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.

Jamie is simply amazing! I have been working with her for 2 months and she has made me feel SO much better about my overall health and nutrition. Jamie responds so quickly whenever I have a question or need to check something with her! She is consistent in responding to check ins within a few hours every week, sending new workout routines every 4 weeks and really keeping me motivated. I think the best thing about Jamie is that she feels like a friend and will be your biggest cheerleader!!! She is so passionate about helping her clients and focusing on the mental health aspect of fitness/nutrition too which is SO important. I love working with Jamie and not only have I gained strength, muscle and lost some weight while working with her, I have also gained a lot of clarity on how to lead a healthier lifestyle that works for me and not what is prescribed by fitness influencers/companies. I trust Jamie 100% and highly recommend her! :)

Worked with Brian to get my weight loss journey back on track after becoming a dad and then dealing with Covid. He led me back on the right path teaching me the nutrition structure I needed to start moving things in the positive direction. In just a month, I'm already down my Covid gain, and on a good momentum to keep it going with Brian. He's very responsive by phone/text, and he doesn't over complicate his process. Fully recommend.
