2020 might be over but it's taken a toll on you.
The stress. The uncertainty.
Leggings have replaced real pants basically 24/7.
Tired, irritable and bloated, you're thinking:
"It's time for a fresh start but will 2021 really be any different?"
Honestly, 2021 may be more of the same.
But YOU? You can show up strong, energetic and resilient.
I've taken 11 years of helping women recover from burnout and chronic stress...and boiled it down to a simple system to help you feel powerful (while dropping the weight, anxiety and fatigue.)
Hi, I'm Michelle. Fifteen years ago I got really good at passing out on the subway.
It was one more thing on a list of symptoms my doctors weren't able to help me with: Dizzy spells, anxiety, IBS and disabling fatigue.
They kept saying I was "fine."
Taking matters into my own hands, I changed my diet, changed my lifestyle, left my career in advertising and started my own business.
Since then, I’ve spent the last 11 years helping women optimize their health. I’ve been lucky enough to be featured on ABC News, CBC News, NPR, and more, while raising a busy family, moving up and down the East coast 6 times, managing a popular podcast, and running two thriving businesses as a single mom.
Listen, I know that a lot of health experts are telling you to stop eating carbs or go keto or whatever.
But guess what?
That's because they can't sell books titled "Eat Moderately and Have Cake Sometimes." In fact, I know so many health authors and experts...and guess what we eat when we get together? Very often it's...
Pizza! Or beer! Or both.
Stop getting discouraged that you can't be perfect. NO ONE is.
The great thing is that you don't have to be perfect in order to look and feel your best.
Lift is a 5-day led group program that teaches you the most simple and effective habits you need...minus the dogma.
"Such a nice feeling to break some habits and find strength where I didn’t think I had it. Michelle talks about nutrition and powerful women - this week I feel powerful! And I lost 3 lbs." - Ali W., Massachusetts
"I’ve lost 4 lbs! Feel so much lighter, have more energy and overall I feel more myself and out of the funk I've been in for months." - Stef C., Massachusetts
"I haven't felt this good in a long, long time. It's the start of good things to come, prioritizing myself for a change." - Sophie M., New York
"I am on Day 4 of the program and already notice a lot less belly bloat and am sleeping so much better. The meals are very flavorful and I love how Michelle approaches the program from a balanced perspective. Thanks for the boost!" - Nana
"In her 5-Day Program, "Lift," Michelle has given me everything I need to get back on track. It's only Day 3 but I already feel more rested, less stressed and have more energy." - Denise
Here’s what you’ll get:
Surprise! For the first time ever, I'll be offering private email support during our 5 days together. That means you can reply to my emails with any of your questions, concerns, or if you just want to vent :) I'll be here, coaching you through the process.
A checklist tells you what you need each day for 5 days. Could it be more any more simple? You've got this. And, yes, you can drink coffee. I'm not Satan.
You'll get a full week of colorful, delicious, seasonal meals with a grab-and-go shopping list. Can't find all the ingredients? No worries. These are for suggestion and inspiration only. You do you.
We may be online but when women come together in community we naturally release oxytocin, a feel-good hormone. So, let's do lots of that. Each day there will be a chance to say hello, get ideas & ask for feedback.
Four variations of the main meal plan, with shopping lists calculated to match: Omnivore, Vegetarian, Family of Four and Solo Dining.
Michelle's suggested supplements guide for (optional) ongoing support around stress management, anxiety, insomnia, bloating and more. Includes information to find quality brands and local/online retailers.

When does Lift start?
We get started on Sunday 1/17/21 and run through Thursday 1/21/21.
Do I need to buy any special equipment or supplements?
Nope. If you have some basic kitchen tools, you're good to go.
Why just 5 days?
In my private practice I generally work with clients for a minimum of 3 months. However, since not everyone desires to work 1-on-1 or is ready for such a commitment, this 5 day program is designed to let you dip your toe in the waters. Interested in working privately? Add your name to the waitlist
What if I'm gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian or have other dietary restrictions? No problem. The principles of Lift apply to everyone. However, some recipes in the meal plan may not apply to you.
Is Lift safe while breastfeeding or pregnant? It is safe but not recommended during pregnancy. Nursing moms are welcome as long as you are getting adequate sleep.
