What is the difference between a diet and a lifestyle coaching program?

A diet is a temporary and usually restrictive approach to eating, often aimed at achieving short-term weight. On the other hand, a lifestyle coaching program focuses on making long-term changes to improve overall health and wellbeing. The emphasis is on developing healthy habits that can be sustained over time, rather than following a strict set of rules. A lifestyle coaching program takes a more holistic approach that includes not only nutrition but also physical activity, stress management, sleep, and other lifestyle factors that impact health.

What is the Mediterranean Diet?
The Mediterranean diet is a traditional way of eating that is based on the dietary habits of people in countries bordering the Mediterranean Sea. This diet is characterized by a high intake of plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, nuts, and legumes, as well as a moderate consumption of fish and seafood, poultry, eggs, and dairy products. Red meat and sweets are consumed in smaller quantities. The Mediterranean diet is also known for its use of healthy fats, such as olive oil, nuts, and seeds, and its emphasis on fresh, minimally processed foods. In addition to its focus on nutritious foods, the Mediterranean diet also promotes a relaxed approach to eating, with meals enjoyed with family and friends and a focus on savoring the flavors and textures of food.
What are the health benefits of the Mediterranean Diet?
Research has shown that the Mediterranean diet is associated with a lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, obesity, type 2 diabetes and certain types of cancer. This is thought to be due to the high intake of plant-based foods, which are rich in antioxidants, fiber, and other nutrients, as well as the use of healthy fats and the avoidance of processed and sugary foods.

How does the motivational intake interview look like?
The motivational intake interview is the first step towards transforming your lifestyle, improving your health, and achieving your goals. During the intake interview we’ll take time to talk about your history, your current habits, your goals, inner drive, and lifestyle ambition. It is an important opportunity for me to get to know you and understand your individual challenges and strengths. We’ll talk about your diet, physical exercise, stress, sleep, and we’ll identify your needs and desires. We will take your own agenda, job and family into account. I will also carry out a body analysis (fat percentage, muscles and fluid, waist-hip ratio, BMI etc.). At the end of the session you will have gained a clear sense of you current situation, your motivations and goals. You will leave with a sense of clarity and purpose, knowing what you need to do to start making positive changes in your life.
