Episode Seventy Summary

  • Tracey McBeath - Tracey is a holistic health coach from Melbourne, Australia. She is also a mum of 5 kids from 7-20 years. She has run a successful coaching business helping people nail their low carb lifestyle for the past 6 years. Prior to that she was a PT for 12 years. She herself has been through some major transformations and healing, including reversing pre-diabetes at age 40 and overcoming a lifetime of emotional eating and drinking habits. Tracey is also a public speaker and mentors other coaches looking to truly show their clients where to look for healing. Tracey has also organised for two years running, The Low Carb Lifestyle Long Weekend Women’s Health Summit, a 3-day virtual weekend looking at holistic healing from a low carb perspective.
  • The organic developmental process of Tracey's book, You Have Today: 100 Insights that will change your life” - during the Melbourne lockdown in June and July last year, Tracey began to share insights on a daily basis that she thought would help people to navigate through the challenging times they were facing. Once she reached day 100 of doing this, she came to the conclusion that she should compile these 100 insights into a book.
  • You miss 100% of the shots you don't take - putting yourself out there, such as writing a book, can leave you open to criticism which can be scary, particularly with today's social media platforms. However, unless you, Go out on a limb, because that's where the fruit is”, you will never get the fruit.
  • There is always more to see - in any situation there are always opportunities to see more if we can create the space in our mind to allow new and fresh stuff to come in.
  • Getting comfortable with being uncomfortable - whether we are changing our behaviour, what we eat, the way we think, or the way we live, it will feel uncomfortable but that's okay. We don't need to fear the discomfort.
  • Gut feelings - if we connect back into our body, we become aware that it is telling us things and giving us wisdom that we can tune into and let guide us. It is always there, but most of the time we're up in our head, and we're tuned out of it.
  • Whatever you are tuned into is what you're going to hear most - when you are tuned into overthinking and living in your head and in your feelings all the time, it is very distorted and limited and does not allow you to see through a clear lens, leading you to be blind to and miss a lot of the other parts of life. 
  • Tracey's book is like the tarot cards of thoughts - you can pick out a thought from the book each day, and whatever you read, it will be perfect for you on that day. The book is a collection of possibilities and options that you may not have considered.

100 insights that will change your life

  

Dr Mary Barson: Hello, my lovely listeners. I'm Dr Mary Barson.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: And I'm Dr Lucy Burns. Welcome to this episode of Real Health and Weight Loss. Good morning, lovely listeners. It's Dr Lucy here. As you know, we love to bring you guests that we think will provide some value to you. Maybe have some wisdom or some snippets of knowledge, something that will just, you'll leave the podcast and go, “I'm so glad I listened to this”. Well today, I can guarantee that we have one of the best, one of the most amazing people that we know well and love dearly. And we have got a bumper episode for you today. I would love to welcome to the podcast, “The Health & Healing Coach”, Tracey McBeath. Welcome, Tracey.

 

Tracey McBeath: Aww, thank you so much, Dr Lucy. It's such a pleasure to be here and the feeling is totally mutual by the way.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Oh, well you're very kind. But you know, I think the thing that both Tracey and certainly Dr Mary and I are passionate about is the idea that, you know, low carb can be helpful, but if you can't implement it for whatever reason, then it doesn't matter how helpful it is. It's all about your mindset. And seriously, Tracey is a guru at mindset management, and we've got a lot to talk about today. And we will also be talking about, and I'm holding it in my hand like this incredible tome that it is, it's her new book. It's absolutely beautiful and I can't wait to share it with you. So Trace, tell us, how have you been? How have you been going?

 

