Change your diet or you'll die; Low carb advice lands doctor in hot water!
Gary Fettke is an orthopaedic surgeon and an advocate of a low carbohydrate diet.
He said he became passionate about nutrition after amputating limbs of diabetic patients whose diets were a big part of the problem.
"What I've been advocating for some years is cutting sugar down, particularly all the refined sugars in the diet," he said.
"Over time that's evolved, and it's evolved to what I call low carb, healthy fat.
"It's just eating lots of vegetables, pasture-fed meat and the right amount of oil in the form of things like nuts, avocado, cheese, olive oil and fish."
One of his patients, Julian Robinson, who had to have his leg amputated because of complications from diabetes, said the diet changed his life for the better.
