Our expert says:
As a dietitian registered with the Health Professions Council of SA and the Association for Dietetics in SA, I would lose my registrations and not be allowed to practice if I handed out a diet that contains 50% of energy from fat and only 20% from carbohydrate. I would strongly advise you to consult a registered dietitian in your area (visit the Association for Dietetics in SA Website at: www.adsa.org.za and click on "Find a Dietitian" to find a dietitian in your specific area), so that you can have an individual low-fat, low-GI diet prescribed for you.