Tracey McBeath: I've been going really, really well. I think the perspective that COVID and lockdowns has given me, and a lot of people has been actually quite cleansing in a lot of ways. I've been able to sort of, you know, shuffle things around and really work out what's important, and you know, there's been so many new opportunities constantly coming my way. And you know, I love grabbing them and seeing where they go, and you know, not knowing where they're going to go, is okay. And I think there's been a lot of those happening for me. So I'm, I'm doing really, really well and just enjoying where I am.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Ah, it's so wonderful. And you're right, I think COVID certainly gave plenty of people time for reflection, and I'm sure you've done, you know, reflection exercises with your clients. But we did one recently where you know, it was the wheel of life and just mapping out exactly, you know, where you are in each area of your life and working out, you know, that you might be spending a lot of time for example doing work, but not as much time maybe with your friends or your family or having fun or whatever it is. And then just recalibrating to get back to what's important to you.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah, absolutely. And I think the thing with that is, that there's this kind of this little knowing inside of us that is always there, and when we're out of balance, it's kind of speaking to us. And that's, I think what I've gotten a lot better at and what I love showing my clients how to connect with that too, because you do feel when you're out of balance, don't you? Something's telling you and I think, you know, our job is merely to take that pause and take that step back and really look at what it is, rather than, you know, keeping on going down that vein, just using the opportunity to take that step back and pause. And that's what I think COVID did give me. I know it wasn't pleasant, and a lot of people are suffering and have suffered from it, but I think personally, it was an opportunity to really take that pause and see. Make sure that I was in balance. And yeah, do the changes that I needed to make, and I did do that. But I'll probably have to do it again soon, you know, we always got to keep recalibrating.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yep, absolutely, it's not a set and forget. You kind of can't look at it and go, “Oh, good. I've done that now. Tick that off the list and go back to what I used to do”.

 

Tracey McBeath: Absolutely, absolutely, yep.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: It's so interesting, isn't it? I love the idea that you're talking about the balance because you know, balance, as humans we often you know, fall into that all or nothing mindset and finding balance can be tricky. It can be really hard and a little bit scary.

 

Tracey McBeath: Definitely it can. But I think when we see that that's actually really quite normal and it's probably something as you say, that is a part of the human condition, it really kind of helps take that, that fear of away from it. We don't think it's just me. You know, it's really something I think we all need to be more aware of and mindful of, and it's possible.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Absolutely. So speaking of, you know, venturing into the unknown, and you know, putting ourselves out there, you have written a book. So the book is called, “You Have Today: 100 Insights that will change your life” by Tracey McBeath. The world's most awesome person. So tell us about that. How did you come up with the idea? I would love to know the process.

 

Tracey McBeath: Okay, so I, I've had in the back of my mind for quite, quite some time, that it was something that I would have liked to do at some point in my life, write a book. And when we went into in Melbourne, sixth or seventh lockdown, you know, June, July last year, I realised that I was going to, I guess I decided really quickly that I was going to just control what I could control. I think, you know, when we have the outside world forced upon us, we try and fight. We you know, we get very frustrated, and we try and change and control things that are probably not in our control. I really just had this incredible sort of insight that that was what I was going to do, and share that with my tribe, if you like. You know, my, my people, my Instagram people. And I decided then that I was going to start what was called a year of abundance. And you know, my thought was, each day I would share something that I saw that would hopefully be able to help people navigate, you know, these times as well. And I didn't from that, I had no preconceived notion that that would become a book or anything at that point. It was just merely that I would show up. And I knew, I just knew something would occur to me in each day, if I didn't force it, if I just allowed it to present itself to me. And I did that and I, it just happened that way. I started to see things in each day that I would just share, without any trying to mould it, or try and for it to be something else other than what it was. And I got to day 100 and it, it was like the same insight that I had when I started. It was just like, “You know what? You need to put this into a book now. This is it, you've done. You don't need to go for a year, you don't need to go for any longer than that. Like in 100 insights, look how much there is in that”. And it was literally, the universe said to me, I mean it sounds weird, but it was like, “You've got to do a book with that”.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah, fantastic.

 

