At the International Association of Food and Nutrition Coaches, we aim to reveal the truth about how nutrition can save your life. There’s no doubt that a bad diet is linked to many of the world’s most devastating diseases such as diabetes and heart disease. Helping people to change to a healthier lifestyle can make a huge difference to their illness and its progress. At the same time, eating the right foods will reduce people’s risk of disease and help them realise the awesome potential that great health offers.
