Too often, health is thought to be inversely correlated to weight: if our clients would just follow the meal plans and the required exercise, their excess weight will magically disappear and they will finally be slim and healthy… In her course ‘Empowered Eating for Health Coaches’, Michelle Yandle shines the spotlight on a different approach to health, weight-independent. An approach that lets go of the self-fulfilling cycle of nutrition restrictions, failure, followed by shame, guilt, and binging, followed by more restrictions. An approach to move away from yoyo dieting and instead offering a normalization of an individual’s relationship with food. As a clinical nutritionist, if there is anything I learned from working with clients over the past years is that although most clients come to lose weight, the so called ‘non-scale-victories’ are what keeps them motivated. Those NSV are very diverse: having more energy to play with the grandchildren after a day at work, sleeping better and waking refreshed, enjoying food again, fitting a favourite dress again although their weight has not changed, looking forward to a picnic instead of dreading going. For me, this course filled in many of the remaining puzzle pieces in my quest to help clients feel better about themselves.

This course really should be compulsory for all health professionals! I was somewhat hesitant about HAES & non-diet approaches to health due to the many misconceptions that surround these concepts, and also some fear due to my own fears around ditching diets! Michelle really dismantles the misconceptions and allows you to see a new and improved approach that actually makes sense to help not only ourselves but also our clients and family in a sustainable & compassionate way. This has been truly eye opening for me, on a personal level, but also in the way I approach my clients. Thank you team for this thoughtful, truly holistic & evidence based approach to health.

What is Empowered Eating?

Empowered Eating Coaching™ is based on the understanding that health is more than just the body, it encompasses physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual wellbeing as well.
This broad definition is central to all the work I do to help people heal their relationship with food.

Individuality is at the heart of Empowered Eating and long-term health and wellness is centred around an evidence-based approach to health, without rules and restrictions. In fact, letting go of food rules is the missing link to a healthier and happier life.

Together we will work through the Empowered Eating Coaching steps so that you and your clients can feel great - and eat cake (or whatever else you love!)
