GIMENEZ SANCHEZ, Jaume; FLETA SANCHEZ, Yolanda  y  MEYA MOLINA, Alba. Nutritional coaching for weight loss. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2016, vol.33, n.1, pp.135-147. ISSN 1699-5198.

Introduction: Due to the high prevalence of overweight and obesity new strategies are needed for its prevention and treatment. Nutritional coaching (NC) has been shown to be effective in weight reduction although, due to the novelty of this concept, it's not always used properly. Objective: To verify if NC, in addition to dietary assessment, is an effective approach to weight loss in overweight or obese population compared to technical dietary assessment. Material and methods: We performed a search for papers related to NC to establish quality parameters for this intervention. A systematic review was conducted, including randomized controlled trials that apply CN according to the selected parameters and comparing it with technical dietary assessment. Results: Eight high quality studies were included in the analysis. Among these, six revealed statistical differences on behalf of the group that received NC. Conclusion: Nutritional coaching is an effective approach for weight reduction. Future nutritional coaching intervention research would benefit from clear definitions of this new model.
