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 reached out to Brian to assist with the nutritional aspect of my powerlifting goals for a meet later in 2020, he was hired early in 2020. Brian was professional in his approach and thorough in his explanations and takes an educational approach that empowers and equips clients with knowledge moving forward so they can understand their own nutritional needs in the future and adjust accordingly. I would recommend Brian for others seeking to learn more about nutrition and meet their goals.

Gigi’s is great! She is extremely professional and responsive. I sort of found her out of the blue on thumbtack and liked what I read about her and so I reached out. Within days I was starting my nutrition and workout program with her and it has really been working for me. I have been losing weight and feeling tons better. I have been to other trainers and paid more than double and have not seen these results. It’s hard for me as a vegetarian to find people who can work with my diet in way that I can sustain. Truly the attention to the nutrition plan sets Gigi apart. I highly recommend her.

I am pumped to start this new journey of health and fitness. Enrique has been very helpful in answering all the questions I have had and is extremely knowledgeable. Making the decision to find the right nutritionist for me has been a process. I appreciated the fact that Enrique listened to my goals and explained exactly how and what I needed to do to achieve them. I highly recommend his program.

I am working with Nolan on his Nutrition Only program. I am an avid marathon runner. Nolan provides an exact meal plan to follow. No counting calories or macros. Nolan has been extremely responsive to my many questions via email. He has taken my endurance running into consideration and will always asks how my running performance is doing while following the meal plan. I am halfway to my goal of dropping 10 pounds! I am confident Nolan will get me there! I’ll post pictures and another review once I hit my target weight!

I reached out to Brian initially because I was diagnosed with Type II Diabetes. I had reached a weight I was unhappy with and my eating habits were out of control. Right away Brian put me at ease and made me feel like managing my diabetes and getting a healthier lifestyle was very much within my reach. His approach to nutrition and fitness is a slow, one-day-at-a-time style that really works for me because I HATE being pressured into dramatic changes. I'm sure he could create a more hurried plan for someone who wants to do that, but for me something methodical is ideal. ***And that approach so far has worked for me. In one week of very minor changes, I have already lost 3lbs and gained a new attitude towards my evolving lifestyle!*** It's also apparent that Brian has experience working with lots of different women in lots of different situations. There is no one-size-fits-all approach to his coaching. He tailors everything to fit YOU and adjusting your habits to get you to your desired outcome. Finally, Brian is very serious about his clients' success. He even encouraged me to text him MORE OFTEN to celebrate micro successes throughout the day/week. It's pretty rare to find a professional like this who wants you to contact them more often than less often! I'm happy to be working with Brian and I hope that anyone looking to work with a compassionate and knowledgeable fitness/nutrition professional will give him a chance. Take that first step now, it is worth it!

(In reference to Nutritional Guide) The information was helpful but wasn’t quite what my mom and I were looking for. I felt as though there was a huge miscommunication about the program and that when we spoke first over the phone, we should have been informed about what exactly his program entailed along with clarification of consultation vs. a session which are two totally different things. We had no problem paying the fee but were caught off guard and as a result were unprepared monetarily because it turned out our first time meeting face to face was in fact a session. Also, information that was already accessible through Mr. Dupart’s page was the main discussion. And while it was quite helpful, we felt as though that’s not something we should have been charged for (due to its prior accessibility) which is what our confusion also stemmed from. Nonetheless, it was a learning experience and we were grateful for Mr. Dupart’s time.
