Powter was born in Sydney in 1957 and lived there until she immigrated to the United States at age 10. She left school in 9th grade. Twice married, she described herself to Curve magazine in 2004 as a "radical feminist lesbian woman". She has two sons from her first marriage, Damien and Kiel. She adopted a third son after her second marriage.
In 1994, Powter starred in her own talk-show style television program called The Susan Powter Show, which ran for one season. On the show, she discussed nutrition and fitness as well as other topics with her guests. She was also a special guest on the first episode of Space Ghost Coast to Coast, titled "Spanish Translation".
Motivational speaker and nutritionist
Advocate of a whole-foods, organic, low-fat diet, and regular cardiovascular and strength-training exercise, Powter also condemned the diet industry.
Her platinum-white close cropped haircut, aggressive manner of speaking, and being barefoot while speaking in public became an element of her celebrity. She has since grown out her hair and has multiple tattoos.
Powter was originally based in Dallas, Texas at the height of her fame. She eventually sold her studio in Dallas and moved to Seattle, Washington. As of 2012, she was living in a self-described "earth ship" in New Mexico. As of 2016, she lives in Las Vegas.
Author and blogger
Powter is author of several books, three of which became New York Times best-sellers in the 1990s. In 2002, she returned to writing with The Politics of Stupid, a stream-of-consciousness, self-published manifesto encouraging women to take control of their brains and bodies from food manufacturers, corrupt governments, and fitness/diet industries.
Powter's website reported that she would host a radio show beginning in May 2006 and a cooking show entitled Taste My Broth within the year. She also puts out The Monthly Flow, a subscription-based multi-media e-zine.
In November 2007, Powter re-launched her fitness and wellness blog.