Tracey McBeath: And that's how it came, and Lucy as I said to you before we started recording, if I'd've sat down and said, “Right, write a book”, I don't think I could have done it. I really don't think I could have done it. It was just so organic, and it so came truly from a place of my heart. Whatever I saw, without judgement, without trying to do anything other than share what I saw, it, I just allowed it to happen. And then of course, I was like, "Could I do it? Can I put it into a book? I've never done that, what do I do”? And there was of course, a whole lot of insecure thoughts that came up around that. But I just took it one step at a time, and even to the day before it was going to be published, I wanted to pull the pin and run away.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Oh, gosh, and you know what I love about that is that, I mean, a) It is, it's such a good book that I'm thinking, “Why the hell would you not want this out there”? But b) It shows us how vulnerable as humans we are, and how frightening it is to put yourself in the ring, you know, Brené and Teddy Roosevelt style, knowing that there will be people in the cheap seats throwing rocks, because that's just humans, but that they don't matter.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah, exactly. You know, I was, I've always been so afraid of that Lucy, you know. I don't know why, I just, it's part of, you know, maybe it is part of the human condition to some degree on some level for everybody. But that fear of having rocks thrown at me, you know, because I did put my heart out there. I have, you know, definitely been vulnerable in doing that. But I think I saw enough to see that, you know, that was okay. I could feel that, and I could still step out and do it. And I'm so, so glad I did. I just, imagine if I'd never done it.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: I know, I know. And this is the thing isn't it, you can look and go, “Oh my god. So this was you know, it's a bit scary. And it's a bit hard and you've done it and you've put yourself out there”. And I mean, this isn't a metaphor for life, really. Because if you didn't, you would just be home in your bedroom, always wondering.

 

Tracey McBeath: 100% of the shots we don't take don't go in, you know that. That's one of them. That's one of the insights. If we don't even make the shot, if we don't even attempt the shot, well of course it's not going to go in.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yep.

 

Tracey McBeath: But when, and when you think of it like the hammer, and it's like, bam, of course. It's so obvious, isn't it?

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah, absolutely. Yeah, yeah, you cannot win a game if you don't take the shot, that's for sure. I think there was a quote that I used to use that I used to think about a lot. And it was always called, “Go out on a limb, because that's where the fruit is”. And it's not my quote. I would love to, and it was some sort of, some old economist. I don't even know why he was putting that out there. But I just thought it was such a, again same thing, you're taking a risk, you're going to the edge of your tree, you know, the tree could bend, the tree could break. But if you never go there, you'll never get the fruit.

 

Tracey McBeath: And then the opposite side of that, well not really opposite side of that. But it's also, you can be the ripest, juiciest peach on the tree, but not everyone likes peaches, you know.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yes.

 

Tracey McBeath: That's okay, you know. How would I ever think that what I put out there would work for everybody? It's not going to, but that's okay. It's not, you know, just one little person. And really all I've done is put a piece of me out there and what I've seen, and if somebody does pick it up, there might be something that they can see in it, too.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah, yeah, absolutely. I think part of the, I guess the fear if you like, of putting yourself out there these days is that it is really easy for people who don't know you to be able to publicly criticise on social media, and various platforms. And I think that's a bit of a shame. In the past, to be able to publicly criticise somebody was a bit, there was a bit more barriers. You had to actually write to the editor. Now, people can just throw those rocks.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yes, and that's true. I've never really thought of how easy you know, from that perspective, just all those little barriers that used to be there definitely aren't there now. And I suppose, you know, when you think about the whole purpose of what I do, it's really getting people to, to hold that mirror up, and to look within them and see. So what I saw that, you know, people can throw the rocks, but you know, I don't need to take that. I don't need to be affected by that. It's up to me what I choose to sort of take on and you know, it comes back to that, what can you control and what can't you control? We know we can't control what other people say or think.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Absolutely. And in some ways, I think if you almost go right, and again this is for everybody, no matter what you do, somebody will criticise you and that's often not even about you. It's actually about them, and for whatever reason, they feel better by hurling a rock. And then they toddle off for their cold little lives, and you know, and we can decide to take that rock into our heart, or just let it drop on the ground.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah, yeah. I totally agree. It's so freeing when you see that.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah. And you know what, your book has dozens of insights in there for people to be able to read something and be able to look at it through maybe just a slightly different lens to the way they've always thought.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah, yeah. And that's exactly what the book is. It's not really a book designed to read cover to cover. You can do that if you would like, but it's really more to allow you to read something short and reflect on it and see what occurs to you and see what you see. And I suppose the whole purpose is that I want people to know, as I've really learned, that there is always more to see, you know. That any situation that is in front of us that we're looking at, there is opportunities to see more and, you know, how do you create that space inside our mind to allow that to happen? Because it's very natural, it will happen. But you know, we have to kind of step away from, you know, perhaps a very busy mind and an overthinking mind to allow that new stuff and fresh stuff to come in.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Absolutely. I think probably lots of our listeners know that I've been running some retreats for doctors; mindfulness and meditation and self-care. And one of the things that my co-convener Emily says is that meditations are often like a jar that's full of sandy water. And then when you allow some time and some stillness, the sand all drops to the bottom, and then you've got your clarity.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah, I love that. I often talk about it as like the snow globe. You know, it's the same, same idea. You know, it's so innocent you know, we don't realise that we're creating that murk.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah, well we're creating a snowstorm in our mind. And it's, and I think these days, too, it's so addictive, isn't it? You can keep your mind busy on your watch if you want to. Your phone's always in reach and you know, when you, you've got your phone there and you decide not to touch it, it's hard. It feels uncomfortable. Your brain just wants to grab it and have a little look at something.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yes, and that's comes back to what we were saying before that, you know, it's almost like if you don't increase your awareness of this habitual nature of human beings and how the world is designed now for us to be hooked in, to buy, to consume, to whatever, you know, if we don't become aware of that, then we just get hooked and we're pulled along by it. But you know, it is that awareness inside that allows us to see that maybe we don't have to, you know. Yes, it'll be uncomfortable, but that's okay. Why do we have to fear that discomfort, you know? We've talked about this before, Lucy, you know. 

