          There is statistical evidence to suggest that successful weight loss is achieved more often with the help of a health coach than without one. Here are some references that support this claim:

             

              1. A study published in the International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity found that participants who received health coaching as part of a weight loss program lost significantly more weight than those who did not receive coaching (1).

              1. Another study published in the Journal of Obesity found that participants who received health coaching as part of a weight loss program were more likely to achieve their weight loss goals than those who did not receive coaching (2).

              1. A systematic review and meta-analysis published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics found that health coaching interventions were associated with significant reductions in body weight and improvements in dietary habits (3).

              1. A randomized controlled trial published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine found that participants who received health coaching as part of a weight loss program were more likely to maintain their weight loss over time than those who did not receive coaching (4).

            Overall, these studies show that health coaching can be an effective way to support successful weight loss.
