Vitality Nutrition Consultations


Vitality Nutrition Consultations

A healthy diet is essential for a healthy lifestyle. Vitality Nutrition Consultations allow you to work with a dietitian to define your nutrition goals and to enjoy better health. You will also earn 1000 vitality points when you go for the consultation.

Vitality Nutrition Consultations can be done at any dietician.

  • The Vitality Nutrition consultations consist of one 30-45 minute consultation with your dietitian
  • 1000 points are awarded for the consultation

Vitality Nutrition consultation costs R400 for each person (2020 rates). You will need to pay this to the dietician on the day of the consultation. If you have a Discovery Health Plan with a Medical Savings Account and available funds, you can claim this amount back from the Scheme (if there is no waiting period). If you are a Discovery Life policyholder, you will need to pay for the Vitality Nutrition consultations yourself.

Please note: If you want a personalised and detailed meal plan, it will be valuable for you have a full initial consultation.  You will still be able to get your 1000 vitality points for this consultation.
