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

Imagine eating all of your favourite foods, without experiencing a moment of guilt or shame.


Imagine never having to count another calorie, measure another macro or follow rules about how, what and when to eat.


Imagine a relationship with food that allows you to ditch the diets, honour your hunger and love your body exactly as it is.  What if I told you all of this is possible? 


Enter... the Empowered Eating Programme!

This eight-week programme will help you get off the diet rollercoaster for life. It will equip you with the tools to make healthy choices on a daily basis, without having to deprive yourself or give up your favourite foods.


Created by Nutrition Coach, four-time author, Healthy Food Ambassador and International Speaker – Michelle Yandle, the Empowered Eating Programme, is a one-of-a-kind course designed to equip you with the skills to achieve a healthy body (and a healthy mind) for life. 

And with the support of our certified coaches and counsellors, you'll have all the support and guidance you need! 

What's this all about? 


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

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

  • 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.

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

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

  • Being happier, healthier and ultimately...

  • NEVER going on another diet ever again!



Online health and nutrition advisor and entrepreneur Michelle Yandle has written books, inspired audiences around the world, regularly presented on television and radio, worked with household name nutrition brands, and her health advice has been featured in the pages of a number of high profile publications including Nadia and Nourish Magazines. Initially trained as a school teacher, Michelle discovered the benefits of healthy eating based on traditional nutritional principles, and has built a new career through passionately and authentically sharing what she has learnt about ‘empowered eating.’

strict exercise regiments or deprivation of any kind

“If more people embraced the perspectives in this programme, there would be fewer cases of diabetes and heart disease, fewer people getting liposuction or gastric bypass surgery, fewer people suffering from depression, anxiety and unhealthy body image, and fewer people spending innumerable hours agonizing what to eat, how much and when.”

“Michelle provides an inspiring and practical approach to creating a stronger, more powerful, more fulfilling relationship with food, and by extension with yourself. It is time that we all started to embrace the whole human being and in doing so also embrace all the various facets that make up someone’s relationship to themselves and the world around them.”

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.



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. 

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.

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 in moderation. 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.



The Empowered Eating Programme has helped countless women worldwide.
Now is your chance to join the movement!

“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).

"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."
