Aarti Bhanderi-Shah - Aartizen Life - Personalised Nutrition
Do you want to lose weight and have more energy?
- Do you want to embed healthier habits into your daily life?
- Do you want a health plan tailored to your DNA and genetic profile?
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. I create bespoke, personalised Health Plans and meal plans so you can optimise your diet, wellbeing and alleviate problematic health issues. I also use cutting edge Nutrigenetic testing to tailor your diet according to your DNA and genetic profile.
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 Aartizen Life 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 Aartizen Life 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.
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.

Testimonials from happy and satisfied clients:
Alison (37, Asset Manager, Mum of toddler son)
"I can wholeheartedly recommend Aarti’s services, both for her incredible in depth knowledge of nutrition & health and for her supportive and nurturing approach to coaching.
I have a busy life and come from a foodie family, plus I follow an Asian vegetarian diet. As a result many of the off the shelf diets are unsustainable for me as I don’t want a life of tofu and ‘special meals’. Aarti was fantastic at cutting through the complex and conflicting dietary advice that was confusing me and applying simple key principles to my regular diet.
Aarti’s approach is to make simple additions and substitutions which is very helpful if you are cooking for your family. Aarti is also very generous with her time on the regular consultation calls and I feel her realistic, uplifting and encouraging personality will be the key to your success. I had very high expectations and received a throughly professional yet personal service. Thank you Aarti!"
Sara (35, Director, Mum of 2 children)
"As an experienced coach I’ve benefited from working with lots of coaches over the years. Aarti is the only person I would use for my nutrition coaching. Her approach is to celebrate food and nutrition whilst gently nudging you to make tweaks that have big impact.
I started seeing Aarti to help me regain my mojo after the birth of my daughter 4 years ago and more recently my son who is now 2 years old. Health and wellbeing are important to me in my personal and professional life. I was keen to re-gain some much needed energy and instil some positive eating habits. I knew how easy it was to get stuck in a rut after a baby and I didn't want to go down that path. Aarti's knowledge and her ability to educate me on the principles of Nutrition Science were transformative. She made me understand why it was important.
The weekly coaching calls were hugely supportive and very motivational as I was able to discuss my challenges and Aarti could tailor the plan and make adjustments to keep me on track. After 8 weeks I had embedded some positive dietary and lifestyle changes that have made me feel more energised, happier, and a lot of people commented on the benefits!"
