Nourished & Free™

Michelle Yates, MS, RD, LMNT

Nobody likes talking about their relationship with food or with their body... so let's talk about it. I'm here to discuss all things disordered eating, body image, diet-culture, weight acceptance, and healing our relationships with food. Through battling my own body dysmorphia and disordered eating, I've now made it my mission to help women conquer food guilt, binge eating, and anything else that stands in the way of mental or physical health.

The HAES® Controversy: Is it Evidence-Based? with Dr. Idz (@dr_idz)
You might remember when I was a Health At Every Size (HAES®) advocate. HAES is a compelling rival to diet culture, and it’s easy to get sucked into this popular movement.I've changed my tune a bit, and I’ve written about my thoughts on HAES®, but I knew I needed to recruit someone else onto the podcast so we could critically look at this movement together and have a balanced conversation about it. That’s why this week’s guest is Dr. Idz.Dr. Idz is not only a powerhouse in his field but also has a knack for debunking health movements and trends.

Optavia® Secrets Revealed: Ex-Coach Tells All (with Former Client, Alizabeth)
The Optavia® diet gets some women great results, but at what cost? Today I'm joined by Alizabeth who is an ex-Optavia® coach, she initially went through the program, lost over 100lbs, and then was recruited to become a coach blinded by the dream of financial freedom. She's now pulling back the curtain to the diet in this tell-all episode. 👀 We explore the cult-like mentality, the negative side effects of eating less than 1000 calories a day, and how the coaches are more focused on money instead of their clients. We all know how these extreme diets leave people with no support AND how they can just gain it all back once they stop taking their products, but thankfully Alizabeth approached me and she's learnt how to eat grapes again without feeling guilty (an unfortunate side effect of Optavia® she experienced).If you're curious to uncover the truth about Optavia® and discover how Alizabeth broke free from its grasp, tune in to this episode now!Listen to my Optavia® diet review hereTOPICS COVERED 👇 [00:01:43] Getting hooked on Optavia®[00:06:23] The Optavia® diet experience[00:10:35] Going from client to coach[00:15:22] Expectations and requirements as an Optavia® coach[00:21:21] Negative Side Effects of Optavia®[00:25:37] Manipulation in Optavia®[00:30:11] The Struggle with Food and Fear of Weight Gain[00:32:29] Leaving Optavia® and the PushbackLEARN MORE🔥 My Signature 4-Month Program, Nourished & Free📲 Follow me on Instagram (you'll get to know me pretty quickly!)📖 Check out my Blog for tons of helpful articles SHOW SOME LOVE⭐️ Loved this episode?

Going from Calorie-Counting to Food Freedom (Client Confessional with Jaime)
Have you ever been stuck in a cycle of restrictive diets, counting every calorie, and battling guilt with every weigh-in? Join us as we talk with previous Nourished & Free™ member, Jaime, about her journey to food freedom. Jaime opens up about her experiences with a program that was fixated on the restrictive mindset and dieting, leading her down a path where she obsessively counted calories and found herself riddled with guilt at weigh-ins. Feeling trapped, she sought a more sustainable approach to nutrition, one that wouldn't have her measuring lettuce leaves to meet caloric intake goals.Jaime's story doesn't end here.

She shares her transformational journey working with me and how it changed her outlook on body image, food, and gave her the confidence to eat without guilt or restrictions.
