I'm looking to consult with a nutritionist for individual assistance with healthy eating and losing weight, would have to pay out of pocket, don't have health insurance. (I've already used Weight Watchers and other programs but would like to consider this option.)

Can anyone here recommend a nutritionist service in Charlotte? Or if you've looked into this, how would you advise me about finding a nutritionist/dealing with one?

Need the office or center to be accessible by public transportation and within 5 - 10 miles of my 28210 location near the Southpark Mall. So far, I've considering using Nutrition Specialists, currently located on South Blvd in Dilworth-- anyone else here dealt with them?

Thanks.

I highly recommend Dr. Jessica Stadtmauer. She is not actually an nutritionist, but she is a naturopathic physician, who is brilliant when it comes to nutrition. The only caveat is that she primarily treats women and children, so I am not sure if that would work for you (being that I am not sure if you are male or female ). She works at the Art of Living Center on East Blvd, and the # is (704)332-1201.

I have a wonderful friend who is in nutrition therapy in Denver. She used to live here, and I will ask if she has any recommendations for you!

To Ugaillini, I'm a female. Also I'm over 45, short (5'2"), and lose weight slowly even though I'm very active for my age.

Part of the reason I'm considering seeing a nutritionist is that it took me so long to lose just 16lbs (out of the 38lbs I wanted to lose)-- it took over 4 months, lost less than 4lbs per month! And that was with exercising an average of about 2hrs per day/5 days a week (tennis/walking/biking) while eating 1400 - 1500 calories per day. I still have over 20lbs to lose to get down to 130lbs, which is a very reasonable weight for my height, nothing extreme.

If anyone else here has used a nutritionist to help with losing weight/healthy eating, I'd like to to hear about it. How did it work for you? And what advice would you give me about how to find a good nutritionist in the area, what to expect, questions to ask and what's a reasonable amount to pay for a nutritionist's help. Thanks again.

For those interested in nutrition,

There is a free web site for tracking nutrition.

Nutrition facts, calories in food, labels, nutritional information and analysis – NutritionData.com

Years ago I worked as a special diet chef in a hospital, I really wish this website had been around then.

Based on what you said, then I definitely would recommend Dr. Stadtmauer beacause being that she is a physician, she can order blood tests to determine if there is an underlying hormonal issue, food sensitivity/allergy, or other cause (besides just diet) that could be preventing you from losing weight. Good luck!!!

I went to a nutritionist, but she didn't really help all that much. It was free through the school, but really it was all about portion size and balanced eating..which I did already.

I'm of a similar build, and what helped (and is still helping) me is drinking tons of water/unsweetened green tea, making my exercise mostly cardio, and eating 2 to 3 times as much vegetable by volume as the rest of my food. I've also found that no matter the calorie content, if the food comes from a box/can/freezer...I'll be less satisfied, and gain weight. Lots of fresh crunchy veggies with good low fat/calorie sauces and dips is how I do it.
