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're lifting frequently but don't have your nutrition and supplements dialed in, your massively stunting your growth. Nolan guided me over the last 30 days on a meal and supplement plan to achieve optimal results and for anyone considering taking things to the next level it's a no brainer to work with Nolan. He always responded to any of my emails in no more than a few hours (usually even less) and gave highly detailed answers. I managed to gain 7.7 lbs and feel extremely confident that the meal & supplement plan he created for me will continue to deliver results. My only regret is that I should've contacted Nolan much sooner. Don't make the same mistake I did and start with an optimal nutrition plan ASAP.

Elle is fantastic! Our law firm hired her for our Annual Wellness Month program and she came twice per week to present on nutritional topics and lead fitness classes. She obviously cares very much about her clients, is very knowledgeable, and the feedback on the classes was fantastic. We are thrilled she is part of this program!

I worked with Brian over the past 5 weeks where he really helped me improve my relationship with food & nutrition in a way that fit my lifestyle. Every challenge I faced, he was quick to support me and have a recommendation to overcome the obstacle. Did I mention he’s also available 24-7 for 1:1 texting support? There is no “one size fits all” and instead, Brian customizes your experience to match your lifestyle and goals. One thing I really struggled with in the past was having unrealistic expectations for maintaining a “healthy” life while also maintaining my social life (happy hours, girls nights, etc). Brian provided me with the tools to manage social alcoholic beverages while staying on track with my goals. All of the things that I learned from my time with Brian, are things that I now have engrained in my nutrition practices and will continue to produce success on my own. Even though I could take what I have learned and continue my journey on my own, I have chosen to keep Brian onboard because I enjoy his expert knowledge, accountability and having him in my corner rooting for my success.
