The 4 Month Group Coaching Program to:

Escape the All or Nothing Mentality with Food, Eliminate Binge Eating, Conquer the Diet Cycles, and Free Your Mind From Obsessive Thoughts of Food For Good.

It’s time to break free from the toxic cycles of:

  •  Feeling so bad about yourself that it drives you into even more poor choices with food and a mountain of guilt, shame, and embarrassment about how much you’ve eaten.
  • Hating how you feel about yourself and letting the mirror 🪞, scale, or photos dictate your mood
  • Trying EVERYTHING!!! Calorie counting, meal replacement shakes, macro tracking, every diet in the book, daily affirmations, maybe even surgery

  • Constantly thinking 🧠 about food and how you look 

That’s what
Nourished & Free is for

Especially if you’ve wondered…

  • Am I a binge eater?
  • Do I have an eating disorder? 
  • Am I addicted to food?

I get it. Because I’ve been there.

But not anymore.

And you don’t have to be either! I’m ready to show you how to do the same.

I’m Michelle Yates

I was in the same place you’re probably in now.

I remember going into the kitchen every 5 minutes taking just 1 more slice off of the cake, only to realize I’d eaten 1/2 of it. I felt so much guilt for my lack of self-control.

My weekdays would be marked with perfect restriction, only for the weekends to be a free-for-all… complete chaos, with an extra dose of shame on Sunday nights.

Every Monday, I’d ‘start over’, only to fall off the wagon before the week was over.

I kept saying the same things to myself that were making me miserable…

“Why can’t I just eat like a normal person?”

“I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.”

“I don’t want my relationship with food to rub off on my kids.”

“I hate looking at myself.”

​”Why can’t I just eat like a normal person?”

“I don’t know what I’m doing wrong.”

“I don’t want my relationship with food to rub off on my kids.”

“I hate looking at myself.”

I quickly realized that my lifestyle was lacking one of the most crucial elements in order to be truly healthy and flourishing:

A simple, adaptable style of eating that I could rely on for the rest of my life.

Many people looking for binge eater help are struggling with binge eating disorder, which was formally added to the DSM-5 in 2013 as a type of eating disorder. Binge eating disorder is characterized by not just overeating, but by feeling out of control when eating and experiencing shame or guilt because of the behavior. It must be diagnosed properly by a professional.

However, not all binge eaters fit the diagnostic criteria for binge eating disorder. Binge eating can be a disordered behavior with food that an individual struggles with but does not necessarily have an eating disorder.

IT TURNS OUT THAT LEARNING HOW TO STOP LOSING CONTROL WITH FOOD WASN’T ABOUT WHITE-KNUCKLING OR WILL POWER…

IT WAS ABOUT GETTING TO THE ROOT ISSUES BEHIND MY RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD 🤯

So I made a change! 🧁

Now I can:

🍩 Have spontaneous fast-food stops guilt free

👩‍⚕️ Get good reports from the doctor on my blood sugar, cholesterol, and overall health status.

🍷 Enjoy wine and donuts without thinking about the carbs

📈 Grow my business without my lack of energy / focus slowing me down

🔥 Be completely unphased by what others think about my body

Your Core Curriculum Includes… 📖 

PILLAR ONE

MINDSET

Most things don’t take the time to dig into your thought processes and make sure you’re actually setting yourself up for success. In Nourished & Free, we’re digging deep into your patterns and rewiring your brain so that it doesn’t set you up for failure anymore.

PILLAR TWO

INTUITIVE EATING

Learn intuitive eating like you never have before. I take a grounded, logical approach so it makes sense to you, and is actually easy to implement. After working together, you’ll know how to tell if you’ve had enough to eat, and walk away with no hesitation.

Not only that, you’ll be able to follow a stress-free lifestyle that reverses insulin resistance, PCOS symptoms, weight cycling, blood sugar imbalances, and cholesterol imbalances (while still eating the foods you LOVE).

PILLAR THREE

BODY IMAGE

If you’re desperate to lose weight, control your weight, or change your body- then there is a high likelihood that your body image is having a direct impact on your relationship with food. Because of that, we incorporate body image coaching so that you can feel confident today instead of perpetually living in a world of “what ifs” and “if onlys“.

Plus you get…

Daily support and accountability for 4-months

  • Have a community of women that are there for you

  • Get expert-advice on anything and everything you want!

  • Be held accountable to the commitment you made to yourself with check ins and group calls.​

  • Grab your phone out of your back pocket and get instant access to your coaches! 📱 

  • Celebrate leaving behind feelings of being lost, defeated, and hopeless 🎉 

I care about the little things

You should be able to enjoy moments with your family without stressing about the food or how you look.

You should be able to raise your daughters knowing that they won’t inherit poor a body image or disordered eating habits from you.

You shouldn’t have to sacrifice your job performance because you’re too tired from eating so little, or too preoccupied with thoughts of food to focus.

Your body was incredibly designed by a Creator that knew exactly what He was doing, and He gave you the tools to know how to care for your health without a single nutrition label. You should be able to access those tools no problem.

