"She also writes and tracks my nutrition via My Fitness Pal and provides me with feedback. I, like a lot of people, have spun my wheels on fad, extreme diets & have went through the cycle of mustering up motivation to work out, only to fall on my face and quit, countless times. I thought, if I could just knock myself into submission then I’ll finally have the healthy lifestyle I so desperately wanted all of my adult life. Realizing that wasn’t working for me, I decided to reach out to several trainers in the Sacramento area and I interviewed all of them. Bree and I had a 30 minute phone consultation at the end of May 2019. She jumps right in and asks the hard questions. “What’s your why”? “What are your short term and long term goals”? Naturally and thankfully, I decided to go with Bree! What I’ve gotten is so much more than just a trainer/nutritionist. She’s helped deconstruct my fixed mindset around eating and working out. She challenged me to be more creative with my meals. She figured out what makes me tick and she uses it to coach me better. Yes I’ve lost a lot of weight & inches and my lifting game is strong. But what I’ve really gained is a healthier mindset and balance that I had a complete mental block in front of for years. Bree is a power house & one of the hardest workers I know. She is constantly looking for ways to be a better Coach for her clients. The way she coached me on Day 1 is very different today. She doesn’t have a cookie cutter approach to her clients. It’s very much tailored to you and what inspires and motivates you. To be clear, I am a stubborn person to train. I don’t always listen and I struggle with consistency. Yet she keeps pushing me with positivity. Having a personal trainer is obviously not free. I happily pay Bree every month because it’s so dang worth it. If you’re considering hiring Bree but aren’t sure it’s worth it, ask yourself these questions. When is the last time you worked out 3-4 times a week consistently for months on end? When is the last time you had a positive, confident and healthy relationship with food? When is the last time you were free of shame surrounding your body and food? I can say the answer used to be “never” for me. I struggled for years and this is the first time I decided to invest in me. I very much look forward to my Monday mornings with Bree and I look forward to many many more."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
