What Is Group Nutrition Coaching?
Group nutrition coaching is fairly self-explanatory. It’s nutrition coaching in a group setting.
You and the others in your group will work closely with a nutrition coach, likely a registered dietitian or nutritionist, to achieve your PCOS and other nutrition goals
You may wonder how you can work on your personal goals in a group setting. Good question.
Group nutrition coaching brings together a group with common nutrition goals, like managing PCOS. You may not all share all of the same goals, but your main goal is the same.
The beauty of group nutrition coaching for PCOS is that you have access to an expert as well as the support of others who are also on a PCOS journey.
Together, you will share your successes and struggles, so you all come out stronger on the other side.
Who Is Group Nutrition Coaching For?
Anyone with a nutrition-related goal can benefit from group nutrition coaching.
This is especially true if your goal is a fairly common goal that others are likely to share, like navigating life with PCOS.
Common focuses of group nutrition coaching include:
- Controlling a condition, like PCOS
- Nutrition education
- Finding food freedom
The Advantage of a Virtual Nutritionist
Group nutrition coaching is often conducted online, which makes it even more accessible.
While you may struggle to find a group nutrition coaching program specifically for PCOS in your local area, the digital age allows you to connect with others near and far.
Who May Want To Consider Individual Nutrition Coaching
If you have some very specific nutrition-related goals that are unlikely to be shared by others, you may benefit more from individual, personalized nutrition coaching instead of group nutrition coaching.
If you have multiple medical concerns that require much more individualized planning with a dietitian, you may also want to consider one-on-one nutrition counseling.
If you aren’t comfortable sharing your struggles in a group setting and would prefer something more private and confidential, individual counseling is likely a better fit for you.
How Does Group Nutrition Coaching Help Me Reach My Goals?
First and foremost, group nutrition coaching gives you direct access to an expert. This expert has experience helping others achieve the same goals you have set for yourself. They will be able to support and guide you to change your habits and find long-term success.
Second, group nutrition coaching connects you with others who are on a similar journey. This provides support and camaraderie as you work toward common goals. It may also expose you to ideas and ways of thinking that you’ve never seen or heard before. Your coach isn’t the only person you’ll be learning from.
How Does Group Nutrition Coaching Help Me Manage PCOS?
The big picture is great, but you’re likely wondering more specifically how group coaching will really help you manage your PCOS.
The answer is by:
- Supporting you after a PCOS diagnosis.
- Connecting you with like-minded women who are on a similar PCOS journey.
- Helping you build confidence with your food choices, meal planning, and exercise to help manage your PCOS.
- Exploring PCOS symptoms, causes, and treatments together.
- Using mindfulness and mindful eating as tools for living your best life with PCOS.
- Learning how to give your body what it needs to feel your best and to conquer your PCOS symptoms.
What Does A Group Nutrition Coaching Program Entail
Group nutrition coaching programs include individual and group sessions to help you achieve your goals--big and small.
Initially, you will meet with your PCOS nutrition coach for an individual assessment to review your goals, what to expect, and some personalized resources.
Throughout the program, you will meet your group regularly for educational sessions led by your nutrition coach. These sessions will be informational and collaborative so you can make progress toward your goals each and every week.
Additionally, you will receive educational modules, recipes, and other resources to support your learning and growth.
Finally, you will also be able to reach out to your coach directly for individual support at any time throughout your program, so you always feel guided.

Liz has been reading nutrition labels since she learned how to read. Growing up with severe peanut and tree nut allergies she learned that it’s important to know what you are putting into your body. She made her first big lifestyle change as a freshman in high school, when she decided to become a vegetarian. However, it wasn’t until she took a food class in Italy as part of a study abroad program in college that it clicked in her mind that she wanted to make food and nutrition her career. Liz graduated from Penn State University in 2015 with a bachelor's degree in Nutrition, as well as a bachelor's degree in Marketing. She completed her dietetic internship with Aramark in Philadelphia, and her master's degree at Northeastern University shortly after.
