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.

I'm on my 2nd week with Alexis on a 4 week program. I chose to work with Alexis because she was the only nutritionist who followed up with an email to schedule a call to discuss my needs. She offered to meet me in person, measure me, check my pantry, and make sure I was set for the program. She's very responsive to texts and emails. Even though I talk to her on the phone once a week, I feel like she's right there supporting me along the way. I really love her approach to nutrition. It's not about deprivation but she also reminds me that it is a lifestyle change and I have to break my bad habits. I love my results so far and cannot wait until week 4 to see where I am. She is literally teaching me how to eat probably and treat my body with respect.

I booked Maik for a 1h session to check my current status and ask for advice on (muscular) disbalances and nutrition. All questions could be answered, I enjoyed the session a lot; Maik is an expert in his field. That made it a 4 star rating. The fifth one he got from me since he did a number of follow-ups, asking me what works/what does not and if needed hiw to adjust. Excellent!

I wish there was more follow up. I think what would change this experience from okay to amazing would be more communication. Alexis seemed really busy and uninvolved. She even missed a call follow up session and never contacted me even though she claims she did. Overall, it would be better if she was more engaged and motivated clients throughout the program. The meal plan is easy to follow for a week but it's hard to manage realistically after 7days. Some communication and motivation would help. The plan seems like it can work but you'll have to be extremely personally motivated to continue with the program. And if you are already that person, then you don't need help from this nutritionist. There are several other FREE meal plans out there.

This is not my first time working with Edward but this is my first time seeking his nutrition services. He hasn’t let me down yet!! In just 12 weeks, he’s helped me completely transform my day-to-day wellness habits. He’s educated me on various nutrient deficiencies and was able to pinpoint the nutrients I needed to remedy my lethargy, brain fog & mood swings. Now, I feel totally in control of my mineral and vitamin intake with his recommended food combinations. As a result: I now have more energy, I sleep better, my mood has stabilized and I’ve regained mental clarity. I just can’t gush enough over Edward’s knowledgeable and intuitive approach to giving me long term health solutions. Thank you so much!

I enjoyed working with Brian as he was very understanding and down to earth. He helped me in so many ways first to get centered and to focus on my myself, which was what I needed. I learned about the importance of nutrition how to be creative while at the same time having a balance. He has taught me so much about myself (my worth and value) and to focus on What I want in life. Before I came to Brian I had major cholesterol issues and was very stressed out. I needed some help. I reached to several parties and Brian was the first to respond and he stayed in contact with me throughout the entire time. I was impressed and he didn’t let me down. He was more than I expected. I appreciate him and will definitely continue to work with him in the coming year. He has taught me so much and there’s so much more to learn.
