If you’re new to nutrition coaching, you might not have heard of the Level 2 credentialing Master Class. We’re going to make sure you don’t miss out on it, so you can get in on the ground floor of this exciting new industry.

Let me begin by saying that this course is not about ‘starving yourself to lose weight’. There is a huge difference between proper nutrition and anorexia. What I teach is about achieving a healthy weight loss by eating the right foods and working out at the right times.

Today, I want to talk to you about nutrition coaching. I’ve been involved in many different types of health coaching over the past 10 years, from helping people with asthma to helping people with bipolar disorder.  My nutrition coaching journey started when I began working with PN, and I became a Certified Nutrition Coach in 2014. I found that I was a great help to people struggling with weight loss. I found that I was effective at helping people gain and keep weight, and I enjoyed the process of helping others manage their own health. I learned that my coaching style was effective for people to gain weight, but ineffective for people to keep weight off. I was frustrated by this, but I learned that my role as a coach is to

Being a great coach entails being able to assist individuals from various walks of life in a variety of circumstances. Under the supervision of a PN Master Coach, professionals in the Level 2 Certification work on fascinating nutrition coaching case studies in order to improve their coaching abilities. Oh, and kids adore their assignments; I believe you will as well.

“The case study tasks, together with my coach’s comments, are the greatest part of the Level 2 Master Class!”

Professionals in the Level 2 Certification Master Class, as strange as it may seem, enthuse about their assignments.

Consider this before you start yelling “NERDS!”

The goal of our year-long coach-the-coaches mentoring is to:

  • daily hands-on practice,
  • putting new coaching abilities to the test with actual clients/patients, and
  • A master coach is guiding and mentoring you.

And, sure, there is some homework involved.

This is how the course works:

  • Emails are sent every day. Every day, you’ll get an email that summarizes what you should be doing and thinking about that day. These emails will direct you to a Level 2 site with lectures, habits, and tasks.
  • Habits of the day Every two weeks, you’ll learn a new coaching habit that you’ll put into practice every day. These practical experiences will assist you in honing certain coaching abilities in “real time,” in “real life.” On the first day, we go through each practice in depth. We’ll remind you about your habit through email and on the platform every day after that.
  • Checking your habits on a daily basis You’ll be prompted to report whether you exercised your habit every day, and you’ll be able to monitor your progress on a daily basis. This allows you to check how consistent you are. Your coaching mentor can keep an eye on you and assist you with any issues that arise.
  • Lessons and tasks are given every day. You’ll also get a lesson every day in the form of articles, videos, audio files, and/or downloads, which will be recorded in your progress section. These courses include a wide variety of nutrition coaching concepts and information, and they encourage you to interact with them every day so that your knowledge “sticks” and grows over time. Your coaching mentor may also accompany you on your journey.
  • Every few weeks, there will be a short quiz. A brief exam is given every few weeks to help you review important topics covered in the course. It’s less about obtaining a specific score and more about going over what’s most essential and receiving feedback on how well you’re remembering key information.
  • Every two weeks, there will be an interesting case study. We also offer our now-famous case studies every two weeks (a few are featured in this article). Case studies are issues that occur in the real world and are based on actual individuals. By thinking through these situations and putting what you’ve learned into practice, you’ll begin to develop real expertise and the capacity to think quickly. You gain a feel of the kind of issues that clients/patients in your practice may have. You also get to use your creativity!
  • Your coaching mentor will provide you feedback on case studies. Your work will be evaluated by a professional coach in addition to the mental workout you’ll receive from completing the case studies. Your coach will provide you with useful feedback, coaching tips, and chances for development.

When you combine all of this, you’re in for a tremendous learning experience.

As one of our recent Level 2 grads put it:

“Learning how to perform surgery is what Level 1 is like.

“At Level 2, you’re standing next to a surgeon as they assist you in doing your first surgery!”

As one graduate put it,

“In Level 1, the content and information given are excellent. However, without application, it is meaningless.

