In this video, Brian St. Pierre, MS, RD, CSCS—PN’s director of nutrition—shares why the five most powerful words in nutrition and health coaching are “how’s that working for you?”
The conversation this question creates can reveal if a client’s current diet is right for them—or if it’s destined for failure.

Here’s why this matters: Most people judge the effectiveness of a diet by how quickly their scale (or pant size) is moving. But that doesn’t tell you much about your (or your client’s) energy level, ability to think clearly, or mood.
It also doesn’t tell you whether the benefits you’re noticing outweigh any mental, physical, emotional, or social costs they might come with. Because even if a diet gets you super pumped or lean, it may or may not be worth it if it means giving up nachos forever.
Brian explains why all this matters, and helps you understand:
How this five-word question can lead to powerful insights
What your job really is as a coach
How to give your clients the skills to self-evaluate
The (often surprising) factors that determine if a diet works
