Sharing a assessment of the Precision Diet Stage One certification with my expertise up to now, and the way I plan to make use of it.
Hello associates! Hope you’re having an exquisite week up to now! I’m seeing Within the Heights in the present day with my nana and madre (can’t wait!) and have been learning my face off. I’m about midway by means of my Precision Diet degree one certification, so I assumed I’d submit an replace on my expertise up to now and the way I plan to make use of this certification in my enterprise.
Precision Diet graciously waived my certification price, and I used to be so grateful and excited as a result of I’d been eyeing the certification for a few years. One in every of issues that all the time stood out to me was the concentrate on mindset and find out how to coach successfully and make diet adjustments which might be sustainable and practical for distinctive circumstances and preferences. It’s one factor to create a terrific meal plan, but it surely’s one other factor solely to assist others make lasting adjustments that work for his or her life and schedule whereas propelling them in direction of their targets.
Right here’s how the curriculum is about up:
There are three completely different modules: the Precision Diet strategy (what makes a terrific coach, find out how to create lasting adjustments, and what does strong diet really imply?), the science of diet (WHY issues occur and work the best way they do), and dealing by means of the PN teaching course of (find out how to use all of this data, teaching varied ranges of shoppers, and particular situations).
You learn the chapter within the textual content guide, have the choice to look at a video on their platform (or take heed to the audio), view any related case research, and take an examination for the chapter. You’re taking your examination earlier than shifting onto the following chapter.
The coursework additionally features a examine information to reply observe questions and take notes. The examine information has been extraordinarily useful and I’ll typically use it to make little drawings or writing down ideas I wish to bear in mind. The whole lot is superbly packaged, straightforward to hold round with you (I’ve been learning within the gymnastics parking zone, at dance competitions, and in parking heaps ready to choose up the ladies from varied locations), and primarily based on essentially the most present science and knowledge.
They provide the instruments to create a enterprise, together with on-line assessments and questionnaires for shoppers. I LOVE that they set you up for achievement. So most of the certifications I’ve completed have been like, “Congrats! Good luck on the market!” and this one is like, “Listed below are the entire steps to truly put your certification into observe instantly.”

They solely provide it a few occasions per 12 months, and should you join earlier than Friday, you’ll obtain their Teaching Enterprise Kickstarter Course ($349) without cost.

How I plan to make use of my Precision Diet certification:
I believe it’s value noting right here that I’ll NOT be a Registered Dietitian after finishing this course, and when you’ve got very particular diet wants or circumstances, it’s best to completely search out an RD in your space! Nevertheless, should you’re on the lookout for concepts on find out how to create sustainable adjustments and would really like personalized macro tips, I will be your gal. 😉
To begin off, I’m teaching myself! I create personalized macro tips utilizing their on-line toolkit and primarily based it on my private stats, targets (add lean muscle, lower physique fats, which has gone up this previous 12 months), and most well-liked consuming type (Mediterranean). They’ve a few choices for monitoring macros: you should use particular gram quantities and weigh/measure the whole lot, or you may “eyeball it” primarily based on visible measurements. For instance, a palm is a protein serving, a carb serving is your cupped hand, greens is one fist, and fats is one thumb. This can be a nice strategy to measure as a result of it’s constant (your fingers don’t change measurement dramatically), it’s relative (a smaller particular person with small fingers wants much less meals than somebody who has giant fingers and a bigger physique body), and it’s handy (they’re all the time with you). Once I calculate macros for my shoppers, you’ll obtain the gram quantity suggestions and the visible suggestions (for instance 4 palms of protein every day, 5 cupped fingers of carbs, 6 thumbs of fats, and many others.).
I’ll submit my outcomes and ultimate ideas after I end up my certification, which I count on to be the top of July. Match Staff members can have first dibs on diet teaching and I’ll open up my availability from there. 🙂 I’m so excited to get to know extra of you and add this providing to my present health applications and memberships.
