About the Chocolate Diet
Although there are wide variety of weight loss programs, the Chocolate Diet is a whole food, plant-based eating style that includes the superfood Chocolate. The Chocolate Diet is an evidence-based system which is founded on peer-reviewed scientific research as a way to enhance health and overall wellness through our food.
The Chocolate Diet provides all the necessary macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, and fats), the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals), fiber, and phytochemicals that are required for optimum health. It is also an ideal weight-loss plan as it is almost impossible to eat too many calories when enjoying delicious meals of dark leafy greens, colorful vegetables, and ripe fruits with a moderation portion of chocolate for dessert!
The origin of the term ‘diet’ comes from the Greek word diaita which means a lifestyle or prescribed way of living. Unlike many fad weight loss systems, the Chocolate Diet not designed as a temporary plan, but a life-long program of nutritional excellence which allows anyone who follows it to achieve both an increased healthspan and lifespan. By eating the right way, one can drastically reduce their overall risks of obesity, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and many forms of cancer.
Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation about weight loss on the internet. Additionally, some of the concepts about diets and healthy eating are based on outdated theories, strange ideas, and pseudo-mysticism. In 2010, Thom Quinn, the founder of Nutrition Coach LLC, began a systematic review of hundreds of scientific papers and popular diet books to align the current body-of-knowledge about physiology, biochemistry, and human nutrition with the best practices of weight loss. The outcome of that project is the Chocolate Diet.
For years, athletes, celebrities, and executives have relied on coaches as guides and accountability partners to reach the next level of success. Today, coaching is no longer just reserved for the rich and famous. Anyone who is truly driven and committed to achieve a new level of health and fitness can profit from the coaching process.
The Chocolate Diet with Coaching has these benefits:
Fast Results: Most people who start a new diet, do it alone. By ‘going solo’ without expert advice, those individuals lose fewer pounds each month and get fit much slower than those who hire a coach. Instead of learning what is the fastest, healthiest, and easiest way to eat, people who do not work with a qualified raw food coach end up wasting time while conducting their own ‘trial and error’ research in their kitchen. Instead of attempting to re-invent the wheel, the easiest solution is to work with a Nutrition Coach.
Long-Term Success: Only about 5% of people who begin a new diet plan, exercise regimen, or wellness system succeed over a 5-year span. Most people who lose weight gain it back within five years as they return to poor health habits after completing the initial program. Coaching helps individuals transcend these old behaviors and replace them with new practices that will enhance health over the lifespan.
5-Star Support: It is very difficult to lose weight and get fit alone. The process is much easier when a Raw Diet Coach is part of your personal wellness team. A Nutrition Coach acts as a success partner and will help insure that your time, energy, and effort are indeed translated into the optimal health outcomes that you desire.
About Thom Quinn
Thom Quinn is a world-class Nutrition Coach and leader in the weight loss community. Since 2005, he has been actively coaching individuals to achieve their highest goals. He founded Possibility Coaching, LLC in 2006 and during his first few years as a professional coach, he assisted highly successful entrepreneurs and other top professionals find solutions to a wide variety of business and personal issues. During this time, Thom noticed that over half his clients approached him to help with weight loss, fix destructive health habits, or overcome other fitness problems. From 2010 to 2013, Thom conducted a systematic review of the scientific literature on biochemistry, physiology, nutrition science, psychology, and sociology to determine what methods, practices, and strategies really do lead to long-term weight loss and improved wellness. This involved reading over 500 peer-reviewed papers within many different journals. While conducting this deep dive, Thom discovered the problem was much larger than he imagined. The Centers of Disease Control reports that approximately 2/3 of Americans are overweight and 1/3 of the adult population is currently obese. Clearly, there is a major disconnect between how people should eat to produce healthy outcomes and the way most Americans do eat. This information led to a major shift within his own coaching practice so he could help a wider group of people with their fitness problems.
In 2011, Thom Quinn founded a new coaching company, Nutrition Coach LLC, to help individuals who desired to learn more about losing weight and getting fit while eating a plant-based, whole food diets. Thom Quinn is also the creator of the Chocolate Diet, an evidence-based weight loss solution that integrates the best practices of nutrition with the latest scientific insights on the benefits of dark chocolate. In fact, Thom used this unique program to lose 30 pounds himself.

Currently, Thom is dedicated to coaching individuals who want to learn how to eat the right way so they can lose weight, improve their overall health, increase their fitness and energy level, and maximize their vitality and longevity while reducing their risks of developing diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and many cancers.
