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 Ashburn nutritionists
Shauna A.
Coach Brian is great! He provides you with all the resources you would need to achieve your goals whatever they may be. His website has countless tools to help you understand all the math and mindset behind healthy dieting. What I love is that he clearly illustrates fitness as fitness, nutrition and mindset all being connecting and how to tap into that. He is very knowledgeable, flexible and patient. He holds you accountable so if you need that push and stay true to the goals you are setting he is a great fit! Regardless of watching countless YouTube videos only after working with Coach Brian did I come to understand what fitness and wellness entail. He will work with you through email and text and is always responsive. I struggled with understanding nutrition and hitting my daily goals and Coach Brian sat with me and helped me outline my meals via the fitnesspal tracker in the way that best fit my lifestyle and needs. We kept track of my progress with weekly calls and and a spreadsheet to organize all our efforts my weekly meals, measurements etc... I have gained tools for a lifetime and even after our sessions ended he provided great advice and open communication. He is very easy to work with and makes fitness an enjoyable experience. I highly recommend him! Thank you Coach Brian!
