Publisher's Summary

What foods to put on your table, so you don’t end up on mine.

Most diet books teach you to set short-term weight loss goals. Whether low-carb or low-fat, the typical plan goes like this: restrict your food choices, exercise until exhaustion, and swallow stacks of supplements. These “solutions” do a better job of lightening your wallet than lightening you.

Meanwhile, the healthcare industry fails to prevent chronic disease. Rather than showing people how to remain healthy and prevent illness through proper nutrition, the system offers drugs and surgery to manage symptoms.

As a heart surgeon who used to be morbidly obese, Dr. Philip Ovadia has seen firsthand the failures of mainstream diets and medicine. He realized that what helped him lose over 100 pounds was the same solution that could have prevented most of the thousands of open heart surgeries he has performed - metabolic health.

What you eat determines how long and how well you live. Yet most doctors don’t learn that in medical school. And pharmaceutical companies and food manufacturers have a vested interest in the public not knowing how to live and eat metabolically healthy.

In Stay Off My Operating Table, Dr. Ovadia shares the complete metabolic health system to prevent disease and optimize your health, a system that the diet and drug industries don’t want you to know about. Unlike quick-fix, “seven-day”, radical diets, Dr. Ovadia’s approach is a sustainable, long-term solution that works. Whether you’ve suffered from chronic diseases or want to prevent them decades from now, Stay Off My Operating Table will help you take back control of your health from the institutions and experts that have failed you.

Great, valuable information

I found this book helpful to validate my decision to go to Ketovore. Another good thing he isn't promoting one way of eating to another but Carnivor obviously works. I would love to have a consult with the Dr but time differences make that difficult!
The other thing I valued is Dr Philip using his journey to encourage hime to make changes for himself & do the research for self help & to help others. A good takaway, change your mindset, stop using the word diet! Loved the book, thank you Philip

Excellent!!

Easily actionable information to change your diet and health trajectory. In 3 weeks I've totally changed my diet to whole foods and already noticed an improvement to my general well-being... and I didn't have to spend tons of time and $$ on finding exotic ingredients I'd never used before. Oh, and my weight has started dropping 👍. What's not to like??