“Level 2 is intended to guarantee that we put what we’ve learned into practice.“ As I’m pushed to finish each assignment, apply it, and dive deeper with each case study, I’m becoming a better coach.

Surprisingly, the advantages extend well beyond improving my coaching skills for my clients. My children, as well as my other relationships, have benefited.”

We’ll show you how to improve your coaching skills. (We’ll also throw in “being a better parent and person” for free.)

I wanted to share a few case studies with you to offer you a sneak look inside the curriculum.

I’ve included four case studies below. These are just a few of the roughly 20 case studies you’ll work on throughout the Master Class.

I’ll also provide printable worksheets so you can print them and test them out for yourself. Even if you haven’t completed the program, it may be interesting to put your knowledge to the exam and see how you perform.

Finally, I’ll provide real (full) case studies completed by Level 2 students, together with their coaching mentor’s comments.

Whether or not you finish each case study, just reading the answers (and coach input) can help you understand some of this subject in a fresh light.

Consider this a sneak look at one of the Level 2 Master Class’s most talked-about features.

This article may be used in the following ways:

Look through the case studies.

You may choose to read all four or simply the one that most interests you.

The following are some of the case study topics:

  • Case Study 2: Body Composition Analysis Maria, a middle-aged customer, is the subject of this case study. How will you assist her in determining how to assess body fat and the connection between it and heart disease?
  • Case Study 3: Ray Is Too Busy Ray, a time-pressed executive, is the subject of this case study. How will you assist “Too Busy Ray” in finding the time and mental concentration needed to exercise?
  • Lex Transitions (Case Study No. 4) Lex, a customer with a complex hormonal condition, is the subject of this case study. How will you assist Lex in coping with the physiological and psychological effects of gender transitioning? (I warned you that things would become interesting!)

Following each case study, write your answers to the assignment questions.

Our students tend to compose long essays as they go through these thought-provoking activities, therefore there is no word count restriction.

(By the way, our coaching mentors will welcome films, graphics, and other creative methods of recording your coaching journey if you struggle with writing.) Mind maps, comic comics, and photo essays have all been contributed by pupils. It’s all fair game as long as you demonstrate your effort and problem-solving method.)

Take a look at your results.

Check out the example work performed by one of our Level 2 Certification students and evaluated by one of our master coaches now that you’ve had your chance.

Keep in mind that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to these case studies. They’re just meant to start you thinking and demonstrate to your coach mentor how you’re approaching the questions.

The example assignments may not represent the sole “correct” response to the case studies. They’re meant to show you how our coaches offer feedback and to give you a sense of what a good answer could look like.

Balancing Competing Demands (Case Study #1)

Great health, fitness, and wellness experts are more than simply familiar with their customers or patients. They also have a good understanding of themselves.

This case study is the culmination of a series of lectures on personal work habits, coaching fundamentals, and the value of understanding oneself. Students discover how identity and values are at the heart of everything, as well as how we establish and maintain priorities.

To put it another way, this case study is all about you, coach.

You are portraying “yourself” as nearly as possible in the following scenario. Put yourself in these situations and consider how you might react. Use your imagination if required (for example, if you don’t have children).

The scenario: You work as a nutritionist at a big gym…

The gym is a bustling location, and you’ll be seeing customers all day.

This may be exhausting at times. It’s difficult to keep up with the amount of coaching you’re doing. In the face of tough and reluctant customers, it may be difficult to remain cheerful and enthusiastic on certain days.

Of course, the happy and successful clients make up for it. In certain ways, yes.

You’re attempting to study for your Level 2 Certification and further your profession while juggling job obligations. You’re not sure where you want to go, but you know you want to have a solid professional path down the line.

In addition, you have a young family at home, with two little children and a spouse. Your parents are getting along in years, and you try to visit them every now and then, but with your work and other obligations, it’s difficult.

On the home front, all of this is creating some anxiety. You feel bad about leaving the kids for such a long time, and you miss your spouse… Don’t even think of your pals, whom you haven’t seen in a long time.

You drive in from the suburbs to the gym’s downtown site every day. If the train isn’t late, this will take you an hour each trip.

