The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison.

Ann Wigmore

Many years of over reliance on processed carbohydrates and sugars in our everyday diet have left many in our society with diet related diseases. Obesity is on the rise, however, diet related disease is not always obvious as 40% of normal weight people, including teenagers, are metabolically unhealthy. Making the change to a better way of eating is not just a weight issue but a health issue.  

The good news is, the great majority of our carbohydrate needs can come from vegetables and fruits. Nature packages fruit and vegetables perfectly as they are always attached to fibre and jam packed full of nutrients. The more processed carbohydrates are, the less fibre and nutrients they contain and therein lies the problem. 


Natural fats have been given a bad wrap over the past few decades, however, current research supports the fact that natural fats are very good for you. They tend to be found in meat, fish, eggs, dairy, nuts, seeds, avocados, olives and natural oils.


There is a groundswell of evidence supporting the long term benefits of eating a diet rich in real foods and low in processed foods. Good to Eat is a resource for those who want to eat real food and lower their processed carbohydrate intake.

Dr Nicole Avena

When you eat something loaded with sugar, your taste buds, your gut and your brain all take notice. This activation of your reward system is not unlike how bodies process addictive substances such as alcohol or nicotine -- an overload of sugar spikes dopamine levels and leaves you craving more. Nicole Avena explains why sweets and treats should be enjoyed in moderation.

Dr Zoe Harcombe

In trying to understand why obesity increased almost ten fold in the UK between 1972 and 1999 Zoe Harcombe found herself looking for what had changed. To cut a long, but fascinating story short, our dietary advice was the thing that changed. We demonised fat; we eulogised carbohydrate – and epidemics of obesity and type 2 diabetes occurred. Coincidence or cause?

Regaining health in a sick world requires thinking and acting differently. It requires trusting not in corporate propaganda or old misinformation, but in nature. In the power of your own body to return to its natural state, given the right environment.

Our mission is to find the truth about health and supply tools for those who want to free themselves. Thus empowering people everywhere to revolutionize their health.
