Conceptual paper
The current perception is that initial successful weight loss is often followed by weight regain after 5 y of the dietary intervention(1). Evidence from systematic reviews suggests that long term weight loss through changes in eating and physical activity is possible(2), but although formal behavior change interventions and self-guided efforts at individual behavior change are successful in inducing weight loss, few people manage to maintain these changes in weight over the long term(3). Clinical dietitians and nutritionists face multiple barriers to effectively delivering lifestyle interventions in today’s health care setting. They are not trained to keep people accountable for their new, healthy choices, their new physical image and how to change their eating habits. They are not trained to recognize eating patterns and generate new, healthier behaviors but, nonetheless, remain powerful motivators in helping patients initiate and maintain weight loss efforts that reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes and other chronic diseases. A coaching intervention focused on patients’ values and sense of purpose may provide added benefit to traditional wellness, diabetes and weight loss education programs(4). Fundamentals of health coaching may be applied by nutritionists to improve patient self-efficacy, accountability, and clinical outcomes.
