"I've struggled with PCOS for a while. Fay made it so affordable and easy to meet with a PCOS dietitian who has availability on nights and weekends. That almost never happens."
Amanda B.
"I meet with my nutritionist every other week and insurance covers all of it! I didn't even know I had this as a benefit. I wish I knew about this sooner."
Aaron E.
"When I became pre-diabetic, I knew I had to make some lifestyle changes. My nutritionist taught me a lot, and I've been managing my blood sugar with what I put on my plate"
Joseph D.
"I lost 15 pounds after 3 sessions with my nutritionist. She helped me build a better relationship with food. I feel more confident in the kitchen and ordering out."
Molly W.
"Fay was recommended to us by our psychiatrist and we were able to connect with an eating disorder specialist, which has been critical for my daughter's recovery."
Zoe T.
"I was able to find the perfect nutritionist to help me manage my diabetes and IBS. I was shocked to learn that it only cost me $5 after insurance!"

How to choose a nutritionist in Chicago

Chicago, IL

What sets Fay’s Chicago dietitians apart

1

Custom meal plans

Trying to lose weight as a vegetarian? Navigating your diet after finding food intolerances? Not sure how to eat right for PCOS? Your Fay dietitian takes into account your health history, preferences, and goals to create a completely personalized plan that fits both your lifestyle and desired outcomes.

2

A non-diet approach

Whether weight loss is part of your goals or not, Fay dietitians craft their plans from an additive perspective instead of a restrictive one. Sustainable change comes from realistic plans that work with your life, not against it. This non-diet approach helps people of all backgrounds cultivate a healthier relationship with food.

3

Covered by insurance

Nutrition services can be expensive. Fay’s mission is to increase access to affordable, inclusive nutrition counseling by using the nutrition benefits that come with most health insurances but few people know about. With Fay, you could pay as little as $0 per session.

4

Clinically proven methods

When you work with a Fay dietitian in Chicago, you’re not getting a generic meal plan and a few recipes. You’re getting a custom diet meal plan based on evidence-backed methods custom to you and you alone. Using well-studied tools like food journaling, mindfulness exercises, and meal planning, you can create lasting change.

Local challenges

Chicago: The Windy City blowing up food trends

The state of health in Chicago

Over 30% of Chicago adults are obese and only 30% report meeting their daily fruit and vegetable servings. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Cook County. While the Chicago population as a whole is relatively healthy, these conditions are easily prevented and treated with dietary changes in conjunction with lifestyle and medical interventions.

Chicago as a culinary center

Chicago is a tastemaker, globally known for dishes like deep dish pizza and Chicago-style hot dogs. However, Illinois is a rich agricultural center, and locally grown organic foods are also readily available. One day you might be chowing down on a hot dog at Wrigley Stadium, the next, a farm-to-table meal.

Fighting the seasonal mentality

Balance can be difficult to come by in the Windy City, with the harsh winters forcing everyone inside and the beautiful summers sending the city down to the lake. Find your own equilibrium in every season for sustainable change with the help of a qualified registered dietitian.
