Nutrition Coaching Program:
Transform your body, your health, and your fitness.
Four times every year, through our Nutrition Coaching program, we help men and women lose weight, gain strength, and transform their health and fitness. On Wednesday, 31st May 2017 we will be opening up registration for our Summer group.
If you’re new to Your Nutritional Blueprint, here’s something you might not know. Each new season, we work with men and women, coaching them for up to 12 months to help them get healthier and fitter than they’ve ever been.
We help clients make better, healthier choices, consistently and consciously. This includes:
- Eating better.
- Exercising more intelligently.
- Managing stress.
- Sleeping and recovering better.
- Taking better care of themselves.
Having fun — yes, fun! — living actively and healthily.
The result? Research-driven, life-changing, body transformations
With our next registration approaching, we get lots of great questions about the program. We discuss the programs on our Facebook page so if your keen to find out more about the service, jump on over there and join our tribe…
Today we will answer the most common ones so you can decide if it’s a good fit for you.
Q: Who are Your Nutritional Blueprint?
A: Your Nutritional Blueprint is a team of coaches based in the UK, helping clients to make better food choices. We offer lifestyle and nutrition coaching services online and face-to-face in the community. We are committed to helping people understand their limitations and helping them personalise their own nutrition so that it works FOR them rather than AGAINST them like traditional diet programs work. Adding more GOOD things in, rather than focusing on simply taking BAD stuff out. Because that simply doesn’t work.
The basis for ALL our coaching programs is using Precision Nutrition educational material. Their systems have been fine-tuned over 15 years so that the best customer experience is provided. Your Nutritional Blueprint coaches are fully accredited Elite Super Coaches and are experiences in delivering their expertise to all of our clients. We currently maintain the highest level accreditation they offer and we were one of the very first to obtain the certifications in the UK. We also mentor new Precision Nutrition students as they grow their coaching experience. We have been delivering their material since April 2015 and have many case studies and testimonials here…
The following questions and answers were initially provided by Precision Nutrition, we have reproduced them here because our 12-month program is using their systems for delivery. There would be no difference in experience between joining one directly with Precision Nutrition or through us at Your Nutritional Blueprint.
Q: Who are Precision Nutrition?
A: Precision Nutrition are the world leaders in nutrition coaching. Over a 15 year period, they have helped clients lose over 1,000,0000 pounds in fat-loss and heres the critical part….keep it off. How do they do this? Because their programs focus on improving things.
Q: What is Precision Nutrition Coaching?
A: Precision Nutrition Coaching is a 12-month program that guides clients through dramatic—yet sustainable—changes in their eating and exercise habits with help from an expert coach. To date, they have tested it with more than 45,000 people, who have transformed their bodies and health profiles in amazing ways.
After 15 years in the fitness industry, they have seen dozens of diet and exercise fads come and go. That’s why they don’t follow fads. Instead, they have carved their own path, testing and continuously updating their methods.
The program specialises in taking complex nutritional problems and breaking them down into small, strategic daily practices— small practices that are designed to fit into a busy lifestyle.
Nutrition Coaching includes:
– A structured year-long nutrition program to help keep you consistent.
– An expert coach to give you feedback, make adjustments to your program, and help keep you accountable.
– Strategic daily nutrition practices that fit into your lifestyle.
– Expertly-designed training programs, customised to your skill level, goals, and time available.
– Guaranteed results. Stick with us for a year, and if you don’t get what you’re looking for, you get a full refund.
Q: Who is Coaching for?
A: Nutrition Coaching is for men and women who want to get in the best shape of their lives—for the rest of their lives. It’s for people with busy schedules who want personal accountability, a structured nutrition program to follow, and a coach to help keep them consistent and on-track.
The main focus of the program is to strategically help you improve your eating and exercise habits—all within the context of your day-to-day life. We don’t give you a crazy diet or exercise program to follow; instead, we help our clients build the habits they need to get results that last forever.
Q: Who is Nutrition Coaching NOT for?
A: Precision Nutrition Coaching is not for figure or fitness models, professional bodybuilders, or high-level athletes training for a particular sport.
It’s also not for people who already have all the accountability they need.
If you rarely struggle with staying consistent with your exercise or eating habits, then we’re not a good choice for you.
Q: Will Nutrition Coaching work for me?
A: If you follow our recommendations and stick with us for the full year then yes, you will get results.
But you have to commit to making small strategic changes in your life.
