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.

Reviews for Appleton nutritionists

I researched several nutritional programs and Laura was one of them. There was something about her that made me feel comfortable and understood. She was so informative and always so quick to respond to any questions I had. I have been working with her for almost 2 months and have been very happy and definitely had success! She makes her program easy to follow and easy to stick with. She is always there to bounce things off of and chat you through different hurdles that come up. I have always stressed that I wanted to be healthy but still be able to enjoy life and whatever activities that come with that and Laura’s program allows that! Laura is my nutritional boss b*tch and anyone would be crazy not to use her for their nutritional or fitness needs! She is the best!!!

I found Heather by pure chance at an absolute low. I had been to doctor after doctor trying to chase down the issue of why I was getting sick day in and day out. I had a suspicion it had to do with my diet but couldn't find anything that helped. I was at a point where I couldn't work out, couldn't eat without feeling sick, couldn't sleep, I was depressed and just at an all time low. I found Heather and we started the elimination diet program she has worked out. We met and she was able to tailor it specifically to me. After getting started it was a complete transformation, I was no longer getting sick. I was sleeping better, able to be myself again. I am almost done with the elimination diet now and have been able to figure out with what food groups my intolerance lies. I am so incredibly thankful to have worked with Heather and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone else that would be interested in talking to a nutritionist or personal trainer.
