Nutrition and food decisions should be made with individuality, food knowledge, and sustainability in mind. There is no “one size fits all” when it comes to nutrition. There are a variety of factors to consider when choosing food for your lifestyle, such as preference, taste, quality, quantity, variety, activity level, dietary restrictions, dietary preferences – you get the point.
This is where a nutrition coach comes into play. Precision Nutrition Level 1 Certified Coach (Pn1) Angela Tucci believes a nutrition coaching experience should be one that is educational, explorative, and specific to the athlete to take the guesswork out of it. Precision Nutrition’s philosophy aligns with our efforts to guide athletes to achieving their highest performance potential, while putting the athlete’s physical and mental health first.
PN1 nutrition, is a science-based approach to healthy eating that focuses on personalized nutrition plans. It’s different from other programs because it’s not a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, a certified precision nutrition coach works with you to develop a plan that’s tailored to your individual needs and goals.
Through consistent communication and clear expectations, a nutrition coach should serve as a guide to help you make food shifts one small action at a time. Through creating your nutrition foundation, athletes will learn about portions, quality and quantity of foods, macro breakdowns to support their athletic performance and recovery, and so much more.
Every athlete experience with nutrition should be individualized, but the overarching goal of 1:1 nutrition coaching are:
- Improving food intake and quality without feeling deprived.
- Empowering athletes to make food decisions through practice, knowledge, and guidance
- Increasing and improving athletic endurance, strength, power, recovery, and energy levels
- Alignment with athlete’s lifestyle, values, and preferences
- Focus on both short term and long term goals
One of the benefits of precision nutrition coaching is that it takes into account the unique aspects of your lifestyle and body. For example, if you have a busy schedule and struggle to find time to cook healthy meals, your coach can provide guidance on quick and easy meals that fit your lifestyle. Or, if you have food allergies or sensitivities, your coach can help you create a plan that accommodates your needs.
Another benefit of precision nutrition coaching is the support and accountability provided by your coach. Your coach will not only provide guidance on your nutrition plan, but will also help you stay on track and motivated. This can be especially helpful for those who struggle with self-motivation or have difficulty sticking to a plan.
