Food Freedom Fundamentals - Online course

An online, self-paced course to help you develop a peaceful, joyful and pleasurable relationship with food


"Weight loss does not need to be the goal of every food or health related endeavour we take"


Welcome to Food Freedom Fundamentals, Messy healths first online course. This course is a self-paced course, each lesson was created to help you unpack your underlying mentality around food.

Are you sick of dieting? Sick of feeling anxious about food? Tired of not being comfortable going out to eat with your friends and loved ones? Obsessively reading food labels? Following meal plans and constantly feeling like your body, your hunger and your weight are the problem? Then this course is for you.This course was made to not only help you unlearn conditioned beliefs around food but to also help you relearn freedom around food.

Food freedom fundamentals is a tool that can help you navigate away from feeling out of control with food, to learning how to eat intentionally (this is key if you're someone who has dieted and now doesn't know how to listen to your body or intuitive eating seems confusing) and then we discuss how we can begin eating intuitively and in harmony with our body.

Maddie (the founder of Messy Health and The Messy Health online school) spent years healing her own relationship with food, studied nutrition science and food psychology and has since been working with clients to help them feel confident and in control around food, reform a peaceful relationship with their body and eat intuitively.

Your Instructor

Hi there!! My name is Maddie (she/her) and I am a registered Nutritionist, educator and student therapist from a little beach town in south west Australia. I am the founder of Messy Health which has grown from an Instagram account where I share my tips and tricks on nutrition, intuitive eating, binge eating, and more, to a private practice and online school!
If you are interested, I have a bachelor of food and nutrition science, currently undertaking a master of counselling and will be starting my PhD next year. I have worked in the Australian and American media as a nutrition advisor, and as a researcher in gut health! I currently work clinically and facilitate our food therapy program with my amazing clients.
Messy Health is a company dedicated to creating an educational space for those working on their mental health, healing their relationship with food, feeling peaceful about their body, and taking back joy and pleasure in their life. Through my journey of developing peace around food and my body, coupled with my education in nutrition, food science, and psychotherapy, I have the knowledge and understanding to help facilitate healing around food, body image, the body, and how they all intersect.
Although the majority of my academic training is in nutrition and food science, I am very passionate about sexual health. sex positivity, body image, relational health, trauma and addiction, and all aspects of mental health and I plan to continue exploring these areas while studying mental health counselling. I practice through a feminist, social justice, Health At Every Size lens and hold inclusivity and accessibility as a top priority.
