My daughter had put on weight and needed to lose this for health reasons - inspiring a teenager to lose weight effectively is not an easy task but Vicki has been fantastic. She clearly explains everything - and why you need to cut certain foods from your diet and add others in - her meal plans are quite easy to adhere to and work into a family menu - the teenager was very happy to see she could enjoy snacks between meals. Four weeks into the plan and we can see the results not only both on and off the scales but my daughter feels healthier and has more energy which inspires her to maintain her new healthy eating and exercise program. I would recommend Vicki highly to anyone who not only is looking to lose some weight but also just to get into to a healthier and more nutritious way of eating.

New Year, New Me! That's what I said last year. One of my goals was to improve my diet and nutrition. My fitness goals were on track but I felt the nutrition side of the equation was lacking. Plus, I was trying to reduce my meat intake and try a vegan/vegetarian diet. I talked to a few friends but couldn't find something that worked for me. I struggled through most of the year failing miserably at my nutrition goals. Things changed midway through the year. I meet Julianne at a meetup and we got to talking about endurance sports and nutrition needs. Julianne is a plant-based triathlete. I was impressed at her accomplishments and decided to book a session with her. She was patient as I asked a million questions. She helped me understand how I could improve my diet, and gave me simple ways so I could track success. I attended a few of her wellness retreats where she taught us more about plant-based nutrition and served us some delicious food. It was really exciting as I learned that my diet didn't have to be just tofu and water. Phew! Julianne helped me understand exactly what I needed to eat to feel stronger and perform better. I feel so much healthier and energized knowing what to eat. Having the right guidance has fast tracked this. I highly recommend her!

Let me tell my story. I was looking for place where I can challenge my body and relax my brain. From the bagging I felt that this place is THE PLACE. 7 am bootcamp is really hard for non-morning person. After first 2 weeks, I started feeling more energy during the day. So mornings are not that bad. Next big thing for was a Tough Mudder run. Lori believed in me and helped to prepare. I finished it. 14 miles up/down Tahoe Northstar Ski resort, 20+ obstacles, 1 ice bath(google Arctic Enema), 2 electroshock etc. Next month I was playing volleyball and completely torn my ACL. With Lori's help I successfully went thru rehab. She is amazing educated coach. Lori knows everything about human body and muscles, diets and nutritions etc. My nutritionist told my exactly the same as Lori did a couple months earlier. After 1 year I lost about 30 pounds and 4 sizes :) So if you are willing to work hard and achieve a results this is a right place.

I particularly enjoyed my interaction with Tara, the Nutritionist. I felt she took the time to listen to my stubborn ideals and worked through some issues with me. I can tell they are still in the start-up phase, so some things need to be sorted out. But the team there is well put together, the training sessions were difficult but well paced and I felt energized. Good find.

When I first began working with Christine Rosche, MPH,CNS,CBT, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist and Biofeedback Therapist 2 month ago in May of 2016 I was dealing with chronic constipation/digestive issues, sleep and focus/memory issues, significant anxiety, pain in my right side and inflammation issues. I had tried many approaches with no lasting results. Christine's extensive background in evidence based functional nutrition and skills to identify the core/root issues of my long standing constipation resulted in a complete resolve of my digestive issues in just 4 short weeks. I learned how the foods I was eating contributed to inflammation and digestive issues. I received a customized diet that works for my unique body chemistry and lifestyle needs. I love what I am eating, am not on a diet and am continuing to experience great results each week. The Biofeedback Therapy and Stress Management Counseling has produced dramatic results in just 8 weeks Job Performance and Communication at work is improved significantly. Before I was out of control, now I am in control and improving every day in my personal and professional life My anxiety and sleep issues have resolved and I have great job and family success! Christine's approach is integrative and combines the best of all modalities in a thorough, evidence based approach. She is like a detective, getting to the core issues very quickly and helping me resolve them permanently, without dieting or deprivation I recommend her multi faceted, evidence based cutting edge approach to anyone who is ready to make lasting changes in their health and lifestyle and is ready for permanent results

I love Cambiati Wellness. I knew I needed a lifestyle change but was having a hard time actually making it. I did the 28 day cleanse and lost 10 pounds. I needed to lose more so I joined Club Cambiati and have been so happy with the support I receive. I get to meet with a nutritionist twice a month and she has been so helpful with giving me real world ideas of how I can stay on program based on what is going on with my life that week. I also love the scale, how it not only measures weight but actual fat loss and inflammation, etc, I know a lot about nutrition but I am continually learning more from Rebecca and Julia at Cambiati Wellness. If you are looking to lose weight or just clean up your diet and get healthier, this is definitely the place for you.

I've been using Jessica McCartney Fitness as my Nutritionist since mid-July. She took the time to read over food logs, various forms I filled out, and set me up with a plan. She monitors my food logs, sends me recipes and various helpful articles, tips, motivation to keep me on track. In addition, she checks in with me every other week, by phone, in order to fine tune my eating plan. In between those phone calls, she even sends motivational texts and tips. Since I've started with her, I've lost 10 pounds in six weeks! And, I'm not hungry. I'm going to continue with Jessica in order to reach my goals. With her as my Nutritionist partner, I now feel like I can reach those goals. Erica Thompson

Brittinie is amazing!! I first asked for her services when I headed off to Afghanistan. I knew I wanted to lose some weight but had no idea of how to do it. She took the time to talk to me when I was available all the way on the other side of the world. She worked with the limited options for food that I had and even gave me suggestions on what type of vegan protein to use since I’m lactose intolerant and whey protein destroys my stomach. She gave me plenty of advice and motivated me throughout my transformation. I got to Afghanistan at 253lbs and now I’m sitting at a healthy 190lbs and I feel and look great according to my friends and family. Her great words of encouragement, motivation and accountability got me through the rough times and I’m so thankful for her help.

I feel absolutely wonderful now that I am "eating healthy" and staying away from all the foods that have been sabotaging my quest to loose weight and feel better. I love Lorie's conference calls, her encouragement and her expertise in the nutrition arena. It all just makes sense. I am looking forward to becoming the person I am meant to be in all aspects now that I am on this journey to a "healthier lifestyle". I highly recommend Lorie Gehrke at Mariposa Living. She is an excellent nutritionist as well as just a great, fun, positive, inspiring person to be around. Thanks, Joanna.

About

What I offer clients is the balance of science and flavor and a deep and comprehensive understanding of what makes the body healthy and what makes food taste great! I have always been a science geek: my primary degree is in the biochemistry of nutrition: how vitamins and minerals, enzymes and all the basic components of foods integrate in and with our body to sustain life. With my secondary degree in culinary sciences, I studied food chemistry, biochemistry and culinary methods- how foods work together in recipes, how to create and be creative in the kitchen. This fusion of interests is something I am proud of and excited to share with others as they strive to live a healthier life

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.
