Get the right nutrition expertise

Top Nutrition Coaching has an extensive network of world-class registered dietitians who are ready to support you in reaching your health goals. No matter what unique challenges you face, we’ll match you with the best dietitian with the right expertise to help you thrive.
IBS
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a chronic disorder characterized by symptoms such as abdominal pain, bloating, and changes in bowel habits, making dietary management crucial for symptom relief. A specialized nutritionist can conduct a thorough assessment of an individual's dietary habits, identify trigger foods, and design a personalized low-FODMAP (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols) or other suitable dietary plan to alleviate symptoms. Individuals with IBS can gain valuable insights into managing their condition through a targeted and personalized dietary approach, ultimately improving their quality of life.
Constipation & Diarrhea
Individuals experiencing both constipation and diarrhea can find significant relief by collaborating with a nutritionist or dietitian who specializes in gut health. These symptoms may be indicative of various gastrointestinal issues, and a specialized professional can conduct a thorough assessment to identify potential triggers and recommend a tailored dietary plan. A nutritionist can help establish a well-balanced diet that includes an appropriate amount of dietary fiber, as both constipation and diarrhea can be influenced by fiber intake. They can guide individuals in identifying specific foods that may contribute to these symptoms and suggest modifications to address underlying gut issues.
Food Intolerance
Food intolerance can lead to a range of digestive symptoms, including bloating, gas, and discomfort. A nutritionist specializing in gut health can work with individuals to identify specific food triggers and design a customized diet that avoids these intolerances while ensuring optimal nutritional intake. Through a systematic elimination and reintroduction process, a nutritionist can help pinpoint problematic foods and guide individuals in crafting a well-balanced diet that meets their nutritional needs without triggering digestive issues.
Heartburn and Acid Reflux
A gut health nutritionist or dietitian can assess dietary habits and identify specific triggers that contribute to acid reflux, such as certain foods, meal timing, and portion sizes. A specialized nutritionist can then design a personalized diet that minimizes acidic or reflux-inducing foods, incorporates anti-inflammatory options, and focuses on gut-friendly choices. They may also recommend lifestyle modifications, such as avoiding lying down after meals and staying hydrated. Through a collaborative process, individuals can learn to make informed choices about their diet, creating a sustainable and enjoyable eating plan that reduces the frequency and severity of heartburn and acid reflux episodes.
Chronic Bloating and Gas
Individuals grappling with chronic bloating and gas can reduce these symptoms significantly by seeking guidance from a nutritionist or dietitian who specializes in gut health. Bloating and gas often stem from various factors such as dietary choices, food intolerances, and imbalances in the gut microbiome. A specialized nutritionist can conduct a thorough assessment of an individual's diet, lifestyle, and digestive symptoms to pinpoint potential triggers. Through this evaluation, they can then develop a personalized dietary plan that addresses specific intolerances, promotes a healthy balance of gut bacteria, and includes foods that are easier on the digestive system.
Leaky Gut
Leaky gut, or increased intestinal permeability, can lead to the passage of undigested particles into the bloodstream, potentially causing inflammation and various health issues. A specialized nutritionist can assess an individual's dietary habits, identify potential triggers, and design a personalized nutritional plan that promotes gut healing and reduces inflammation. They may recommend an anti-inflammatory diet, incorporating foods rich in nutrients that support the gut lining. Additionally, the nutritionist can guide individuals in the strategic use of supplements such as probiotics and specific nutrients known for their gut-healing properties.
Colitis and Crohn’s Disease
These conditions often involve inflammation and sensitivity within the digestive tract, making dietary choices crucial for managing symptoms. A specialized nutritionist can work with individuals to identify trigger foods and design a personalized diet that minimizes irritation to the inflamed areas, supports nutrient absorption, and promotes gut healing. By working closely with a nutrition expert in gut health, individuals with Colitis and Crohn's disease can gain insights into managing their condition through a targeted and personalized dietary approach, ultimately contributing to improved symptom control and overall well-being.
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
Individuals dealing with Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) can find significant relief and support by partnering with a nutritionist or dietitian specializing in gut health. A specialized nutritionist can help identify specific dietary triggers that exacerbate SIBO symptoms and design a personalized nutrition plan aimed at minimizing bacterial overgrowth. This may involve the strategic use of a low-FODMAP (fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols) diet or other therapeutic approaches.

Frequently asked questions

What makes an expert registered dietitian nutritionist?

An expert dietitian nutritionist will have an advanced degree, have completed a certain number of hours of supervised experience and required dietetics coursework, and have passed a board-certifying exam. All highly qualified nutritionists will have the letters “RD,” “RDN,” or “CNS” in their titles.

How much does the service cost?

There is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, as the cost of working with a registered dietitian nutritionist will vary depending on the individual's qualifications, experience, and location. However, on average, dietitians charge between $50 and $100 per hour for their services.

