• Always telling people to quit sugar? Now you can get paid for it… Hey, you’re probably one of those people who tells their mates and family about the I Quit Sugar 8-Week Program rather a lot. Maybe you’re a personal trainer or nutritionist and recommend it to your clients? And perhaps you’ve thought, “I should be getting commission for this!”. We’ve thought the same and my crew over more
  • Dear Sugar Research Advisory Service My mate David Gillespie pointed me to this video yesterday (the clip is below), in which advertising strategy expert Carolyn Miller (of TV show Gruen fame) provides marketing advice at The Sugar Conundrum Workshop, put on by The Sugar Research Advisory Service last year to dieticians. Yes, you read right. Dieticians. Miller uses me as an example more
  • My 7 favourite ways to use turmeric Look, I’m aware turmeric is fast becoming the new kale, that is, an over-hyped “superfood”. I guess, though, unlike kale, turmeric has some unique health properties grounded in a long history of healing cooking (nothing against kale, but it doesn’t really stand apart substantially on any front from good old silverbeet). I use a fair more
  • “Clean Eating is a Myth”…and 5 other things I got right Almost six years ago I quit sugar. I coped flack for this. Did I what. When it came around to publishing my first book I Quit Sugar I ran the below Arthur Schopenhauer quote upfront, by way of highlighting where I thought the whole debate just had to head. Eventually. Someone referred to this quote at more
  • The Cheapest Stew Ever – $1.70 per serve! A healthy and wholesome meal for $1.70? Yep, I’m serious. This recipe from my latest book I Quit Sugar: Simplicious is literally the cheapest stew ever made. And with a few tweaks in can be turned into a healing autoimmune stew – my go-to fix on days when my Hashimoto’s is playing up. This stew more
  • Time for me to get really real with you about the sugar tax I’m going to start this post by saying hats off to Big Soda…they sure do a fine job of spreading misinformation. Last week the I Quit Sugar team and I launched a huge campaign for an Australian sugar tax on sugar soft drinks. Click to sign now if you like. Jamie Oliver did similar in the more
  • Why the one Simplicious book, three covers around the world? I like to clear up confusion. My latest book I Quit Sugar: Simplicious is now available around the world. But there are currently three different covers. And two different titles? The thing is this. Some territories like to create their own covers that suit their market segment. I designed my Australian cover. Here it is. Actually, more
  • There’s this excellent thing happening to young boys… Lately, I’ve had a stack of correspondence from young men. When I say young, I mean pre- and early-teen. It makes my day every time. Not least because I know what it takes for a boy to approach an old battleaxe like me. I’d be petrified! There’s been Jacob Towers who travelled with his Mum more
  • How I build my breakfast On my travels, I think I’m asked at every turn, by journalists or at public talks I give, what I eat for breakfast. I think it’s mostly because much of the planet can’t fathom a breakfast without sugar. The first thing I flag: drop the idea that breakfast should be sweet. Until the 1950s, when breakfast more
