Hiring a coach
I have seriously been tossing around the idea. I am not sure what to do. I am known for doing great diets and I consider it my strong point. I also have a very unique training style the majority being toward martial arts and only 2-3 real "weightlifting" days the other days are lots of other stuff. So would a diet guy even be able to handle that. So far the only benefit I can see is the fact it will save me lots of work. I was debating hiring them to do a bulking diet for me after 2 months has passed of dieting down. What are really the good sides of a guy who is already very good at nutrition hiring a coach.ACSM-CPT

Talk to someone who you may be able to hire, they are not all created equal. Find out what they think they could do for you. Personally if I don't feel I could help someone I would tell them straight and wouldn't work with them.
I have worked with a lot of people who thought they knew a lot as well. Choose someone with a proven track record.

The people at Tronopin seem to be very very qualified, its just on my student income 250 for 12 weeks is a lot of money, but I am able to add 6-8 lbs of muscle naturally in that time I'd be happy as hell. I could probably do it myself, but I'm thinking it might be better to hold it off to someone else.ACSM-CPT

Hiring someone not only saves you money in the long run but also teaches you things that you will know and use for the rest of your life..

I hired shelby starnes and can tell you have learned so much, and found out the majority of things most do is so wrong. Timing with nutrition is everything.

That being said, I think the most diets that BB'ers are nowhere near optimal in terms of variety of foods and overall nutrition. Not nearly enough emphasis on alkalinity to try to balance out the acidity of meat and grains.
Here's a great article by Berardi regarding pH balance in eating (yes, it's nearly a decade old, but it is still great information):

point being that some of these fly by night trainers are doing more damage then good when they do not understand just WHO they are dealing with. Hope they one day they will learn to do a proper bio check on the person so that they do not have a hidden prexisting condition..