 

Dr Lucy Burns: I know.

 

Tracey McBeath: It's such a good thing, not to fear.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Absolutely, getting comfortable with being uncomfortable. And I mean, there's lots of different ways, some people will talk about a growth edge and at the edge of you growing, that it's actually quite uncomfortable. It is normal, we're changing our behaviour, whether we're changing our diet, the way we eat, or the way we think, or the way we live. You know, maybe we decide to become less busy and spend a bit more time just sitting, it all feels really uncomfortable.

 

Tracey McBeath: It does, it does. But it is you know, as I say, as you say too, I think it's just such a, we get curious about that, we might see that it's not as scary as we think it is. And I think if we don't build in that intention to get curious, then yeah we just, life just feels like it's pulling us, you know. We're not really on the path that we want to be on. We're on a path of just how life wants us to be on and feels very much like quite out of control, doesn't it? And not good.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah.

 

Tracey McBeath: Not a good feeling.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: No, no. And it's really interesting, isn't it? People try and put in parameters to control, but then they're looking at controlling external things and that's impossible. So you feel like you're constantly, constantly trying to control external things.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah. And that is impossible and exhausting. You know the, one of the biggest tools I, I've realised in my personal life, that impacts my coaching is that the mirror is the most important tool there is. You know, what creates a feeling in me is mine. And where that comes from is my teacher. And it's innocent, you know people don't realise, but they do try and control what goes on outside there, and I think that is just, it's just exhausting. And then there's very little bandwidth or energy left to deal with what's actually you know, important to them in their life. And, yeah.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yep. So what, what sort of tools do you use for your you know, your clients, that might say, “Yeah, I can see what's happening. I'm busy, I'm trying to control everything, what should I do?”

 

Tracey McBeath: Okay well, I think a lot of the, a lot of the sessions I have, especially in the beginning with my clients, even though I you know, I sit in that food space, like you know, and health space, we don't generally get to food for the first little bit, because I think people sort of search me out to try and get help with this mindset and clarity. And I think you know, one of the biggest things I do is to get my clients to connect with back into their body. I think you know, we're so out of, out of our body so much of the time, that when we first start to do it again, it's new, and it's uncomfortable, and it feels really weird. But knowing that we're only ever living in the feeling of our thinking, and if we connect into our body, it's going to be telling us and giving us wisdom and giving us signs that we can tune into and let guide us, when we know it's there and when we are tuned into it. I think it's always there, but most of the time we're up in our head, and we're tuned out of it.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: You know when you say that, like it's so obvious, isn't it? Because we use that gut feeling word all the time. And we're quite disconnected from our language these days. But yeah, where do we think gut feelings come from? You know for a lot of people, they feel stuff in their gut.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: And I certainly know when I get anxious, it's my middle of that, the old-fashioned solar plexus. It's where if I'm tuning into it, it's there. Feels, I can feel it. Where do you feel yours?

