Good nutrition is a very important part of a healthy lifestyle. With the Virtuagym software, you can make your clients aware of what they're putting in their mouth each day. When it comes to the nutrition app, you have two ways to coach your clients in nutrition, actively and passively.
Active coaching: With this version of coaching you do not only create a nutrition plan for them, but you also fill up (some of) their days in the food diary. You can put in food for everyday of the week, or choose to only put in a few days. For example, you can decide to fill up the Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday for them. On those days, they will need to eat exactly what you've put in for them, and the other days they can decide themselves. Coaching this way, means that you tell your clients exactly what to eat each day, so basically giving them an exact diet to follow. This is very active coaching, and will cost a lot of time.
Passive coaching: If you do not want to spend that much time on the nutrition part, you can choose to only create a nutrition plan for your client. With the help of some personal data, the system creates a fitted nutrition based on a certain amount of calories, fats, proteins and carbs. In the nutrition diary, the client can see how much calories they are allowed to eat. Once they put in the food they've eaten, the progress bars will go up. This way, they are made aware of what the food is doing to their daily needs. So they learn what's good for them and what isn't. This version of coaching takes a lot less time, and makes your clients aware of their food habits.