On the positive side, you’ll have time on the train to study nutrition coaching-related blogs, journals, books, and other resources. This keeps you organized — and the distraction comes in useful when there are weather delays or schedule conflicts.

However, you seem to be in good spirits about everything. It’s all part of the process as far as you’re concerned. You’re paid well, and there’s the potential of advancement… someday.

Your boss summons you to her office one day.

She wants to alter the timetable and the staff. These modifications will have an impact on your job. She’s not sure what adjustments she wants to make yet, and she’d want your opinion.

There are a few possibilities.

Option 1: You are offered a promotion that includes a raise in pay. However, it also means working longer hours. You’ll be required to work a split shift, starting at 6 a.m. and ending at 11 p.m. Because commuter trains don’t operate at certain hours, you’ll have to spend the additional money on a vehicle.

Option 2: You move to the gym’s other franchise, which is closer to your home. You’d work normal 9-5 hours Monday through Friday, which would be ideal for your family’s schedule. Regrettably, the salary is less.

Option 3: As part of the gym’s corporate wellness training program, you join a small team that travels the nation giving talks. You’d get to be a part of a fun group of people while also getting to talk about your favorite topic: nutrition! Unfortunately, there is a lot of travel involved, which means long hours behind the wheel and time away from your family. However, you will get a raise as well as the advantage of working more closely with a team.

Option 4: You are in charge of a new project in which you are investigating a new nutrition coaching approach. This will require a significant amount of study as well as brushing up on your current abilities. Nobody knows whether the approach will succeed since it is new. It will require a lot of imagination and ingenuity on your side. If it doesn’t work, it’s possible that your head may be chopped off. You’ll look like a rockstar if you can pull it off. You wish for the best.

Option 5: You take on the position of manager, overseeing the other nutritionists. Because it’s a lateral transfer, the money isn’t much higher, but there’s a lot more responsibility. You get to be the boss of other people! However, you will have to deal with all of the administrative issues as well as managing the peculiarities of other people.

Option 6: You remain in your current job while someone else takes on these additional responsibilities.

She replies, “You don’t have to make a decision right away.” “Could you consider it for a week and then come back to me?”

You’re undecided on which path to choose. “How do you feel?”

She just shrugs. “It’s all up to you.” Her tone then shifts to one of suspicion. “There’s one more thing. Don’t tell the other coaches about it. I wanted you to be the one to take the opening shot.”

She motions for another coach to join her as you exit her office. The other coach enters the manager’s office and closes the door behind him.

You’re curious as to what they’re talking about.

Your task is to

Please respond to the following questions.

Assume that you’re playing “yourself” as nearly as possible in the case scenario, thinking what you’d behave under these conditions.

1. What are some of the difficulties and conflicting demands you’re facing in terms of your identity (i.e. who you are, what type of person you are) in this case scenario?

2. What are some of the difficulties and conflicting demands that you’re facing in terms of your values (i.e., what you stand for, what your priorities are, and what’s essential to you) in this case scenario?

3. Which option would you choose first? Why?

4. If you had to pick between last and never, which would you select? Why?

5. As you went through this exercise, what did you observe about your decision-making process? What steps did you take to arrive at your decision? What were the questions you asked yourself?

Take a look at a previous student’s homework, which was marked up by Master Coach Adam Feit.

Case Study #2: Body Composition Analysis

This case study encourages you to consider how to approach particular physiological issues.

It’s combined with courses on knowledge generation, evaluation, and cognitive abilities in the Level 2 curriculum. To put it another way, how do we know what we do?

This case study requires considerable investigation. It contains links to certain studies that are intentionally rich in content. To make sense of them, you’ll need to put on your “active reading glasses.”

Rather than attempting to know everything, the goal is to filter the material and extract the most essential elements for this specific instance.

Tip: Use subheadings to break up your case study write-up into parts. This will assist you in both organizing your ideas and communicating successfully with your readers.

The scenario: Maria, your new customer, is a middle-aged lady who wants to lose weight in order to enhance her health.

