Dr Gary Fettke is an Orthopaedic Surgeon and vocal proponent of nutrition being a major component of prevention and management of modern disease.
In 2014, he became targeted by the processed food industry for his opinion on the perils of excessive sugar consumption, culminating in a ‘silencing’ by the Medical Board. 2018 saw a clearance of those charges with an apology from the board. In the process of that investigation, it became apparent that the issues were not just that of sugar reduction but that of the recommendation of animal-based protein and healthy fats in a balanced diet.
He has a broad understanding of the vested interests shaping dietary guidelines.

Quotes by Dr Gary Fettke
“This is the biochemistry. I am not making this stuff up. What’s written on a packet, that’s called advertising, that’s made up. The food guidelines are just made up.”
“We are poisoning our patients”
“This is so flamin’ obvious even an orthopedic surgeon can put this together”
“I admit I got it wrong, I got it wrong big time. I’ve apologised to my patients, I’ve apologised to my children”
“Eat fresh, local, seasonal whole food based on your culture and environment avoiding added sugar and processed food”
“I got reported to the medical board on three occasions for advising my patients to not eat sugar and considering low carb. One of those times I got reported was for inappropriately reversing someone’s type two diabetes.”
“Hospital food is crap and it is killing my patients”
“You can track osteoarthritis by the migration of the potato”
“Whoever controls the protein, controls the people”
“Science evolves by being challenged not by being followed”
