147: Dr Helena Popovic - NeuroSlimming

Dr Helena Popovic

 Dr Helena Popovic is an Australian medical practitioner who shows people how to live longer, stronger, healthier and happier through education rather than medication.

She’s a leading authority on improving brain function and is unique in bringing the latest discoveries in brain science to weight management. She graduated from the University of Sydney and is the author of the best-selling book: ‘NeuroSlimming – Let your brain change your body’. ‘NeuroSlimming’ won Bronze medal in the international Living Now Awards. Her book was honoured for its contribution to positive global change in the health and wellness category. ‘NeuroSlimming’ enables anyone to overcome self-sabotaging behaviours and shed excess body fat through a Mind Plan, rather than a meal plan.

She enables people to:

Boost their brain

Turn stress into success

Shed excess body fat without dieting or deprivation

Quotes by Dr Helena Popovic

“What I now realise is that I much prefer eating fat to sugar. Fat is much more flavoursome.

“I developed the missing piece in the weight loss puzzle.

“For 20 years I actually struggled with an eating disorder myself.

“Neuroslimming basically teaches people to feed their spirit not starve their body.

“80% of visits to the doctor are stress related in one or another.

“People just do not understand just how toxic ultra processed food it.

“Every 1% in our consumption of ultra processed food, as a percentage of our daily calories, increases our risk of cancer by 1.2% and increases our risk of Type 2 Diabetes by 1.5%.

“What is a food? A food is something that leads to growth, repair, nourishment and healing.

“We really need to be telling ourselves that whatever I am eating is nourishing not punishing.

“Start asking questions rather than making statements.

“Get into the habit everyday of giving yourself a clap not a slap.

“Our beliefs have a physical effect on our body.

“Don’t adopt an identity that doesn’t serve you.

“I am not going to give you a quick fix because it’s not going to work.

“There is a price to pay for all medications regardless of how lifesaving they might be.

“We are taught to manage medical issues with drugs, radiation or surgery. We are not taught anything else as doctors.

“If I told people taking any other drug for any other condition – these are the side effects – they would say “No way, I am not putting up with that” but because it is a weight loss drug “I will put up with anything”

“There is no condition that I am aware of in medicine where we want to increase your heart rate.

“Our brain evolved to associate sweetness with calories.

“Once we remove sugar from our diet, our sugar cravings actually disappear.

“Life is actually sweeter without sugar.