Maria is particularly worried about the link between body obesity and health issues such as heart disease.

She’s curious about stuff like:

  • What is the most accurate technique for calculating body fat?
  • What is the link between body fat and cardiovascular disease?

Fortunately, you’ve just came across a few research that may be able to address her concerns. The problem is that these studies are very sophisticated, and Maria is just a novice with little understanding of diet and exercise.

To be honest, you’re not sure you’ll be able to make sense of these findings either. But you’re ready to give it a go, equipped with your Level 1 Certification textbook (The Essentials of Sport and Exercise Nutrition) as a guide and your own evaluation tools.

Your task is to

Here’s your homework. Make certain you’ve read and comprehended all of the directions.

1. Read the four studies listed below.

2. Review the 7-site skinfold measurement evaluation form in The Essentials of Sport and Exercise Nutrition, the Level 1 certification textbook. That assessment document is available as a fast download.

3. Make notes for the case study. Answer the following questions in your notes:

a) Understand: What are the most important aspects of each research study? What are the main conclusions? In your own words, summarize each research.

b) Examine: What are the benefits, drawbacks, and practical implications of various bodyfat measuring techniques, including your 7-site bodyfat assessment technique? What about BMI, for example?

c) Summarize: How do these research papers contribute to your knowledge of bodyfat measuring techniques when taken together?

d) Assess: If money and convenience were no issue, which bodyfat measuring technique would you select in an ideal world? Why?

e) Put it into practice: What are the most important results from these research that you’d communicate with your new client?

4. Write a screenplay for conveying these important results to Maria and providing suggestions in the last part of your project.

Demonstrate in the script that you have actively listened to her requirements and comprehended her worries.

Remember: She’s a complete novice when it comes to nutrition, so keep your terminology and ideas basic and clear to avoid overwhelming her.

Here’s a good start: “Hello Maria, I hear you have some concerns regarding…”

Now it’s up to you to decide where to go from here.

Case Study #3: Ray Is Too Busy

Students learn how to assist their clients or patients move around and through obstacles by predicting, preparing, and strategizing in the weeks leading up to this case study. Students are also familiar with coaching psychology methods such as motivational interviewing at this stage.

Many of us, not just the coach, can identify with the client in this scenario. Who knows, maybe you’ll use some of the coaching techniques on yourself!

Ray comes into your office, late once again, chatting on his mobile phone…

“OK. OK. I had to go. Yeah. OK. Okay, I’ve arrived. Yes. I had to go. Right. “I’ll contact you later.”

He hangs up the phone. The phone is slung from his ear to his face. Hunched over the phone like a hungry orphan with a crust of bread, taps in a few characters of a text message.

You wait.

Ray eventually slipped the phone into his belt holster. She looks at you. But it’s clear that whatever he was dealing with at the time is still on his mind.

You respond, “Sounds like you’re busy.”

Ray exclaims, “Auugghh.” An exasperated look. Someone seems to be sucking the wind out of him. “I promise, it’s 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”

With a grin, you reply, “Yes, but you’re here now.” (Nice job, coach, on concentrating on the positive.)

With a grimace, he replies, “barely.” “Please accept my apologies; I’m just so preoccupied today.”

And on a daily basis. Attempting to communicate with Ray is like trying to communicate with a glassy-eyed gambler hammering on a slot machine. He’s only ever checked in partly.

Regardless, you must continue to attempt. Ray came to you two months ago after his doctor told him that his blood pressure and triglycerides were out of control. He’s dropped ten pounds so far by making modest adjustments, but he still needs to shed another 40 pounds.

“So…?” you ask. “How did your new food journaling habit go last week?” You’re already cringing a little. You believe you know what you’re about to hear: Ray was “too busy” once again.

Ray comments, “It was fine.” “Some days are better than others.”

Alrighty. This is a good place to start. This is a raw substance that you may work with.

You say, “Tell me what worked.” “Let’s look at what worked for you.”

