Live Fit Podcast

00:00 / 1:11:00

Sweet PoisonDavid Gillespie is a recovering corporate lawyer, former co-founder of a successful software company and investor in several software startups.

He is also the father of six young children (including one set of twins). With such a lot of extra time on his hands, and 40 extra kilos on his waistline, he set out to investigate why he, like so many in his generation, was fat.

He deciphered the latest medical findings on diet and weight gain and what he found was chilling. Being fat was the least of his problems. He needed to stop poisoning himself.

His first book, Sweet Poison, published in 2008 is widely credited with starting the current Australian wave of anti-sugar sentiment.  His most recent book, Toxic Oil, takes the arguments in Sweet Poison and extends them to the widespread use of seed oils in the modern diet.
In this episode he explains why sugar makes us fat and how you can eliminate the type of sugar that makes people fat, damages their body and shortens their life.
He says he and his family are all sugar free and have been for quite awhile. They eat sweets and enjoy life. They have friends and go to parties. But, when they eat something sweet, they are not damaging their health.
The author of 10 books, including:
  • Sweet Poison: Why sugar makes us fat
  • The Sweet Poison Quit Plan: How to kick the sugar habit and lose weight *
  • The Sweet Poison Quit Plan Cookbook
  • Toxic Oil: Why vegetable oil will kill you and how to save yourself
  • Big Fat Lies: Sick, Fat, & Poor
  • Sugar Free Shopper’s Guide (for many countries)
  • No Sugar Recipe Book
  • Eat Real Food Cookbook
