I'm often asked how somebody actually gets to the point where they can help people have better health - particularly when it comes to the eating part. After all, even if you don't have the resources to attend medical school and become a physician, we still live in an era where you can become a personal trainer, nutritionist, dietitian, or health coach and still be able to help lots of people achieve better health. So in today's podcast, I interview Maria Marlowe (pictured right), who is certified through the "Institute for Integrative Nutrition", which is the world's largest nutrition school. Maria graduated at the top of her class, summa cum laude, from Fordham University with a BS in Finance and Marketing. After landing a coveted finance position after graduation, she quickly decided that industry wasn’t for her, and pursued her passion for the healing power of food. She attended the Natural Gourmet Institute to learn raw food preparation, and became a Certified Health Coach through Integrative Nutrition. She is a regular contributor to The Daily Love, Wellness Today, and Mind Body Green, and has been featured in Shape, Well & Good NYC, and New York Press. She is currently working towards her Masters in Human Nutrition and resides in New York. In this interview, you'll learn: -What a health coach is... -How to become a health coach... -How being a health coach is different than being a nutritionist or an RD... -What a typical day in the life of a health coach looks like (including the video below)... -How much it costs to become a health coach... -How much money a health coach makes... -And much more!
