12 Weeks to Real Health and Permanent Weight Loss
Jan 19, 2022
We are two passionate medical doctors, Dr Lucy Burns and Mary Barson. We met by chance at a Medical Low Carb conference in 2019, and straight away discovered we had an awful lot in common.
We are both passionate about the benefits of Low Carb Nutrition for long-term health and weight loss. We are both skilled in Psychological Medicine and Mindset Management. We are both dedicated General Practitioners, Lifestyle Medicine Doctors as well as Medical Hypnotherapists. It was a lot!
It soon became clear that we needed to work together to create an accessible online program to empower people across the globe to revolutionise their health and lose weight permanently with our two key principles of:
- Healing the metabolic hormones that are the key driver of being overweight; and
- Mindset management infused with compassion and kindness (because mindset is so much more than just discipline).
From this meeting of minds, Real Life Medicine was formed.
Together, we transformed our desire to help more people get well and lose weight into our online courses and memberships.
Our signature program the 12 Week Mind Body Rebalance was born.
This program has it all: an encouraging and supportive community, vital weekly coaching with Dr Lucy and Dr Mary and fantastic content delivered online.
The fabulous content includes seven indispensable modules (described below) that make permanent weight loss simple.
Simple but effective
Simple but based in science.
Simple but without gimmicks, false promises and impossible short cuts.
Simple but REAL.
This is the path…
Module 1 - Food is Medicine
- We show you how to lose weight without being hungry! “That’s insane right - surely to lose weight I need to eat less and so I have to be hungry, right?” WRONG. When you eat with our recommended eating style, we can guarantee you will not be hungry.
- We show which foods to eat for health and weight loss… and they may not be what you think. Food can either help you or harm you. We show you how to create delicious, simple food to maximise your nutrition, nourish your body, nurture your soul and you will lose weight along the way. How good is that!
- Food to keep you full. Hunger is something that most people are worried about. We show you short cuts to delicious food combinations that ensure you will not be hungry. It’s so much easier to lose weight when you are not hungry!
- Recipes... We have gathered for you, incredible recipes that are easy and family-friendly. How often have you bought a recipe book, only to never open it? Well, we have sourced for you, the perfect recipe collection - not too many - just the right amount to offer you choice without overwhelming you.
- What about alcohol? “Do I have to stop drinking to lose weight?” No! Interestingly not all alcohol is created equally and the answer is, you can still drink alcohol and lose weight! We reveal which drinks are best and which drinks are worst for health and weight loss and have a cheat sheet to make it easy!
- What about artificial sweeteners? Well, these products can have a place in your healthy diet with the right advice. We give you detailed guides on which artificial sweeteners can fit into your healthy lifestyle and which ones to avoid.
- Inflammatory Foods. We show you which foods increase inflammation and which ones decrease it. What you eat matters! Inflammation causes so many health issues, including joint pain and skin conditions. Simply changing what you eat, reduces pain, increases energy and improves your skin. You will be radiant both on the inside and the outside!
- Eating out can be a challenge, right? WRONG. Eating out is easy when you know what and where to eat. We give you our quick guide to eating out.
- Keep it simple. We give you a framework to build upon, so you can continue to eat this way forever. We have a set of simple rules
Module 2 - Happy Healthy Metabolic Hormones
- Losing weight is just diet and exercise, right WRONG. We debunk the old myths around calorie counting and why you need to stop calorie restriction if you want permanent weight loss...
- We expose the myths on eating fat. How much should you eat?... Can you eat too much?.... “I don’t have a gallbladder”...“What about my cholesterol?”- We go through all of these things and explain how to lose weight consistently and safely.
- What will my doctor say? We guide you through any questions you have about medication, blood tests and even have a letter you can take to your doctor if you want to…
- The Golden Rules that make decisions easy. This is the foundation and getting this right is imperative for success. This is not a quick fix but a long term solution to your weight problem so you can be rid of it once and for all!
- The Transition Period is where most women make their biggest mistakes. We guide you through this so you know what to expect, and how to navigate it. We want you to succeed and we have pre-empted any trouble spots with a roadmap to steer you through.
Module 3 - A Weight Off Your Mind
- Mind magic. “I eat everything I want - I just changed what I want.” This module shows you how to utilise the power of your mind, so you need never rely on willpower again.

- Behaviour change is the key to long term weight loss. We show you how to change your thoughts which ultimately changes your behaviour, not just for now but forever so you will never regain this weight again.
- Comfort eating is something most women confess to. We show you how to change this so you will never cry into your ice cream again. Freedom from food is so liberating. We have food freedom and so can you….
- Stop the cycle. So many women eat because they feel bad, then beat themselves up, feel worse and so eat again. This is not your fault! We explain all this to you, in detail - so you can finally understand what’s going on with your mind... And you certainly won’t get that from a diet shake...
