We are joined today by a very inspiring doctor, Dr. Philip Ovadia. Dr. Ovadia is a cardiothoracic surgeon and has seen great results using a low-carb dietary intervention with his patients. Having struggled with obesity earlier in his life, he realized that he had to make a change and needed an answer to his weight problem. That answer came in the form of low-carb which he discovered after attending a lecture by Gary Taubes.
We discuss the causes of heart disease, the metabolic markers for heart disease, the appropriate time and place for the usage of Statin drugs vs. lifestyle change, and the central role that insulin resistance plays in virtually all chronic disease.
Eighty-eight percent of Americans are metabolically unhealthy. We discuss in this episode how it is vital for the health of our nation’s citizens that doctors, medical professionals, and professionals from other fields work together to address this problem together.
