What does DNANUTRICOACH stand for?
DNA is a molecule and it is what makes us unique. Our DNA writes our personal manual, what we call our “book of life”.
Humans are about 99 % identical. The remaining 1% is capable of defining differences in the color of our eyes, of our skin, of our hair and differences in our way of metabolizing nutrients, losing weight, gaining fat, running faster, developing certain diseases.
DNA is a molecule. It is a nucleic acid called deoxyribonucleic acid. We find it, very carefully packaged, in the nucleus of all of our cells. DNA contains all the genetic information and instructions of our human organism.
DNA is organized in four letters (A, T, C, G) and it writes our “book of life” with a combination of these four letters. This “book” includes about 3 billion of DNA letters and their concrete sequence form approximately 30.000 genes.
Our nutrition is the only environmental factor that we can totally control throughout our life. From birth to death.
Our nutritional habits are pivotal to maintain health and prevent disease. Whilst, nutrition does not always receive the necessary attention. Evidence-based scientific results are the ones that should guide our nutritional habits.
Nutrition itself is only one part of a healthy lifestyle, but it is NOT the center of it. The habits that we adopt around our nutritional behavior depend on our education, our society, our likes and dislikes and of course on our economy. This kind of education goes far beyond a simple diet or a menu proposal.
Coaching is empowerment, motivation, and goal-setting. The coaching has a beginning and an end.
The Coaching profession describes the technique; the art and the careful methodology applied to empower people to improve their lives.
Through coaching, the person comes up with solutions, improve, achieve their goals and keep on moving forward despite the tempting comfort of staying still. Coaching routes back to the teachings of Socrates and Plato.
Coaching does not treat pathologies or any kind of psychological problems but aims at accompanying healthy people fulfill their dreams under concrete professional standards (Code of Professional Conduct) and ethical guidelines.
