“I have witnessed the impact that been overweight and obese has on close family members and friends who have tried everything to release weight, the stereotyping they endure and the lack of understanding about the complexity of obesity. Being a mother of two and a businesswoman, I know how hard it is to maintain a healthy lifestyle while juggling the responsibilities of motherhood and a demanding career. I love helping and seeing the transformation in my clients and how it impacts their mental and emotional needs. To help with this I simplify complex scientific concepts and nutritional advice and empower clients with simple and practical tools.” – Dr Isabel Arnaiz
Isabel’s aim is to build a collaborative partnership with her clients, teaching them to create sustainable and enjoyable meal plans, address specific dietary concerns, and cultivate a positive relationship with food. She understands that nutrition is not solely about physical health but how it impacts peoples mental and emotional needs.
Her compassionate nature and desire to make a positive difference in the lives of others has earned her respect and admiration. Isabel is dedicated to giving back to her community and volunteers as a women’s soccer coach and committee member, and co-leads businesswomen’s networking groups across The Blue Mountains and Western Sydney.
