• Here’s a mini Simplicious Flow book…for free. Hey, my publisher and I have made this little flippy cookbook for you guys. It allows you to check out a bunch of Simplicious Flow recipes and get the general vibe of the book, for nada. You’ll see the sheet of baking paper I used for the whole book (I then use it as a more
  • Good news: you can still buy I Quit Sugar Gelatin I decided to produce this stuff a few years back, because, well, it made sense to. The good quality gelatin – for making panacottas, gummies, etc and that comes with amazing gut healing and digestive-aiding properties – came from South America (via the USA). Why couldn’t we produce a version here using pasture-raised bones (that more
  • Hey, what’s the deal with the No Added Sugar range? Hi Everyone, I write to you today to clear up some confusion. I’ve been asked across different forums (and in the street!) over the past few months about a supermarket range called No Added Sugar, with many of you thinking they are my products. The range includes a jar of rice malt syrup, a paleo more
  • Today IQuitSugar.com closes. Here’s what’s next. Dearest Everyone,   Today I close the business I built over many years, mostly in cahoots with you and the community. So I need to say a final thank you and share The Things You Need To Know.   I can’t pretend the success of IQuitSugar.com was all mine. I say this always – the prosperity more
  • A long letter about my business Dearest Community of Supporters Over the Past 7 Years, I have some big news and it’s important to me that I share it with you first. After a lot of careful thought and much heartache, I’ve decided to close IQuitSugar.com. As many of you know, the IQS journey started at a time in my life more
  • 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
  • “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
  • Can I drink alcohol when I quit sugar? Surely you can’t drink any alcohol when you quit sugar! It’s chockers full of the white stuff, right?! I have some good news for you – you absolutely can still enjoy a glass of wine at dinner. Or even a beer on the weekend. Because quitting sugar doesn’t mean quitting the things you enjoy! The 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

  • Why I’ve produced my own gelatin powder Good morning friends. This post serves two purposes. To announce that, yes, I’ve produced an I Quit Sugar gelatin powder – my Gut Lovin’ Gelatin.

  • Have an autoimmune disease? This Program will probably help. I quit sugar to manage my autoimmune disease. And after almost five years of being off the sweet stuff, I can say this: Quitting sugar had the biggest impact on my disease (Hashimotos) more so than any other medical “fix”. I have zero thyroid antibodies now, am on the minimum dosage of thyroxin and my hormone levels have more
  • My number one wellness secret (not what you expect!) I won’t keep you in suspense. I’m not a clickbait-y type. The answer I always give when asked for the most effective trick for being well is… to learn to cook. When you cook you get empowered and mindful. By necessity, you cut out processed food and all the guff Big Food foists upon us. more

  • The I Quit Sugar One-Pot Wonders Cookbook is here! Most of you know how much I love stretching out meals to make them more sustainable and cheap. I tend to bore my mates with the topic.

  • My fructose-free kombucha recipe In my first kombucha recipe, one of the concerns some of you had was the use of sugar to feed the yeast and bacteria. As I pointed out, very little sugar is left behind. But if you’re drinking a few nips of the stuff per day, it can add up to several teaspoons. So I gave more
  • Why the new 8-Week Program Meal Plans are the most nutrient dense yet With a new round of the 8-Week Program kicking off next week, I thought I’d address the common questions I receive in the lead up to each Program.

  • Can quitting artificial sweetener reverse autoimmune disease? There are many, many, and many more causes of autoimmune disease. And then, too, there are none. Ultimately no one can really pin point a root cause. It’s truly a clusterf*ck. There are factors, of course, that flare the condition. Like gluten, sugar and anxiety. But one I haven’t really covered before is fake sugar. more
  • The Ayurvedic reason you might be craving sugar I’ve shared on oodles of occasions how Ayurvedic healing is, in my opinion, the most grounded wellness approach around. You can catch up on my previous posts here and find out which dosha you are here. And if you’ve followed this blog for a while, you’ll know my dosha is, yeah, vata. I’m a poster child for more
  • I’ve been parodied. This post has been updated. It’s become quite a story. Read to the bottom. I was recently alerted to this Youtube clip by Kate McCartney and Kate McLennon – a two-chick comedy cooking spoof ensemble. It’s friggen funny. And only made more funnier for me because it squarely takes the piss out of me, without more
