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 Fort Wayne nutritionists
Chanda W.
I have spent well over a decade vacillating between pretending I didn't care about my physical fitness and being less than 5 pounds away from my ever-present goal - but never quite reaching it no matter how hard I worked. And, I WORKED. I was on a perpetual 1200 calorie "diet" and working out 6 days per week or more. Through it all, my goal remained just barely out of my reach. Until Brian dialed in my nutrition for ME, according to what I need for MY life. I lost a pound a week beginning with the first week. This may not seem huge but I was only 5 away from my goal so a pound per week after being plateaued for YEARS was huge. He dialed in my food so that I eat more now than I ever have, I enjoy social events, an adult beverage occasionally, and even dessert without losing any ground. I feel amazing. My workouts are better, my mind is sharper, and I have more energy than ever before. Did I mention that I also get to eat more calories than I have ever allowed myself? Finally, I have the muscle definition at 40 that I have been seeking since my 20's and it actually came pretty easily once I was aware of what my body needs for fuel. Thank you Brian for helping me exceed my own upper limit!
