Hi, I am a Kinesiologist and a Health Coach based in the UK.

Customer Question

Hi, I am a Kinesiologist and a Health Coach based in the UK. I would like to create an online program to help people to improve their eating habits and lifestyle. I plan to create a 28 day program with suggested meal plans, recipes and information about different ways of eating. As part of the cost of the program they will receive supplements from a reputable company which has 40 + years of experience. I was wondering if legally I would have any issues with this. Thanks

Hello,

No, you should not have any issues as long as the supplements are licensed by the MHRA (if a licence is required).

You should check with the MHRA if a licence is required for the supplements.

 

Also see here on applicable regulations:

May I help further?

Hi thank you for your answer. And with regard to suggested meal plans, recipes etc. It will be general info about food, different diets etc. Will I have any issues with that as I'm a qualified health coach (us qualification) rather than a nutritionist.


 


Sorry if I didn't make myself clear on original question.

No, I do not see any issues with what you propose to do.

All the best
