As a Master Level Nutrition Consultant, you can broaden your role and add value to clients in a number of ways:

  • Counsel clients on basic rules of good nutrition; healthy, wholesome eating habits; and nutrition monitoring to improve their quality of life. With this information, they can be more proactive about making changes that they feel good about and that are supported by research and evidence.
  • Develop individualized plans that address client health history, disease risk, personal goals, and food preferences. Everybody has different needs when it comes to nutrition, and as a Master Level Nutrition Consultant, you’ll have a deeper skill set for assessment and plan development.
  • Communicate how nutrition is part of a healthy lifestyle that includes quality sleep, lower stress levels, and more physical activity. You can tie nutrition together with a number of healthy strategies that all work together to support optimal wellness. That lifestyle might include weight management, athletic performance, or fitness goals.
  • Address client concerns in a meaningful, sustainable way. Whether that means helping them lose weight, creating healthy meals for a busy family, improving athletic performance, or addressing concerns about aging or chronic illness, you’ll have the knowledge to give solid advice.

The Master Level Nutrition Consultant Certification program is made up of four superlative courses, each with its own exam to test your learning.  Complete each individual program in 6 months or less, and all four programs in 2 years or less:
