088: Diet Culture and How to Develop Healthy Habits that Last with Matty Lansdown

In this episode of Saving With Steve, host Steve Sexton is joined by Matty Lansdown, an in-demand nutritionist, scientist, podcast host, and health coach that specializes in weight loss and self-confidence for professional women and busy moms.

My guest, Matty Lansdown, uses his knowledge and expertise in psychology and nutrition to facilitate transformational health stories by helping women answer the question, "Why cant I just eat healthy?" Through his programs Matty supports women to lose weight, get their energy and sex drive back, and be kinder to themselves.

He joins us today to discuss why diet culture causes more problems than it cures, the psychology of being healthy, and how to develop healthy habits that last. Matty also shares tips and insight on low carb nutrition for weight loss, how intermittent fasting is different for women and how it can help your health, what emotional eating is and how you can stop, and how to get off the yo-yo diet rollercoaster. Lastly, he dives into why diet changes can be so hard to implement, why rates of obesity and disease are so high, and how people can sustainably lose weight.

Matty Lansdown is a scientist, nutritionist, and Emotional Eating and Self Sabotage coach that specializes in binge eating, weight loss, and self confidence for women and busy mothers.

Starting out in the field of nutritional epigenetics and spending many years working in hospitals as part of a disease research team, Matty developed the core belief that the vast majority of disease and illness is not due to bad luck or genetic predisposition, but is a result of poor nutrition and lifestyle choices, that for most people lead to weight gain, low self worth, and self sabotaging behavior patterns.

After working with hundreds of clients and speaking to thousands of people at retreats, conferences, and summits, Matty uncovered the real challenge people have when it comes to being healthy, which isn’t about calories or kale, but in fact mindset and behavior change.

Having been on his own personal development journey and changing the trajectory of his own life, Matty is now super-passionate about showing people how to level up their body and their mind so that healthy habits and the right food choices are easy and natural.

Matty has also been invited to deliver lectures and seminars on a range of topics including Intermittent Fasting, Diet and Disease, High-End Nutrition, Mindset, Belief and behavior change, stress management, and sleep optimization, including several appearances at Sydney Convention Centre and Ultimate Business Detox. He is regularly invited to international retreats, summits, and conferences as a coach, panelist, and speaker.

In addition to this, Matty hosts a weekly podcast called “How to NOT Get Sick and Die," where he delivers free weekly insights in relation to current developments in the world of health, nutrition, and human optimization, offering the latest advice on how your diet and lifestyle can directly affect your energy, focus, self-confidence, and overall wellbeing.
