My Path to Become a Certified Health Coach at IIN

A little about my story

As you may know, I’ve been an advocate for health and wellness for quite some time. I’ve always been a student and the nutrition topic has been my passion since I decided to change careers and become a Certified Health Coach.

I graduated from Chemical Engineering in 2005 but soon after graduation, I realized that the engineering world wasn’t the world I belong to. So I decided to make a change. In 2005 I traveled to Montreal, and during those months I realized that for me it was very easy to gain weight. With the change in the diet and lifestyle during that time I gained over 25lb! I was very skinny when I got to Montreal. But I didn’t know anything about diet or exercise. 

I started taking interest in the field. So I decided to find out and I started to read every book and article about nutrition. I certainly didn’t want to be overweight and struggle with my weight all my life like my mom and her sisters. So I decided to learn about it and reverse that destiny, and in the process, I became in love with it.

This was a goals of mine for a very long time, and this year I finally made the commitment. I feel that I want to offer you so much help but I still have a lot to learn. I want to make a bigger impact in you and in the world and that’s why I decided to go back to school and keep learning.

However, many of you may not know what a Health Coach is. Health coaching is a relatively new profession, but the idea behind it is really based in how we, as human beings, operate. As a health coach, I help you work with your unique body, and take into consideration how everything in your life affects your health and wellness.

How to Turn the “Good” Genes On and the “Bad” Genes Off

Twelve years ago life gave me a wake-up call so that I would change my lifestyle. I realized I have the “obesity genes” That tendency of gaining weight just by looking at a cake, lol. I gained 12 kilos (about 26 lb in 4 months). My genetics betrayed me and my insulin levels started to rise and the doctor told me that, if I stayed on the same path I could become diabetic. I did not want that!
