I've been so happy with my experience! The initial consultation was very thorough and I felt Alyssa was truly interested in helping me make better decisions about food. I loved the fact that she continued to reiterate that if I did not like what I was eating, this was not going to work. After 2-3 months, I feel much better after eating and feel like I am getting better about selecting foods to eat, regardless of the situation. Providing me with sample menus for a day has been so helpful - it has made all the adjustments that much easier. I think it is understandable that people are reluctant to meet with a nutritionist - fear of eating foods you won't enjoy is real! However, that is not the case with Alyssa; she helps me select foods that I like and/or that I've come to like! I've experienced having more energy, better workouts and weight loss over the past 2-3 months.

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.

    I have already lost a substantial amount of weight (went from 360 down to 170 in about a year). I currently weigh 190-195 and I have been trying to lose 15-20lbs for about two years with little to no progress. I strength train regularly and would like to at least maintain my muscle build, but I would like to lower my BF%. I have read a lot about different diets, and I am thoroughly confused.
