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.

If you are lost and don’t know where to start about understanding nutrition or what you could be doing better, please reach out to John! I first hired John for my boyfriend and he was awesome, so I decided to hire him for myself. This is the best experience I have ever had with my food relationship and overall understanding nutrition better. Not only does he have awesome tools, he is also very responsive and was able to answer any questions I had! Amazing investment of my money and I am very grateful!

Alexa is helping me solve what (for me at least!) is a big, overwhelming nutritional puzzle. I’m impressed with her apparent wealth of knowledge and how thorough she is. She communicates with me effectively and has been a pleasure to work with thus far.

Brian is great to work with, I hired him for a 5 week program and have extended it. He knows his stuff. I was really interested in help with nutrition, I didn’t think I was eating terribly, but had a lot of questions and wanted a professional to set me in the right direction and also help with meal planning for my family. Couldn’t be happier with Brian. Thanks! Drew Clough

Brian is a wealth of knowledge in terms of both dieting and overall all nutrition/health. Any question I had whether it be about diet, exercise, or even just stretching post workout, he had great answers or resources he could point me to. He is always available by text for real time questions about what to eat and planning out meals, and I enjoyed recapping my progress on our phone calls each week. I would highly recommend!
