About Dr C. Edward Pitt

Dr C. Edward Pitt MBBS FRACGP is a full time GP* and spare-time writer. He lives and works in the northern suburbs of Brisbane, Queensland, Australia.

He has been studying and working in the medical profession since 1992. He spent a number of years in hospital paediatrics before getting sick of shift-work and moving into general practice.

Since attaining his GP Fellowship in 2005, he has gained experience in many and varied areas of medicine including Skin Cancer Medicine, Cosmetic Medicine, Aged Care, and Sexual Health & Family Planning. He acts as an independent medico-legal expert in the field of general practice, and serves in executive positions on a number of national and state level boards for the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners.

His written work has been broadly published in a number of different spheres. In the early 2000’s, he was a regular writer for the national Christian magazine, “Alive”. He published his first book in 2009, “Stress Out”, now in its second edition. In 2013, he published "Hold That Thought: Reappraising The Work of Dr Caroline Leaf", and in 2015, he published "Fats and Figures", a short book on heart health. In early 2016 his article, "Cutting through the Paleo hype: The evidence for the Palaeolithic diet” was published by the peer reviewed medical journal Australian Family Physician.

He is a husband, father to two rambunctious boys, coffee connoisseur, amateur actor and a terrible dancer.
Whatever time he has left, he usually wastes it on Facebook or Angry Birds!
