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.
