Becoming a successful weight-loss coach requires numerous different things. The most important aspect of being a coach is having the right education and tools. It is important to note that there is little to no barrier to entry when becoming a health coach. Meaning that any body can add the title to their Instagram bio and call themselves a health coach. Just because someone calls themselves a health-coach does not mean they can produce results.
In our niche results mean safe and healthy weight-loss. We produce results when we help people burn fat and preserve lean mass. This is all done through the Mindful Living Protocol. The protocol is a modified ketogenic meal plan. It encourages people to eat low carbohydrates and adequate protein/fats. The main difference between our protocol and a classic keto meal plan is that we do not promote a high fat diet. We feel that if we give people excess fat in their diet then they will not use their own body fat as a form of energy. Patients who follow the protocol precisely lose an average of 2 pounds per week. If you are looking to start coaching and would like a safe protocol feel free to use ours.
If you are starting a health coaching business that has a focus on weight-loss you will also need to be plugged in with the right meal replacements and scales. Our industry has an abundance of products. Some are higher quality than others. You can check the quality of a meal replacement by looking at its ingredients and carb contents. Think of carbs as the opportunity cost of high protein meal replacements. Meaning a 15-gram protein shot with 1 carb is a higher quality meal replacement than a 20 gram protein shake with 8 carbs. Its important that you promote products that are high in protein and low in carbohydrates. We work with over 4 different manufactures and would love to help you get set up with the best products in the industry.
Once you have the right products you will also need body composition analysis (BCA) scales and food journals. The scales are what allow us to monitor body fat, lean mass, and hydration levels. BCA scales ensure safe and healthy weight-loss. We have one that syncs with our ILIVEMINDFUL app. The app allows users to store all their data in one place, journal their food, and even book appointments.
The last thing you will need as a new coach in the industry is on going support and mentor-ship. The Mindful Living Institute equips all their coaches with a comprehensive coaching manual. The manual goes over all the things needed to help people lose weight in a safe and healthy manner. Coaching is one of the most rewarding careers out there. If you are serious about becoming a weight-loss coach we would love to help you get your feet on the ground. We have created a turn key weight-loss system that anybody can tap in to.
