Australian Wellness Blogger and Cookbook Author Fined $321,000 for Cancer Hoax

Australian Wellness Blogger and Cookbook Author Fined $321,000 for Cancer Hoax

A wellness blogger and cookbook author is being fined for $321,440 after admitting she lied to her followers. In a special investigation with The Australian Women’s Weekly, the 28-year-old confessed that her cancer diagnosis was a complete fabrication. Oh, and she’s also only 25 (she lied about her age, too).

“I don’t want forgiveness,” she told Women’s Weekly. “I just think [speaking out] was the responsible thing to do. Above anything, I would like people to say, ‘Okay, she’s human.’”

Gibson rose to fame in 2013 when she announced that she had been healing terminal brain cancer with clean eating after being given just months to live. She gained millions of followers on social media, and her app, “The Whole Pantry,” and book by the same name became best sellers. Gibson vowed to donate $300,000 of her earnings to charity, which turned out to be untrue.

Her story began to fall apart in 2015 when it was revealed she’d never made the thousands of dollars in promised donations. A report by The Sydney Morning Herald raised concerns about where those funds were really going: designer clothes, $2,000 handbags, first-class international travel, a luxury beachside apartment, and a BMW.

According to The Guardian, a federal court justice in Melbourne has ordered Gibson to pay the $321,440 penalty. The judge also mentioned that if Gibson were able to pay the penalties, it might be possible that “some or all of the funds can be donated to some or all of the organizations, and people, Ms. Gibson had promised would receive donations.”

In addition to what you may or may not have read in The Whole Pantry, here are 10 dieting myths you have to stop believing.


My Honest Noom Review- I Did the WHOLE Program (Plus 1 Year Update)

Inside: I used Noom for LONGER than just two weeks. Here's what really happens when you do the whole program. In this Noom Coach Review, get a look at the new Noom Weight Loss App, along with a full review and my personal results. See the pros and cons of this weight watchers alternative. I have also added a 2020 update in the Results section. Direct affiliate links are used in this post.

Hi I'm Laura, stay at home mom to two school aged kids. You can't tell but in the picture on the left, my jeans are unbuttoned and being held up by my belt, tightly fastened on the last hole.

The past several years I saw a trend in my life, starting about a week before Halloween. The first crinkle of a fun size Snickers would ring in my ears like a starting pistol.

The days and weeks that followed would see me gobbling up everything in sight, like I was Ms. Pacman and ALL THE FOOD was my power pellets. “It's the holidays, it only happens once a year” became a daily mantra. It was ridiculous.

Can you relate to my Halloween candy weakness? You'd think by now, we'd know better.

Well last year, back around my birthday in September I realized I was one pound away from the heaviest I'd ever been.

I decided to try this new weight loss program that I found. It's a paid app and, while it wasn't perfect, it was different from any other weight loss program or product out there.

I know it sounds crazy to start a weight loss program heading into the holidays, but given my past actions and results, I decided I'd be crazy NOT to!

EDITED TO ADD: I originally shared this Noom review in January 2018. I have since added my Noom before and after photos and I am also adding my thoughts over one year later on whether or not Noom helped me keep my weight off. I also added an update with the craziness of 2020!

You might be wondering if I work for Noom, but I do not. I paid for the program myself, finished the whole program, had a great experience, lost my weight and then cancelled my membership. I DO however, proudly share my Noom Affiliate Referral Link, and you'll get a refer-a-friend link of your own if you join Noom and want to refer friends and family. If my review helps you make your decision I would love it if you joined through my referral link. (I even offer my Noom Food List Cheat Sheets as a Thank You!)

Let's take a look at the features, how it works, my review of the app, and I'll reveal my results.
