Meet Dr Lucy Burns

Dr Lucy Burns

Australia-based Dr. Lucy Burns is a general practice and lifestyle medicine physician who helps women in midlife to rebalance their mind and body through low carb, real food programs. 

At her clinic Real Life Medicine, through her online business Real Life Medicine, and on her podcast Real Health and Weight Loss, Dr. Lucy helps women unlearn toxic diet culture and tap into the psychological and physiological science that promotes long-lasting health and permanent weight loss. 

In 2018, Lucy began her own shift to a low-carb, real food lifestyle, which ultimately resulted in 20kgs lost. For years, muscular dystrophy had impaired her movement making it impossible to use exercise for weight management, and she had become insulin resistant.

While weight loss was part of her journey, she likes to refer to it as the “side effect” of getting her mindset right and her hormones balanced. 

Since then, Lucy has helped hundreds of women on a mission to low-carb eating through real, whole foods with her 12-Week Mind Body Rebalance program. 

Her formula for weight loss is:

95% mindset management

4 % food. 

1 % movement. 

She firmly leads with the idea that when your mind is right, your body is right.

      Hi Donna, I found my conversation with Dr Lucy although her formula would be different to mine regarding the amount of exercise required. x
