You might be wondering what he’s talking about this time?

Well, Evans has slammed the Dietitians Association of Australia in a scathing post on his Instagram page.

Along with a photo of Pinocchio, the chef writes, “Why is the system in place to protect us so CORRUPT? THE WORLD HAS GONE MAD!”

“A low carb approach with healthy fats is what we promote with Paleo and the DAA attack paleo and say it is dangerous to eat REAL FOOD!,” he writes.

“The DAA attack Dr Gary Fettke for promoting eating less sugar (low carb, healthy fat) which has him silenced from AHPRA even though at the same time, overseas Doctors are being awarded for teaching their patients to eat real food by using a low carb, healthy fat approach for reversing type 2 diabetes.

“Yet health professionals in Australia can take a seminar in how to get people to basically starve themselves on an 800 calorie diet created by NESTLE, one of the largest multinational food companies. The end result is that they are trying to promote low carb, but do the ingredients look like real food or are they filled with toxic sugar, toxic oils and other toxic sweeteners?”

Why is the system in place to protect us so CORRUPT? THE WORLD HAS GONE MAD! So lets get this straight. 1. A low carb approach with healthy fats is what we promote with Paleo and the DAA attack paleo and say it is dangerous to eat REAL FOOD! 2. The DAA attack Dr Gary Fettke for promoting eating less sugar (low carb, healthy fat) which has him silenced from AHPRA even though at the same time, overseas Doctors are being awarded for teaching their patients to eat real food by using a low carb, healthy fat approach for reversing type 2 diabetes. 3. Yet health professionals in Australia can take a seminar in how to get people to basically starve themselves on an 800 calorie diet created by NESTLE, one of the largest multinational food companies. The end result is that they are trying to promote low carb, but do the ingredients look like real food or are they filled with toxic sugar, toxic oils and other toxic sweeteners? check out the ingredients below Will the DAA report this company? Of course not, they are sponsored by that company! Oh and guess what, health professionals can sign up and do a 1.5 day seminar to learn how to feed basically a liquid toxic snack bar with a multivitamin added to it! Oh and it still comes in at 18 grams of sugar a serve in a 54 gram serving! WTF. Is this what a lot of doctors and dieticians promote to their patients to lose weight instead of just using common sense and eating REAL FOOD? And do they then offer surgery instead of again offering REAL FOOD? The scary thing is that below is somewhat similar to baby & toddler formula – Would the goal of these food companies be to feed humans from a tub or packet from birth to death….now who would that ultimately benefit? Thanks to In Support of Paleo and Low Carb Facebook for the heads up for alerting me to the fact that the DAA promote a 310 grams of carbs per day….again WTF https://www.facebook.com/groups/346242988900905/ Skimmed Milk Powder (34%), Milk Proteins [Calcium Caseinate (13%), Sodium Caseinate (7%)], Fructose, Vegetable Oils (Canola, Sunflower), Inulin, Maltodextrin (Corn), Sugar, Cocoa Powder (5%), Minerals (Potassium Citrate, Magnesium Carbonate,etc

A spokesperson for the DAA defended their decision to use Nestle as a a corporate partner.

The spokesperson told the Daily Mail while the organisation believes Evans is ‘a fantastic chef and personality’, it doesn’t believe he has has “the knowledge and training to give tailored nutrition advice.”

“We respect his emphasis on whole, unprocessed foods – that’s backed up by solid research, and something we can certainly agree on,” the spokesperson said.

“But he is not trained in nutrition science, and doesn’t have the knowledge and training to give tailored nutrition advice.”

  1. The Dietitian’s Association has gone nuts. I refuse to see one and have reversed my dependence on insulin on a low carb/healthy fat diet. Also cut processed sugar from my diet. I have gone from 11 tablets a day to 3. Evans is worth listening to.

    • I totally agree with Peter Evans. Sometimes an ounce of common sense is worth more than all the academic training in the world, especially if that training is corrupted by the sponsorship of vested interests. Evans has the courage to stand up to criminally irresponsible and plain dishonest vested interests hell bent on pushing poisonous rubbish on a desperate and gullible public. They condemn him because he is a threat to them. Keep up your good and courageous work in exposing these charlatans Peter Evans.

    • As a dietitian, I have a huge problem with professional organisations such as ADA taking sponsorship from the food industry.
      As for dietary advice such as HFLC & Paleo I remain concerned at the epidemiology that suggests there is higher mortality in populations that consume lower CHO, but I would work with a client on individual risk-benefit basis, because individuals have different responses to foods and different levels of motivation and ability to stick with atypical eating patterns.

    • In this case this celebrity is right. Have switched to low carb and have lost 30kg, normalised my blood sugars. This is more than any dietition has done. Note there are dietitions out there who do support the low carb high fat lifetstyle.

My wife is a degreed Naturopath and Owns Feel Good Health at Nobbys Beach, Gold Coast. She Studied for approx 2000 hrs on Nutrition whereas a GP doctor does about 12 hrs.
