"She knows nutrition and you will be amazed how much you can actually eat and still lose weight. I think she has a unique weight loss method I have never seen or read about before and it’s exciting. It makes you feel empowered and free, and it is dispelling many of the beliefs I previously held regarding food and how much I can actually eat. I am realizing food doesn’t have to be the enemy and it’s about finding the right balance, and eating the right foods. I have used many of those online calculators to figure out my BMR, calorie needs, and was always depressed with the number and how little calories according to those calculators, I could eat to just maintain my weight. I am happy to say, I am eating way more than that and still losing weight. I no longer feel if I eat one bad thing my weight loss is ruined. Before if I messed up, I would see it on the scale the next day, but now because of the foods Laura has me eating, my metabolism is much more flexible and adaptable. As far as I am concerned my metabolism appears to be working better than it has in years. If you want to lose weight, the right way, the healthy way, the not feeling deprived way, Laura is for you. If you love food like I do, but still want to lose weight, this is who you should work with. I am looking forward to continuing to work with Laura so I can reach my health and weight loss goals!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
