Frequently Asked Questions

As you look for a nutritionist to help you reach your health goals, you may realize you have a few questions. Here are some frequently asked questions and the answers you'll need to find the best nutritionist for you.

What makes an expert nutritionist?

An image of an arrow icon
When looking for an expert nutritionist, there are a couple of things to consider. The best nutritionists are registered dietitians, the highest credential in the nutritional field. Dietitians have extensive education and training, and all professionals undergo an extensive vetting process. Only 2.5% of all applicants to Top Nutrition Coaching are accepted into our network.

An expert nutritionist uses food and nutrition to promote healthy habits that contribute to your overall health. An expert nutritionist will also provide tools to manage pre-existing diseases or conditions.

How much does the service cost?

An image of an arrow icon
The cost of this service can vary, and it's best to plan for fluctuations in price based on a person's specific health needs. Prices can also vary based on the dietitian's specialty, location, and desired services. It's also best to look at the cost of a nutritionist's services as an investment in your health that will continue to pay off.

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

An image of an arrow icon
We offer a two-week risk-free trial to give customers a chance to try our service with the opportunity to get a 100% refund. If customers decide they enjoy the product or service, they can sign up for the service. A two-week risk-free trial is an excellent way to determine if a particular program or service will work for you, with the opportunity to get a refund if it doesn't work for you.

What does the matching specialist help with?

An image of an arrow icon
A matching specialist will consider your answers and 27 different variables, including habits, motivation, nutrition challenge, activity level, time constraints, and more, to ensure we match you with the right experts. Once they have a list of nutritionists that they feel could work for you, they'll reach out to you and talk you through the process of picking the best nutritionist. After they recommend a few experts that they feel will work best with you, they will connect you with the nutritionist for an intro call.

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

An image of an arrow icon
If you realize that you don't like any of the recommendations your matching specialist provides, you should share that with the matching specialist. That way, they can consider your feedback and connect you with a more suitable specialist.

What's the difference between a nutritionist and a dietitian?

An image of an arrow icon
A dietitian and nutritionist have similar roles, but not all nutritionists will have the same credentials. Certified Registered Dietitians (RDs) or Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) are the highest quality credentials in the nutrition field. While a dietitian and a nutritionist will help you with your health, a dietitian may also diagnose and help treat illnesses for their clients. Dietitians and nutritionists work with their clients to discuss optimal nutrition and healthy habits.

Does health insurance cover nutritionists?

An image of an arrow icon
Some health insurance plans may cover the services a nutritionist provides, depending on the reason for the meeting. For example, some insurance plans will cover preventive services offered by a nutritionist. The Affordable Care Act requires most insurance plans to cover nutritionists' nutritional counseling.
An image of Danielle Smith, Top Nutrition Coaching RD

What is a nutritionist?

A nutritionist meets with clients, usually in a one-on-one setting, to help them develop individualized habits that will improve their health and nutrition. There are many different kinds of nutritionists, including ones who specialize in sports nutrition, weight loss nutrition, pediatrics, and more. However, some nutritionists will have greater credentials and expertise than others.  
Regardless of the specialty, Certified Registered Dietitians (RDs) or Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) are the highest quality credentials in the nutrition field. Both certification levels are qualified to provide medical nutrition therapy in several fields, and some may have additional experience in a particular area, like GI health. However, not all practitioners who claim to be nutritionists will necessarily hold these credentials.

Work With A Dietitian

What does a nutritionist do?

A nutritionist will give you the tools you need to be successful in your health and nutrition journey. They will create an individualized plan that meets your specific health needs. A nutritionist will meet with you one-on-one to track your progress, adjust your plan as needed, and determine the best treatments and methods to work closer to your goals.

More than anything, an expert nutritionist holds you accountable while providing the best advice for your specific nutritional goal. Everyone will have different health needs and situations, and nutritionists can help minimize confusion and accelerate progress. Whether you're an athlete training for the next race, a parent seeking healthy meal plans, or want to lose weight safely, a nutritionist works with you to achieve your goals.

