When I met Arnold, I was overweight, tired all the time and in a fair amount of pain due to arthritis. I had read lots of articles about the benefits of vegan diets and wanted to try it but had no idea where to begin. It was one of those things on my to-do list that I planned on getting to…someday.

As it turned out, Arnold’s six-month program was exactly what I needed to get my health back on track.

Arnold is empathic, knowledgeable and friendly – and patiently answered all my questions and offered sound advice without any pressure.

With his guidance and support, I was able to set reasonable goals and form new, healthy habits (both nutritional- and fitness-related) that have become part of my everyday routine. He made my transition to a plant-based, whole foods diet a surprisingly simple one. By the end of the program, I met all my health goals and lost a great deal of weight (10 kgs and counting!). Thanks to him, I have more energy, less inflammation and feel much better overall.

In short, working with Arnold has been life-changing experience. He has been a great influence on me and given me all the tools I need to continue my wellness journey in the future. I am a healthier, happier and more hopeful person thanks to his guidance and advice, and would highly recommend his program to anyone looking to dramatically improve their health and well-being.

When I started working with Arnold, my main goal was to get my health status under control and, more concretely, my menstrual cycle.

Although I was already quite aware of the importance of healthy eating, I still needed to improve my diet – mainly to be more consistent with plant-based nutrition, improve my habits, and especially to have regular mealtimes. As I had just made a major change in my career and started working as an independent contractor, I absolutely needed to optimize my schedule and organize myself in a better way.

Arnold gave me deep insights into what it takes to create fully nutritious meals, and how nutrients can affect my health and help me to get back to a balanced menstrual cycle and hormonal health. He helped me to develop better awareness of my stress level, and made me realize that I needed to prioritise my schedule better – both personally and professionally.

My eating habits have now become much more regular. I’m also better organized with shopping and cooking, and my meals are balanced and varied. All of this also causing a decrease in my budget! Plus, after a few months on the program, I noticed more stability and regularity in my menstrual cycle, which helped me, in parallel, to trust my body again, in its natural resources, and its potential to heal.

What I noticed the most in the coaching, though, was actually not just a change in the issues that I had targeted in the very beginning, but was the huge shift in my self-esteem. Thanks to working with Arnold – through many interesting and deep conversations we had over the past months, plus the various literature he recommended to me – I’ve been able to truly become more assertive, and to be more honest towards myself. As a result, I'm much more confident and efficient in decision-making, as well as in my communication with the people I surround myself with. One of the biggest successes I could ever reach!

Arnold is a truly professional coach with incredible knowledge on various topics, may it be on nutrition, yoga, spirituality, personal development, and many others. Thanks to his huge empathy, he had the ability to exactly understand where I came from, where I wanted to go, and how to get me there without doing the work for me, but triggering me in a way that made the journey just obvious and highly motivating for me.

I would recommend Arnold to any person willing to take him/herself to the next level, may it be on a physical or more spiritual basis. I truly appreciated this experience and can’t thank Arnold enough for guiding me towards the next level. Thanks to him I’ve been able to achieve major shifts in health but also in my career strategy and in my attitude and behavior towards myself and others. A truly life-changing experience that I’ll be forever grateful for.

I contacted Arnold at a time in my life when I had lost my bearings. After many upheavals in both my personal and professional life, I wasn’t really feeling comfortable in my own skin anymore. These challenges led to a considerable weight gain that spiralled out of control and that I just couldn’t accept. During our initial consultation, I shared both my fears and my goals with Arnold, who listened carefully to see where I was coming from.

One of my main goals was to lose 10kg (22 lbs) over the next 6 months. Quite an ambitious goal I realize, but I was determined to do whatever it takes. To achieve this, we first focused on optimizing my nutrition to make sure I was getting all the nutrients and nourishment I needed for better mental and physical health. I immediately felt the difference in my body, energy levels went up, and I started to feel stronger! The transition to a healthier plant-rich diet was gentle and smooth, it felt natural. I started adopting new eating habits without depriving myself. I would eat satisfying and colorful meals, experimenting with new ingredients and new ways of cooking. Two weeks after we started I really started noticing my waist sliming down and my weight dropping.

Arnold and I then worked on figuring out a suitable exercise routine for me—keep in mind I’m not a sporty person to begin with, but doing things I actually enjoyed doing made all the difference. Implementing exercise brought me closer to my health goals, and felt great. Arnold guided me throughout this transformation, giving me all the tools and resources I needed to make the best possible progress in the shortest period of time (recipes, books, videos, references), and lots of inspiration.

Also during the program, we covered other areas besides nutrition, we also worked on my personal development. For example, in our sessions there was room for me to speak about my career, and brainstorm ideas and different possibilities. Another area we covered was relationships – especially how to cultivate meaningful and fulfilling relationships. This holistic approach was very rewarding!

