There’s no need to worry about parking, bus times, or New York City subway maps – your nutritionist is just a click away. And even if you’re on the go, you can connect with your expert using your laptop or mobile device. During your initial nutrition consultation, we’ll walk you through the process and take the time to get to know you and what you want to achieve. This will help us select the perfect nutritionist to help you lose weight and improve your health.

Reputation

An image of an arrow icon
Because our nutritionists work remotely and conduct all of their sessions online, we’ve been able to hire some of the top nutritionists in the country. We’re incredibly proud of our reputation as a leading online nutritionist network. To ensure the excellence of our staff, our recruiting process is extremely thorough, and less than 3% of applicants are invited to join our elite team. In addition to their qualifications, clinical knowledge, and experience, we insist that all of our nutritionists demonstrate professionalism and empathy at all times and have the ability to inspire and motivate their clients. One of the most important attributes that our nutritionists share is being able to think quickly and creatively in response to the changing needs and circumstances of their clients. That’s why an important part of our hiring process requires prospective nutritionists to work through detailed case studies that mirror the challenges they’ll face on the job. This ensures that the nutritionists we hire can create achievable, long-term solutions, even in the most complex and dynamic scenarios.

About New York City Specific Registered Dietitians

To become licensed and certified as a registered dietitian in the state of New York, candidates must complete a rigorous academic and practical program to gain expertise in their field. The registered dietitians at Top Nutrition Coaching have all attained this qualification, and many have also completed master’s degree programs and additional certifications. 

Registered Dietitian Certification Process in New York 

In New York, the process of becoming a registered dietitian ensures that only individuals who have completed sufficient nutrition sciences coursework and supervised practice can call themselves registered dietitians. A registered dietitian must earn a bachelor’s degree or higher from an Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics-accredited program. This involves 45 semester hours across a variety of content areas, as well as a minimum of 800 hours of supervised practice. 

Continuing Education and Professional Expertise

After this process, applicants must sit the Commission on Dietetic Registration exam and apply for certification and licensure in the state of New York. To maintain their licensure, they must complete 75 hours of continuing education units every five years.

At Top Nutrition Coaching, we expect even more from our team. All of our nutritionists are fully credentialed registered dietitians with years of experience under their belts. Many hold additional qualifications in sports nutrition and personal training. You’ll be working with an expert who specializes in weight loss nutrition and has helped countless clients avoid the complications of excess weight gain, such as high cholesterol and high blood pressure. 

Get Over the New York City Hurdles and Get Back to Health

For many New Yorkers, adhering to a healthy diet and weight management plan can seem like an unattainable goal. More than half of New York City residents struggle with their weight, which can lead to complications such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, heart disease, and pre-diabetes. For some, the demands of a hectic job, a long commute, and numerous family commitments can make finding time to cook healthy meals and get enough exercise almost impossible. 

Too much fast food, not enough fresh food

Many New Yorkers find themselves living and working in neighborhoods with few supermarkets, where fresh fruit and vegetables are hard to find. The available options are often limited to fast food outlets and convenience stores. It’s no wonder that so many busy NYC professionals rely on takeout and food delivery apps for multiple meals every week, even though these aren’t the healthiest options.

Transportation and logistical challenges

In a vast city like New York, most people rely entirely on public transportation, which can make grocery shopping time-consuming and impractical. Without easy access to grocery stores full of fresh, healthy food, it’s understandable why so many people end up eating processed, pre-made meals on a daily basis. Most New Yorkers want to follow a healthy lifestyle, but the realities of work and family pressures, transportation issues, and limited grocery shopping options have left many people in the city struggling to manage their diet and their weight.

Frequently Asked Questions

All of our nutritionists are registered dietitians with years of clinical nutrition expertise who have successfully guided clients in the New York City area to success in their health goals.

How much does a weight loss nutritionist cost in New York City?

An image of an arrow icon

Our nutritionists’ rates are very competitive with other top New York City nutrition professionals with similar expertise in weight management.

Full Transparency Pros and Cons

We know that you have options when it comes to losing weight. We’re confident that our network of leading New York City nutritionists offers the convenience, expertise, and personalized attention to help you achieve your goals.

Online Meal Plans

Pros

  • Signing up for an online meal plan offers simplicity and convenience by saving you time with meal preparation and grocery shopping.
  • For people who already have a clear understanding of their body’s nutritional needs, certain meal plans may fulfill their dietary requirements. Just make sure to avoid plans that offer processed foods with limited nutrient content.

Cons

  • Online meal plans don’t have the flexibility to take factors such as your lifestyle, medical conditions, and daily routine into consideration, whereas a nutritionist will get to know your unique circumstances and preferences when making recommendations for healthy living.
  • Online meal plans aren’t necessarily backed by credible nutrition science, whereas nutritionists have completed extensive academic and practical work to gain an in-depth knowledge of their field.
  • Online meal plans can’t offer specific guidance about topics such as disease prevention and unhealthy foods – you would need to consult an expert for this kind of advice.  

Diet Companies

Pros

  • Some well-established diet companies have clear guidelines that are easy to follow, as long as the client understands the nutrition science behind the program and is prepared to fully commit without adjustments or alterations.
  • Diet companies are becoming increasingly tech-savvy and some offer useful apps that allow clients to connect with other users and access health information. 

Cons

  • Diet companies don’t offer the flexibility of personalized nutrition. Instead, they have a set plan that they expect their clients to follow. This doesn’t take into account the unique and changing circumstances of individual clients, including clients who have health conditions that require a more nuanced approach.
  • The weight loss strategies promoted by diet companies often involve counting calories or rejecting certain foods altogether. Ultimately, these strict rules can be detrimental to your physical and mental health, as they may result in a cycle of weight loss followed by weight gain and an unhealthy relationship with food. 
  • Diet companies typically communicate with their clients by relaying information through websites and apps, so clients don't have the opportunity to ask questions or express concerns as they would with a nutritionist.

In-Person Weight Loss Nutritionists

Pros

  • Some people, especially those who aren’t accustomed to virtual meetings and appointments, may find it easier to build rapport with their nutritionist in a face-to-face setting.
  • Certain insurance companies may pay for people with complex health issues to meet with an in-person nutritionist, as long as the nutritionist is in their network.
  • Some in-person nutritionists work out of hospitals, medical centers, and sports clubs, so clients may be able to attend appointments with several specialists in the same location. 

Cons

  • You are limited by your physical location to nutritionists who live and work in the New York metropolitan area, as opposed to an online platform that connects you with leading experts, regardless of where they practice.
  • You probably won’t be able to contact an in-person nutritionist outside of their office hours, but you can message an online nutritionist with questions or concerns at any time, without having to schedule an appointment.
  • You’ll have to travel to attend appointments with an in-person nutritionist, which can be logistically complex if they work in another borough or aren’t easily reached via bus or subway routes. With an online nutritionist, you’ll have access to regular nutrition counseling via virtual appointments with a clinical nutrition expert, without having to leave home.
