About Me

I am Aarti Bhanderi-Shah and I love helping people like you feel happier and more energised through positive diet and lifestyle change. I have helped hundreds of clients to overcome their ongoing health problems and achieve your health goals - for example - weight loss, better blood sugar management (Type 2) and higher energy levels. I have also helped many people to eliminate troublesome gastrointestinal problems such as bloating, GERD/ reflux and irregular bowel movements.

I recognise that every person has their own biochemical blueprint influenced by genes, food and lifestyle - there is no one size fits all when it comes to your health journey. In this busy world of never-ending to-do lists - I take time to listen to your needs and help you to reconnect with yourself by building in self care into your daily routine. Having worked in the stressful corporate environment before changing direction into the world of Nutrition – and now as a mother of two - I understand the health challenges of busy people. I have learned through personal and client experience how small diet tweaks and developing positive lifestyle habits can be truly transformational on a physical and emotional level.

The YourPlate Method

Eating well is not about perfection – it is about understanding the right choices for you and developing healthy habits. I will create a personalised health plan that makes the most of your biochemical blueprint.

My 4 pillar Method is a whole body approach to your health.

1. Eat Well

I will identify the optimum food choices for you and create a delicious meal plan that will nourish you from within. I recommend you undertake a DNA analysis to understand the best foods for your genetic profile.

2. Get Fit

I encourage you to be more active by making one small change each week. This will improve both your physical and emotional wellbeing.

3. Sleep Well

I can help you to develop healthy sleep habits. This will elevate your energy levels and has also been shown to assist with appetite regulation, weight loss and even reduce stress levels.

4. Mindfulness

I will help you to reset your relationship with food. I will empower you with evidence-based nutrition knowledge so you can sort the fact from fiction when it comes to you and food.

If a nutritionist's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the nutritionist to discuss the options available.
