How to Deliver Habit Based Nutrition Coaching

Help your clients reach their nutrition goals by assigning and tracking habits in Trainerfu.

Tracking calories and sticking to a meal plan are effective ways for your clients to meet their nutrition goals.

Having said that, these methods require a pretty big behavior change and add a lot of work for your clients. Some clients might follow them strictly but others may need something more manageable.

One such approach is to deliver habit based nutrition coaching.

In this style of coaching, you would focus on changing one or two habits at a time for your client.

Some examples could be:

  1. Eating 35g of protein with every meal.

  2. Drinking 8 glasses of water every day.

  3. Eating 5 servings of fruits and vegetables every day.

  4. Avoiding snacks before bedtime.

And once these habits become a consistent part of their lifestyle, you would focus on new ones — and so on and so forth.

This approach may not give drastic short-term results, but it will be very effective in helping clients make long-term healthy changes to their lifestyle.

And the good thing is that you don't have to choose one or the other approach. There is no stopping you from combining these different approaches to nutrition coaching and find a combination that is effective for your clients.

How to deliver habit based nutrition coaching using Trainerfu

  1. Create habits.

    1. Go to More > Habits.

    2. Click on Add New Habit.

    3. Give this habit a name (eg: Drink 8-glasses of water daily).

    4. Add a short description.

    5. Specify when your clients should practice this habit.

    6. Click Save.

  2. Assign them to your clients.
    Once your habit is created:

    1. Click on Assign this habit to clients.

    2. Select clients.

    3. Click on Add Clients.

    Now the selected clients will start receiving these habits in their client app.

    They simply need to tap on Yes or No to track these habits.

  3. Keep them accountable.
    Now as your clients track their habits, you can see them in your app's news feed. You will not only see what they did in a given day but a pattern over the last 7 days. This will help you see a short-term picture on how your clients are doing.

    Leave comments on the news feed to support, educate, and provide feedback to your clients.

  4. Keep an eye on the bigger picture.
    From time to time you might want to see a bigger picture of your clients' habits. You can do that by going to the client's check-ins view. Here you can adjust the timeline to see a summary over various time periods.