Your body was made uniquely to look like YOU – not like the influencers on Instagram. That’s worth celebrating, and we can be content in that reality.

All of this is SO possible for you, and I want to help you get there.

NOW IS YOUR MOMENT TO FINALLY
BE PROUD OF WHO YOU ARE AND THE EXAMPLE YOU SET

How it works…

Each week a new module will be available to you.

You will work through the modules 1 at a time. All the tasks, recommendations, trainings, etc for the week will be housed in that module.

Every other week, you will have live coaching calls with Michelle and her team.

If you cannot attend a call live, the replay will be provided to you (and you can still ask questions in the group chat M-F!)

You will have daily access to Michelle and her team.

Ask questions on the spot using text or voice notes M-F in the exclusive group chat provided to you. Enjoy having a dietitian, therapist, and more in your back pocket!

Ready to Never BINGE or DIET Again?

Get time back with family

No more wishing you had been more present with your loved ones, or was focused on your kids rather than how you looked or what was on your plate.

Eat stress-free

No questions about what to eat, when, or how much. It will come easily, and so will moderation between nourishing foods vs fun foods.

Have lasting confidence

No more looking in the mirror and feeling defeated. Say goodbye to dreading taking your clothes off.

Make memories

Never send the text “Sorry, not tonight.” ever again. Instead, live your life free from worries of what food will be there, how you look in your clothes, and what others will think of you.

“I hated myself. I kept bingeing, 3… 4… 5 times a week – crazy binges that left me feeling sick and pathetic. At one point I even started researching weight loss surgeries. I was desperate.I knew I needed help, but I didn’t know where to get it.On one of my deep dives on Google, I found Michelle. I was beyond nervous to speak with her, but after a really bad binge and purge session, I knew I had to reach out……This  program  has been literally life-changing to me. To some, it may sound so simple, and some of it may seem obvious to you, but food dictated my life for way too long.”  – Shelby

🎉 I’m ready to celebrate you not obsessing over food anymore 🎉 

Together we will…

 

Banish the thoughts of food from your mind for good. 🧠 

Stop binge, emotional, and/or overeating​ once and for all. 🍔 

Step up instead of shrinking back in fear. 💃🏻 

Heal the scars that dieting has left on you. ❤️‍🩹 

Surround you with a powerful support group, allowing you to step into who you are truly meant to be. 🫂  

ARE YOU READY?

Before I learned the ins and outs of rewiring my thoughts and healing my relationship with food, I was scared.​

I thought that every new diet thing I tried was “it”. But it wasn’t. I felt silly for wanting to continue to spending money on trying new things.​

While every program, plan, and philosophy about how to eat seemed logical, I knew I needed something else…

The other things weren’t addressing the root issues like I needed. They weren’t protecting my disordered eating tendencies.​

I felt massive shame about how broken my eating patterns were. I wanted to set a good example for my future kids, and my future clients.​

Once I healed my relationship with food and my body, I knew it was totally worth every last penny.​

I was investing in my health. I got my LIFE back. That was priceless.​

I love this quote:​

“If you want something you’ve never had, you need to do something you’ve never done.”​

If you feel called to this program, yet still scared, I would challenge you to do one thing:​

Breathe. Close your eyes. Envision the version of you who’s eating the foods you love without bingeing on them. Who’s no longer hiding food in the trash, or on a credit card. Who’s no longer constantly thinking about how disgusting you are.

The you that says ‘yes’ to spontaneous ice cream with your loved one.

The you that has more mental space to put towards your family.

The you that feels confident and empowered.

The you who doesn’t give a d*mn what the scale says.

The you who says, “I’m ready to feel confident for the rest of my life.”

WHAT DOES SHE HAVE TO SAY?

THERE’S YOUR ANSWER.

FAQ’s

CLOSED TOGGLE
How do I know this will work for me?

Let me guess: You’ve tried everything. It makes you sick how many things you’ve tried, and you don’t want this to be just. another. thing.

I get it. I don’t want it to be just another thing for you either.

Honestly, that’s what makes you the perfect fit for this process. This is designed for you because you’ve tried it all, and you really want this to be the thing that ✨ works ✨.

But here’s where I have to be brutally honest with you:

The process is tried and true. I have testimonials for days from women just like you. (Example 👇 )

 

But, it WILL NOT WORK if you are not ready to be all-in and leave your excuses at the door. 🚪

Will you show up and do the work? Will you fight for this? Will you ask questions and seek support when things get hard?

That’s the difference between women who walk away finally free from decades of food/body image baggage vs. those who don’t. It’s not that they didn’t have fear about this not working for them – it’s that they didn’t let the fear stop them.

Are you going to let fear stop you from finally conquering your battle with food?

Can I see some reviews from past clients?

Of course! Here’s a link to my Google reviews. I’ve also put together a page of video, podcast, and written testimonials here. Please, help yourself to looking through those! 😊

Here’s one of my favorite photos from a client:

Is there any 1:1 coaching in this program

After running this program as a 1:1 experience, a group experience, and a hybrid of the two, what I have found that women need the most when it comes to their relationship with food is community. No longer feeling alone, stuck, or like they’re the only one who struggles.