 

Tracey McBeath: Definitely my gut as well. But you know, sometimes it might be chest. You know, I have clients that feel it up in their chest or in their you know, in the back of their neck or, I think it can be anywhere. But I think it's just, you know, it is just that beautiful inbuilt messenger that we can listen to. It's really, really powerful when you do just switch that radio station. I talk about a, like a radio station. Whatever you're tuned into is what you're going to hear most. Now if you're tuned in to overthinking and a whole lot of thought, you're actually, I do a little activity, that one of the things I do do with my clients that, I know this is just the sound but if you're listening, if you can imagine it and do it yourself, it will show you what I'm talking about. But I get my clients and I do it too, to put their hands up in front of their face. And then I say to them, “So, tell me what you see”? And they're like, “Oh, well you know, I could see this and I can see a bit of that”, and then I say, “Well, that's actually what life is like for you when you are living in your head and in your feelings all the time. That's what, what you're seeing through”.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah, so it's not a clear lens, it's like something, like a shade over it or bits and pieces.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yes, it's very distorted, it's very cut off, it's very limited, isn't it? And then I say, “Well, so if you just move your hands away from your head and down to here, you know, what do you see”? Well, of course you see so much more. And so we talk about how when we're walking around living up here, we just miss so much of life. We miss so much of the good stuff. So that's just a little one that we do and often you see their faces are just, oh yeah, wow. You know, just that visualisation can be really powerful.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Absolutely. And this is the thing, it sometimes doesn't take a lot, does it, for like the penny to drop. And again, coming back to your book, there will be people that will read a chapter, and so the way the book works, if you know, I'm obviously holding it, and you can't see, but it's a lovely, it's 100 chapters, but then they're just, some of them are just a page, some of them are a couple of pages. So you can just pick it up wherever you like if you want to, if you're one of those random people like I am, where I think, “Oh, I think I'll read chapter five today”. And there's a little insight in there that will speak to you. And if you are a little bit, you know there are people that love, and I do and I know you do, love a bit of serendipity or a bit of the universe. What I love is the idea that no matter what chapter I open, it will be the right one for me today. So I can open it and I'll go, “Oh, yeah, that's right. That's what I needed to hear today”. So that will be, that'll be awkward for the people that like to read from order, from 1 to 100. That's okay, you can go from 1 to 100. Or you can just randomly pick it up wherever you like and know that this is not a book that you read it and go, “Oh good, I've done that, and put it away”. It would be a book that you have sitting around, it might be on your desk at work, or your desk at home, or on your coffee table, or even on your kitchen. Because you can just pick it up and go, “What do I need to hear today”? And the way I was thinking about it, I know that, you know there are people out there that maybe do tarot cards, and that's what they do. They'll pick out a card and go right, “What do I need to hear today”? I reckon this is like the tarot cards of thoughts.

 

Tracey McBeath: I love it. I love it, I think that's such a great way to explain it.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah. And whatever you read, it will be perfect for you on that day.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah. Well it's funny, because I've got my own copy obviously, on the coffee table, and I do that myself. And you know, it's the endless, I think insights are endless. So you know, I'll read even something that I've written, and something will pop out to me, like it's the first time I've seen it. I just think that is the beauty of it. You know, every time you will read it, something new will occur to you, something new, you'll see something that you hadn't seen before. And it's also, you just have to look you know, because it's certainly not telling you to do anything. You know, you know I'm not like that. I don't tell anybody to do anything. I show possibilities and I show options. And I suppose that's what this is, is a collection of possibilities and options that you may not have considered.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Absolutely, yeah. And I think, you know, the idea that a thought is just a connection between the two nerve cells in your brain. And the more we think it, the deeper it is. So it is understandable that we have this kind of thought network, that it becomes automatic. So to step outside that automatic thought network and see that there's a whole heap of other things, it's like, if you drive to work the same way every day, and you didn't realise that you could go down the road and go past a beautiful park or something like that. You just didn't know it was there. It's exactly like that.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yes, and that's just limitless, isn't it?

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Oh, totally.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah. I mean, that to me is beautiful. I hope for the rest of my life till my last breath that I will be constantly seeing something new. And I think that is the possibility that is available.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yes. And I guess on the flip side of that, people can then get cross with themselves that they didn't see it earlier. And yeah, they go, “Oh my god, I can't believe I've been thinking like this for 20 years and now look, I've wasted all this time”, and I just, you know, that critical voice, but the thing is that sometimes you're not ready to see stuff. Sometimes there's protective, subconscious protective mechanisms we don't realise. So it's always, things just appear when, you know, what's that saying? “When the student is ready, the teacher appears”.

