The Trouble with Fructose - Dr. Gary Fettke
Show Notes

This is part 2 of the discussion I had with Dr. Gary Fettke.  We talk about fructose, fruits and much more. Make sure to listen to the full interview to get the full details.

In case you missed it, you can listen to part 1 here:

Dr. Gary Fettke is an orthopedic surgeon practicing in Launceston, Tasmania, Australia. He has a major interest in preventative medicine and encourages his patients to lose weight before undergoing surgery. Although his specialty is surgery, he believes it is much better to help people avoid surgery if at all possible by taking preventative measures, which often involve altering their diet.

In recent years Dr. Fettke has focused on the role of diet in the development of diabetes, obesity and cancer. He has been speaking out on the combined role of sugar, fructose, refined carbohydrates and polyunsaturated oils linking together to be behind inflammation and modern disease.

He has incurred the wrath of regulatory bodies for his stand on public health, but he and his wife, Belinda, remain active defending the benefits of a low-carb and healthy fat living. Their ongoing work has uncovered the vested interests and ideologies shaping nutritional guidelines at an international level.

We discuss the following: 

  • Thoughts on fructose
  • Sugar cravings
  • Low-carb meal for kids
  • Thoughts on fruits
  • Fructose and seed oils
  • The importance of nitric oxide
  • Adding sugar to medications
  • Where to find Dr. Gary Fettke
  • Words of encouragement