6 months later I’m happy to report that the results are there. I lost 10 kg, I feel like a million bucks in my body and even better in my mind. That being said, everything was not always easy or perfect, as change is a messy process. My habits and mindset didn’t change overnight, nor was I able to follow all the recommendations to the T. Therefore, I thank Arnold for his patience, care, and perseverance. He was able to effectively keep me accountable and help me to get back on track in moments of doubt and slacking off.

The 6-month program and follow-up is clear and personalized. Arnold sends out notes after each session, which allowed me to stay on track and the resources helped me to go further on my own. His kindness and tough love combined with his desire to achieve concrete results have allowed me to achieve all my goals!

To be honest, I would say that the biggest benefit of this experience is that even a month after coaching, I feel totally autonomous. My good eating and exercise habits have become almost second nature! Arnold does not just coach, but he empowers with knowledge so that anyone can continue on the health journey alone after the program is over. I highly recommend Arnold’s precious help. I am much more confident moving forward in life and asserting myself which has made all the difference. Arnold’s guidance allowed me to focus on myself, on my needs, and to make self-care a priority.

When I started working with Arnold, my top three goals were to improve my nutrition and that of my family, get fitter / do more exercise, and lose weight after pregnancy. Arnold really helped me to achieve these goals fully, and more.

In addition to helping me reach my goals, he also helped me to organise my kitchen and to put in place a system to facilitate food shopping and prepping. He also gave me advice and confidence on how to put together healthy meals for my family, focusing on the important food groups to include. He encouraged me to track my exercise and to develop a habit of doing exercise every day. Plus, he shared resources to kick-start my exercise and mindfulness practices.

Another important part of our coaching was that he encouraged me to learn more about emotional intelligence and work on my relationships. He also introduced me to tidying-up and minimalism in order to simplify my life. He helped me analyse and rethink my career and life goals and boosted me to start on a new career path. He gave good advice to follow-up more closely our family finances, and much more.

The accountability of working with Arnold was also very useful, knowing that we had a meeting coming up gave me a deadline for doing things that I would otherwise have put off. I have organised and focused my life better, even while taking care of my baby full time, allowing me to reach my short-term goals and work towards my long-term goals.

Arnold is very understanding, motivating and a great listener. He explains things clearly and he bases his advice on scientific studies which is very important to me. He also lives what he preaches which is very inspiring.

Now, I feel very healthy – I have lost 10 kg, I have much more energy and enthusiasm, and I feel confident with my nutrition and feeding my kids optimally. I would recommend Arnold to anyone who wants to get healthier, fitter or even generally improve their wellbeing, or anyone who wants to better organise his or her life and busy agendas.

As my Yoga practice has deepened and created profound changes in my body and mind, I have had the good fortune to cross paths with Arnold and his coaching program. I believe he helped accelerate my growth as a teacher, a yoga practitioner, a musician, and a human being. Through his excellent listening skills, his encouragement, patience, and determination, he inspires me to have the courage to set my goals and to make them happen.

I would highly recommend him as either a vegan nutrition coach, fitness coach, or life coach - but he happens to be all three, so you can really benefit from all of them! I am very happy with the results of my 6-month program, and will be signing up again to try to bring more of his techniques into my daily life, both as a self-employed person looking to grow my business and as a vegan looking to stay healthy and strong. Thank you, Arnold!

When I started coaching with Arnold, I was struggling with identifying what I wanted to do with my career, how to live with integrity, and also how to move forward with a number of things. By holding space for me and my challenges and believing in me from the start, Arnold helped me to search deep inside and clear out my insecurities and societal conditioning, and to find what was holding me back.

Another powerful change I’ve noticed by working with Arnold has been my attitude. I now have a heightened awareness of when I am behaving out of alignment to my hopes and desires. I’ve also noticed that my actions are more sincere and courageous, and that I’m finally going in the direction of my dreams! I now say “yes” rather than rationalizing why “I can’t just yet.”

Arnold has been a real gift to me and my life. He is bold, courageous, and serious about his mission, and I would recommend him to anyone that is longing to break free and express his or herself openly and honestly in this world.

I started my coaching journey with Arnold mainly to help me with my weight loss goals. I’d been trying to lose weight on my own, but I wanted to take things to the next level and work with a professional to achieve my goals. I also wanted to find ways to be more active, implement more exercise, improve my sleep, make self-care a priority, and find ways to spend more quality time with my family.

Arnold was able to help me work toward these goals by suggesting a lot of ways to improve my diet, and lifestyle. Arnold was also able to offer useful recommendations for me to improve my quality of sleep, and how to get the rest I needed. Working with Arnold I also realized how important it is for me to take some time for myself, and practice self-care. As a result, I lost the weight I wanted to lose (over 6kg), and I now sleep way better at night. Plus, I also hardly crave sugar anymore because I’ve learned to swap trigger foods for better healthier options

As a coach Arnold has been there for me when I needed it! He provided me with inspiration throughout the coaching program, and helped to keep me on track. He is compassionate, lovely, understanding, strict but not pushy. :) I recommend working with coach Arnold to anyone who is serious about their health and goals, and truly wants to make a change in his/her life.

When I started my coaching with Arnold, I was ready for a change – a good starting point!

