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.

Nolan is great. He is very responsive to messages or questions, and I enjoyed him educating me what we’re doing with our nutrition plan. I have a PharmD and although I’m not an expert in nutrition, I could tell Nolan’s answers to my questions were legitimate explanations and consistent with my own knowledge of biochemistry, which, for me, really instilled confidence that I found a great guy who knows what he’s talking about. He didn’t make up BS or recommend anything I thought was unsafe. When I was looking for a nutritionist, he was able to provide exactly what I was looking for. Above all, I’m really happy with the results I got from working with Nolan. I highly recommend Nolan. -Francisco ;-)

Originally went in for nutrition services and ended up hiring Will as both nutritionist and personal trainer. Going into the third week and I am already feeling a big difference in my mood: since I got morning sessions, I go into work with a much better attitude and I feel more alert. I needed someone to keep me accountable to really make a change in my nutrition and Will has definitely helped me every step of the way. Will explains every exercise from the form, what muscles we are targeting, to any modifications if needed. Any question I have had Will has thoroughly answered. He has been very responsive from the beginning, a great communicator and motivator. I’d definitely recommend Will to anyone looking to make a serious change in their lifestyle.

I was originally looking for a nutritionist but after finding Will who did both nutrition and training, I was encouraged to also do training. So far he has been very helpful. I would never do any training myself, and I have now notice the difference in my health and strength while training with Will. I would highly recommend him as a trainer, he can be very encouraging and helpful even if you don't have any experience at all.

I have hired Will as my nutritionist and he’s been nothing but professional and helpful in not only my dieting but as well as anything fitness related. Would highly recommend for anyone, of any fitness level, looking to take their diet to the next level.

It's been absolutely amazing working on my health and nutrition with Brian! I contacted Brian because I finally made a habit of exercising 3-5 days a week but I wasn't losing any weight. I started a 5 week program and have already lost 9 pounds as of week 4! Brian helped me understand the importance of macros and how they can help achieve the body I want. I've been eating healthier, feeling better and have more energy throughout the day (my wife has even started to notice me having more energy doing chores around the house!) Brian has been a great resource to have since he is available daily through text. I always look forward to our weekly calls to set achievable goals, learn more information and ask questions about anything related to nutrition and health. If you're looking for a nutritionist, Brian is your guy!

If you're looking for someone who is very knowledgeable on Nutrition, Brian is your person! He helps explain things to you that makes it sense and also breaks the program down to where it's easy for you to follow. I was able to lose 8 pounds in 5 weeks! The biggest thing for me was my relationship with food and Brian helped me retrain my brain on that. Thanks Brian for everything!

Dr. Olivier has a flexible schedule and is easy to work with. Our meetings are designed to be able to address all questions I may have, while she does some assessments and looks at some blood work to best address nutritional deficiencies I may have. I can ask questions between meetings via text or email at no additional charge. She is reasonably priced and very knowledgeable in her area.

4 P’s define Will’s training passion, punctuality,Proper form and progress. It has been a month since I started training with Will and within few weeks there is some difference in the way I am training. I would highly recommend Will not only for his training but also for keeping an eye on nutrition with food logs as well as he captures videos to make sure where we are going wrong while doing exercise. Get Will Power! to see gains.

This is my first time ever working with a nutritionist and I was pretty nervous at first but thanks to Verena I'm glad I made the plunge and did it. She is always available to respond to any questions I have and is very professional. She will be honest about your eating habits but is very understanding on her approach to make you feel good throughout your journey. Verena will give you the tools and knowledge you need in order to be successful in setting up a healthier lifestyle balance.

Short version: Nolan will give you every tool in the shed to successfully reach whatever goals you set for yourself. It is up to you to use those tools to get the results you want. Obviously, everyone's progress will be different, but Nolan's consistency in his support, responsiveness and attention to detail will not waiver. Long version (if you're still reading): My wife and I both started working with Nolan, neither of us having any experience with meal planning or a consistent workout routine. Nolan's attention to detail in his nutrition and exercise programming made it extremely approachable for anyone who has never tried a meal plan or a exercise regime before. He takes the guess work out of everything, which reduces any reservations you may have when trying something different for the first time. Nolan makes himself available to you almost 24/7 and always replies promptly to even the most rudimentary questions (we had a lot). There was never a time he did not have a suitable alternative for my wife or myself when we could see something was not working well for us. I can genuinely say that in just 4 weeks, both my wife and I have made appreciable progress to our wellness as a couple and our overall health. I would highly recommend Nolan and the services he provides.

For over a year I unsuccessfully tried to lose weight by dieting and exercising, I could not maintain a diet regime since I was constantly hungry and my weigh did not seem to move weather I tried to eat well or not which demotivated me. I contacted Brian for help with my nutrition, I was optimistic after our first phone conversation because I was not given a list of foods to eat/not to eat but instead was asked to do simple and attainable changes on my diet and I was not required to meal prep or buy special food. I lost 2 pounds on my first week and then a pound per week as per our goals. My belly always felt full, my energy was high and I actually finished below my calorie target frequently. As a very nice side effect my fiancé lost 2 pounds as well. What I truly consider as the best I took from our work together is that I learned what and how to eat, in a sustainable delicious way. I could eat at the work cafeteria same as before, order my box dinner same as before, and make almost no changes in my lifestyle just by understanding the contents of the food I was already eating. I will get Brian's services again once the wedding is close to make sure I look my best on our special day.
