Frequently Asked Questions
Nutrition coaching involves an individual working with a credentialed certified nutrition coach or registered dietitian to develop skills that pertain to their own personal nutrition and diet behaviors and choices. Traditionally, individuals that wanted to improve their diet would work with a registered dietitian in person and after an initial consultation, follow a diet plan for a finite amount of time, perhaps meeting again on a scheduled cadence. The nutrition industry has evolved, technology has made the world a smaller more connected place, and online nutrition coaching has become an amazing solution to pair individuals up with professionals without having to get into a car and drive into a meeting. This same technology has also allowed the support side of the relationship lightyears better; more frequent, more engaging, and more real.
Nutrition Coaching can and should be equal parts educational and transformative, and that is our mission at Falcon Nutrition. We want to help you make the changes you’re after while educating you every step of the way so that you get to a place of self-efficacy and feel very comfortable and confident handling your nutrition no matter how your goals change or where you find yourself.
Yes! Please include that detail when filling out your questionnaire and your coach will create macro targets customized for you taking your dietary preferences and any special considerations into account. When it comes to counting macros, there are no foods that you HAVE to eat and there are no foods that you can NEVER eat!
First step upon joining is an onboarding call with your coach. This is where your lifestyle audit takes place. Your coach gets to learn about your day to day life; your 9-5, your evenings, family and social life. With this glimpse into how most of your days and weeks look, and what they require of you, your coach comes up with a gameplan tailored to you and your lifestyle, and constructs a system of daily habits and a nutrition protocol that works with your lifestyle.
From there, you will learn to measure what’s coming in so we can manage what’s coming in. Your nutrition targets may include things like calorie ranges, macro nutrient targets, a flexibile approach with both of those to be used at different times, or something more like food group focus and getting a feel for what’s coming in without precise measurements. Going back to step 1, the lifestyle audit, our goal is to find a way of doing things day to day that both works with your lifestyle but also gets you results and builds lifelong skills and habits.
Depending on coaching membership level, checkins may be done via messaging within our app, or via video call. Your coach will reach out to you throughout the week in between checkins to support you and help you stay on track with both accountability and encouragement. You have open access to your coach so outside of them engaging you, they are your partner on your journey to utilize as needed. We encourage questions and interaction; the more dialog taking place, the more opportunity to learn and solidify these lifelong skills!
Your coach will change up your nutrition targets or habit specifics as often as needed to ensure you are making progress and feeling good every step of the way.
At the time of your onboarding video call, you and your coach will come up with a day and time for your standing weekly video call to connect and discuss the prior week, victories and struggles, adjustments and focus areas for the week to come, plus any other relevant discussion based on how things are going.
In between weekly video check-in calls with your coach, you will receive text messages that keep you engaged and accountable ongoing throughout the week.
