We are Dr Mary Barson and Dr Lucy Burns, medical doctors from Melbourne Australia. We are passionate about helping people improve their health through sustainable weight loss strategies that involve addressing the physiology and the psychology of weight management.HOW CAN YOU WORK WITH US?
So here's the thing- Most of you agree that meditation is good for you.
It's a simple concept, doesn't need fancy equipment and has profound health benefits. But yet we don't do it!
Often we tell ourselves
As you know, we are firm believers in the power of small steps.
In this meditation program, you start with one minute a day!
Everyone has time for one minute.
We build on the experience one minute at a time so that you cement your habit. Each day the time you meditate increases by a minute so in just a few short weeks you will experience the powerful healing of meditation.
There is so much evidence around the power of meditation

We promote a whole food, low carbohydrate way of eating. This has been scientifically proven to reduce weight, improve inflammation, and reverse many cases of diabetes. The food is delicious and we can guarantee, you won't be hungry! We also get into the guts of gut health, an emerging area that is clearly important to our health.
Weight loss psychology is so important! We empower you to harness your mind - the most powerful tool in the quest for good health. We get to the heart of emotional eating. Imagine if you no longer fell victim to emotional eating. We teach you how to change your mindset, your habits, and offer you the ultimate reward of food freedom!
In this fast-paced world of pressure and deadlines, our bodies and brains are suffering.
Sleep, sunshine and social connection all affect our health and wellbeing. We explain the science behind this, and help you reconnect to the things that are important to optimise your health. Understanding cortisol is the key to long term sustainable weight loss.
There is a tsunami of chronic disease heading our way that threatens our health, our lives, and our community. We are experiencing record numbers of obesity, diabetes and chronic inflammation. We are flooded with depression, anxiety, stress and poor self-worth. We are tired, hungry and over-wrought. We are surviving but not thriving. This deluge of long term chronic health conditions will bankrupt our health system, but more importantly hurt us, our families and our friends. Something has to change!
The exciting thing is that we have the ability to change our health path.
At Real Life Medicine, as holistic weight loss doctors, we are here to help guide you. We will empower you to reclaim your health and live your life on your terms.
We offer real solutions to tackle weight loss and chronic metabolic health conditions.
We address the physiological drive to eat using a real food low carbohydrate approach. Then we tackle the psychological drivers and get to the root cause of overwhelm. We do this with kindness, compassion and support. You can lose weight and reclaim your health!

Dr Lucy Burns is passionate about helping women lose weight and reclaim their health. She was overweight and an "expert yo-yo dieter", until it all stopped "working". Addressing her mindset was the key to changing her lifestyle and making healthy habits permanent. She has extensive training in this area and her analogies are well known!
Imagine everything you were told about weight loss was wrong! Our free e-book is your first step on the path to stopping yo-yo dieting and achieving sustainable weight loss. It explains why and how metabolic hormones are driving fat storage, what macronutrients are, what you need to eat to lose weight, and why food is medicine.
Dr Lucy and Dr Mary are both trained in hypnotherapy. Hypnosis is a powerful tool to unlock some of your subconscious blocks. It's a beautifully relaxing process that has wonderful health benefits aside from the actual hypnotic suggestions. Get your free hypnosis recording... and no we won't have you quacking like a duck!
This e-book was written by popular request. So many people have trouble with snacking after dinner. Their only tool is to berate themselves and try again the next day..or the next week... or sometimes the next month. This book explains the reasons behind after dinner snacking and gives you some tools to manage it, so you don't undo all the hard work you did in the day.
