About the guest:

Dr Lucy is passionate about health. She helps women who have tried every diet under the sun optimise their health and achieve long lasting weight loss by improving metabolism and managing  mindset so they can reduce the effects of chronic disease, have more energy and confidence and stop living life on the sidelines. 

She was an “expert yo-yo dieter” and was completely and utterly addicted to sugar. She developed obesity, fatty liver and pre-diabetes. She has completely abandoned traditional dieting and embraces a real food lifestyle. She has lost 20kg (45 pounds) and maintained this for over 5 years.

Dr Lucy graduated from Medical School at Monash University in 1993. After having her own weight loss epiphany she became a certified Lifestyle Medicine Physician and a clinical hypnotherapist. She is a sought-after public speaker and has spoken at multiple medical conferences on the management of obesity and weight loss.

Dr Lucy ran a busy weight loss clinic in Melbourne. The clinic was booked out for months. So she transitioned to the online space with her colleague Dr Mary Barson. Together, they formed Real Life Medicine. They run successful online holistic health and weight loss programs that help women lose weight without toxic dieting.  Dr Lucy believes passionately in helping people untangle their relationship with food and has a wonderful knack for storytelling and using analogies to explain complicated medical and behavioural science.

She is a staunch believer in self-compassion as a driver of behavioural change

“You cannot hate yourself thin and you cannot berate yourself well”.

Dr Lucy lives on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria, Australia with her husband and 2 daughters. They have a small acreage with 3 horses, a miniature cow, a goat, 4 dogs, 3 cats, 3 frogs, and a bearded dragon.

Life is fun!
