Frances Morrison- Morrison Fit For Life
Have you ever had a client who despite doing all the right things, didn’t make the progress that they hoped for?
In many cases, we know that losing weight or achieving a health goal is more than just about the diet, and we recognize that.
It’s why we have developed this unique program that has a focus beyond nutrition and looks at whole-body health, with a special focus on healthy digestion.
As you progress through the NNC Program, you will come away with a better understanding of what additional factors you may want to consider; and help your clients achieve the results that they want and deserve, bringing you more referrals!
When You Enroll to Become a Natural Nutrition Coach®
You will learn how to:
- Help your clients develop the habits they need to create long lasting change, and get the results they want and deserve.
- Understand the additional factors to consider when the client is doing “everything right” and not making progress.
- Implement effective coaching strategies that considers the whole body, because as Holistic Practitioners, we understand that it’s never just about the diet!
It’s the Foundational Program That Will Get You Started in Nutritional Consulting!
Learn Individualized Nutrition Strategies for Your Unique Clients!
The Natural Nutrition Coach® (NNC) Certificate program is designed to teach you the principles of healthy eating and individualized nutrition. Every person’s body is unique, but the basic principles of eating healthy and whole foods apply to everyone.
The Natural Nutrition Coach® program provides a foundation for implementing a natural foods diet as a primary modality in the pursuit of health and the prevention of chronic disease.
The course is a combination of textbook reading (downloadable PDF’s), in 6 Modules, videos, and a brief quiz following the completion of each module to test your knowledge! At the end of the course is a multiple-choice exam (pass mark: 80%).
Nutrition With a Focus on Healthy Digestion
This Module introduces you to a different approach to food and eating. For too long, we’ve used food as a tool to achieve specific goals based on measurements by counting calories and weighing food to achieve an optimal weight. In this course, you’ll explore a new perspective—that food is a source of life- and health-sustaining nutrients, and that its purpose is to nourish all physical and mental aspects of your health.
Texts: Section 1 and Section 2
In Module 2, you will learn how to integrate the teachings from Module 1 into real-world settings. You will learn healthy meal preparation and cooking short-cuts, what to eat at a restaurant or when you’re on the run, and how-to super-charge meals with nutrients to get the most out of your food. Labels and other interventions designed to help you and your clients make healthy eating choices will be explored.
Texts: Section 3 and Section 4
What Causes Food Cravings?
Recommending Nutritional Supplements
You aren’t just what you eat—you are what you absorb. An under-active digestive system generally results in the poor absorption of nutrients, and long-term malabsorption can lead to chronic health problems. In Module 3, you’ll learn how the digestive system works and why problems can so easily arise, leading to constipation, heartburn and indigestion, or chronic illnesses of the digestive tract. You’ll also learn how these concerns may be prevented with food and behavioral interventions.
Texts: Section 5 and Section 6
A Journey through the Digestive System
Stress can take a toll on your health, and that toll can have lifelong consequences. Module 4 explores the physiological implications stress has on your health, including your weight, and explores the various foods, nutrients, and other interventions that can help your body cope with or recover from long-term stress.
Texts: Section 7 and Section 8
Sound Sleep Strategies
Coaching for Long Lasting Results
The Natural Nutrition Coach® Program Includes the Module “How to Effectively Coach Your Nutrition Clients”
And… to help you implement your natural nutrition knowledge, in Module 5, we show you how to effectively coach your nutrition clients, so that they achieve the long-lasting results that they are looking for, which brings you even more referrals and helps you to build your business!
Just Some of the Topics We Cover in the Coaching Module :
- How Clients are Motivated, and Habits are formed.
- The Stages of Change and how you can help your clients progress through them, so they don’t get ‘stuck’.
- Setting SMART goals.
- Building Rapport.
- Effective and Motivational Questioning Techniques and what questions to ask.
We also take you through an entire coaching session flow and show you how to conduct an effective coaching session. We even provide sample coaching contracts which you can edit and personalize for your own Practice!
Jumpstart Your Nutrition Practice!
Even before you graduate, it is never too soon to think about setting up your coaching practice – in fact, we recommend that you start looking into the essentials of running a nutrition business early on! The reason is that it can take time to set up a business and there are a lot of moving parts to it. The sooner you can start your social media and networking with like-minded professionals, the more successful you will be! Lynne Faires from the Holistic Nutrition Hub has created an extensive nutrition business course in collaboration with many professionals in the industry. In this BONUS business course, you will find information on the following:
- Goal Setting
- Business Musts Before Practicing
- Finding Your Niche
- How to Gain Practical Experience
- Coaching vs Consulting – Which one is right for you?
- The Truth About Entrepreneurship
- Other Streams of Revenue
- Networking Ideas to Build Your Following
- Helpful Business & Nutrition Tools
- Social Media & Marketing
- How to Use the HUB for Your Business
Case studies are a practical simulation of working with clients. They are a great way to provide you with the experience as if you were working in your own natural nutrition practice!
We take you through a case study assessment step-by-step so you don’t miss any part of the evaluation process and it will help you to focus more deeply on the clients’ priorities and goals. Successful completion of the case studies will provide you with experience and confidence as you begin your own practice in natural nutrition!
These case studies are submitted and feedback is provided so you know that you’re on the right track!

Owner: Time For Your Fitness – Creator of the Healthy YOU Program
ACE Health Coach, ACSM Personal Trainer, CETI Cancer Exercise Trainer, Natural Nutrition Coach
I have taken other nutrition courses for CEC’s and had some basic information provided about nutrition with my Health Coaching certification. The NNC program has given me more detailed knowledge about nutrition and I now feel confident to give my clients advise about their particular digestive concerns/disorders as well as their energy levels and mood as it relates to their diet. I really appreciate the handouts that are provided for me to share with my clients. I have more confidence now when talking to clients about nutrition as a result of completing this course. I highly recommend this course!

OUR NUTRITION COURSES
Same Program, 2 Different Editions
This course is available in both a Canadian edition and a U.S. edition. The materials covered are the same, but we have made changes for spelling differences and included statistics and regulatory information that are relevant to our Canadian and American students. For example, some food labelling guidelines are different in the U.S. than they are in Canada and so we have included the information that is relevant to the specific country.
