When a registered dietician provides the consultation, you have 97802-97803, G0270 or S9470. For a regular physician, you can use the preventive medicine series 99401-99404. These codes are appropriate when the patient does not have a current condition and the counseling is provided as a preventive measure. But when the patient comes with a problem, e.g. obessity or overweight, then you should go for a regular E/M code (99201-99215).