Benefits of working with a nutritionist

Working with a nutritionist can significantly benefit you on your health journey. Unfortunately, no universal diet or health plan works for everyone. We all experience different barriers and have unique needs, and a nutritionist can help streamline our individual nutritional journey. Regardless of the nutritional or health goal, nutritionists can make it easier to live healthy and wholesome lives. Here are a few reasons why.

Nutritional advice specific to you

An image of an arrow icon
A nutritionist will give you targeted tools, information, and resources to help you succeed on your specific health journey. You will receive a plan detailed to you and your health needs to help you reach your goals.

Meet your fitness goals

An image of an arrow icon
A nutritionist will help motivate you to stay on track with your fitness or health goals, and you'll be able to accomplish these goals with a nutritionist's help. A nutritionist will help you understand the best ways to approach your health journey to reach your goals most efficiently.

Understand how foods work with or against your body

An image of an arrow icon
An expert nutritionist can help you pinpoint certain reactions your body has to specific foods. Nutritionists can also help you understand signs that your body isn't reacting well to certain food groups and may be able to recommend alternatives for you.

What to look for in a nutritionist

When finding the right nutritionist for you, never settle for inadequate support or lesser services. You deserve the best partner for your nutritional needs, and you want to find someone willing to put in the effort to help you succeed. It's best to schedule an initial consultation with prospective nutritionists to vet their personality, impressions, experience, and overall feeling about their services. In general, you should always keep an eye out for important qualities when looking for a nutritionist.

Someone that works well with you

An image of an arrow icon
It would be best to work with a nutritionist who makes you feel comfortable, especially with sharing personal health information. The matching specialist can help you find the best nutritionist for your goals.

They give you tips and tools you can use in the future

An image of an arrow icon
A nutritionist who will give you tips and tools to help you stay successful in your health journey makes a considerable difference in reaching your goals. Your best nutritionist will want to see you succeed and achieve your goals.

A good listener and open to adapting

An image of an arrow icon
A good nutritionist should be a good listener and consider your goals and concerns. If something isn't working, you should feel comfortable sharing that with your nutritionist. They should adjust the plan they created to help you best achieve your goals.

Someone who gives advice that's specific to you

An image of an arrow icon
Working with a nutritionist takes time out of both of your days. Your nutritionist will likely have many clients, but they should never cut corners regarding your health. It would be best if you chose to work with a nutritionist who can help you by providing you with custom plans, tips, and tools to help you reach your wellness goals.

Once you take your health assessment, you'll be able to speak with a matching specialist to determine which nutritionist is the best fit for you.

How to find a nutritionist near me

You can find a nutritionist near you by performing an online search, using a city or community resources book, or widening your search to companies that offer virtual services. If you only look for a nutritionist in your area, you're limiting the pool of nutritionists you can choose from.

You have an improved chance of meeting someone you'll work well with when you use a trustworthy service to connect you to an expert nutritionist. If you opt to use a service like Top Nutrition Coaching, you'll improve your chances of finding a nutritionist to help you reach your goals in a specific and individualized way.

First-gen futures quarterly scholarship

Scholarship award: $1000
The Top Nutrition Coaching First-Gen Futures Scholarship is a quarterly recurring scholarship open to all first-generation students whose parents did not receive a four-year bachelor’s degree. The next deadline to apply is December 1, and winners will be announced on December 31.

About the first-gen futures scholarship

Scholarship award available for both college and high school students
Being the first in your family to attend college is an inspiring feat, often with its own unique challenges. First-generation students may not have the same guidance in navigating parts of the higher education system as other students, such as the application process, obtaining financial aid, and even what to expect in college itself.

Financial constraints can also be a significant roadblock for such students, which may limit their choices, force them to balance jobs, family responsibilities, and school work all at once, and make the college experience much more stressful.

Despite these struggles, first-generation college students have proven time and again to be extremely resilient, determined, and hard-working. They embody a spirit of ambition and perseverance as they work toward creating the future they want for themselves and their families.

The First-Gen Futures Scholarship aims to recognize and support exceptional students who are overcoming the barriers of being the first in their families to attend college. By providing financial assistance to deserving individuals, we seek to alleviate some financial stress so that these students can focus more on their studies.