“Well, mornings are very good,” Ray adds as he pulls out his notepad. Even if I’m in a hurry, I can generally grab a decent breakfast. Super Shakes were a brilliant concept! Recently, I’ve started adding spinach to the mix. You were correct – it isn’t all that bad!” He smiles.

You return the smile. That’s right, buddy.

“But then it goes downhill,” he continues. It’s a hit-or-miss situation when it comes to lunch. It’s a shitshow by dinner.”

He displays his eating diary to you. It is, without a doubt, the quintessential crap show.

“OK, so what happens here?” you ask, putting on your analyst hat. You indicate ten o’clock in the morning. “How about before lunch?”

Ray’s face is expressionless. “I’m not sure. It just… sorta… gets away from me, I suppose. There’s a lot going on right now. I never seem to get a break. And everyone expects everything to be done right now. Kids. Wife. Boss. Coworkers. Even the blasted dog is staring at me strangely.

“So I’m running about, and before I know it, it’s late, I’m hungry, I don’t have anything on hand, and there’s that Taco Bell downstairs…”

He lets out a sigh. “Sometimes, I just wish everyone would leave me alone, you know? I feel like I’m stuck in a rut and can’t seem to get anything done. I feel like I’m constantly on the go, never catching up. It’s all happening at the same time. I simply don’t think I’m going to be able to finish this.”

His phone goes off. “I’m sorry, but I have to take this.”

Ray’s life clearly needs to include some anticipating, planning, and scheming. You must assist him in being more proactive in his thinking and behavior while also ensuring that he achieves his weight reduction and health objectives.

Coach, what do you do?

Your task is to

What are your options now? Fill in the blanks with the remainder of the narrative. What is your recommended course of action for Ray?

Lex Transitions (Case Study #4)

Today, we’ll meet a composite of many customers we’ve met over the years in our Coaching program – more often than you would think.

This example puts a fresh perspective on addressing the requirements of a male client — and the necessity to be ready to coach through complex physiology and behavior at all times.

Lex enrolled in a Women’s Coaching program. Lex, on the other hand, was a he, not a she. At the very least, he was now.

Lex, you see, was born as a woman (i.e. with a female body and assigned a female gender at birth). Lex was mistaken for a woman. Except he didn’t feel that way about himself.

Lex had spent decades in the feminine body he’d been born with. Miserably. To deal with his emotions of social isolation and self-alienation, he overate. He had autoimmune flare-ups, which included joint discomfort, GI problems, and thyroid illness.

It was a nightmare for him every time he had a menstrual period. Lex was reminded that he was in the wrong body by this. Endometriosis, a disease in which uterine tissue develops outside the uterus, causing inflammation and scar tissue within the visceral cavity, was part of Lex’s inflammatory constellation.

Lex has two cats and lived alone. He was either worried or sad most of the time. He was pleasant to be around — courteous, humorous, and sociable — but he lacked deep, supporting connections. He didn’t want anybody to know his secret, after all.

Lex considered ending it all from time to time, but he would never admit it to anybody. Then he’d think to himself, “Who would feed the cats?” This tenuous link kept him connected to the rest of the world. As a result, Lex continued on his way.

He eventually came to the conclusion that enough was enough. What did he stand to gain? He started his transition to living as a man full-time.

He started boosting testosterone via a weekly injection under the supervision of his doctor. To inhibit ovarian activity, he began taking estrogen blockers.

His body fat distribution changed over time. He still had broad hips and smaller shoulders, but he had taken on a more apple-shaped appearance.

Because of the androgenic effects of testosterone, he began to grow a beard and develop teenage-style acne. (He, too, began to lose hair, but he was so enamored with his new beard that he didn’t mind.)

Lex was considerably more at ease with his gender identification.

However, he was still dissatisfied with his health. He now had non-transgendered male health difficulties (higher blood pressure and increased CVD risk), as well as residual autoimmune issues from his previous life in a female body. And he was still binge-eating to make up for it.

That’s how he ended himself in Coaching.

He was undecided on which program to enroll in.

