1. What is The Better Nutrition Program? Why should I follow this plan?
We all want better health, and better nutrition is the key! Better nutrition means giving your body the resources (nutrients) it needs to run better while avoiding what could irritate, overwhelm and disrupt its better functioning. How do you know if your current nutrition is better for you? That’s where The Better Nutrition Program comes in, to help you get and keep your better health, powered by better nutrition. Take The Better Nutrition Quiz to see what you’re already doing better (keep that!) and to help you identify and address what could be better. You may need additional tools to help you get better results and you can find those in The Better Nutrition Shop.
2. What is The Better Nutrition Shop?
Your one-stop shop for the better nutrition tools you need to get and keep the better health results you crave. We all learn differently, have different needs and goals. So, The Better Nutrition Shop delivers tools in several different ways – some you can do on your own or with your healthcare team member (like the better nutrition packages), others include working with us, and others are audio courses and workshops.
3. What Are The Better Nutrition Packages Like “Gut Instinct”? And what do I do with them?
For our bodies to get the resources they need, we need to identify what they need. Beyond a lab test (which will tell you only one aspect of your nutrition) or even your genetics, we need to know if your body has what it needs today to do all of its work. That means you need to evaluate what goes in and on your body more often (food, supplements, medications, skincare etc.), your current health and your health goals – and that is what the better nutrition tools in each package help you do. The Better Nutrition Tools are the first set of tools available to help you do this total evaluation in one place! – now that’s better! You can do them yourself, with us, or with your health care team member – why not send your evaluation to your trainer or doctor?! It’s as easy as forwarding your results via email and it will help them help you get better results. So, you purchase the package, use the tools, share your results and get started addressing what the tools showed you could be better. NOTE: no need to do everything at once, in fact, we think it’s better to #Do1ThingBetter each week.
4. What is The Affiliate Program? Are there ways to share your tools with my patients/clients?
Are you currently working with individuals and groups as part of their better health efforts? THANK YOU for your work! Or are you just so excited about better nutrition tools that you want to share them with the world?! Either way, you can partner with us to a) help others get better health powered by better nutrition and b) get better business outcomes too (make money, have more satisfied customers, be more satisfied yourself). So, we invite every practitioner to work smarter with better nutrition tools today! And we invite anyone to join The Better Nutrition Affiliate Program. With every affiliate purchase you make 50% (now that is better!) and there are no minimum sales. You also get private access to our team of dietitians and the opportunity to introduce your business to others. Learn more about our affiliate program here.
5. What is The Better Nutrition Subscription?
When I because a dietitian (nearly two decades ago), I realized we had a problem, the tools I had and that my patients were using, weren’t better. No wonder people aren’t getting better results. So, I created better nutrition tools and today I make them available to you. Move over MyPlate, BMI, and even RDA’s and hello better nutrition tools! The Better Nutrition Subscription offers you unlimited access to all the better nutrition tools, access to our team of nutrition experts LIVE in weekly Facebook sessions, and discounts on services, programs, and special members-only opportunities.
6. I have tried (and failed) so many diets and programs, why will this one be different?
You haven’t failed (repeat: I am not a failure 10 times fast)! Those diets and programs weren’t better for you. We are not saying that to get your business but to help you realize that if someone else’s plan or program didn’t work for you, that’s because it was someone else’s plan or program, not what your body needed to get better results! The #1 reason diets fail you is that they don’t meet you and your body where you are right now. The better nutrition plan is better because like we dietitians do with each patient, the plan starts with a self-assessment. The #2 reason that diets and programs fail is that they are not customized to who you are today and provide a roadmap for how you can get there in your life. The better nutrition plan helps you keep what is already better and focus on what needs attention. You may need additional resources to help you address what needs attention so visit the better nutrition shop or join the better nutrition subscription to help you make your better, not perfect, choices more often. That’s what will get you better results and YOU DESERVE BETTER!
7. What’s the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist or health coach?
A lot of letters (ha ha), but seriously, the letters RD or RDN mean that the person has a medical license and as such is bound by certain regulations as well as have specific in-hospital and medical assessment training. There are awesome nutritionists and health coaches, and there are not so awesome dietitians too. So rather than decide only one group is better, we think it is better to assess your practitioner choice based on what you need, what training they have (training in nutrition varies greatly), their experience and even reviews. My training (Ashley Koff RD) includes integrative nutrition training which means I combine traditional dietetics with other best practices. For example, I trained to evaluate your total nutrition – that’s what makes our Supplement Package such a better deal if you take any supplements, they should be part of your total nutrition plan, and they should be what is better for your body, today. Remember there’s no perfect health, no perfect diet or program (so be wary if someone is selling you that!) but there is better nutrition and we would love to work with you to help you get your better nutrition and the better health goals you crave!
8. I bought The Better Nutrition Subscription, now what?
Now’s when you start to get better! When you sign up you receive an instructions email (didn’t get it? That’s not ok! Click here and we will address ASAP) which explains what you will receive weekly from us, access to sign up for the private Facebook group (do that NOW) and the unlimited access to the Better Members only content. You also get the Road Trip audio and digital course. That is a great place to start, but you can also start with the digestive evaluation as you can’t get any better health results if your digestion is not better. Have more questions? Email us firstname.lastname@example.org or send us a note in the Facebook group (since you just signed up there right?!)
