Cyndi O'Meara

Founder and Nutritionist
Not your typical nutritionist, Cyndi disagrees with low-fat, low-calorie diets, believes chocolate can be good for you and thinks cheating and eating yummy food is an important part of a well-balanced diet. Cyndi must be doing something right because she maintains a healthy weight and has never (in her whole life!) taken an antibiotic, pain-killer or any other form of medication. Cyndi is a passionate, determined and knowledgeable speaker on health issues and uses her education and experience to help others improve their quality of life so they too can enjoy greater health and longer lives.

Concerned by the state of our health system and the lack of educated consumers, Cyndi explores relevant and confronting issues such as cancer, diseases, diets, drugs and medication and asks people to make a choice about what they are willing to consume. She raises serious questions such as ‘Is margarine really the answer or is it a major contributor to obesity, cancer, diabetes and heart disease? Are artificial sweeteners the great low calorie alternative or deadly neurotoxins?'

Her unique, surprisingly simple and down-to-earth approach challenges and encourages others to eliminate unhealthy habits and has inspired thousands to make smarter choices about the food they choose to put into their body. By educating people on how to read food labels, why diets don’t work, and how drugs can affect your total well-being and vitality, Cyndi confronts her audiences with new truths and empowers them to make long lasting changes with simple and achievable steps on how to create healthier habits.

Her qualifications include a Bachelor of Science degree majoring in Nutrition from Deakin University in Victoria and the University of Colorado in Boulder, Colorado. Cyndi also undertook postgraduate studies from RMIT Victoria in human anatomy, pathology, physiology and diplomas in diagnosis and management of health issues.

A highly successful and award-winning businesswomen, Cyndi was named Sunshine Coast Business Women of the Year in 2003. In every aspect of her life, she looks outside coventional thinking to find new ways of balancing her time with family, business and good health to create a wonderful, balanced lifestyle.

A lively and inspiring health expert and lifestyle coach, Cyndi O’Meara has regularly appeared on national talk-back radio to educate listeners on how to overcome health problems and lead a happy, healthy, high-energy lifestyle.

Since the success of her two bestselling books 'Changing Habits, Changing Lives' and its accompaniment 'Changing Habits, Changing Lives Cookbook', Cyndi is in high demand both nationally and internationally as a keynote speaker. She conducts speeches bi-monthly on achieving health and lifestyle goals as part of her involvement in the holistic LIPS (Ladies Initiating Prosperity and Success) seminars for women.

Interview with Cyndi O'Meara & Jessica Ainscough

Jessica Ainscough is the founder of The Wellness Warrior – an online sanctuary of health and inspiration where she writes about her journey from cancer patient to healing junkie. After being diagnosed with a rare form of cancer back in 2008, Jess left her job as the online editor for Dolly magazine and set out on a mission to heal herself. She refused her doctor’s advice to have her left arm amputated at the shoulder (the site of the cancer), began looking at the ways she may have contributed to the manifestation of her disease and then stopped doing them. She swapped a lifestyle of champagne, cocktails and late-night Lean Cuisines for carrot juice, coffee enemas and meditation and became an active participant in her treatment.

Jess is currently one year into the Gerson Therapy – a strict cancer-fighting program that consists of 13 fresh organic veggie juices per day, at least three coffee enemas per day and a strict organic whole food plant-based diet.

She also went back to school, studying at the Institute for Integrative Nutrition in New York, to learn everything possible about wellness so that she could truly heal herself and work as a holistic health coach to enable others to achieve their wellness goals.

Globally, women are responding with applause and greatful appreciation.

Through her own personal journey of reclaiming her health, she has been inspired to share with other women ways they too can reclaim their own health by gaining a deeper appreciation of their bodies natural cycles and their innate wisdom.

Interview with Cyndi O'Meara & ABC Radio on the 4 Phase Fat Elimination Protocol

Cyndi O'Meara learnt about a 60 year old program in  July 2011 that could eliminate the third fat - stored fat, while keeping your structural fat in place.   

In other words, get rid of the fat that doesn't make you look good and creates ill health and keep the fat that makes you look younger.  Could such a thing be possible? Mary-Lou asked the lady who once 'loved fats' why the change?
