Dr Lucy Burns is a GP based on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. Dr Lucy's past experience running a medical weight loss clinic was the inspiration behind creating an online learning platform embracing and teaching low carb real food lifestyle and mindset change.
As a young adult, Dr Lucy focussed on exercise to control and manage her own weight and health. This was not sustainable and ignoring her nutrition and psychological health, as well as declining mobility due to her muscular dystrophy, meant at 50 she was overweight/obese and insulin resistant.
In 2018, Dr Lucy lost 20 kgs (44 lbs) by adopting a low carb real food lifestyle, and more importantly has maintained both the weight loss and changes in mindset.
Dr Lucy is known for her positive can-do nature and is an eternal optimist. She practices meditation daily (well at least second daily).
Dr Lucy speaks about weight management and the low carb real food lifestyle at conferences for medical professionals, as well as events for the general public. Dr Lucy is a mum to two kidults who are still happily living in the family home.
Dr Mary Barson is a GP based on the Victorian Surf Coast. She is an absolute genius and has an honours degree in biochemistry, as well as a medical degree. Dr Mary understands all things “sciencey”. She is our go-to person for interpreting scientific research, and can separate out true science from popular “woo”.
Dr Mary marries this with her skills as a counsellor and hypnotherapist, and has a huge interest in lifestyle medicine. She practices compassion-based therapy.
Mary has polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) and understands how difficult this can be for many women. She has found that lifestyle intervention is an important part of managing PCOS. Low carbohydrate dietary interventions are an evidence based way to safely treat PCOS and can improve all symptoms, including markers of fertility.
Dr Mary is a mum to two wonderful children, she loves public speaking and has the most infectious, heart-warming laugh.
