    Dr. Gina Cleo – The Neuroscience Of Habits

    Dr. Gina Cleo – The Neuroscience Of Habits

    Habits are the invisible blueprint of our lives, and changing our habits is the only way we can reach our goals long-term. But changing habits can be hard, and many people struggle to create healthier habits and/or break less-than-healthy ones. In our first ever repeat guest interview, habits guru Dr. Gina Cleo shares some powerful insights from the field of neuroscience, and her inspiring personal journey, to help you create healthier habits that last for life.

    In this vulnerable and at times emotional interview, Gina and I discuss:

    ✔️ Why habits are important (hint, if you have ANY goal, they are vital!)

    ✔️ Unpacking a real client story of habit change

    ✔️ The neuropsychology of habits (a deep dive into dopamine!)

    ✔️ The most common habits people want to break (and how to break them!)

    ✔️ How curiosity and mindfulness can rewire our brains

    ✔️ Gina’s personal story of rewiring her brain to overcome trauma

    ✔️ The exciting work Gina and I are doing with my online community members!

    The BMI Lie (podcast from Thinsanity Audiobook)

    The BMI Lie (podcast from Thinsanity Audiobook)

    In this special excerpt from the Thinsanity audiobook, I share the surprising truth about the Body Mass Index, from its unexpected origins to its unethical manipulation by big business to turn a profit. I then explore a re-interpretation of BMI categories based on actual science (not paid-for/company sponsored science), and the possibility that we’re all (finally) ready to be free of it …

    Dr. Gina Cleo - Creating Healthy Habits

    Dr. Gina Cleo - Creating Healthy Habits

    Research suggests that half of everything we do is habitual. But most attempts to improve our health actually focus on changing behaviours rather than habits, meaning we still need to consciously use effort and willpower in order to continue our improvements into the long-term. Our next guest has identified this huge problem and made it her life’s work to research some amazingly simple ways to create healthy habits that last for life.

    In this playful and lively interview, Australia’s only full-time habits researcher Dr Gina Cleo and I discuss:

    - The difference between behaviours and habits.

    - Setting the record straight on how long it takes to create a habit.

    - Gina likes variety, Glenn likes routine (and what this means for you!)

    - You only need motivation to get started (habits keep you going!)

    - Changing habits WITHOUT a diet or exercise plan (no yo-yo!)

    - How habit change is NOT sexy, but it IS life-changing.

    - Creating micro-habits to re-wire the brain’s pathways.

    - Breaking habits through ‘restructuring’ and ‘reprogramming’.

    - How to make new habits that are as rewarding as old habits!


    Due to a change in direction, Gina no longer supports the Sum Sanos program. Thankfully, she whole-heartedly endorses our new-and-improved Transformation Support Community!
    Thankfully, Gina has now developed a 12-Week Creating Healthy Habits Series especially for our Transformation Support Community Online Program (available now!).

    Lyndi Cohen – From Shame to Fame - A personal story of non-dieting

    Lyndi Cohen – From Shame to Fame - A personal story of non-dieting

    Do you like the sound of body positivity and intuitive eating, but struggle to make them work for you in real life? Living in a crazy culture of weight obsession makes it pretty hard. But today’s guest has overcome her own personal struggles with food and her body, and made it her life’s mission to help others do the same.

    In this heartwarming interview, leading non-diet and Today show dietitian Lyndi Cohen and I discuss: 

    - Lyndi’s personal story of dieting since before age 11.

    - How Lyndi did the OPPOSITE of what she was taught as a dietitian.

    - Moving from “control” to “choice”.

    - The importance of enjoyment (using salad dressing as an example!)

    - How Lyndi invests in mental health and manages anxiety.

    - Why Lyndi and I both see psychologists.

    - Balancing body positivity and the desire to lose weight.

    - Lyndi’s 20 kilogram weight loss (the part people don’t focus on).

    - Using your high willpower self to support your low willpower self.

    - Stamp collecting healthy habits and the power of imperfect action!

    - The important difference between a meal plan and meal planning.

    - How-tos and troubleshooting (Q&A from my Facebook Group). 

    - Creating a health-supportive environment (without restricting).

    - Dealing with afternoon snacking and overeating when stressed.

    - Differentiating habit cravings from “want it” cravings.

    - Lyndi’s advice on “losing stubborn body fat” (client question).

    - The “building a bridge” metaphor of health change (I love this!)

    - Lyndi’s advice for dealing with weight comments and body bullies.
