The Spud Fit Cookbook

A Whole Food, Potato-Based Guide To Eating And Living

Spud Fit: A whole food, potato-based guide to eating and living is far more than just a book of meals – it is a primer for long term, successful and sustainable lifestyle change. With contributions from more than 80 of the world’s foremost leaders in the plant based movement, you’ll learn everything you need to know to take control of your relationship with food and your life. Gain boundless energy and health, look and feel younger – all while eating as much as you want!

In 2016 the story of Andrew’s quest to eat nothing but potatoes for the entire year went viral. Over the course of that year he regained his health, lost 55kgs (121lbs), cured his chronic depression and – most importantly – dealt with his lifelong debilitating addiction to food. He has since inspired countless others to take control of their health and their lives, all with help from the humble spud.

The Spud Fit Challenge was borne out of Andrew’s desire to remove addictive foods from his life once and for all; if an alcoholic should quit alcohol then maybe a food addict should quit food? He continues to avoid addictive foods by enjoying a wide variety of delicious, whole foods in all their forms, without any need to count calories, analyse portion size, measure or weigh food (or yourself!), restrict intake or overthink anything at all. The simplicity of this concept is key to the Spud Fit philosophy and forms the basis of this book.

The DIY Spud Fit Challenge

A How-to Guide to Tackling Food Addiction with the Humble Spud

Is 'quitting food' the key to losing over 110 pounds (50kgs) in eight months, beating clinical depression and anxiety and discovering the best mental and physical health of your life? For Andrew 'Spud Fit' Taylor, the Aussie father who embarked on a potato-only diet for the entirety of 2016, this has certainly been the case. In this Spud Fit Challenge DIY guide, featuring twelve super simple (and cheap!) recipes and a variety of mindfulness techniques to help you reset your body and mind, he shows you the how's, what's and why's of his unusual regime - the tale of which went viral and captivated people across the globe.

It's a scenario that will be depressingly familiar to all 'experienced dieters': towards the end of 2015, the former elite junior kayaker found himself more than 120 pounds (55kgs) overweight and feeling helpless, frustrated and in despair after yet another failed attempt at losing weight. With a lifetime of fad diets that only ever aimed to treat symptoms behind him, and armed only with the advice of 'the experts' whose discussion always began and ended with the message 'simply' to practise moderation, he had reached an impasse. Why couldn't he do moderation, like 'normal' people seemed to be able to? Sitting on the couch that day having reached his lowest point and not knowing the way out of the black hole that was swallowing his ability to enjoy life, he had that lightbulb moment: he was addicted to food. His mind raced - no other addict would eve ... Read More
