Top 15 Instagram Nutrition Accounts To Follow

If you’re like me, I absolutely love Instagram! Unlike Facebook, I am filled with motivation every time I look through my newsfeed. There are so many amazing people that I follow and look up to for motivation, education, and accountability. In my opinion, I feel like it’s harder to filter out negativity on Facebook. In today’s world, social media has enabled us to connect and learn from people that we would have never been able to in the past. I can’t tell you how many connections I have made through social media, it’s simply amazing! With that said, here are my top 15 picks for nutrition accounts to follow on Instagram in 2018:

You know it’s impossible for anyone to out-train a bad diet…but HOW are you supposed to correct your clients’ diets when they come to you with low compliance, stalled results, trendy fad diets, eating disorders and damaging nutritional habit? Here’s the first thing you need to know: it’s not your fault that your clients are struggling to get their nutrition right.It’s not their fault, either. It’s not even the nutrition industry’s fault—we’ve developed all these incredibly effective systems, but there’s just one thing missing…You need a nutrition COACH, not a nutritionist. A nutritionist is a master of knowledge and a nutrition coach is a master of application. Whether you plan to become a nutrition coach yourself or you plan to send out one of your trainers to become one, listen closely…I’m hosting a two-day meeting of the Nutritional Coaching Institute where I will reveal EVERYTHING you need to know to deliver world-class nutrition coaching using a system that allows you to pinpoint every client’s exact needs and give them instructions they’ll actually follow.”

“Hey, I’m Carter. Over the past few years, I have lost over 140 pounds and have since made it my life’s mission to help others achieve similar success. Ever since I can remember, I’ve struggled with my weight. I was always considered the “husky” kid in my grade. I was never the heaviest, but I was always in the top ten biggest kids in my grade. I led a happy life despite my weight problem. I had a loving family and a wide social circle in grade school and throughout high school. Mentally I was well off, but physically my health was getting worse and worse. It wasn’t until I got to high school that my weight started to become a serious issue. At the age of sixteen, two significant changes took place in my life. I got my license, and my parents got a divorce. It was these two changes that initially led me to become morbidly obese. I turned to food to deal with the frustrations I had towards my parent’s divorce. Having a license that allowed me to go wherever I wanted – whenever I wanted – created a recipe for disaster. I visited fast food chains like Mcdonalds & Taco Bell on a daily basis. I would have 2-3 extra meals a day from these places without telling anyone and, as a result, quickly ballooned from a “husky” kid to an obese young adult. Although I was using food to suppress my emotions,  my social life didn’t seem to suffer much. In fact, I was involved in many extracurricular activities. I was the head anchor for my school’s news team and was even the president of a few clubs! It wasn’t until I began to notice the physical toll that being obese was having on my body that I became consciously aware of the problem at hand. Being obese comes with its physical limitations. I couldn’t run properly, I was always “winded” and participating in day to day activities became harder than they should have been. Even the small act of getting up and off the couch became a struggle against gravity. I knew that I had a weight problem but the number times I had tried and failed different “Diets” had left me with the mindset that I was destined to be heavy forever. Although my immediate family was leaner, my extended family (grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins) had all struggled with their weight and most had health ailments like Type 2 Diabetes and High Blood Pressure. I assumed I had “fat genes” and accepted it. My sophomore year of high school was when I reached my heaviest weight of 305 lbs. By BMI standards, I was morbidly obese and well on my way to developing many of the adverse health complications that plagued my family and most Westernized Societies. It wasn’t until I acknowledged the long list of negative complications that being obese was causing me that I finally realized the need to make a change. If I wanted to live a long and healthy life free of disease and discomfort, I needed to change NOW. Although the biggest “shock factor” of my weight loss journey comes from this stage (losing 140 pounds), I didn’t have any life-altering changes that took place. I was still involved in all of the extracurricular activities as before and still had the same friends. I was just “skinny” Carter now. It wasn’t until AFTER I lost weight that I began to realize the root cause of my weight problem and how I had been using food as an emotional suppressant. When I became physically healthier at a lower body weight, I had done nothing in the way of addressing my mental struggles. Instead of using unhealthy food to suppress, I turned to healthier foods. Even worse, I had developed a worse relationship with my body and food AFTER I lost weight. Once I identified this, I felt as though a light bulb had gone off in my head. I quickly started working towards changing this negative and toxic mindset. I began reading everything I could on the psychology of food and losing weight and since have been helping others achieve freedom from food and their unhealthy habits. Although I am not where I ultimately want to be (mostly mentally), I am proud to say that I have greatly improved my relationship with my body and food. As I go on my journey towards optimizing my health and happiness, I hope to help as many people as I can follow me on the same journey towards health & happiness. I am by no means perfect, but I know that spending every day striving to better myself physically and mentally will ultimately lead to a fulfilling life we all strive for!”

