Sweet Poison: Why Sugar Makes us Fat

Understand and break your addiction to sugar with David Gillespie's Sweet Poison. David Gillespie was 6 stone overweight, lethargic and desperate to lose weight fast - but he'd failed every diet out there. When David cut sugar from his diet he immediately started to lose weight and - more amazingly - kept it off. Now slim and with new reserves of energy, David set out to investigate the connection between sugar, our soaring obesity rates and some of the more worrying diseases of the twenty-first century. He discovered: It's not our fault we're fat; sugar was once such a rare resource that we haven't developed an off-switch - we can keep eating sugar without feeling full; in the space of 150 years, we have gone from eating no added sugar to more than 2 pounds a week; eating that much sugar, you would need to run 4. 5 miles every day of your life to not put on weight; and food manufacturers exploit our sugar addiction by lacing it through 'non-sweet' products like bread, sauces and...

David "Cement" Gillespie (born 22 March 1964 in Narromine, New South Wales) is an Australian former professional rugby league footballer of the 1980s and 90s. A sturdy forward, he played for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, Western Suburbs Magpies, Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles, New South Wales and for the Australian national side. He is currently a defensive coach for both the Roosters and the Sharks, being a close friend of Ricky Stuart.

Originally form the central west town of Narromine, Gillespie joined Canterbury in their rebuilding after the 1980 premiership and was soon a success with his powerful tackling which earned him the well-known nickname "Cement". His defence was critical to Canterbury's retention of the title against a heavily favoured St. George side in 1985 after having scored a rare try in their powerful 26-nil win over Parramatta in the preliminary final.

The following year, despite not having played for New South Wales, Gillespie was favoured to tour with the Kangaroos before a horrible work injury which almost saw his finger severed ended his season.[1] Then, 1987 saw two suspensions (in one of which he was, unusually, sent off on the first tackle of a match against Balmain) rob Gillespie of over a third of his season. He played for English side Hunslet during the 1987–88 Rugby Football League season.[2] Returning to Australia "Cement" came back stronger in 1988 and played so well in the grand final that he was chosen for the World Cup final against New Zealand, but in 1989 he was so disappointing as to be briefly relegated to reserve grade before a four-week suspension for a dangerous tackle effectively ended his season.

In 1990 Gillespie finally established himself as a representative player with powerful displays for New South Wales and in the Test against France in Parkes. At the end of the 1990 NSWRL season, he went on the 1990 Kangaroo tour of Great Britain and France and played in all the Tests. He placed himself in the controversial draft and was chosen by Wests, for whom he was to play while an Australian regular. His high workrate was a vital part of two big wins against New Zealand in 1991 and against Great Britain during the 1992 Great Britain Lions tour of Australia and New Zealand, helping Australia retain The Ashes – though he was criticised at times for not being so committed at club level. 1993 saw Gillespie fall out with Warren Ryan and signed with Manly for 1994. However, the quicker 10-metre rule made his play – based on workrate – less effective and he lost in place in the NSW team after one match.

In 1995, despite being an integral part of a Manly team that threatened for a long time to march through the season undefeated – Gillespie was not considered too old and slow for the representative games until late in the year when he played for Australia against New Zealand. He played in Manly's 1996 premiership side but retired after their loss to Newcastle in the isolated ARL grand final the following year.