That’s something no one ever likes to admit about getting in better shape: it takes hard work, time, and determination.
Changing your body isn’t easy, but it is possible.
Want to lose weight? Eat better? Feel less stressed? Get more sleep?
For 15 years Precision Nutrition have helped thousands of people do all that and more. And we’re confident we can help you, too.
Once you make the commitment to get in better shape, we’ll be with you every step of the way. When life pushes you around and difficulties come up, we’ll help you push back.
We’ll stack the deck in your favour and give you every advantage we know of. Over the course of 12 months, you’ll learn everything you need to look, feel, and perform at your best.
That’s our promise.
Q: Do you really guarantee results?
A: Absolutely. We guarantee our work because it’s the right thing to do.
Stick with us for a year and follow our recommendations. If you don’t get what you’re looking for at the end of the year, we’ll give you a full refund.
Q: Who are you and what makes you qualified to coach?
A: I’m James Belbin Lead Coach at Your Nutritional Blueprint. I am a Level 2 Accredited Coach of the Precision Nutrition system. In a corporate sales career I spent 20 years honing my listening skills and in 2013 quit my career to start on a new journey helping people make lifelong changes to their health. Since starting my business we have assisted over 20 people to live better lives through positive changes to their nutrition.
We have been working with Precision Nutrition since 2014, firstly studying with them on their Essentials of Sport and Exercise Nutrition Level One Program and then in 2015 taking their Level 2 Coaching program. We hold the highest level of accreditation as will all the coaches we employ.
Q: What will I learn in the Nutrition Coaching program?
A: If you’re wondering what we have in store for you, you can download the entire men’s curriculum or click here for the women’s curriculum.
Q: Do you give me a meal plan?
A: No, we don’t give out meal plans.
Meal plans and diets aren’t really that useful or sustainable. People often feel like they’re either “on” them or “off” them. They feel like they’ve failed and are beyond hope if they’re not eating perfectly at every meal.
Our approach is completely different: We help you build a set of sustainable habits that will serve you for the rest of your life.
This means you get to choose—with the help of your coach—which foods are best for you, when to eat those foods, and how much to eat of them.
Q: Can I see a demo of how the program works?
A: Absolutely, click here to check it out:
Q: Why are you offering this type of coaching?
A: Mentors and coaches have made all the difference in my life. And that’s why I chose to model my business on Precision Nutrition Coaching programs.
At Your Nutritional Blueprint, most of us feel extremely fortunate to have access to mentors and coaches. People who are a little further along the path than we are. People who can help steer us in the direction we need to go.
That’s why we’ve made it our mission to pay it forward. We’re here to help you make meaningful change in your life.
Q: Why coaching? Can’t I just pick up a diet book? Or read some online articles for free?
A: If you take an honest look at your life—and at the lives of the people you most respect and admire—you’ll notice something interesting.
As human beings, we’re rarely ever transformed by reading more books or articles. Or from watching a documentary. Or from taking a class.
Instead, most transformative change happens through a real relationship with another human being—usually a coach or a mentor.
Sure, you can try another diet book or read a few more articles, especially if you love thinking about exercise and nutrition. If you get great results with those tools, we applaud you.
But if you’re having trouble putting what you know into action, Nutrition Coaching might be for you.
Q: I’m a beginner with a lot of weight to lose. Will this work for me?
A: Yes. We’ve worked with lots of people who are new to exercise and healthy eating.
Remember, we were all beginners at some point. We do our best to make sure all beginners work at a pace that’s comfortable for them.
To see for yourself how diverse our clients are, click here to see the men and here for the women that we’ve worked with.
What you’ll notice is that our clients come in all shapes and sizes, are all ages, and come from all different backgrounds.
Q: I’m NOT a beginner. Will your coaching work for me?
A: Lots of our clients have 5+ years of experience with consistent training and healthy eating. And they still get great results with us. That’s because the interactions they have with their coach are tailored to their needs and goals—it’s not a “one size fits all” program.
Often people with a lot of experience enjoy handing the reins over to us for a while. We take care of the nutrition and exercise programming so they can focus on improving other parts of their lives.
We’ve even helped personal trainers and sports coaches get in better shape.
Q: What if I don’t have much weight to lose but just want to eat better?
A: It’s great that you don’t have a lot of weight to lose. It means you’re starting out with a big advantage.
Of course, lifelong fitness and health is more than losing weight. With Nutrition Coaching you’ll learn how to maintain a lean and healthy body for life. Plus you’ll develop a new, healthier relationship to food and eating. And that’s something fewer than 5 percent of people know how to do.