9. I bought The Better Nutrition Plan, now what?
Let’s use it so you start to get the better nutrition your body needs to run better. The plan is a PDF that you can type on with your computer. If you are like me and still prefer to write with pen and paper, print it out and get to work! Listen here as Ashley explains how to use the plan to build your better nutrition plan and start getting better results!
10. I bought The Better Nutrition Journal, now what?
Yay, you are one step closer to better health! Use this journal to track how you are eating, feeling, doing each day so you can see what is already better (keep that!) and what could be better. We track your typical day, not-so-typical day and your play day (if you don’t know what this is, let’s talk!). This tool is designed to be shared with your better health team members like your trainer, coach, and doctors so they can see your efforts and help you do better too! If you are taking supplements, make sure to note them and consider getting The Better Supplement Package so we can help you make sure your investment (supplements cost $$) is better for your body and for your wallet!
11. What Online Courses or Webinars Do You Offer?
We offer a variety of courses that help you, your clients, your students get and keep better health, powered by better nutrition, by making better choices more often.

12. I have ___________ (disease, condition, fear, health challenge) can you help me?
Likely. As dietitians, we work with many patients whose current or prior health issues range from well-known and very rare ones. We offer packages that are tailored to specific diseases like diabetes/pre-diabetes, auto-immune diseases, heart health/cholesterol as well as customizable options so you can tailor the package to your health condition (we are happy to help you pick your better nutrition DIY package items). Our online courses also cover a wide range of health conditions which previous clients have found to be helpful especially if you like more detail and the course format. Don’t see what you need or overwhelmed by the options in The Better Nutrition Shop? You can email us for help or schedule a personal better consult with a member of the Better Nutrition Team.
13. I am allergic to many foods; can you help me?
You bet. Whether food allergies, food intolerances, or environmental allergies are keeping you from better health, The Better Nutrition Plan, The Better Nutrition Packages and The Better Nutrition Subscription are designed to discover your better not perfect choices (from the foods and supplements that are better for your body) today. Often there is healing work to do too, so that means the digestive health assessment is a better place to start, check out the Gut Instinct package too (it’s included in your better nutrition subscription along with all the other tools).
14. I heard you speak at an event and would like to have you come talk to my group, how do I schedule that?
Thank you! Our Better Nutrition Workshops can be held in person or via-skype (for convenience, because we know life gets busy!). We speak to the key components of how to build your better nutrition plan and tips/tools on how to make better choices more often. For inquiries please contact TheBetterNutritionProgram@gmail.com
15. Do you work with kids?
Yes! We are passionate about helping kids and parents, get the better nutrition their bodies need to run better (and better be delicious, too!). We created a customized Kids package with the tools to help you and incorporate better nutrition choices, more often. You can also schedule a consult with one of the Better Nutrition Program Dietitians.
16. Do you work with schools?
You bet we do! We love Skyp’ing into schools to talk better nutrition. Let a member of The Better Nutrition Team know that you are interested in a workshop for your school (kids, teachers or parents) and they will send you more information.
17. I can’t afford anything you are selling, can you help me for FREE?
You bet! I created lots of better tools that are free so that anyone can start to make better nutrition choices more often. Check out the better freebies, better blogs, and better recipes section. You can also text BETTERNUTRITION to 44222 to begin and get your free better nutrition guide!
18. I purchased the Better Nutrition Membership and got a receipt from ‘BundlePod LLC’ is this incorrect?
From March 2016 through April 19, 2017 BundlePod LLC was handling the financial transactions and technology for the website(s) known as AshleyKoffApproved.com, AshleyKoffRD.com and for The Better Nutrition Membership. If you need more information, please contact a member of The Better Nutrition Team here.
19. I signed up or bought something by mistake or it isn’t what I wanted, how can I get a refund?
We want you to be happy, and we also want to reduce stress for all of us, so we have a one-time 24-hour cancellation (request should be made by email) from the time of purchase of The Better Nutrition Subscription. There are no refunds after purchase of digital tools like The Better Nutrition Packages, The Better Nutrition Plan, The Better Nutrition Journal or The Road Trip to Better Health or other course(s). This may seem harsh but as a business, we try to have better rules and since these are immediately usable this seems fair. Happy to discuss your personal situation though, just email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
20. I would love to intern or work for you!
That’s awesome! We love to hear from individuals who are passionate about enabling better health for others. Let a member of the Better Nutrition Team know more about you and your interest by sending us a note here.
21. Are you paid to promote products?
Yes and No. Over the years, I developed a few paid partnerships like those I currently have with Nature’s Path, Espira for Avon, Califia Farms, MegaFood, SmartyPants, PerfectBar and Natural Vitality. I have other companies that pay me to promote their products on my social media. In all these cases, I make every effort to adhere to the most current methods for identifying that paid relationship, noting that these differ across platforms. I am not paid to promote all their products, just the ones that I approve. I also do not have exclusivity in any of my contracts, meaning that I am not paid to say that I only recommend their product. On that note, I have never been paid to approve (Ashley Koff Approved (AKA)) a product or service. Those products that are on my AKA list may promote that on their package or in their social media or on their website free of charge. For more information, please review the Disclosure.
22. My question is not addressed here
We tried to make a list of questions that we get frequently, but we are better not perfect, so this list may not address your question. Thankfully, we can easily connect! Please send me and a member of the Better Nutrition Team a message here. We make every effort to respond within 48 business hours and if you feel that your need is time sensitive please note that in the subject line.
