In 2017, she also completed a Postgraduate Diploma in Dietetics and obtained her registration as a Dietitian. She is currently reading for a Master of Science in the Applied Professional Practice of Dietetics with the University of Plymouth in the UK.
Ariana started working as a Registered Dietitian at Mater Dei hospital in 2017. She provides advice to people suffering from various issues such as difficulty losing or gaining weight, diabetes, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, food intolerances and allergies, renal and liver problems and eating disorders. She has received training from the UK for specialization in bariatric (weight loss surgery) dietetics and thus is working towards making bariatric dietetics her area of special interest. She focuses on helping clients achieve a healthy lifestyle for the long-term rather than following short-term diets with temporary results. Each consultation is individualized according to the needs of the client and takes into account various factors such as budget, preparation time, job, lifestyle and free time.
She encourages her clients to maintain a healthy lifestyle by incorporating other areas of health such as mindfulness, physical activity and motivational techniques, thus providing a complete package towards long-term weight loss and maintenance.
