I teach women to come back home to their body.
To feel true hunger and to get to the root cause of emotional eating. From this feeling of clarity we can make profound changes to the way you eat in a way that is nourishing, intuitive, healthy, strategic and abundant. Almost effortless.
In the process we transform your relationship to food, to your body and your emotions.
No more diets, restrictions or pushing to get the health you desire.
It’s time to connect you back to yourself – it’s time to come back home.
It’s time to feel good!
A little about me…(more here)
I’m Michelle Lall, the Holistic Nutritionist behind L.A.L.L. Nutrition. I’m a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, a certified chemistry and biology teacher and former chemist.
But first a bit about my health history….
I spent many years struggling to lose weight and fight off acne. As a teenager it was all that I thought about and thought if I lost the weight and had glowing skin I’d finally be happy.
I started to diet (atkins, bland foods, eating disorders, restriction, no fat, no chocolate, counting calories, etc.) but I would lose weight and then my willpower would fade. I also had anorexic then binging tendencies. I would emotionally binge and finally I realized I needed to stop.
I just wanted to be “my healthy”. No more diets or restrictions or critical self talk. I wanted to feel good!
So, I gave up and ate whatever I wanted! This was freeing but also made me feel not that great. I needed to find a better solution.
I started to make small changes that felt good. Drinking more water, having breakfast, having more vegetables, etc.
I accepted my imperfect body where it was. This helped me to just want to be healthier without needing to be a certain size.
Emotional eating and binging were becoming an issue. I had gone to therapy and from researching what was going on I learned to really sit with my emotions (easier said than done). To listen to them instead of shut them up with food to cope. This was a practice.
After many years I was able to not use food to stuff my emotions. I learned how to get to the root cause of my emotional eating and started to heal my emotions and hear their messages. Surprisingly, this made eating healthier more intuitive! I wanted to nourish, not punish myself with food.
The changes I made felt empowering and like I was just becoming who I was. I was so excited and awed by the power of food as medicine and the power of emotional healing that I wanted to share this with others. I devoured every book I could on health, went to the Ann Wigmore Institue in Puerto Rico and signed up at the Institute for Holistic Nutrition.
Today, I eat in a way that is nourishing, I don’t feel deprived and I am deeply connected to my body and food has no power over me. I don’t obsess and I am able to truly follow what makes me feel good from a very aligned space. I want this for YOU.

Is this you?
Are you always on another diet? Maybe this one will work, or this. Vegan, paleo, atkins, keto, detox, fasting. You can’t seem to stay on any of them because your willpower runs out.
You rely on food for emotional reasons. To de-stress, to feel ‘good’, to avoid anything that feels uncomfortable. While that worked for a while you can see how it is harming your body and you feel stuck and powerless.
You’re not sure when you are hungry. You might eat something only to realize you were already full.
You’ve been gaining weight and no matter what you do, how you restrict yourself it has become torture to maintain it.
You punish and reward yourself with food. You don’t understand why food has so much power over you.
You may have digestive issues, constipation, acne, low energy, feeling out of control or depressed by life. And you feel you need to do something!
Even though you might know what ‘healthy’ looks like you struggle to eat that way – you feel deprived. You need support and clarity!
I get it. I was the same way. I felt lost but I found my way out. You can too!
Wouldn’t it be nice to know when you were hungry, thirsty or emotionally eating?
Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up and have a morning ritual that replenishes and nourishes you before you head out the door and reconnects you back to your body? To make nourishing choices so you can walk out the door feeling in charge of your health and well being?
Wouldn’t it be nice to get to the root cause of those emotions that have been making you overeat and reach for foods that don’t nourish you? To truly integrate these aspects of you so that you feel whole and empowered?
Would it be nice to feel in control and at ease all at once? Creating a sustainable way of being for yourself.
Wouldn’t it be nice to know how much water to drink, how much food to eat and how to eat in a balanced way for your biochemistry that is intuitive? In a way that is effortless and intuitive.
Wouldn’t it be nice to still go out with friends and choose to eat in a YOU friendly way without feeling guilt and knowing you are honouring your body?
Wouldn’t it feel good to finally accept your body now, acknowledge it and from this place to create your healthiest body – “Your healthy”?
Wouldn’t it be amazing to wake up and just feel good as you are?
Do you need support and guidance?
I’ve worked with some amazing women who have made significant changes to the way they are nourishing their bodies, to seeing emotional eating patterns and integrating their emotions to become more whole. They come back home to themselves. Here are a few quotes but for full testimonials click here.
“I’m so glad that I decided to work with Michelle. I originally just wanted to make some simple dietary changes to feel more energetic during the day but what I ended up getting by the end of the 12 week program was so much more than that.
My skin cleared up, I lost weight and I was able to create really healthy habits that will serve me for the rest of my life.
…I highly recommend working with Michelle! Not only is she super knowledgeable and fun but she can help you through the tough emotions that prevent you from reaching your health goals. “
-Alanna L, HR Specialist, Toronto, ON
“…Right after our first call I knew I wanted to work with Michelle. She is so easy to talk to and I felt so comfortable with her from the beginning.
Since working with Michelle I am much more in tune with myself and my body, and my relationship with food. Her guided meditations were invaluable to me and opened me up to feelings I had let go and ignored – allowing me to face them in a positive way.
I got so much more out of this 12-week program than I could’ve imagined and I’m super grateful that I got to work with her…”
