#32: Creating Lasting Habits with Dr Heather McKee

23 Sep 2019

Today on the podcast I talk with Dr Heather McKee who is the UK’s leading lifestyle behaviour change specialist, consultant and founder of drheathermckee.co.uk

Having studied health behaviour change and weight loss psychology for 10 years her mission is to offer an evidence-based sustainable alternative to an industry saturated with quick fixes and health fads.

Her passion is in translating evidence-based techniques into real-life practices to help people build the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to create lasting and enjoyable healthy habits

Today we talked about:

  • How we navigate the modern landscape
  • Finding out what your joy is and what sparks joy in your life
  • Tailoring our environment to help us become more successful in our goals
  • Kindness - being kind to ourselves and each other
  • Controversy around psychology and weight loss


There is A LOT of evidence based, safe dietary and lifestyle change that we as practitioners can be confidently discussing with our patients.  Listen to the end for a summary of our discussion and how to improve your overall wellbeing.