His coaching program is focused on health, nutrition, and exercise, but the great thing is that you get to set your own goals, and explore other related topics. (Plus your goals may even evolve along the way!)

Adopting new, positive habits in terms of nutrition wasn’t too complicated for me, and it proved to be rather rewarding. While coaching with Arnold, I lost the weight I wanted to fairly easily, and most importantly, the weight stayed off. This has also really boosted my energy.

Arnold is a good listener, and he offers readings, videos, and other resources to go further and continue learning on our own. He’s accessible, and knows how to get you re-motivated when you’re down or in a self-sabotage mindset. I appreciated his approach and advice in areas as diverse as decluttering and personal relationships. I had no idea that a coach could help me in these areas, and yet he did thanks to his different tools, readings and different exercises!

I finished coaching with Arnold several months ago and I still see the benefits. If you feel ready for change and need some help, do not hesitate to contact Arnold!

When I started coaching with Arnold, I had several goals. First off, I wanted to learn how to really nourish myself and my children in a balanced way, and to build muscle mass. But I also needed guidance with regard to making important life decisions, like choosing my next place to live, and how to build financial autonomy for my artistic agency.

Over the course of the program, I achieved the 3 major goals that I set for myself at the beginning of coaching. We started off by balancing my meals, focusing on caloric intake, protein, and micronutrients. Then, together we developed an exercise routine that was adapted to my lifestyle, and which encouraged me to work out more regularly.

By applying his recommendations, within a few weeks I quickly found physical strength and improved energy.
I lost 3 kg, that I have since kept off, as I now know the methods to maintain my ideal weight.

Arnold also reminded me of the importance of taking care of myself and recovering my life force and energy so that I could manage my stress. Arnold also gave me many tips to help me move forward in my career plans. Plus, now that I am less tired than I was at the beginning of coaching, I am also better able to make the right decisions in my personal and professional life.

Arnold took a lot of time not only to help me rebalance my nutrition and daily routine, but also to help me find harmony and love in my day-to-day life with my children. (It was like triple coaching!) Having more energy greatly reduced my stress so I am now more patient and attentive to their needs. Arnold allowed me to see what could improve my son's daily life by taking into account the concept of "emotional food." My son, who before was very tired, also regained energy and joie de vivre, and since then, he has been eating much better and much more. Everyday life with my children is much more joyful and serene, and now it is such a joy to spend time with them.

As a coach, Arnold is a true ally. He is very helpful and generous with his time. He listens seriously and attentively and helps me think about solutions that may be best suited to each and every particular situation. I recommend anyone who wants to change their eating habits in a sustainable way, and who seeks to take inventory on their life, to reduce stress, to find themselves and to find balance, to work with Arnold.

I started the coaching program with Arnold mainly because I wanted to stabilize my weight, adopt a stable and solid eating routine, but also to foster the courage to get out of my comfort zone, and achieve some of my personal goals.

Working with Arnold has undoubtedly helped me gain confidence, and become aware of the impact of diet on my health. He would cheer me up and encouraged me when I had moments of weakness. Arnold was like a comforting, compassionate, and benevolent friend, but also strict!

I recommend all people (whether or not you have a serious disease like me) to work with Arnold. Even if you are just soul searching, or having a hard time being focus, you will benefit from this type of coaching. Of course, a coach does not do the work for you! He just helps you to take action with a plan tailored to your needs, then you have to do the work!

I started working with Arnold during a phase of deep introspection, while being in a vulnerable position both personally and in my career. His program was a fantastic catalyst for me. Thanks to working with Arnold, I gained knowledge and clarity about my values, my driving desires, and my capacities. The personalized system Arnold designs is a excellent combination of guided reflections on one hand, and exercises and daily challenges on the other, which makes you feel capable of achieving anything.

Today, I feel more connected to myself, more assertive, filled with enthusiasm, and better prepared to move forward with my personal, professional and life projects. I recommend Arnold to all those who are seeking meaning in their endeavours, and want to discover the strength and courage that lies within them.

Arnold de Souza - Testimonials

Two years ago I felt worse than I had ever felt in my entire life, so much so that I was ready to quit my job. I had pain throughout my entire body. I was several kilos overweight, I had acid reflux, burning eyes, painful joints, and a good night's sleep seemed out of reach. I was really at the end of my rope, and Arnold was a truly a godsend to me.

As we began working together, I started to realize how some of my relationships, and lifestyle and dietary habits were affecting my health, and draining my energy. Little by little, thanks to Arnold’s caring, patient, and holistic approach, we started working on the basics of a plant-based diet, and implementing an exercise routine that included mild interval cardio and yoga. Soon after I started losing weight, I had less pain, and I started to feel better and better.

Today I am happy to say that thanks to working with Arnold, I feel 10 years younger, full of vitality, I have no pain, and I sleep well! Plus, so far I’ve lost over 12kg. Working with Arnold has changed my life and health for the better. To this day, I continue to follow his guidance, and am so grateful for this new lifestyle.
