Choosing a nutritionist can be hard.
With all the choices out there, it’s challenging to pick a nutritionist that you feel good about. Because how do you know what to look for if you’re not sure what to look for?
It literally feels like a gamble, like a crapshoot.
What is a nutritionist?
A nutritionist is a person who advises others on matters of food and nutrition and their impacts on health. Some people specialize in particular areas, such as sports nutrition, public health, or animal nutrition, among other disciplines.
So you’re probably wondering:
“How do I choose a good nutritionist?”
I’m gonna make it real easy for you.
Start with Looking at Ratings and Reviews.
Look for social proof! If others have had a great experience, chances are you will too. Look for good ratings (4.0 and higher), and look for detailed reviews that give a glimpse into what it is like to work with this person. Check out my success stories here.
Next, Ask Some Questions.
Does this person look the part?
This is a question you are asking yourself. But it’s extremely important. You want a nutritionist to look healthy, you want a mechanic to look dirty with big hands, and you want your trainer to look healthy and fit.
Is this your only job?
You want a nutritionist and health coach that is committed to the lifestyle – it’s all they freakin’ do. That means they are passionate about it. That also means they are probably focused on health all the time – working with themselves and working with clients. If they are part-time, they may be part-time with you!

How are you going to work with me? What are you going to do to me and for me?
If a nutritionist goes right into everything he or she is going to do to you, like a sales pitch, move on. The FIRST response from a good nutritionist and health coach is a question right back at you, getting to know you better. A question such as “What are your goals? What do you want to see change? How do you think a nutritionist or health coach can help?”
Is this way of eating something you actually do? Do you take your own advice?
If your nutritionist or potential nutritionist comes back with anything but yes, you may want to dig a little deeper.
A good nutritionist puts you first.
When you visit with a nutritionist, it should feel comfortable. You should feel heard. And you should feel in control.
