The big announcement!
FoodCoachMe is now Bariatric Food Coach! Same great site with a new name
New name to keep the focus strong
As this new name and branding is released we are in the middle of our Get Focused 2020 Challenge. That is why I feel this name change needed to happen.
As a dietitian with a focus and passion for weight loss surgery patients I wanted the name to reflect this! This website is about post-op patients coming for practical nutrition guidance and support. This is what good coaches do.
What makes a good coach?
A good coach can be instrumental in someone’s life. We have statistics about the impact a sports coach has in the life of a youth. When professional sports teams go to hire a new coach, it’s a serious decision.
But coaches aren’t the ones on the court. The players have to get out there and do the work. The coach is there to guide, instruct, encourage and support. Whether the player is tired, frustrated, excited or even hurt the coach is the one they look to.
Why food coaching?
Patients who have a weight loss surgery are not on their first diet rodeo. They have done this song and dance before. In some ways this is helpful because they know what it is to clear out their pantry, to make changes and to make the plan a priority.
In other ways it makes things that much more complicated. Which diet plan is best? Does the same rules apply after bariatric surgery?
Food coaching is more than just nutrition education and a list of do’s and don’ts. If only it were that simple! Living a healthy lifestyle after surgery is complicated and multi-faceted. When is hunger related to biology and when is it related to emotion? Can you be changing small habits to have better hunger control?
A food coach isn’t the on one the court. It’s the one encouraging, supporting, directing you as you play it out in your daily life.
Bariatric Food Coach has a better fit and will replace the former name of FoodCoachMe.
