We developed this advanced certification because of questions we get all the time at The Health Sciences Academy:

  • Why doesn't portion control work with my clients?
  • Can I help clients lose weight without feeling hungry?
  • Is there a cure for food addicts?
  • Can a client eat all they want and still lose weight?
  • How often should my client eat?
  • Could this client have a food intolerance?
  • How can I help speed up my client's fat loss?
(Yes, we get questions like these even from medical doctors and university-trained dietitians and nutritionists).
Questions like that inspired us to bring practical science closer to those who want to help others lose weight, in the right way.
This course is our combined know-how in appetite neurochemistry, hunger hormones, nutrition science, food addiction, eating psychology, and food allergies and intolerances.
If you want to help your clients successfully lose weight, and keep it off effortlessly, we believe that you need to understand the science of nutrition and appetite psychology.
So, how do you do it?
Fortunately, that’s exactly what you’re about to learn…

FACT: Clients Need Practitioners Who Have a Profound, Science-based Insight on Clinical Weight Loss

(…Who Actually Know What They’re Saying)
Data: World Health Organisation, Obesity and
Overweight Fact Sheet, retrieved 2017
Since you’re here, you probably already know that obesity rates are on the rise…
According to the World Health Organisation:
40% of the global adult population is overweight.
The worldwide prevalence of obesity more than doubled since 1980.
Overweight and obesity are linked to more deaths worldwide than underweight.
These rates are too high and need to be lowered.
Practitioners today must gain a profound, science-based insight that they can use to help clients PROFICIENTLY, particularly if they want to stand out and be leaders in this field.
This scientific insight includes being able to assess someone’s unique biochemical and nutritional needs.

That's where YOU can make a difference.

  • How not to feel hungry during weight loss
  • When fast weight loss may be better
  • When fat is not fat: Water retention and food intolerances

Love the additional client forms/questionnaires that will help me set up my new business. Love the simplistic layout of the course materials, easy to find and follow advice and info that will stay with me. i found this way of learning was more effective for me than just going through a text book.

Everything was set at the right level, covering science based materials with practical examples. Templates were easy to follow, and provided the ability to explain nutritional strategies to any potential clients, in line with their chosen goals. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and found it very valuable. Looking forward to putting it into practice! Thanks!