What does a two-week risk-free trial mean?

A two-week risk-free trial is a period during which a client can use a service without having to pay for it. If the customer is not satisfied with the service, they can cancel their subscription or contract within two weeks and not be charged.

What does the matching specialist help you with?

Most customers have certain criteria or prerequisites that they want the nutritionist to possess. Detailing what these criteria are will help a matching specialist connect you with the most compatible nutritionist for you.

What if I don’t like the recommendations a matching specialist provides?

If you don’t like the nutritionist that the matching specialist connects you with, be vocal about it. Speak up about the things that you like and don’t like about the current nutritionist you are working with. This information will allow the matching specialist to connect you with a more compatible nutritionist for you.

What’s the difference between a registered nutritionist and a registered dietitian?

Although the terms are often used interchangeably, registered dietitian nutritionists are the most educated and thoroughly-vetted nutrition experts available. Specifically, an RDN certification is the only nationally-held standard that a person can achieve.

Are registered dietitians covered by health insurance?

An increasing number of health insurance companies are providing coverage for nutrition counseling and therapy. Check with your provider or review your policy to see which services and providers are included in your network. This is the best way to receive affordable nutrition counseling.

What is a registered dietitian nutritionist?

A registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) is a food and nutrition expert. Every RDN has completed certain requirements and nutrition programs to earn their title. Every RDN has earned a bachelor’s degree with coursework approved by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).


After receiving their degree, every RDN in training completes a certain number of hours of supervised expertise, typically at health care facilities, community agencies, residential care facilities, or food service corporations. Finally, an RDN must pass a national registration examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.

Benefits of working with a registered dietitian nutritionist

Regardless of why you are seeking out an RDN, there are many ways that you will benefit from working with this healthcare professional.

Work Through Obstacles

When it comes to health, everyone has their own unique set of challenges. When you are too close to the problem, it can be difficult identifying where you need help and what strategies you can utilize to reach your goals.
A nutritionist serves as an outside expert who can help you recognize what is helping you reach your goals and what isn’t. It’s normal to face setbacks and obstacles when you are working towards your goals. Oftentimes, all you need is some professional guidance and a tailor-made health plan.

Accountability

We all have days when meeting our goals and sticking to our action steps feels more challenging than others. Having someone else by your side to hold you accountable for your goals can be a great motivator.
For instance, if you have an upcoming session with a nutritionist in the books, you will feel more compelled to make smart, healthy decisions that you can later share with your RDN. An RDN will also constantly remind you of why you are working so hard to achieve your goals. Whenever you are drowning in exercise routines or careful meal planning, you will never lose sight of what you are working towards.

Emotional Support

Food is a very central aspect of everyone’s life, and it is something that many people have strong feelings about, whether they are happy, sad, or angry associations.
As you get into replacing old habits with new ones and transforming key aspects of your feelings, emotions are likely to arise. Whatever these emotions may be, it can be beneficial to talk about them with family members, friends, and a trusted healthcare professional. Sharing your challenges will allow your RDN to help you navigate these hurdles and keep you from falling back into bad habits.

What to look for in a registered dietitian

When searching for a registered dietitian, you want to be looking for the best dietitian for you. Here are some of the most important factors to consider during your search.

Credentials

Before anything else, you want to ensure that the dietitian you work with is highly qualified and legitimate.While anyone can claim to be a ‘nutritionist’ or health influencer online, it's easy to recognize which healthcare professionals are registered dietitians and which ones are not. All you need to do is look at a dietitian's title. Dietitians can be identified by the letters "RD" (registered dietitian) or "RDN" (registered dietitian nutritionist) after their names.

Customer Service

Whether you are going through a medical emergency or have a health question that you need an answer to, your registered dietitian needs to be a strong communicator. As a vital member of your healthcare team, your RD should be able to respond to your phone calls, emails, and texts promptly. Beyond just accessibility, an empathetic disposition and supportive nature is also important . Good nutrition is a lifelong process that can have great benefits but it can also be a sensitive topic. Find someone who has great bedside manners.

Specialty

While some registered dietitians provide general nutritional advice, many have a specific area of expertise. For instance, some registered dietitians specialize in helping those with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes or renal failure, while others specialize in prenatal and postpartum nutrition. If you are seeking a registered dietitian to help you lose weight, make sure to find a registered dietitian who either specializes in weight management or perhaps has experience with disordered eating. There is a specialist for your specific needs.

Working Style

Working with a dietitian is a collaborative experience. Therefore, finding an RD that you are compatible with is essential. While some registered dietitians may have a more strict and "tough love" approach, others will be more gentle and nurturing during your sessions. There is no one right approach, but before hiring a dietitian, ensure that your working styles and personalities are well suited to each other.
