The HWL ToolKit features the debut of a meal planning component called the Healthy Eating Plan. The Healthy Eating Plan, in addition to personalized coaching and other important resources included in the HWL ToolKit, serves to provide HWL Coaches with everything needed to coach clients effectively to achieve their weight loss goals.

Some of the resources in the HWL ToolKit include; education on topics such as portion control, how to read and understand food labels, effective goal setting, completing a food journal and the opportunity to create a Healthy Eating Plan comprised of nutritious meals and snacks to support the client's weight loss goal. The HWL coaches inherently acknowledge that every individual is unique encourages each client to make better choices more often. The Healthy Eating Plan incorporates these concepts and encourages clients to build a plan that works for their day to day life. The HWL ToolKit is the turn-key approach to fat loss.

"I have taken the HWL canfitpro course and I would like to say that it has given me so much knowledge and information that I can apply to clients as a healthy eating coach. I was inspired to take the course as I have lost 30 lbs in the past two years and have successfully kept the weight off. Through canfitpro's HWL course and education, I can now understand the science behind our foods that we consume and I am able to continually make better and healthier choices.

"The Healthy Eating and Weight Loss Coach course has changed my outlook on my lifestyle choices. I have a different mindset when I go grocery shopping and I am already making healthier choices. I can't wait to use my new found knowledge to help my friends and family improve their lives as well. The online course and manual are well structured and easy to follow. I would not hesitate to recommend this course to anyone who is interested in making a positive change in their life and the lives of their clients."