Q: I’m interested in building muscle. Is this for me?
A: Yes. We have custom exercise programming and nutrition habits specifically for people who want to gain muscle. We will help you tailor the program to ensure that muscle building is your goal.
Q: I’m thinking of joining with a friend or partner. Can we do the program together?
A: Of course. We encourage friends, partners, and family members to join together. That immediate social support makes a real difference for many of our clients.
We’ve also had fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, sisters and brothers, coworkers, and best friends join together.
Q: Is this just for young people?
A: Absolutely not. We’ve coached men and women of all ages.
To see for yourself how diverse our clients are, click here to see the men and here for the women that we’ve worked with.
Q: I read that you require progress photos. Do I have to submit those?
A: Well, technically, we don’t require progress photos. They’re completely optional.
The reason behind requesting progress photos is to visually document the changes you’re making while coaching with us.
(It’s also important for your coach to see what’s happening so they can help give you better advice when required.)
Of course, at the end of your coaching experience, if you’re really proud of your transformation and want to be featured as a finalist, we’ll ask for your permission to do so.
But, before that, the pictures will be kept totally private at all times.
Remember, we’re here to help people change their bodies and their lives. Not to embarrass anyone or make them feel ashamed.
So you can opt out of the photo process if you want to.
Although we really do encourage you to stretch yourself, get out of your comfort zone, and give this method a try.
Just like a few of our most recent clients:
Q: How much does it cost?
A: The exclusive pre-sale price: Choose from a one-time payment of £169 upfront or £20 per month for 12 months.
Note: This discount is only for people on the pre-sale list; the general public pays either £260 up front or £35 per month for 12 months.
We offer this discount to people who sign up for the pre-sale list for one reason: the people who are most eager and willing to take action are usually our best clients. That’s why we reward them with a discount and a chance to register a full 24 hours before everyone else.
Not on the pre-sale list yet? Add your name here.
Q: Will I have to spend a lot of money on food and supplements?
A: When it comes to food, most clients actually end up saving money on their grocery bills.
This is because they make more informed, careful decisions, eat out less, and spend fewer dollars on processed novelty foods, replacing them with whole, delicious natural foods.
As for supplements, we may recommend a few health-oriented products, based on your unique needs and goals. However, these are completely optional.
Q: Will I need to join a gym?
A: Nope, you don’t have to join a gym to be successful with Nutrition Coaching.
All the exercise programs can be performed at a gym or at home. Some of our best testimonials were with clients who didn’t actively exercise in a gym.
Q: I like to (Crossfit, run, bike, swim, ski, do group exercise classes, walk my dog, etc). Can I still do the stuff I love while getting coaching?
A: Of course. Keep doing what you love.
That’s the whole point of Precision Nutrition Coaching—to learn how to eat and exercise in a way that’s fun and sustainable. And to do this all while living a fuller life.
Once you get started, you’ll just work with your coach to figure out how to structure things.
Q: I already have a personal trainer. Can I keep that up while getting coaching with Precision Nutrition?
A: Yes, if you want to continue with both, that’ll work.
In fact, I think with Precision Nutrition Coaching AND your in-person coach, you’ll be unstoppable.
Once you sign up, just let your coach know that you’re working with a local trainer and we’ll make sure to integrate the two. If you are local to Brighton and Hove we also partner with some local personal trainers to provide a more personalised service.
Q: I have a few injuries. Can I still join?
We all go through injuries, so I understand where you’re coming from. In fact, here’s my own personal story with injury.
With Precision Nutrition Coaching, we can tailor certain exercises to help fit your needs.
Once you’ve signed up, you’ll simply work with your coach to find some easy and effective alternatives.
Q: I follow a special diet (plant-based, vegan, Paleo, intermittent fasting). Will you still work with me?
A: Yes, we’d love to work with you. The nutrition habits your coach will guide you through are easily customisable.
All you have to do is let your coach know what your dietary preferences/restrictions are and they’ll help you out.
For more on our thoughts about a host of different diets, read this.
Q: When does the Precision Nutrition Coaching program begin?
A: We open registration on Wednesday, July 13th, 2016. And there won’t be another one until January 2017.

A: Precision Nutrition Coaching lasts for 12 months. Based on our continued research, we’ve found a full year to be the most effective time period for building the habits necessary for life-long health and fitness.
