Listen to episode 98:
"Sugar used to be such a big part of my identity": Dr. Lucy
November 27, 2022
Dr. Lucy Burns used to identify as (in her words) a sweet tooth, a chocoholic, and a lollytarian!
Her whole life revolved around getting sugar in some form.
Sugar was such a big part of her identity that she wasn't aware of her dependence on it.
And because all that sugar made her gain weight, she also went on diets.
As a doctor, she was always caring for others... and she turned to reward eating because she worked so hard.
And in the medical world, that lack of self-care was normalized, so it continued.
She couldn't imagine getting comfort, joy, and reward anywhere else.
But she was also sick of feeling like rubbish.
So she decided to do an experiment on herself to cut sugar out of her life... and she gives some practical tips for how you can get rid of sugar too in this episode.
Dr. Lucy talks about evening snacking, nighttime eating , tools to implement the knowledge you have, understanding your brain, and changing your habits.
Now Dr. Lucy runs an online "lifestyle medicine" clinic out of Australia, where she helps people feel their best with the least medication possible.
