    Dylan was a fantastic nutrition coach, and most importantly, a friend through the process. I've always struggled with various forms of inflammation, including leaky gut and celiac's disease. In terms of where I wanted to go, I laid out my desire for weight loss, unknowingly getting much more than I bargained for. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet, something I later found out to be almost identical to the famous Atkins diet. From there I was given a personalized plan. During the process, Dylan was always available to contact. At one point, he joined for a grocery store spree where we ended up having a potluck together with my family. Progressing through the diet, I found that when I ate my inflammation wasn't acting up anymore! I couldn't believe it! A month later and I had lost 10lbs. Dylan made sure to keep up with me when I was getting weak or when the family left out snacks and candy. I would thoroughly recommend Dylan as both a dietician and health coach to anyone looking to see what can happen when they stick with something! :)

    Tami is the best dietician i have ever worked with! I've been seeing Tami for over 7 years and I'm the healthiest I've ever been. I've gained muscle/lost body fat, my food plan is wonderful with lots of variety and I feel great. And Tami is always responsive to my texts and emails. I recommend her to all my friends and family. I couldn't be luckier to have found her.

    I was having weight issue and was not really eating much but unable to loose weight. Even 1 lbs! I got an appointment with baharak and she spent an amount of time discussing my eating habits etc...then I was provided with a diet plan along with activity plan. Since Nov 2017 till now I lost abt 13 pounds and never felt so great. Size from 10 to 6 now;) . Definitely recommend this dietitian, she will teach you her knowledge, encourage u to continue ur diet unlike some other dieticians which keep u hanging on them for ever !

    Lauren is a talented dietician I had the pleasure of first working with 3 years ago. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend for anybody seeking support around weight and health concerns. Lauren provides a 'no-diet' approach and incorporates really exciting mindful eating education - preventing the typical yo-yo cycle created by short term diets. I continue to refer people to Lauren to this day because I know she can help, and she'll do so with her wonderful sense of humor and compassion.

      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.