@cody.boomboom

“My name is Cody, but most people call me Boom-Boom. Socrates the Philosopher once said, “No man has the right to be an amateur in the matter of physical training. It is a shame for a man to grow old without seeing the beauty and strength of which his body is capable.” The reason I share that, is because that shit stuck with me. I remember being in history class way back and reading that, then taking a look at myself and realizing I was living in my body the wrong way and it was causing me so much pain, not only physically but mentally and emotionally as well. Let me back track a little bit, so you can fully get where I’m coming from…Long story short – I grew up overweight. Eventually I got sick and tired of hating the way I looked and felt every day, so I decided to change it all and live my life at a higher standard. I realized very quickly, that having true power in life starts with your body. Because as I trained and completely transformed my body, I began to experience less stress and anxiety, I began to have an unbelievably higher amount of confidence everywhere I went, my energy began to become contagious, I made a hell of a lot more money, and I started to catch women’s attention – which was something new to me. All this, led to an unbelievably big shift in my life. See when it comes to training and nutrition, I’ve tried it all. Paleo, bodybuilding, crossfit, slow cardio, high intensity cardio, low carb, and the list goes on… I’ve tried it all, I’ve studied it all, and I’ve accepted it all as a part of the puzzle to optimizing your body – they all have a part in this, just depends on the individual and the goal(s) at hand. But what really fascinated me, was the mindset aspect of it all. How changing one’s thought process, implementing specific daily and weekly practices (I call mine SHIFT 6), and shifting the atmosphere and environments we surround ourselves with can literally change it all…This is exactly how I went from being fat and avoiding the mirror, to being lean and finding an excuse to take off my shirt with confidence without looking like a complete tool. It wasn’t any of the diets, it wasn’t any specific training program… It was the way my mind shifted. And do to that shift, I was able to stick to a smart training program and a sustainable nutrition plan. And what I do now, is show other people (just like you) exactly how to make that shift and find the result I did.”

@chasitysnowden_in3

“I started off in high school with eating disorders in order to lose weight. Once in college the eating disorders were in full swing and started researching how I could lose weight and be healthy. I was diagnosed with a digestive disorder, anxiety and depression, and put on a lot of medications. Around this time I realized how food could change all that and started changing my lifestyle habits. Years later I tried bikini competition and the eating disorders came back with a vengeance so I quit and gained weight again and tried to go back to clean food. Once I started Crossfit three years ago I realized I could not simply eat clean in order to perform. After going through the process with Jason and realizing there was an easier way where I could fit good nutrition into my traveling life, AND become an elite athlete, I wanted to share with as many as possible. I wanted to let others see they could let go of fear and rules and disordered eating and still have abs or become a great athlete! The passion to help others come through.”

@tony_stephan_

“Tony Stephan here….I am so glad you made it to my blog! I think it is pretty cheesy when people drone on and on about themselves so I’ll keep this short and sweet. I’m a Registered Dietitian and Certified Personal Trainer who owns an online coaching business Tony Stephan Fitness & Nutrition LLC. My God given mission in life is to help people lose weight and KEEP it off for good WITHOUT diets or restrictions. I have been featured as a nutrition and fat loss expert in media platforms like: Fox News, Huffington Post, Women’s Health Magazine, Readers Digest, and other radio/news publications. My whole nutrition philosophy can be summed up by saying: No foods are off limits in a flexible approach to nutrition. And the best approach is the one YOU can stick to in the long run. That’s it. You don’t need skinny tea, detoxes, wraps, or cleanses to lose weight and feel great. 99% of things you hear out there are complete BS. Most people are trying to sell you some bull sh*t product and scam you out of your hard earned money. I’m not here to sell you anything besides the truth. I give away my best content and advice FOR FREE. People pay me for the custom approach and helping them APPLY that knowledge to produce results. I’m a married man (lucky guy) to my best friend Andrea. We’ve been together since we were 20 and she was always my biggest supporter. She bought my first lab coat in college when I ran out of money and is at every speaking event, news segment, and meeting I go to still to this day. My wife and I travel around a lot as I run my business from virtually anywhere (coffee shops, hotels, my house). I walk the walk with health and fitness by competing in the men’s physique division of the NPC. Any of my coaching clients will agree that this is my passion and purpose in life. Helping YOU achieve your health and fitness goals and breaking away from the dieting mentality the media has forced on us for so many years. So, I am here to help you however I can. Never hesitate to reach out to me for ANYTHING at all!”

