With his brand new book, The Proof is in the Plants, having just been released in the United States, Simon Hill is on a mission to make nutritional information simple and accessible so that people can make informed decisions about the food they feed themselves and their family.
Simon and I had an intriguing conversation that covered many topics that are of interest to our audience, including the latest scientific evidence on…
  • Animal vs. plant protein: Which is more effective for building lean muscle
  • What to do if you’ve hit a weight loss plateau
  • How to avoid feeling bloated and gassy from eating beans
  • The lectin controversy
  • Much more!
Get ready to take notes… So much gold in this episode!
More About Simon:
Simon Hill is a Physiotherapist and Nutritionist who is passionate about making nutritional information simple and accessible so that people can make informed decisions about the food they feed themselves and their families.
In 2008, Simon completed a Bachelor of Physiotherapy and immediately began working as a Sports Physiotherapist in Melbourne both at a leading private practice and with professional AFL & VFL footballers.
Over the years, however, Simon became increasingly curious about the role nutrition played in nourishing the body and preventing disease. By using his research skills developed during his honors degree, Simon dove deep into the available literature on nutrition & disease and soon became fascinated by the vast evidence out there that proved that simple lifestyle changes could help people prevent and sometimes even reverse many of the leading chronic diseases that plague the western world today.
Concerned with the fact that this information was not reaching people but was instead getting lost amidst the myriad of marketing ploys pushed by industries who were more interested in profits than the health and general well-being of the public, Simon shifted gears in his career undertaking a Plant-Based Nutrition Certificate and a post-graduate degree in Nutrition.
During this time, he set up plantproof.com and began hosting world-renowned doctors and public figures, such as Neurologist’s Dean & Ayesha Sherzai, MD, Dr. Will Bulsiewicz, MD, Dr. David Katz, MD, Environmental Researcher Nicholas Carter, Climate Scientist Dr Jonathon Foley, and Ultra-Athlete Rich Roll on the Plant Proof podcast.
Over the course of the past decade, Simon’s mission has become clearer and clearer. Most of the time, nutrition is spoken about in isolation from other major world issues, despite an enormous degree of interconnectedness. Just as our food system is a human health issue it is also a human and animal rights issue. Just as climate change is a planetary health issue, it is a human rights issue.
Through the Plant Proof channels, Simon’s hope is that more of us will work together to creating a more equitable, beautiful and peaceful world. Something we are proud of today, and something future generations continue to enjoy. And this starts with becoming more connected, more informed, more mindful, and more conscious.
