Hi, I'm Dr Lucy Burns, and here's what I'd like to share with you...
Join us for a wonderful transformative experience with Real Life Medicine small group coaching
Are you looking to
➔ Lose weight?
➔ Reduce medications?
➔ Reclaim your health?
If you answered YES, then we are so glad you're here!
We are Dr Lucy Burns and Dr Mary Barson, experienced medical doctors and weight loss experts based in Australia.
We have both been overweight, metabolically unwell, and felt helpless and unable to shift our excess weight. We have both lost and gained weight over years and years of the dieting cycle, but we are pleased to say that between us we have lost 30 kgs (66 lbs), and most importantly, kept it off.
We achieved this by discovering the power of eating low carb, real food, and truly understanding the science of weight loss.
Together, we founded Real Life Medicine to share our knowledge and live our passion of helping people lose weight and reclaim their health. We utilise a low carb, real food approach, whilst addressing both the physiology (hormonal causes) and the psychology (mindset) of weight loss. This is done with kindness and compassion, free of guilt and shame.
So what is small group coaching?
It is exactly as it sounds. It is regular meetings with a health expert experienced in coaching.
Small group coaching bridges the gap between private coaching and larger coaching programs
Coaching is for people who know what they want to do but need help with the implementation.
The benefits of small group coaching include
- Increased accountability
- Understanding your mindset blocks
- An intimate group to share your wins and troubleshoot any speed humps
- Ongoing reinforcement and consolidation of knowledge
* ALL GOOD PROGRAMS FOLLOW THE 3 C'S *
In this 6 month transformation, we give you the content to understand the physiology. You get "The Doctor's Complet Guide to Low Carb Living", a self paced 4 week course that explains everything you need to do
You will join a live coaching call over zoom each fortnight for 24 weeks. Group coaching is a wonderful tool where you learn from each other. You can have your questions answered, myths busted, and mindset addressed They will be recorded of you miss any.
Behavioural change can be hard, but it's always easier when you have a supportive circle cheering you on, and celebrating every win with you! Small Group Coaching gives you that support.
You will be doing this for yourself, but not by yourself!
Want to know why most of the diets you've probably already tried DIDN'T work?
We know traditional diets don't work because:
➔ Calorie restriction and calorie counting does not work for sustainable weight loss, and it reduces your metabolism and leaves you hungry. It's impossible to lose weight permanently if you're hungry, as hunger trumps willpower every single time.
➔ Fat storage is caused by a metabolic hormonal balance. Specifically, high insulin. Most diets fail to balance your metabolic hormones, which is the true cause of fat storage and retention.
➔ They fail to address the psychology of weight loss, which is an absolutely critical element. By neglecting to fix the psychological barriers to weight loss that exist, they prevent your success.
Our programs address the physiology and psychology:
➔ A low carb, real food diet heals the metabolic cause of weight gain, and allows for sustainable weight loss without hunger. You do not need to count calories when you eat low carb, real food, and your metabolism will stay healthy and fired up.
➔ We empower you with the knowledge you need to balance your metabolic hormones. We show you the right type of food and the proper timing of your meals, so you can unlock that stored fat and start burning it.
➔ We show you how to harness the power of your mind and avoid the pitfalls of self-sabotage, to keep you on the path to real health and permanent weight loss.
And what about the 3 common myths that
will keep you from losing weight?
In order to lose weight, you have to feel hungry
When you eat with our recommended eating style, not only will you lose weight, we can guarantee that you will not be hungry. It's so much easier to lose weight when you are not hungry!
Losing weight is just diet and exercise
We debunk the old myths around calorie counting and why you need to stop calorie restriction if you want permanent weight loss. Whilst we encourage you to exercise as a healthy pastime, it is not necessary or crucial in order to lose weight.
If you want to lose fat, you can't eat fat
Healthy fats are an essential part of our diet and should not be feared. With our healthy low carbohydrate lifestyle, you can enjoy healthy fats as a delicious and filling part of your nutrition. So guess what? This is not a diet plan where all you get to eat is lettuce and carrot!
Imagine what it will feel like:
- With improved health and your habit changes are consolidated.
- To be in control of your food instead of helplessly eating junk food every night on the couch.
- To have more energy and an improved sense of well-being.
- To improve your health and reverse chronic disease.
- to potentially reduce or even eliminate medications
- to no longer feel tired
- to have all the vitality you need to live your life
