Change your relationship with food
and transform your whole life.

Weighing, measuring, tracking, portion control, deprivation, mindful eating...none of these popular weight loss tools work in the long term because they only ever address the symptoms of weight gain, not the actual problem: your relationship with food.

I ate ONLY potatoes for all of 2016. Just potatoes, every meal, every day, for 366 days straight. That’s right, I did it on a leap year to be extra hard core! I ate all the potatoes I wanted every day, usually baked, boiled or mashed. Even for breakfast. No other fruit or veg, including greens.

I know that this seems super weird.

I totally get why - at first, anyway - the experts assumed it was a fad.

I completely understand the people who suggested I was 'doing something crazy' for 15 minutes of fame (though if you watch my first 'journal entry' on Youtube, you’ll understand why attention was the last thing I was looking for).



None of that matters though, for two reasons.

Slide Before After

Slide Before After

First, I lost 55kg (121 pounds) - and I’ve kept that weight off for over three years now, eating an enormous range of real, whole foods - as much as I want.

My physical health - closely monitored by my doctor who is also a registered dietician - bounced back beyond anything I dared to imagine and I gained energy by the truckload. Most importantly, I came back from the mental black hole I had been in for years.

Second: Results are typical.

Through what became known as the 'Spud Fit Challenge', I’ve now helped thousands of people turn their health and lives around via my online courses and support groups, books and individual coaching. I’ll never get tired of hearing from people who’ve had to go shopping for a whole new - much smaller! - wardrobe, who have reversed their diabetes, whose shocked doctors have taken them off their hypertension meds. I even have a happy dance for when people write to tell me (subtly!) that their digestive system is 'working properly' for the first in years - sometimes for the first time ever. 

Because this is not and never was a 'fad'. It WAS an extremely well-researched and carefully designed short-term personal experiment, designed to completely reset my relationship with food.

To give me a clean slate. To give me a god-damn break from overthinking every mouthful of food before it passed my lips and from the guilt and shame that came afterwards too.

It IS based on well-established, peer-reviewed science - hundreds of books and studies - by absolute giants in the fields of both nutrition and addiction. After decades of diligently following every conceivable mainstream and fringe diet out there and ultimately achieving nothing but more weight gain, less self-esteem and more misery, I can tell you that my potato mono-diet was actually the only logical course of action if I was ever to reclaim control of my own health.

You already know you’re better off eating an apple than a doughnut, yet all too often you choose the doughnut. Why?

The key to weight loss is in understanding why and how we make food choices so that we can begin to rely on logic rather than making emotion based decisions.

You don’t need willpower and you certainly do not need to be counting or tracking or measuring or even being more mindful of every mouthful.

You need a plan that's so ridiculously simple it's foolproof. Plug and play. Set and forget.

My health was never at risk eating potatoes for a year. Just the opposite. The real risk was to keep doing what I had always done, to keep following that well-worn path of standard diet advice that only ever tried to address the symptoms of the real problem: my relationship with food.

The Spud Fit Challenge is the jolt to the system you’ve been craving. It’s a mind bending course correction like no other.

What I learned about nutrition and addiction psychology during my Spud Fit Challenge should be common knowledge. This way of eating is simple, cheap and as nutritious as it gets - for the whole family. The science is solid, it's out there and it's accessible if you know to look for it. It is an absolute travesty competing interests direct you away from it and make you think that YOU are the problem.

I also think it's a crime that money can be an obstacle to good health. For that reason you can take the Spud Fit Challenge yourself, COMPLETELY FREE.

Slide I have been steadily losing weight. My inflammation and joint pain has disappeared,
and my doctor even lowered my thyroid medicine. My brain fog has lifted.
I no longer have high blood pressure or high cholesterol. I'm forever grateful!
Slide Three years ago I was 99kg and I’m just 160cm tall. I reached 60kg July 2019 and now I’m 52kg -
a total of 47kg gone and I turned 55. I love the mental freedom it gave me!
