Changing Habits

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.

Changing Lives

Changing Habits began with the publication of Changing Habits Changing Lives by Cyndi O’Meara in 1998.  However, Cyndi has been studying and researching nutrition, diet and health issues and has spent much of her time speaking both nationally and internationally since 1980.

In 2010 Cyndi and her husband Howard expanded Changing Habits to not only be an information company supplying books, audios, videos, e-books, programs, protocols, reports, newsletters, clubs and social media but ALSO ethical, nutritious foods.  Howard and Cyndi saw that there was a need, to not only provide information but to also make the food Cyndi talks about more readily available to everyone. 
Changing Habits is passionately committed to improving the lives of men, women and children by providing their customers with high quality, ethical foods. Their goal is to improve the lives of generations and make a significant and lasting impact in the health industry.

Changing Habits will not bring out a food unless it has been thoroughly researched. Both Howard and Cyndi go to the country of origin, see where the food is grown and packaged before it becomes part of the Changing Habits food line.  Cyndi has many foods in the pipeline and every year new foods are introduced to the line.

About Changing Habits

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.


Lifestyle Coach

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.