Additionally, the growth is accelerated when you’re in a group of others who are on the same journey as you.

To see what I mean, check out these posts from N&F members:

 

I do believe our clients get the best results when they learn in groups alongside women doing it with them. In this model, you will get:

  • Personalized answers to your questions from the team in the group chat.

  • Our undivided attention if you have a question on our group calls.

  • Option to add on 1:1 time with Michelle at any time (extra charges apply).

Why not just go see a therapist?
Let me be clear: I am in FULL SUPPORT of anyone going to therapy. However, it is not a substitute for what we do inside of Nourished & Free. My clients often say they are able to heal in ways they never could from traditional therapy. This is because of my unique, food-psychology approach. Read what one of our members has said below:
How involved are you in the program?
Extremely. I check for questions/respond to clients 1x/day. I hate the bait-and-switch programs where you don’t actually get to work with the person who you were excited to learn from.
 
As of 2023, I also have a therapist on the team available to you! She is a body image, disordered eating, and trauma guru. She’s AMAZING and I’m so glad she can support you in addition to me!
Couldn't I figure this out on my own?
You could continue to spend HOURS researching, watching videos + reading books/articles, and maybe it’ll work out for you.
 
But, let’s be honest. You’re running out of time. You’ve waited long enough to feel better, so let’s feel better ASAP rather than wasting a bunch of time trying to do this on your own with no guarantee that you’ll even be able to learn and implement everything properly on your own.
If you invest in this, you get quick and lasting results. Inside, you will get access to the strategies and support that have allowed me + so many others put an end to binge eating, emotional eating, yo-yo dieting, poor body image, and/or food guilt for good!
By joining this program, you will save time, money, avoid making any more mistakes, get access to resources, trainings, and tools that will accelerate your growth x10 faster than if you tried to figure things out on your own. Plus you’ll get to have your very own dietitian in your back pocket, ready to coach you through any situation!
 
My guess is that you feel like you’ve tried EVERYTHING, and nothing worked. So why keep trying on your own?
If you’re ready to eliminate the guesswork, then let’s do this!
When does it start?
Right away! As soon as you get signed up, your journey to food freedom begins. :heart_eyes:
I'm not big on group settings, especially since we are all starting at different times... how could this possibly be helpful?
I totally hear you. I wouldn’t run it this way if I didn’t feel like it was serving my clients. However, I find it is the MOST fruitful way to set things up! Listen to a previous N&F member who had these very same concerns, and how she ended up feeling after only 1 month in. 👇
 
How is this different from other courses and programs?
My process is literally one of a kind (I’m not saying that to be cheesy. I’m dead serious).
 
Not only is the content itself highly specialized and put together, but you will never see a healthcare professional making themselves available to you M-F ever again. You want a dietitian in your back pocket? You’ve got it. PLUS a team to support you. PLUS lifetime access to your program materials. PLUS a group of amazing women.
 
Here’s what a member said in less than 1 week of joining:
Here’s what another member who was close to her finish date said:
Lastly, this process isn’t an “eat this not that, no matter how much it sucks”
program. Read what one member had to say about how N&F’s focus is much different than other programs:
Do I need to be a certain age to join?
You’re welcome to join us as long as you’re 18 years or older! We have had members ranging from 20-64 years old :)
I am really busy! How much time will this require?
Most of my clients are busy moms, working full time or even overtime, or something else is keeping them extremely busy.
 
They make it work by spending 20 mins popping a training into their bluetooth on their car ride, or sending me a voice note while they make dinner, etc.
 
If you can give me 15-30 mins/day, you will be my next success story!
Why hire a Registered Dietitian and not a 'nutritionist' or 'coach'?
There is a MASSIVE difference between hiring a Registered Dietitian (RD) and a self-proclaimed ‘coach’* or ‘nutritionist’.
RD’s must complete a bachelor’s degree full of nutritional sciences and biological course work, complete an advanced degree, finish 1200 hours of supervised work, and then take a board exam with only a 50% pass rate. In addition, we are required to keep our credential through extensive continuing education.
We eat, sleep, and breathe nutrition, science, and professionalism (no pun intended).
ANYONE can call themselves a nutritionist or coach. There are no regulations behind that title at all. A ‘coach’ or ‘nutritionist’ can very well be somebody coaching off of their own experience, and someone who does not posses the knowledge needed to individualize your lifestyle choices.
Formal training and credentials are vital because what might work for one individual may be totally inappropriate, ineffective, or even harmful to another person. This is especially true when we’re talking about binge eating coaching.
 
*I call myself a coach, but I hold a dietitian credential. Very different than the coaches who have no formal training.
Can I hop on a call with you first?
I want to answer all your questions and make sure we vibe before you join, so you will be receiving voice notes from me (and at times, my team) during your application process. You are welcome (but not required) to send voice notes back! I will chat back and forth with you until you feel fully confident this is the program for you. Rather than trying to find a time that works for both of our schedules, you can respond whenever is convenient for you! BTW: This 1:1 conversation is complimentary.
