5 STEPS TO BECOME A NUTRITIONISTFollow these simple steps and learn how to become a Nutritionist. Having a Nutritionist qualification will allow you to make an impact with your clients.
STEP 1 – CLARIFY YOUR ‘WHY”And while you’re at it, clarify your ‘who’ and your ‘what’ as well. Before even beginning your studies, it’s important to have a clear understanding as to why you’re doing what you’re doing, exactly who you are wanting to help and what you intend on doing with your qualification and/or business. Asking yourself these questions will help to set a firm foundation and direction for your business, which you will find yourself continually coming back to throughout your journey. This encompasses your overall purpose and intention. Why are you doing what you’re doing? Why are you studying nutrition and wanting to help people with their health? What do you intend to achieve through this endeavour? Why it’s important to be specific about the type of person you want to work with? In marketing, this is called your ‘ideal client’. What does that person do? What does their lifestyle look like? What are they struggling with?
10 QUESTIONS YOU CAN ASK TO DEFINE YOUR IDEAL CLIENT
- What are their current challenges and frustrations?
- Where do they get their health and nutrition information?
- What are their goals and priorities?
- What is their preferred form of communication?
- What does their current lifestyle look like?

- Where do they spend most of their time online?
- What phrases and language do they use?
- What is their budget?
- What is success to them?
