What is the inspiration behind Nutritious Life Studio?

Keri Glassman MS, RD, CDN is known for her “whole person” approach to health and wellness. This includes focusing on sleep, stress, love, environment and exercise in addition to food. Her effective methodologies have helped thousands of clients but she recognizes that her methods took time to develop. She knows that it is often a struggle for dietitians, nutritionists, and others working in health and fitness to find their footing in the field. As Keri says, “There’s a really big gap between getting your degree in clinical nutrition and then being able to apply it and have a private practice and actually help people. I want to bridge the gap for RDs and also embrace other people out there who are not RDs and are already giving out nutrition information,” like health coaches, writers, personal trainers, nurses, and even parents. Nutritious Life Studio is the perfect platform to help passionate individuals build successful careers based on up-to-date information.

We have students ranging from those interested in learning more about nutrition or perhaps contemplating a career in health to fitness professionals to chefs to experienced registered dietitians.

After you finish each lesson, you will download study materials and resources, and take the time you need letting the info soak in. An hour (if you are super familiar with the subject), a day, a week, a month — it’s up to you! Then, you’ll take a quiz. In order to progress to the next lesson, you need to pass the quiz to unlock the following lesson – so you can pace yourself and complete the sessions on your own time. We recommend completing at least one lesson and quiz per week for a 3-month completion for the Foundational Nutrition and Wellness Coach Program portion, and completing at least one module per week for a 3-month completion for the Master Nutrition and Wellness Coach Program portion – but we give you the time you need to soak up all of the health, nutrition, and business info there is to know!

 

How many hours per week will I dedicate to the coursework?

That is up to you; each person is different! Lessons and topics vary in length. The course is designed so that you can complete each webinar on your own schedule. After you finish each webinar, you take a quiz. In order to progress to the next webinar, you need to pass the quiz to unlock the following lesson – so you can pace yourself and complete the sessions on your own time.

What is the difference between being a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD or RDN) and being a Nutritious Life Master Certified Nutrition and Wellness Coach?

RDNs are the experts in the field of nutrition and have a degree in nutrition, dietetics or public health, with a minimum of a bachelor’s degree. They’ve completed an internship, taken a licensing exam and often specialty exams, and are maintaining continuing education hours, similar to a doctor, nurse or other medical professionals. RDNs work everywhere from hospitals to community settings, in foodservice and in health care offices and private practice to academia. The team you will be learning from at Nutritious Life are all registered dietitians with master’s degrees.

 

With the Become a Nutrition Coach Program you will feel confident that the information you are receiving is indeed reputable, research-based, and backed by a team of experts. With so much conflicting nutrition information out there, it can be tough knowing who to trust. We assure you that our information is cutting-edge and at the forefront of nutrition education.

 

What is the difference between a nutritional coach, nutritionist and a holistic lifestyle coach?

A Nutrition and Wellness Coach works with clients on accountability, behavior changes, education, and incorporating healthy habits that will contribute to their overall wellness and nutrition goals. They are their client’s biggest motivator, educator, and guide, and they help clients through every step of their journey. A Nutrition and Wellness Coach does not diagnose, prescribe, or directly treat chronic conditions, practice Medical Nutrition Therapy, or create meal plans. They are someone who can truly help clients set – and reach – their health-related and nutrition goals. They understand the challenges each individual client faces with their health history and eating habits, and they create a plan to help them overcome their obstacles to make lasting changes in their diet. A Nutrition and Wellness Coach empowers clients to make the best food and wellness decisions to live healthier, happier lives. Nutrition and wellness coaches, through their knowledge, mastery of human behavior, coaching skills, accountability, guidance, and encouragement are the agents of change the world needs to make the planet a better place.

The term nutritionist is not regulated, but someone may receive this title depending on which certification program they take. From The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics: There is no uniform definition for the title “nutritionist,” and those states that define nutritionist in statutes or regulations define it variantly. Some state licensure boards have enacted legislation that regulates use of the title nutritionist and/or sets specific qualifications for holding the title, often but not uniformly including an advanced degree in nutrition. The Academy believes that all RDs are nutritionists but not all nutritionists are RDs. Refer to your state licensure board for your state’s specific licensing act.

  • Scope of practice focuses on food and nutrition and related services developed, directed, and provided by RDs to protect the public, community, and populations; enhance the health and well-being of patients/clients; and deliver quality products, programs, and services, including Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT), across all focus areas.
  • Evidence-based practice that involves complex and conscious decision making based on the best available research/evidence and on patient/client characteristics, situations, and preferences is a tenet of competent nutrition and dietetics practice for the RD.
  • RDs assess the nutrition health needs of patients/clients and develop nutrition-related priorities, goals, and objectives in order to establish and implement nutrition care plans. RDs provide nutrition counseling and nutrition education as components of preventative, curative, and restorative health care. RDs conduct nutrition case finding and make referrals to appropriate resources and programs. RDs evaluate, educate, and counsel related to food−drug and drug−nutrient interactions as well as determine appropriate nutrition quality standards in foodservice and nutrition programs.

A holistic lifestyle coach is (per Health Coach Institute): A Health Coach is a master of habit change, an advocate for living a healthy, happy lifestyle, a teacher of transformation, and an accountability partner to keep clients striving to reach their ultimate goal. A Health Coach does not prescribe medicine or take the place of a medical professional, they are the motivators to push the client toward lasting results and lifestyle change. A Health Coach sets attainable goals for their clients, suggests alternative ways to cope with setbacks, and supports their clients in the unmasking of the true meaning behind behaviors – unconsciously or in reaction to external demands. Health Coach Institute firmly believes that change cannot occur without accountability and sustained motivation, thus the important role of a Health Coach.

 

How limited would I be if I do decide to go with nutrition coaching. What is the boundary for me? What am I allowed to talk about and what am I not allowed to talk about legally to clients?

This is where your scope of practice comes in! A Nutrition and Wellness Coach does not diagnose, prescribe, or directly treat chronic conditions, practice Medical Nutrition Therapy, or create meal plans. This is under the scope of practice of a Registered Dietitian/Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RD/RDN). When it comes to meal plans, we provide you with ready to use meal plans created by RD/RDNs which you CAN use with your clients, as well as food lists for different health benefits and disease states which you can use to make suggestions to your clients as well depending on their food preferences. We also provide resources that many students use where you can access meal plans developed by registered dietitians which you are able to use in your practice.

 

Will I have fewer job opportunities compared to a nutritionist? Does my scope of practice limit me solely to inspire people towards a healthier lifestyle with encouraging words? Am I able to actually guide them using my knowledge of nutrition, chronic illness, autoimmune diseases, etc.?

We do not offer job placement or job finding services. When exploring job opportunities beyond opening your own business, it will depend on the requirements listed in the job description on whether or not it is within your scope of practice. Do not let this discourage you!!! Many students have made jobs for themselves with local institutions/companies/businesses where a job didn’t previously exist by sharing their skills and knowledge. Job opportunities/jobs our students & grads have done:

  • Open your own nutrition and wellness coaching business (virtual, in person). You can provide a variety of services including, but not limited to: Pantry/kitchen makeovers and organization, grocery store tours/assistance, recipe sharing, weekly meal prep services or guides, etc.
  • Work with a local business (pilates studio, gym, yoga studio, healthy grocery store, etc.) to offer nutrition and wellness coaching services to their customers/audience
  • Start a podcast
  • Write a book
  • Host a local news segment
  • Start a food company
  • Work at a local school in their wellness department… AND MORE!!!
