No more failed diet attempts.

Be your healthiest self without giving up the foods you love.

You CAN have a relationship with food that allows you to be healthier and happier without diets or deprivation of any kind. 


To never count another calorie, measure another macro or follow rules about how

what and when to eat because you've learned exactly what YOUR body needs. 

To feel completely in charge of every bite you take. Food no longer controls you. 

To eat all of your favourite foods, without experiencing a moment of guilt or shame.


Are you ready for that?! -
Be part of The Empowered Eating Programme!


Here are just some of the outcomes
  • Food is just not a big deal anymore. You don't even think about it unless you're hungry or eating it.

  • More energy to do the things you love with the people you love without worrying or even thinking about food.

  • Being 'ok' with sometimes using food as a coping tool because you know you won't lose control.

  • Forgetting about that chocolate bar that's been sitting in the cupboard for a week.

  • Cravings? What cravings? 

  • Googling something other than Keto bread in your spare time.

  • Showing up at a restaurant without scrutinising the menu online first.

  • Being happier, healthier and ultimately...

  • NEVER going on another diet ever again!


Hi, I'm Michelle

I've created this eight-step programme to help you get off the diet rollercoaster once and for all. The Empowered Eating Programme will equip you with the tools to make healthy choices on a daily basis, without having to count, calculate or restrict your favourite foods. We'll take things step-by-step together, change IS possible. 



"After living life for 30 years constantly thinking about food, dieting, feeling guilty about what I ate and letting food dictate my self-worth I can say I am finally FREE.


I wish I could explain to you the lightness I feel now. The heavy weight of shame and guilt have been lifted and I have so many other good things to put my mind to. I am more in tune with my body, its needs and I feel I am in charge of food, not the other way around."

How can Empowered Eating help YOU? 

Untitled design (1).png

The Empowered Eating Programme will help you identify and develop eating habits that fit your own individual profile, so you can nourish your body in a way that truly suits YOU. 

This is NOT 'just another programme'. I will be there, guiding you the whole way as you learn to listen to your body and choose the foods that make you feel your best.

Find out what works for you! 


As a Nutrition Coach, I believe in the concept of bio-individuality, which means that every human being is unique and must nourish their body in a way that works for them, their individual physiology, genetics, and lifestyle.


The truth is, some people thrive on carbs, others not some much; some people handle dairy and others don’t. How your body responds to different foods, how much you need to eat and how often is based on a myriad of different factors, like your ancestry and genetic profile.



Learn to listen to, and trust your body again


I believe that intrinsically we all know what foods serve and don’t serve us. But from years of yo-yo dieting, many of us

have lost the ability to truly listen to what our bodies need.

Getting a bit tired of online courses?


I hear you! That's why I've written the Empowered Eating Workbook as a complement to the course so that you can take things offline whenever you want.  

Sipping coffee at a cafe or spread out at the beach, you can bring this course with you wherever you go!


Not only that but my Empowered Eating team and I are with you every step of the way. 

"Since doing your empowered eating short course, a few weeks ago, I haven't 'denied' myself any foods. It's been enlightening, and my weight hasn't yo-yo'd".

Diets suck and the truth is that most of them don’t work. Our body’s response to caloric restriction is to crave more fatty and sugary foods, so even if you do lose weight after the diet “ends” it is likely that you will end up gaining all the weight back on and then some.


I know what It’s like. 


I’ve been there… By the time I was 14 I had been on

as many diets as I was old. Weight Watchers,

Nutri – System, SlimFast, Richard Simmons –

you name it, I tried it…

Today, my life looks completely different...

I no longer restrict what I eat, I listen to my body’s

hunger cues and enjoy all foods from salad to

pizza with gusto! I have thrown out my scales and

no longer worry about my weight. In fact,

I am the healthiest that I have ever been in my life!


My own personal transformation is down to a

few simple principles that I teach in the 

Empowered Eating Programme. I know these

principles work because they have worked for

hundreds of my clients too! As a Nutrition Coach,

I have helped hundreds of people regain their

health without dieting or restriction.


In the Empowered Eating Programme, I will give you the tools to do the same.

Still not sure if Empowered Eating is for you? 

“Michelle has such a gentle, yet empowering approach to nutrition! I love the way she demystifies all these current fads and focuses on creating a healthy relationship with food while learning to listen to our bodies.

In a world full of "shoulds" where a new approach to nutrition pops up every 5 minutes, she manages to keep it real - and human! I would highly recommend Michelle's services to anyone who is sick of trying out new diets, only to go back to their old habits a couple of months later.

Empowered eating is a great way to connect with your food. Knowing your WHY behind what foods you are putting into your body inspires you to make better choices.  Changing your eating habits can be a hard shift to make, however, Michelle makes it so easy to break things down into bite-sized chunks (no pun intended).