 

Tracey McBeath: Absolutely. It's so true. It's so true, yep.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah. So Trace, if people wanted to buy a copy of your book, and I'm hoping they will because it is totally awesome, where do they do this?

 

Tracey McBeath: So you can buy it through any Amazon. If you're listening in Australia, com.au. If you're, wherever you are in the world, you'll have your own Amazon, you can go on there and you can purchase the Kindle version, which is not very much money at all. But to me it's, it's really, it's interesting because I feel that it's a hard copy book to hold. And that was the purpose of it. And very few people have purchased the Kindle book. There are you know, people I think are just seeing that it is a book to have and feel and touch.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah, you could take it on holidays with you. It's, you know what, I'm, look I'm an avid Kindle reader because for me, I always like to have a book available. But I didn't buy this on Kindle for that exact reason. I thought no, this is a tactile book. I want to touch it. I want to be able to just flip it open and you know, tarot card the hell out of it.

 

Tracey McBeath: I was just gonna say Dr Lucy that I'm planning on doing an Audible version, but I am going to read it myself. Because you know, sometimes you buy Audible and I would love to hear the author.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Totally, totally. And do you know what, I have listened to Denise DT, Denise Duffield-Thomas, who's an Australian author. She reads her own books. She reads them with imperfections, and I love that, because she reads it. And she says, “Oh, I just made a mistake”. And then she just carries on. And I just thought, that is so beautiful, so beautiful.

 

Tracey McBeath: I love that. I love that too, because you know what? I'm finding that I'm struggling to find the time to do it, because the whole street needs to be quiet. I started the other day and two doors down a house started getting knocked down. It's sort of like, “Okay, it's not now then”. But you know, I do find that I skip over and then I just pause, and I thought I'll just, you know, I'll edit that bit out. But you know, I think you know, there is a degree isn't there. But perfection of course, that is something that gets us stuck a lot doesn't it.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Totally, totally. And yeah, we get paralysed because it's not perfect. But you know, humans are never perfect and when we strive for perfection, we will never, ever get there, and it doesn't have to be perfect to be awesome.

 

Tracey McBeath: No, it so doesn’t, and I think that the last insight in the book, in my book, sort of says something along those lines, you know, pick yourself up and, and walk your imperfectly perfect self. And off you go you know, like that's what we're all like.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Yeah, yep, we are. We totally are and we forget. And we start looking at perfection in ourselves and perfection in others, particularly if we're not feeling it in ourselves. And you know, I guess that's part of that just, if we generally just lower the judgement level for both other people and ourselves, we're much, much happier.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah, I agree. And isn't that interesting how you say that you know, often when we're so harsh on ourselves, we're so harsh on others. I do think that, I think it's again that mirror, you know, become aware of when you are harsh on others and judging others. You know, maybe it's you that you need to be a lot softer and gentle with.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Absolutely, absolutely. And Trace if people wanted to connect with you, you know as a coach. So for those of you who don't know Tracey, she's a nutrition network coach. She helps, she actually helps the nutrition network with their coaching program. She does low carb health, fitness, like she's just an all-round guru really, and we totally love her. So if anybody wanted to connect with you, where do they go?

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah, so just head to my website, Tracy McBeath. M, C, B, E, A, T, H. No one can ever spell it. McBar, McBath, whatever.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Well, it's not one of the common Mcs, is it? But Mcs in general can be misspelt with an Mac, a little D, a big D, or whatever it is. So it's M, little C, capital B, E, A, T, H. Tracy McBeath.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yes, .com.au and I have a lot of information on my website that will cost you nothing, that will just you know, show you something if you want to have a look. I mean, there is not, you know coaching isn't for everybody, but there's plenty on there. And you can connect with me through that and I, and my Instagram is my love. I do love my Instagram page. It's my favourite social media and I do try and check in there every day. And I just actually did a video, I had a half an hour between a client and our chat, and I was talking about owning our own thoughts and feelings.

 

Dr Lucy Burns: Wonderful.

 

Tracey McBeath: Yeah. So along these lines, you know there's so much freedom to come and we can see that, so.
