“When I was in the thick of my depression, I found that bad habits were easy to slip into and good ones easy to excuse away. Food was definitely a big part of this equation. Quick fix food felt great for a moment but pretty soon zapped me of energy, made it harder to concentrate, and overall contributed to a feeling of heading in the wrong direction. I LOVE Michele’s approach to realistically eating well! We’re not robots and our diets don’t have to be perfect and boring. Small changes can lead to big positive things."
Michele, thank you for your wonderful presentation at Department of Defence. The presentation was fun, engaging and inspirational and it got EVERYONE talking about sugar and the importance of healthy eating, which is what it's all about... my team and I have already made changes. Thank you again for providing this crucial information in such a personable and enjoyable way, while still being direct and "telling it how it is!"
One sign of an effective inspiring presenter is evident in the number of students who remain behind to ask questions (even during their lunch break!). It was great to hear the girls chat about the challenges you posed, buzz about the role nutrition will play in successfully negotiating the pressures of their HSC year ahead and, from what I hear, pass on new pearls of wisdom to their mothers. These are the marks of learning and engagement, thank you Michele.
Michele spoke to the Heads of Independent Schools of NSW and the ACT at their quarterly conference. Her presentation was energetic, dynamic and transformational. Her messages were practical, insightful and readily able to be implemented in our busy lives. Michele was inspiring & motivating!
I approached Michele Chevalley Hedge at A Healthy View after watching her speak at several other educational events earlier in the year and I hoped she would be available to address the delegates at The School Nurses Association Michele spoke to us about Vitality, Energy and Balancing Hormones available from the food we choose to eat and the need to reduce the sugar intake in our daily diet. Michele is energetic, vital and a living example of the end result of a well-balanced diet and lifestyle. She inspired us with her motivation and encouraged all to make healthy choices and project this message to the students in our care. Nurses commented that Michele was invigorating and encouraging. Her presentation was entertaining and interesting providing useful strategies for delegates and those under their care.
“Michele, 10! and I am not just being kind.”
Michele Chevalley Hedge was invited to speak at the Women in Focus conference, 2014. Her modern day approach to nutrition was well received by participants as she shared her expertise in a light, accessible and interesting way.

There may be many wellness practitioners stepping into the space of health and food but there are not many nutritionists who come from busy corporate backgrounds, have three kids and who really can understand modern day peoples’ requirements for health, happy hormones, and vitality.
Michele Chevalley Hedge was previously a marketing manager so she truly understands the needs of time-poor corporate executives who, family or not, want health but not hassle. She is often introduced by health magazine editors as “the modern day nutritionist – the one who likes a bit of wine and coffee.” She is not Paleo Pete or I Quit Sugar, but perfectly placed somewhere in the healthy middle.
Michele’s clinical practice and experience allow her to share stories of patients and their nutritional transformation which give the audience goose bumps – the kinds of stories that can only be heard if you are at the coal face with clients. Women who say their addiction to food caused their divorce; executives who say they don’t like going to the boardroom without her five top tips; and politicians, and their families, who come to her wellness retreats. Recognising her sensible approach to nutrition, two years ago, Wiley Publishing commissioned Michele to write Beating Sugar Addictions for Dummies.
In 2017 life is busy, but the desire for a lean body, clear mind and happy hormones are on the rise. Michele is a sought after presenter because she is authentic and connects to people who desire knowledge, but not in an overwhelming jargon filled way or with a fad diet.
Every week, Michele works with major banks in Australia – Westpac, CBA, ANZ, HSBC, and corporations like Apple, News.com, MFAA, Women in Focus, ACCOR, Westfield, Department of Defence, Tourism Portfolio, Heart Research Australia, Cure Cancer, and schools and education events. She is the keynote speaker for the Heads of Schools of Australia and the Positive Schools Conference in Hong Kong. Michele is also an ambassador for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution and for the launch of THAT SUGAR FILM.
Michele is the Nature Care College Ambassador, Cure Cancer Ambassador and Heart Research Institute Ambassador and consults for the Accor Group. She recently sat alongside the Dalai Lama at a conference where she presented on ‘Vitality, Energy and Serotonin – It’s all in Your Food’. Mental health and nutrition research is her passion and she often declares, “It makes the New Yorker come out in her.”
When Michele is not out speaking, writing or seeing patients, she can often be found at her cafe, The Balmoral Boatshed. It is the perfect spot for filming, interviewing, or just enjoying a glass of wine (which she will tell you reduces your cortisol and can lead to a calmer, happier and perhaps leaner person!).
Michele loves to write, so along with her blog and social media, she writes for Body & Soul, Huffington Post, Mama Mia, The Glow, Prevention, Wellbeing, Clean, Cosmo, MindFood and many more. Her second book, ‘Nourish NOT Punish- reset your wellness in 28 days’ will be out at the end of this year. Michele often appears on The Sunrise Show to discuss the World Health Organisation’s recommendations on nutrition, cancer and sugar.
Last year, Michele’s business, A Healthy View, expanded to New York and the US with the addition of her online programs. Passionate, authentic and knowledgeable, Michele has several degrees and a diploma of Nutritional Medicine and is a member of the Australian Traditional Medicine Society. Michele is an educator, storyteller, and passionate researcher. People love her.
She is the mother of three hungry teenagers, a busy husband, a messy home and a really dumb dog. Michele often weaves her personal life stories into her speaking engagements. She talks about her own adrenal fatigue after her younger brother died, only last year, from toxic fumes and lung cancer as a result of being a fireman on 9-11. She explains her personal experience of becoming a conscious cook when she sailed around the world for two years with her husband and baby. She concludes, “Life has many bumps, but with good nutrition, we can nourish a productive brain, a healthy body, and emotional stability”.
