It's hard to get where you want to go if you've been given the wrong directions.

The current way of losing weight with calorie counting and restriction not only gives you the wrong directions, it gives you the wrong map! It provides you with the map to yo-yo dieting land.

Both Dr Lucy and Dr Mary had the map to yo-yo dieting land for many years. 10kg on, 10kg off, then 15kgs on and 12kgs off. You know how the story goes. 

At Real Life Medicine we will show you the right way to lose weight, gain health and get off the dieting rollercoaster.

We've helped hundreds of women and men to lose weight with kindness and compassion, free of guilt and shame. 

Losing weight is about gaining health, not a number on the scales. You are worth so much more than that!

It's time people. Learn how to unlock your woodshed and reclaim your health and your life!
