Q. How much will it cost to see a dietitian?
A. Dietitians set their own fees and they range according to experience and the services offered. An initial consultation (commonly 45 minutes to one hour) can range from $45 to $110. A short review consultation (less than 20 minutes) can range from $20 to $40. Concessional rates may be available so check with your practitioner. Most private health insurance funds provide rebates on dietitian's services. For details check with your particular fund. Medicare covers some dietetic services under the extended primary care program, ask your doctor about this.

What it sounds like is that you are having emotional problems due to food, and that is something that dieticians can not really help with. They can help you find out the healthier options with food, and put together a plan for you, but they do not deal with the emotional side.
The best thing to do is go to your GP and they will give you a referral to the person that they think you need to see, whether that be a psychologist, psychiatrist or a dietician.

I dont think I am just a pig anymore i serioulsy think I might have something wrong with me... so i am thinking about going to see a dietition.. I dont know if they will be able to help me or not, but i suppose its worth looking into.
Its quiet embarressing to admit, but lets face it. I am not getting any smaller and i dont meet any goals i meet for myself. It surely cant be hard to go for a walk and eat well... I just cant be bothered going walking and my eating is so bad, I am embarressed to even write what I have eaten today.
Enough is enough I cant keep saying I am going to do it this time, because each time I last 1 day then give up.
I think i have some kind of disorder because if there is food there then I have to eat it, if i want something in particular like pizza and hubby doesnt then I have a tanty and order it for myself. yes I have been known to do that not so long ago. I even said if i lose 10 kilo then i will go to qld and I was so excited about it but nope that didnt even work. I dont leave the house without a jumper even in summer because of my fat roll which i am so embaressed about, it really gets me down, so i dont know what else i can do. I talked about doing tf but i dont want to because i know me, and i know i wont stick to it. if i love food that much then i know it wont work for me.
I am so over it and I cant do it. i dont know what to do anymore. i really dont..
so after my vent lol, does anyone know how much they cost and what to expect from visiting one???

If you have a regular GP who knows how hard you have tried to lose weight, you can ask for a CAREPLAN, I am on a care plan, which means that you get a referral to see the dietitian and medicare covers the whole amount, you don't have to pay a cent!
