How-to Find The Right San Jose Nutritionist

Pat yourself on the back. 

By finding (and reading) this article, you’ve already taken the first step in making your lifestyle healthier and happier.

Now, let’s find the right nutritionist for you!


We should probably go ahead and get the full disclaimer out of the way. We have really amazing nutritionists right here at Paragon Body. 

So, everything we recommend in this article is likely something we already do. 

However, like everything we do at Paragon Body, we’re always going to shoot you straight. If our nutritionists aren’t a good fit for you, we’ll point you in a better direction! 

Let’s dive in. 

Ask Around - Your Friends, Family

There is nothing better than a strong referral and recommendation from someone you really trust. Ask around at work, and ask your friends and family if they have worked with a San Jose nutritionist that they really rave about. 

It’s a great starting point. 

Check Out The Reviews

Google Reviews are your best friend when searching for a San Jose nutritionist. What are people saying about the nutritionist you’re interested in? We wouldn’t settle for anything less than over-the-top, rave worthy, 5-star reviews. (Like these 😉)

Align on Teaching Styles

When working with a San Jose nutritionist, it’s important to make sure your teaching styles are aligned. Do they explain things in a way that makes sense to you? Are they patient and educational with their teaching? Ensure the way you learn and communicate matches with the nutritionist you choose.

Assess Their Availability

There’s nothing worse than working with a trainer or nutritionist who overbooks themselves and is rarely available. How often will you meet? Are you able to text with a quick question, if needed? These are important things to explore before signing on.

Align on Philosophy

No two nutritionists are the same. The way one nutritionist approaches a relationship with food may vary greatly from the next. Ask preliminary questions to make sure that the nutritionist’s own values align with your lifestyle. For example, if you are someone who is always on the go, make sure you find a nutritionist who prioritizes flexibility. 

Research Their Credentials

Last but not least, it’s important to ensure that the nutritionist you choose is experienced and well-educated. You don’t want to take nutritional advice from someone with little to no experience to show for. Research their credentials and ask for examples of success stories from other clients before you start.
