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 info.

Great information that jibes with a lot of research out there. This is well rounded info. while I'm not sure how I feel about straight carnivore I do believe in the message.

AMAZING

I have a lot of books on keto, carnivore, sugar and health in general. I love how he explained everything in simple terms that anyone can understand. Even giving a person suggestions on different types of eating plans. Everything you need to know is in this one book.
This is the audio but I am going to order the book so I can mark it all up!! Lois R.

Great information from the most credible source possible!

Amazing how plain and clear this information is and how the mainstream medical community resists it so zealously!
It is mind boggling how so many powerful organizations can manipulate all of humanity just for profit at the cost of millions of lives.
Even when the victims don’t die their quality of life deteriorates drastically.
SAD, Just sad!!!!

Great book with tons of valuable information!

I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. This is a no nonsense approach to taking control of your own health. Dr. Ovadia has been through his own journey and it's clear he has a desire to truly help people without just prescribing drugs or recommending unnecessary surgeries. This is a breath of fresh air for a heart surgeon, or any doctor, to look at the body as a whole, and how to heal from the inside out. Thank you Dr. Ovadia for an amazing, and well written, highly informative book!

A Real Doctor!

This guy is working hard to save lives. He just may save yours too! Very practical advice. He is not advocating a temporary diet change but rather a permanent change in your way of eating.

Great summary from a recovering allopathic!

Philip spells out the damage caused by the crappy diet pushed by big pharma and big food with the support of medical organisations.
very brave to go against those powerful interests.

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??
