What is a Lifestyle Coach?

by | Dec 9, 2021

After a consultation with your doctor, do you receive support carrying out your doctor’s lifestyle change recommendations?

“The challenge is not knowing what to change but how.”

Many of us lack the proper structures to support the behavioral changes that our health goals require.  A lifestyle coach amplifies your own motivation, empowers you, and presents the tools to overcome any perceived barriers to take action.

When we feel something is being imposed on us, limiting our freedom or choice  — even if it’s for our own good — our natural reaction is to resist.  A lifestyle coach helps you identify your own personal and compelling reasons for change and map out a plan.

With the integrative approach to disease management and prevention through Digital Therapeutics DTX’s,   the tools are at reach to monitor,  support, and maintain open communication. Through our online platform, a lifestyle coach, apart from being the bridge to your healthcare professional, becomes your accountability partner. 

Accountability enables you to stay consistent and focused on achieving the incremental progress that will allow you to reach your health goals.

The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) studied accountability and found that you have a 65 percent chance of completing a goal if you commit to someone. And if you have a specific accountability appointment with a person to whom you have  committed, you will increase your chance of success by up to 95%.

In the healthcare context, this means not only a higher chance of achieving the weight loss target or lowering your HbA1c (metric of average blood glucose levels over 2-3 months indicating the risk to develop Diabetes or complications),  but would also translate to taking a lead role in your health. You will learn how to manage your glucose, make better choices, and discover what lifestyles changes work in your unique context to acquire sustainable habits conducive to your optimal health. 

Habits shape our bodies, minds, and beliefs. An essential characteristic of a habit is that it is automatic, and studies show that more than 40% of what we do is habitual. A lifestyle coach stimulates your self-awareness and brings tools to the table to rewire and break down a behavior into small achievable steps.

A Lifestyle coach in Glucare works alongside your Healthcare team,  a team that continuously monitors and analyzes your data to understand the unique way in which your body works and absorbs not only what you consume but how your body is reacting to your current routine, your quality of sleep and the way stress impacts your health.  This personalized tech-focused approach makes the path of improving your health not only a path paved for success but making an enjoyable journey.
