Schedule an Appointment

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

Nutrition Workshops are also available throughout fall semester on topics like fad diets, event training, plant-based diets, and quick and easy meals. Check out the Fuel for Life blog too!

1. Online Form

Fill out the Nutrition Questionnaire before you schedule an appointment. This must be completed at least 24 hours in advance to be seen for your appointment. 

2. Handouts

Complete the 2 Day Food Record and Five Food Groups handouts found in the right side bar and bring both documents to your nutrition appointment. These documents will be used to assess your food intake and create meal and snack ideas. If you are not able to print these documents, email them to the Nutrition Coordinator within 1-2 days before your appointment. 

3. Schedule a Session

The first session is 50 minutes and includes a nutrition assessment, education and goal setting. Follow-up appointments are also available in 25-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 1200 calories per day, skip meals, avoid eating when hungry, over-exercise, binge or purge, use laxatives or diet pills to lose weight, etc.

Schedule an appointment

Important Notes:

  • If you have difficulty finding a day and time for your appointment, email the Nutrition Coordinator
  • Full-time faculty/staff, including those who are taking classes, are encouraged to use their OSU health insurance to meet with a dietitian.
