Schedule an Appointment

Nutrition coaching is free to all currently enrolled Ohio State students and is intended to help students explore ways to optimize their nutrition needs through a nutrition assessment, education and goal setting.

Nutrition appointments have been added for fall semester and will occur virtually through Carmen Zoom. 

1. Online Form

Fill out the Nutrition Questionnaire before you schedule an appointment. This must be completed in order to attend your appointment.

2. Handouts

Complete the Two Day Food Record and Five Food Groups handouts found in the right side bar. These will be used to assess your food intake and create meal and snack ideas. Email your completed documents to within 1-2 days before your appointment. 

3. Schedule a Session

The first session is 45 minutes and includes a nutrition assessment, education and goal setting. Follow-up appointments are also available in 45-minute sessions for those who have completed a first session. When you schedule an appointment, select from the following two options:

  • General Health if you want help with topics like establishing a healthy diet, weight management, food allergies or intolerances, event training, health conditions (i.e. Hypothyroidism, acid reflux), etc.
  • Disordered Eating if you eat less than 1,200 calories per day, skip meals, avoid eating when hungry, over-exercise, binge or purge, use laxatives or diet pills to lose weight, etc.
