I am nothing without the women who allow me to walk alongside them as they journey towards achieving their goals, living with clarity and thriving on the daily!
“My top three goals upon starting the three month program were to be able to fit into my jeans again, to quit night eating, and to get my compulsive eating under control overall.
Isaly was able to help me work toward these goals by allowing me the space to figure out what was stopping me from achieving these goals in the first place. Isaly did not tell me what to do, she helped me figure out a plan that worked with my lifestyle and my needs/goals. She never told me what I was doing wrong either, she helped me come to a place where I could see what I was doing wrong on my own. I felt like that was really amazing, because people are always going to tell us what we are doing wrong. It isn’t until we realize it on our own, that we can really do anything about it.
The biggest tangible change for me was weight-loss. I achieved one of my goals which was to fit in all of my skinny jeans again. This wasn’t even my favorite change though.
The most significant overall change I have noticed, and this is my favorite one, has been that I put myself first. I no longer put myself on the back burner while I tend to my family. I no longer overextend myself or put myself in a position that is unhealthy for me when dealing with others. I no longer laugh at the suggestion to put my oxygen mask on before assisting others when flying (laughing-but very serious). The self love is real. I can say “my clothes fit”, or “I can control my eating now”, but really, the ability to still smile at myself in the mirror and say “it’s OK, we will pick right back up from where we fell” after a slip or cheat is worth so much more.
I would describe Isaly as a light. She’s that warm friend that you want to bump into on a dark path. She is an incredibly intelligent lady who thinks introspectively and helps others to do the same. She is a goddess, and she helps others tap into their inner divine goddess, rather than try to block that like many women do without even realizing these days. She is a woman of integrity. I’m so grateful to have worked with her for 3 months.
I would recommend Isaly to anyone who is truly ready to change their life. Whether it be someone who knows the way, yet still found themselves off path (like me), or someone who is completely lost and doesn’t know where to begin. As long as it’s somebody that is truly willing to put in the hard work it takes, physically and mentally.
Isaly speaks a lot of truth, and has wisdom beyond her years. Expect your conversations to be deep. She will get you to think about things you never thought to even consider before.
“My top three goals upon starting the 3-month program were to lose 10-12 lbs, get off my medication (doxycycline hyclate) for rosacea, and get off Adderall and think clearer.
Isaly helped me work toward these goals by helping me look at what I was doing and eating that affected my skin, my thinking, my weight issues and my overall health.
The biggest tangible change I have noticed since beginning the program has been losing nearly 10 lbs and I know I will keep going [Jessie ultimately lost over 15 lbs!].
This program is different in that it’s not really a program, it’s a life long journey! Programs end, and then you go back to eating what you ate before. Isaly is support at the start of your new journey and you carry it on for the rest of your life and want to maintain your amazing results! I’ve done fad diets before, and I’ve gained the weight back. Now I’m eating real food, I’m thinking about what I’m putting in my body and am choosing foods that make me feel at my best. As a result I’ve lost weight, and my skin and thinking have been clearer. I never feel like I’m depriving myself of anything, I feel strong and healthy!
The most significant overall change I have noticed has been my thinking is so much clearer! And this is what I was most skeptical about! I did not think my eating habits were connected to neurological issues! I thought, “This is how my life is going to be. I’ve always been a scatter brain, never meeting deadlines, room was always disorganized, always losing things, my mind racing ALL the time, this was life for a very long time.” I’m a quiet and calm person in general, but mentally, I was always all over the place. I can actually focus now! I feel like I can listen more thoroughly to people. I’m more present. I’m honestly blown away by the results of the past 3 months. I still take breaks during my work and study time, but I feel like I’m taking more appropriate breaks as opposed to every 10 minutes, for 10 ten minutes!
I would describe Isaly as “The bomb”! Isaly knows her stuff. She’s dealt with many similar health issues and she’s a walking testimony of what honoring your body brings. She’s a patient listener, and really creates a space during meetings for you to lay out your thoughts and organize them appropriately. This has helped me to see the areas where I need improvement. She’s motivating and encouraging and also really knows how to make people feel comfortable to share and be honest with her! She also doesn’t give you a cookie-cutter plan to follow. She listens and learns what your needs are, and helps you determine what is good for you.
I would recommend my coach to girlfriends and family who are taking medications that they could be off of if they ate better! And anyone who is interested in losing weight and are sick of fad diets!
Seriously, Isaly is the best! Very professional and personable at the same time!”

“My top three goals upon starting my health coaching program were weight-loss, healthier eating, and starting a workout plan.
My coach was able to help me work towards these goals by holding me accountable, setting realistic goals, and guiding me to healthy food choices.
The biggest tangible change that I noticed since beginning the program has been accountability! It has allowed me to keep setting goals and accomplishing them. Lifelong success is my number one goal today. The most significant overall change I have noticed has been falling in love with me and my body all over again. Isaly takes her time to understand her clients and their needs. She is devoted, empathetic, hard-working, knowledgeable and tough to say the least. I knew instantly that she would be my person. I have tried it all in the “diet world” and although some things did work, I would always fall back.
What was different about Isaly’s approach, you may ask? It was the one-on-one. I met a person who cared about my health, who motivated me to keep pushing through. She believed in me. It is hard to adjust from unhealthy habits to a healthy lifestyle. Especially for someone like me who has been unhealthy for 15 years.
I just turned 40 and truly believe that I will be living my best years moving forward, thanks to her! ”

“While working with Isaly as an avid runner I was excited to see improvement in my endurance as I started to run longer and increased in my speed as I ran faster. I started to reconnect with the foods I enjoyed and I got better at tracking what and how I ate. The scale kept going down as a result. My mood was happy and I felt good. After experimenting with TheWhole30, I found herself cooking more and incorporating foods in my diet like quinoa and black beans. Isaly even gave me a personal cooking demonstration as inspiration! I came into my own and owned my progress. My goal was to lose between 4.2 and 9.2 lbs while working together and by “getting in my head” I was able to change my mindset and achieved my weight loss goal of 8.2 lbs!
