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.

Reviews for Wilmington nutritionists

Outstanding work from Sarah. Her work product to me is better than I've received from large companies. She is extremely responsive and clearly is knowledgeable about how to use nutrition and exercise to make body transformation. She also adds a personal touch where you feel like she truly cares about you and your personal journey. I've only been working with Sarah a week and I have already enjoyed measurable and visible transformation in my body. If you're frustrated with your diet program and need a change that will be quickly effective, you need to hire Sarah.

Great experience working with Brian. He's very knowledgeable and caring. When I first contacted Brian, I thought I knew about nutrition and what I should eat and what I shouldn't. I couldn't have been more wrong. After one month of working with Brian, I have already lost 15 pounds and am walking between 7,000 to 10,000 steps a day, up from barely 1,000 steps a day. Brian was very motivational and made sure to keep me on track with my food choices by multiple emails per day and constantly tweaking my diet. He answered my many questions and messages very promptly and kept me motivated.

Hi, my name is Meghan (this is Chris’s girlfriend, yes I know I’m on his login) and I have been working with Brian for 5 weeks regarding my nutrition and fitness. I have a long history of psoriatic arthritis and inflammatory bowel and have been gaining weight over the past year. I know I needed to get a healthy gut friendly diet and needed guidance on where to begin and how to tone my body. In the first three weeks I saw dramatic results! I lost about 8 pounds and a total of 7 inches. Brian has worked with me on resetting my metabolism and has taught me how to have a healthy lifestyle without super restrictive dieting. I have more energy and don’t feel bloated like I used to. I am excited to have my self confidence back! can’t wait to continue this journey as a life change and adapt it to a long term lifestyle. The following pictures show before and after. (Week one and week five)
