Does Cake Make You Fat?

Ask a 1,000,000 people this question and 999,999 of them will tell you, yes, cake makes you fat. Of course, it does, everyone knows that right??


Well, the 1 person happy to disagree with them all is Drew Baird. This idiot says no, cake doesn’t make you fat. Either Drew Baird is an angel sent from heaven happily proclaiming “you can have your cake and eat it too” or he’s an A Grade douchebag wanker who has no idea what he’s speaking about. The jury is still out on this one lol.

For those 999,999 people here’s the hard truth that will be bitter to swallow because you’re about to tuck your tail between your legs…


The ONLY thing that will make an individual gain weight is being in a sustained calorie surplus over an extended period of time (excluding some medical conditions & medications). It’s not cake that makes a person gain weight, it’s the fact that cake is part of their overall diet, which is in a calorie surplus so, over 6 months, a year, 3 years, 10 years, this individual gains weight.


Cake doesn’t make you fat. Fast food doesn’t make you fat. Not working out doesn’t make you fat. Being in a sustained calorie surplus over an extended period of time will.


You can eat cake and not gain weight, or even lose weight, if, even after eating cake, you stay in a sustained calorie deficit. IT’S THAT BLOODY SIMPLE. So yes, Drew Baird is an angel sent from the heavens.

Check Out These Amazing Results From Our Program


Drew cuts nothing out. The method gives you that perfect balance of carbs, fat, and sugar. Before I would eat my chicken, rice, and broccoli and feel good, and then eat something bad later and be filled with self-loathing.

On this programme, I can eat goat's cheese carbonara - which I had the other evening - healthy homemade chocolate and pasta, it's all about moderation. I love myself now. I don't pick at things I hate, I eat what I enjoy


My advice to anyone on this program is just to stick with it. Keep going. Don't beat yourself up for a slip-up, pick up and keep going. It gets easier with time. Love yourself always, even when you don't like yourself that much, you can and will do it! Talk to others and don't be afraid to say how you are feeling. Thank you for the opportunity to tell my story.


For about 2 months the DBF program just kept popping up on my news feed. I kept putting off joining until I saw a picture of myself at my cousin's wedding.  This photo finally got me to sign up and I haven't looked back. Its been so much easier then I thought it would be.

I sleep better, my skin is clearer and I've also found an outlet for when I'm anxious or stressed. I can't thank Drew, his team and everyone else that is going through this program as well. There is so much support in this group it makes this journey so much easier. 


The great thing is my perception of myself has now changed dramatically. I no longer look at myself with self-loathing when I try on clothes. What was once a chore is now something I really enjoy. I have more confidence to go out and mix with other people and the DBF way has just become a part of my lifestyle now.

For anyone who is doubting themselves I say keep going, what have you got to lose apart from all the things you don't like? What have you got to gain? Everything that you always wanted to be! Just go for it, like me, you will be so glad you did!


My whole way of thinking about food has changed and I now make healthier choices without even realizing it and this is the first time on a diet that I have actually changed my way of thinking. I still have my cheat meal every Saturday night and that will continue as this is my new way of eating.


Thank you, Drew and all the team for everything you have done for me on my journey, if it wasn’t for your guidance, support and those coaching calls I don’t think I would have done it.


I am enjoying this journey immensely.Yes, there are hard days, but my achievements are so rewarding. I was an emotional eater, now I’m boosting with energy, feel great in everything I wear and my confidence has got me feeling amazing. No negativity is going to sabotage my journey. I have turned 51 and health wise I was having all sorts of issues. So can’t thank you all enough for teaching me what I know now.


The thing I find best about this program is that is isn't all about losing weight its a whole lifestyle change! Mind, body, and soul.
