Fees vary widely. Some insurance companies will pay. I just discovered (after over a year of paying on my own) that my insurance covers nutrition. Also, some nutritionists will give you a sliding scale fee. Usually the assessment (first meeting) will cost more than future sessions. It is SOOOOO important that you see a nutritionist who specializes in eating disorders, though--more important than anything else!! I originally started with a nutritionist who specialized in cardiovascular disease (b/c my cholesterol was high as a side-effect of my ED), and it just made everything worse, and she did NOT know what to do with me!! she finally got even more hysterical than i was (if that's possible) and referred me to an ED-specializing nutritionist.

By the way, I am SOOOOOOOO proud of you for taking this step!!!


where do you live? i know a bunch of ppl/resources in ny, and can probably find others in other large cities. otherwise, you can try the something-fishy.org website, or edreferral.com (i think that's the website). my old nutritionist was not jewish, but she worked with many frum ppl, so she understood many of the challenges of shabbos, pesach, etc....

as for how much it costs.....i have a sliding scale fee of $40 per session....i think non-sliding-scale is around 70....but, like i said, insurance might cover it (haha, i have to call and get a years' worth of money back!!)

let me know if you have more questions, and good luck!! keep us posted!

yes
ditto to find a nutritionist specializing in ed's. it will NOT help if u go to someone who doesnt deal with ed's.

I agree with fighter88. I had a nutritionist that had no experience with eds and she really messed me up.
Are you part of an ed program where they can refer you to someone? They would probably know who's best for you.
Good Luck

Maybe you can call nutritionists in New York, ask if they know someone in your area who would be good; and if not. perhaps you can consult with them over the phone.
