    I have been consulting with Kim Mosiman on a professional level to lose weight. She is my nutrition consultant and I consider her my go to person to achieve a healthier lifestyle. Eating healthy and fixing healthy meals for my family is a challenge for me. Kim takes away the confusion of what to eat, when to eat it and provides great, easy recipes. The weight is finally coming off of me! I am not starving and feel so much better about my food choices. I tell everyone I know that they need to talk to Kim! She's the best!

      I am a registered dietitian and nutrition consultant currently living in Urbandale, IA, yet servicing clients from all over the Midwest. Every individual has the ability to attain the kind of personal health that not only makes them look and feel better, but will help him or her to maximize potential in all areas of life. Living a healthy lifestyle isn’t a fad or a quick fix, but has a transformative power when it is easily integrated into your daily lifestyle. Unlike other programs, which aim to meet the general public, I will get to know you, your lifestyle, your concerns and personal goals. As a registered dietitian, we will work together to create the kind of individualized program that works for you and your lifestyle. Ask me about an initial consult, cooking class, 24-day challenge, grocery store tour and more!

      I believe that everyone has their own path to health and fitness. No two workouts are going to have the same outcome for people, no two people have the same exact eating habits. I work with each individual client to find what works for THEM. I am a certified NASM Personal Trainer who decided that with the craziness of life that not only finding a gym, but then going to said gym, on top everyday duties is a challenge for most people. I wanted to make fitness something that everyone could do from the comfort of their home while enjoying the perk of a Personal Trainer. I specialize in women's health, pre/post-natal, and fat loss. I'm also a certified Nutritionist working with people on changing behaviors. Nutrition can seem complicated, but it shouldn't have to be. I work with clients to see where their strength and weakness occur and how together we can make changes that will last a lifetime. I know life can be expensive and health should be the first thing we think about but often times its the last thing in the budget. My goal is to provide top notch training, customer service, and support without breaking the bank.

      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.
