the long game


The most successful clients will be done with the ups and downs of yo-yo dieting stemming from the "lose 20 lbs. in 60 days" type programs. They are ready for a slower, more sustainable approach. They aren't trying to hit a scale weight by a specific date. They are in it for the long game.


2. They communicate proactively instead of reactively


The most successful clients will watch out for future roadblocks and ask me for advice and guidance. If a roadblock is a surprise, they will contact me quickly to discuss how to manage it next time.


3. They are open to doing things differently


Humans are wired to want to do the same things and get different results. The most successful clients are open to new solutions to common problems. They have an open mind.


4. They use failure as feedback and keep their emotions in check.


The most successful clients view failure as an opportunity to learn and grow. They use it as valuable data that can help them achieve their goals.


5. They lean into the boring, simple, day-to-day difference-makers


I'm talking about grocery shopping, meal prep, walking, stress management, proper sleep, journaling, and exercise.


Social media often tells us about the next magic bullet solution, which is often an inflexible set of unsustainable rules with some kind of twist.


But the reality is that the "boring" daily habits will create 99% of the results you desire.


The most successful clients will embrace the mundane and appreciate its simplicity.  

If you're considering working with me but wonder if you will be successful, I suggest you review these five characteristics and ask yourself if you can embrace them. If you can, we can be successful together.


Thanks for reading.
