Leading with Logic, Teaching with Love

Andrew Taylor
Mentor, Science Nerd and Big Softie

I’m about helping you learn to feel your emotions fully, without letting them control you.

I’m about showing you how to find comfort and joy through logic and simplicity.

I’m about teaching you how to learn from your past and to let evidence and experience drive you forward.

I’m about holding your hand as you take massive positive action.

I’m about talking you through tough situations so you’ll come out the other side feeling strong and powerful.

I’m about calming your nerves as you take that first leap of faith.

I’ll be celebrating with you as you realise that the weight you’ve lost isn’t even the best bit.

I’ll be high-fiving you after your first run in years.

I’ll be cheering the loudest when you write to tell me that your doctor has taken you off medications you thought you'd be on for life.

I’ll shed a tear as the real you is finally revealed and inspires change in your loved ones.

I am only interested in rigorously tested, evidence-based nutrition science.

I am happy to explain to you as many times and in as many ways you need to hear it that there is nothing wrong with you, that you are not broken.

I’m about that feeling of contentment that comes with knowing youre on the right path.

Armed with a degree in Applied Science (Human Movement) and a fascination with all things nutrition-related, the former high school physical education/health teacher spent six weeks researching ‘the perfect food’ before he settled on the humble spud – just in time to begin a whole year break from thinking about food on New Year’s Day, 2016.

With the media frenzy that followed his 'Spud Fit Challenge' story came the opportunity to help thousands of other food addicts deal with their own food psychology issues while losing weight and getting healthier along the way.

Andrew’s first short book, 'The D.I.Y. Spud Fit Challenge' : a how-to guide to tackling food addiction with the humble spud’ was co-authored by his wife Mandy van Zanen and has helped many people to break the shackles of food addiction.

Andrew now spends his time coaching others through food addiction through 'The Spud Fit Challenge' community, speaking, making Youtube videos and interviewing groundbreakers such as Rich Roll, James Aspey, Doug Lisle and Alan Goldhamer for his podcast. He has also just released his second book.

Professional Bio

Andrew Taylor’s story went viral when the world caught wind of the then-36 year old Aussie dad who had embarked upon a quest to eat only potatoes for the entirety of 2016.

But to assume – as most did, at first – that this was some clown doing something crazy and unhealthy on a whim for 15 minutes of fame, was to miss both the perfect logic of the experiment itself, and the exceedingly powerful and timely message Andrew brings. Hint: it’s not about the potatoes.

In late 2015, the former junior Australian Champion marathon kayaker was in the depths of despair after yet another failed attempt in a lifetime of dieting that had left him even heavier than before – 151.7kg.

From his black hole of clinical anxiety and depression, desperate to be the man he hoped his young son could look up to, he had an epiphany: he was a food addict.

Logically then, to Andrew, who thinks outside the square, he should treat his food addiction the same way you would treat any other addiction: through abstinence – or as close to it as you can get.

Armed with a degree in Applied Science (Human Movement) and a fascination with all things nutrition-related, the former high school physical education/health teacher spent six weeks researching ‘the perfect food’ before he settled on the humble spud – just in time to begin a whole year break from thinking about food on New Year’s Day, 2016.

With the media frenzy that followed his 'Spud Fit Challenge' story came the opportunity to help thousands of other food addicts deal with their own food psychology issues while losing weight and getting healthier along the way.

Andrew’s first short book, 'The D.I.Y. Spud Fit Challenge' : a how-to guide to tackling food addiction with the humble spud’ was co-authored by his wife Mandy van Zanen and has helped many people to break the shackles of food addiction. His second book, ‘Spud Fit: A whole food, potato-based guide to eating and living’ is a collaborative effort between him and over 90 contributors, many of them giants in plant-based nutrition science from around the globe.

Andrew now spends his time coaching others through food addiction through his courses, informal and informative Youtube videos, his blog and his steadily expanding Spud Fit community, along with Mandy. He is also a sought-after speaker and natural interviewer, hosting groundbreakers such as Rich Roll, James Aspey, Doug Lisle and Alan Goldhamer for his podcast. 

In his spare time, Andrew doesn’t have spare time - he instead wrangles his two young sons. One day he hopes to be able to have a minute to think in peace so that he can think about what he might like to do with that peace.

If you're struggling with your relationship with food, with your weight, with lifestyle-induced poor health, I think I can help.
