Introduction: The origin of the term ‘diet’ comes from the Greek word diaita which means a lifestyle or prescribed way of living. This is also how diets are viewed by the team at Nutrition Coach. Unlike many fad weight loss systems, Nutrition Coach programs are not designed as a temporary strategies, but life-long plans of nutritional excellence which will result in permanent weight loss. Additionally, Nutrition Coach programs can improve your chances of achieving a longer lifespan, increased healthspan, and extended youthspan. By eating the smart way, one can drastically reduce the overall risks of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and many types of cancer.
The Chocolate Diet is our flagship program. The Chocolate Diet includes an easy to understand video course series as well as weekly group coaching sessions to help you lose weight in the easiest, healthiest, and tastiest way possible. This program is simple as you do not need to count points or calories at every meals. Also, unlike most diets which force chocolate lovers and ‘chocoholics’ to completely abstain from their favorite superfood, the Chocolate Diet transforms chocolate into a weight loss tool. Of course, chocolate is only a part of the overall food plan.
The Chocolate Diet is includes both an engaging self-study program which will give you a nutrition education better than most people (often including Doctors) as well as weekly group coaching to keep you on track on your weight loss journey. By combining a whole food, plant-based plan with best practices from the psychology of behavior change (as well your favorite superfood), the Chocolate Diet program can help anyone lose weight while eating delicious food.
Until recently, the Chocolate Diet has mostly been a ‘secret weapon’ of a select few. Starting May 13, 2015, everyone will be able to lose weight with this effective program.
Although there are a variety of different raw food plans, the Raw Diet is a whole food, plant-based eating style that involves a wide-diversity of delicious choices that have not been heated above 117° Fahrenheit (47° Celsius). The Raw Diet is an evidence-based system which is founded on peer-reviewed scientific research as a way to enhance health and overall wellness through our food.
Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation about raw foods on the internet. Additionally, some of the concepts about raw food are based on outdated theories, strange ideas, and pseudo-mysticism. From 2010 to 2015, Nutrition Coach founder Thom Quinn began a systematic review of over 40 popular raw food books and over 500 scientific papers in order to align the current body-of-knowledge about physiology, biochemistry, and human nutrition with the best practices of raw foodists worldwide. The outcome of that project is the Raw Diet, a 21st century update of earlier raw food wisdom.
The Raw Diet provides all the necessary macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats), the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), fiber, and phytonutrients which are required for optimum health. It is also an ideal weight-loss plan as it is almost impossible to eat too many calories when enjoying delicious meals of dark leafy greens, colorful vegetables, and ripe fruits!
On August 1, 2015, Raw Diet 2.0 will be re-launched, an update of the original program launched in 2011. The new program will include both group coaching as well as a series of educational videos.
