How would it feel to really understand nutrition? To know exactly what and when to eat in order to achieve any goal that you had? To be able to learn how to do this from your own home, in your own time, around your other commitments? To always have a trustworthy and evidence-based manual to which you could refer for the rest of your life? To be able to know whether something else you read online or heard was to be believed? To have the option of going on to learn how to help others do the same?
During our interactive animated and presented online course you will gain a real understanding of the science and application of sleep, stress, calories, macro and micro nutrients, supplements, behaviour change, fibre, hydration, and more.
Our students have described nutritional mastery as ‘empowering’, ‘liberating’, and ‘game-changing’ because their new understanding leads to confidence both with their personal nutrition, and within their coaching practice.
That’s their story, but what would it mean to you?

ModulesModule 1: Fundamental principles of weight management
This module comes in two parts and discusses the final two parts of a healthy diet starting with hydration. How much water do you need, why, where does it go and what does it do in your body that is so important? More interestingly, what role do salts have in all of this and how does your body make sure there is always enough?
Next up is fibre. We talk you through all of the different forms of fibre and where they are found in your food before explaining exactly what it is that fibre does that is so important. Everyone says fibre is a good thing; and it can’t just be about bowel movements, right?
It’s not enough to know what you should eat in order to reach a certain goal, you also need to know how to do that. This module walks you through UK food labels, what everything means and how you can assess the suitability of a food to your overall plan.
We then go into the ways that you can portion food up on a plate to make sure you get all you need. Nutrition isn’t just macronutrients and calories, it’s buying, serving up and eating food; and you need to know both sides.
FAQsHow long will it take?
