Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a nutritionist cost?

A nutritionist provides expertise and guidance to help clients with all diet-related health matters, including losing weight, gaining muscle, improving their sports performance, and managing diabetes or high cholesterol. Nutritionists can help people learn to follow special diets in a healthy way, such as becoming vegetarian or vegan or developing a low-sodium or gluten-free eating plan. The average national cost of a nutritionist is $60 to $100. Nutritionists often require an initial consultation with a new client, during which they’ll take a medical history, assess the client’s nutritional needs, and determine the best course of action; this first meeting usually averages $100-$120 for a 45-minute to 90-minute consultation. Subsequent nutritional counseling sessions generally cost less, ranging from an average of $45 for a half-hour session to $60-$90 for a one-hour session. Like many professional service providers, nutritionists may offer discounts through package pricing. For instance, a one-month package with two sessions and email support costs an average of $190; a three-month package with three sessions and email support costs an average of $360; and a six-month package with six sessions and email support costs an average of $540.  

Are nutritionists covered by health insurance?

Nutrition counseling can be a critical component of good health care, especially for people recently diagnosed with diabetes or high cholesterol who need to adhere to a specific diet. People also meet with nutritionists for help developing a healthy vegetarian or vegan diet, developing an eating plan to lose weight or gain muscle, or improving their sports performance by changing their diet. Nutritionists may be covered by health insurance depending on your reason for meeting with them. Nutrition counseling is more likely to be covered if it is part of a doctor-prescribed treatment for a particular medical condition, such as diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure or coronary heart disease. For example, Medicare covers medical nutrition therapy services only for people diagnosed with diabetes or kidney disease, as long as they get a referral from their doctor. Also, insurance providers more often cover nutrition visits if the patient has been referred to a registered dietitian within the carrier’s network of providers. Insurance plans vary greatly, so research your benefits before visiting a nutritionist.

Stacy has been a marvelous helper for me! I had never worked with a nutritionist before but she answered all my questions and gave me great insights into how I was doing and what I could improve on. In 2 months I've seen amazing progress with her, and I couldn't recommend her enough. Check her out!

I hired Christina from Whole Health to assist with nutrition and weight loss goals as well as incorporating healthier eating habits to support a thyroid condition and general well being. So far I have been very impressed working with Christina. She is very knowledgable, and goes above and beyond by sending me email updates and recipies. She is very good about introducing changes a little at a time so not to become overwhelmed. I have experienced excellent results with my goals so far!

I absolutely loved working with Emily! She has taught me so much about nutrition and how to have a healthy relationship with food. I can say that my progress is still ongoing but everything she taught me are things I will use for the rest of my life. This is the first time I have felt my new eating habits are something I can easily do forever since it’s not a diet or restrictive in any way. Emily is so friendly and motivating I definitely recommend her!