He concluded he wasn’t courageous enough to tell a male coach about his past since he was afraid of being judged. His previous “female” name was still on many of his legal papers (such as his credit card).

He hadn’t yet had his uterus and ovaries, as well as his breasts, removed. His doctor wouldn’t let him have the operation until he dropped weight and was in better shape. But he needed to act quickly since the testosterone was affecting his ovaries and raising his risk of reproductive cancer.

He also knew that testosterone would help him gain muscular mass if he could only get the guts to go to the gym.

What the hell, he wondered. Let’s get this over with as soon as possible.

Lex selected “F” on his application (despite his strong desire to choose “M”) and stated on his coaching intake form, “I am a female-to-male transsexual.”

Lex’s road to rehabilitation and a new life as a man started here. There were just a few minor stumbling blocks along the road.

Lex’s coach, fortunately, was well-versed in the dietary, physical, and interpersonal requirements of trans individuals in transition.

Given Lex’s medical history and current circumstances, how do you believe his coach handled his case?

Your task is to

1. Go through any prior course content that may be relevant to Lex’s situation.

2. Make a list of the aspects of Lex’s narrative that may be important to you as a nutrition coach.

It’s possible that there’s more than you realize. Look for hints in unexpected places. Consider what more you could question Lex about to get a better understanding of his position if we didn’t discuss it directly.

3. Consider and explain how Lex’s situation shows both stress and resilience “life webs.”

Where do the strands meet? What are the major strands?

Think of Lex’s “stress fingerprint” as the hub of a web. What else is there around it? Lex’s stress manifests itself in a variety of ways.

Consider Lex’s tenacity in the heart of a web. What else is there to support and surround that?

4. Explain how Lex’s biological sex and social-cultural gender identification may have influenced his life.

Lex’s personal makeup, as well as his interactions with his surroundings and other people, may be involved.

5. Make a Lex-specific action plan.

Include the following in your action plan:

  • How might you assist Lex in developing physical, mental, emotional, and/or behavioral resilience?
  • What is Lex’s first order of business? What are your top priorities? After that, what happens? Describe the overall order in which you’ll organize and prepare coaching objectives, priorities, and tasks.
  • What method will you use to keep track of Lex’s progress? What indications will you utilize, and why will you use them? What indications may you need to tweak for Lex’s situation? (For example, Lex now has a unique body fat deposition pattern that isn’t “textbook” male- or female-typed due to testosterone usage but existent breasts.) What criteria will you use to make decisions?
  • How will you keep things simple for Lex and help him concentrate on what really matters?

What to Do Next: Some Suggestions from the Experts

1. Take a look at the case study assignments.

If you’re thinking about enrolling in the Level 2 Certification Master Class, take a look at each case study and, if you’re interested, give them a go.

Check out our sample responses with coach comments at the very least.

This activity will offer you a sense of what the course is like on the inside while also helping you to better understand yourself as a coach.

2. Recognize that coaches, maybe more than anybody else, need coaching.

You’re out there in the world attempting to assist others in feeling, looking, and performing at their best. You may even be assisting in the saving of lives. However, this may be isolating at times.

Who will you talk to about your ideas? When you’re trapped, who will come to your aid? How will you develop and grow?

My career — and my life — were transformed when I found an excellent coach and mentor.

It is now my goal to assist other health, fitness, and wellness professionals in obtaining the same advice that I was fortunate to get.

This is precisely what the Level 2 Certification Master Class offers in terms of coaching and mentoring.

3. Take on the difficult instances.

Clients or patients that are difficult may sap your confidence or make you doubt your abilities. However, if you learn how to handle these circumstances, they may turn out to be the most gratifying aspect of your work.

That’s how Master Coaches see it: the more difficult, the better. Because these people provide us with opportunities to learn and develop. They help us become better instructors for future difficult situations.

The case studies below should offer you a flavor of the kind of individuals you’ll deal with in your career, such as the diverse variety of customers with whom we’ve had great success.

So, if you want to learn from our mistakes as we guide you through the Master Class curriculum and assist you along the way…
