How to Be Your Own Nutrition Coach, Part 3

Up to this point, we’ve done a few noteworthy things: in Part 1 of this series, we defined nutrition, it’s function, and gave folks a beacon to strive for. Part 2 of this series was all about assessment, because without a clear understanding of where you’re starting, there’s no way to know what step to take next.

In my last post, ‘About Those Calories,’ I teased something called The BNG’s – Basic Nutritional Guidelines. This is something that I created after more than twenty years of working with folks to have lasting success, not a quick or short-term fix.
