The first session with your dietitian: Initial Assessement
During this initial consultation, the Registered Dietitian (RD) will do a nutritional assessment. The RD will assess: goals/expectations, food preferences, lifestyle, anthropometric measurements, medical history, medications, food intake, etc. There are two types of initial assessement: with or without a meal/menu plan.
1hr - 125$ CAD
Initial Assessment + meal plan
2hrs - 250$ CAD
During the follow-up consultations, the dietitian will help you overcome obstacles and provide you with the adequate resources. Examples of follow-ups include tweaking your diet or vitamins and minerals, creating a meal plan, or changing your mindset with food. See our service pages for more detailed examples.
Frequently Asked Questions about process & fees
How many total sessions do I need?
On average we see our clients at least 5 times.
This will depend on your goals, your current knowledge, the accountability/support you want and your budget.
After the first initial assessment, the dietitian can specify the number of sessions he or she thinks will be needed.
How often should I see my vegan/vegetarian dietitian?
At the beginning, we usually meet with our clients weekly to transfer knowledge and/or to find a strategy that gives the expected results.
Once we have found a good strategy, we see our clients every two weeks to refine the plan and add new knowledge.
When the client has applied the concepts, is getting the desired results and does not need more support/motivation, we will put the session in 3 weeks to a month or the client will reschedule if needed.
What does the meal plan look like?
Check out the services pages to see examples of meal plans. We use two different systems: Nutrium for macro meal plans or That Clean Life for recipe meal plans.
Do you give insurance receipts?
You will be matched with a registered dietitian in your province who is provincially licensed as a dietitian to practice. This is mandatory for your insurance to approve.
At the end of each meeting, we will give you an insurance receipt for nutritionist and dietitian services with our license to practice.
You are responsible for sending it to your insurer, we do not do direct billing at this time.
Do you do direct billing?
No at the moment we do not do direct billing.
What should I check with my insurance before the meetings?
Check the following 3 things with your insurance company, insurance booklet or human resources department:
1) Are you allowed to choose any dietitian/nutritionist or do you have to choose a specific dietitian from your provider network?
2) What is the total amount you have per year and what is your year-end?
3) Do you have a maximum allowance per day - eg $150. If so, we recommend spreading your nutrition assessment and meal plan over two days to pay less out of pocket.
