Is Nutritional Health Coaching Useful and Cost Effective?


I thought this would be a complicated question to answer, but it wasnt. The answer is a resounding YES! It took 20 minutes to find volumes of research indicating how useful and cost effective health coaching can be.

Apparently, nutritional health coaching is a potent tool for helping to manage all types of chronic health conditions. It activates health supportive behaviors and dietary changes, and it is effective for all socioeconomic classes. Considering how much research I found in support of health coaching, I’ll let the research do the talking.

So what is health coaching? Hale and Giesse (2017) define health coaching as “…an intervention that facilitates the achievement of health improvement goals, the reduction of unhealthy lifestyles, the improvement of self-management for chronic conditions and quality of life enhancement.”
