The Benefits of Having a Health Coach with Belinda Oberle
 

Reaching our optimal state of health has gotten more and more difficult - even when our doctors or physicians have already prescribed us an appropriate diet or medications. This is because we are not that motivated and committed enough to change our lifestyles. 

Having discipline and drive is very crucial for us to achieve the kind of health condition we want. If we still cannot resist craving our favorite desserts or buying all kinds of fast foods for our go-to meals, it will be very easy for us to fall into temptation when we start to change our diet. 

Just like other aspects of life, we need to alter our behavior and mindset when it comes to choosing the food we eat and how we can integrate movement and activities into our day-to-day routine. Having a health coach can guide us with our decisions when it comes to food intake and choosing the proper diet and exercise that fits us to easily meet our desired health change. 

Health coaches are part of the healthcare team that provides support and accountability to people through lifestyle adaptations. In this episode, we are joined by Nurse Belinda Oberle to tell us why it is important to have a health coach.