@lauriechristineking

“At 16 years old, I began taking hormonal birth control because I had awful acne and even worse periods. I think everyone has that friend where it hits “that time of the month” and they just go down for the count – Unbearable cramps, heavy bleeding, not leaving the house because they were practically crippled.. Or maybe YOU were that friend? I was that friend. By 18 years year old, I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. I developed an eating disorder and spent a lot of high school and early college years being SUPER restrictive about my eating, because it felt like I had NO control over my body (even though I was super active, ate pretty well, and was involved in a lot of sports at the time). Doctors were not helpful and I continued to get more and more sick. I ended up pursuing a degree in Nutrition & Dietetics to not only remedy MY own issues with eating, but to put myself in a position to help others NEVER be in my position. I’ve learned that women’s health is very underappreciated and misunderstood, that most females don’t truly realize how hormonal birth control impacts them, and more importantly – that our period is a monthly feedback report on the current state of our health. I took thyroid medications for over 10 years, and it wasn’t until I got off the pill, addressed underlying hormone imbalances, and changed to a less-intensive exercise modality that I was I was able to pull optimal thyroid values and become medication free. Through tons of research and years of working with others, I’ve learned SO much about how to build a happy & sustainable lifestyle and how to eat in a way that supports gut health, thyroid health, mental health, happy adrenals, & a balanced sex hormone profile. To quote Danielle LaPorte, “Life is full of opportunities to feel exactly the way you want to feel” – I am here to help others grow to their true potential, find freedom via food and exercise, and become their happiest and healthiest self.”

“My name is Zach Rocheleau and I am just a recently turned 24 year old guy who loves 3 things more than anything in this world: My Faith and Relationship with God, My Amazing Family (Just look how beautiful my mom is in the picture with me above!), And…….I absolutely love FOOD!!!!!! I’ll be honest when I say that I train hard in the gym so I can eat as much as I do but don’t tell anyone! I am the owner, founder, and head coach of Genetic Potential Academy. GPA is a fitness gym where we work with athletes from elementary to college and clients from soccer moms to great grandmothers. The amazing thing is that I use my flexible dieting principles with every single one of them and have had unbelievable success. From a 72 years old nearly dead man who was on every medication you could think of, to in a short 4 months, was completely off all medications and feeling like he was in his 30’s again! To a high school athlete who could not put on muscle but in a short 2 months, put on 20lbs of lean muscle! Just check out many more of the success stories that we have helped create! WHAT IS THE FLEXIBLE DIETING LIFESTYLE? Simply put, it is a lifestyle that utilizes nutrition as a tool to live the lifestyle you desire. Society is always deciding for us what we should be eating and classifying foods as “good” or “bad.” We are constantly scolded for liking ice cream, brownies, cereal or anything else you can think of. Then you have massive amounts of nutritional information thrown at you and it is almost impossible for you to understand all that so you just have to take the majorities word to be true (what you see on the news or in the magazines). This is why I created blog and community. I want to be your guide and give you everything you need to know while calling BS on everything else. I want to make this super duper easy on you because I know you are busy. I got your back!”

@beyondtheboxnutrition

“Beyond the Box Nutrition was founded on the belief that a healthy relationship with food inspires healthy relationships in all other areas of your life. While much of mainstream nutrition focuses on a prescribed plan or diets that are one size fits all, we want to challenge you to think outside the box when it comes to everything you know about nutrition. One of the most frustrating components of mainstream nutrition is that diets promise if you prescribe to their methods, you will feel good but often you end up frustrated and feeling bad about yourself instead. Caloric restriction and elimination of foods you love can generate negative feelings about food. We believe that you can enjoy foods you like while still making progress towards your goals. We believe it because we’ve lived it. All coaches at Beyond the Box Nutrition have experienced how the support, guidance and knowledge of a nutrition coach can help you break free of any barriers and achieve your goals. Our coaching philosophy is based on a sustainable approach that, while requiring dedication and commitment, allows for a fun and flexible relationship with food. Each client gets a personalized macronutrient (specific targets of protein, carbohydrates and fat consumed per day) plan that allows them to meet their specific nutrition goals. This is also known as macronutrient or macro counting. It’s not only about how many calories are in your food but what kind of calories comprise your food. Instead of the one size fits all approach, we’re here to provide needed adjustments along the way to ensure you stay on your path to meeting your goals. Our recommendations will be based on your age, height, current weight, current fitness regimen, dieting history, and current food intake. We want to ensure that your nutrition fits your lifestyle, not that your lifestyle needs to change to fit into a “one-size-fits-all” nutrition plan! We want to help you take the next step to reach your individual health and fitness goals.”

“My name is Ben Racke. As a kid growing up I was always an athlete, and the “big kid”. Finally after my freshman semester of college, I started to realize that I was heading down a path of being very unhealthy for the rest of my life. I started diving into training and trying to learn the ins and outs of health and fitness in 2014. I decided while being in school as a communication and business student that I wanted to make training and helping others my career. Not only am I passionate about training and nutrition, but I love communicating and helping people. I am a National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) Certified Personal Trainer, and NASM Fitness Nutrition Specialist. I train clients out of Dixie Fitness in Highland Heights, KY., and coach clients online with exercise/nutrition.”
