Stay Off My Operating Table

Dr. Philip Ovadia

I was a morbidly obese heart surgeon.

Throughout high school, college, med school and surgical training, I followed the U.S. dietary guidelines for both diet and exercise.

Yet nothing I did kept the weight off.  I just kept getting bigger and bigger.

Each day in the operating theater I would split open the chests of people just like me. I knew I was heading for the operating table myself if I didn't find solutions that worked.

In 2016, I finally found a way to lose 100 pounds and keep it off.

Now - in addition to doing heart surgery - I work to help people just like me get healthy, lose the weight and keep it off.

I'm Dr. Philip Ovadia, the rebel M.D. and cardiac surgeon who is working to keep people off my operating table.

Our Editor's Take

The Stay Off My Operating Table podcast strives to help people lead healthier lives. The host is cardiac surgeon and author Dr. Philip Ovadia. Following his weight-loss journey, he decided to relearn everything about nutrition.

Philip says he was overweight until the age of 40, despite keeping active. He tried various approaches to health over the years, but he was still obese.

Peter Ballerstedt on the Ruminant Revolution, Sustainable Food Production and Human Health #140

Peter Ballerstedt on the Ruminant Revolution, Sustainable Food Production and Human Health #140
In this podcast, Peter Ballerstedt, a forage agronomist and ruminant nutritionist, challenges conventional wisdom about animal agriculture's role in human health and sustainable food production. He argues that ruminant animals, like cows, sheep, and goats, are crucial for converting inedible plant material into nutrient-dense food for humans while improving soil health and biodiversity.Ballerstedt explains ruminants' unique digestive process, which allows them to thrive on a forage-only diet. Microorganisms in their rumen break down cellulose, converting it into fatty acids and microbial protein that the animal can absorb and use.He believes current dietary guidelines promoting plant-based diets may be misguided, as populations consuming less than 30% of calories from animal-sourced foods face increased nutrient deficiencies. Animal foods provide essential nutrients in a highly bioavailable form.Ballerstedt argues for increased animal-sourced food consumption across all populations to improve global health and address nutrient deficiencies. While acknowledging environmental concerns, he highlights the benefits of properly managed grazing on soil health, biodiversity, and carbon sequestration.Looking ahead, Ballerstedt sees ruminant animal agriculture as a solution to nourishing a growing population while protecting the planet, envisioning a future where well-nourished individuals collaborate to solve global issues. His insights challenge listeners to reconsider assumptions about food production and recognize ruminants' vital role in creating a healthier, more sustainable future.---------------------------Connect with Peter Ballerstedt:Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/GrassBasedHealthYouTube: https://www.youtube.com/@Don_Pedro-SodFather/videosInstagram: https://www.instagram.com/grassbasedX: https://twitter.com/GrassBasedSubStack: https://ruminati.substack.com/Website: https://grassbasedhealth.blogspot.com/ Chances are, you wouldn't be listening to this podcast if you didn't need to change your life and get healthier.

They call the diet "Banting" in South Africa, in honor of the man who first proposed the ketogenic diet more than 100 years ago. Chef Jonno Proudfoot helped to popularize not just the term but the diet itself when he swam from Mozambique to Madagascar in the same year he released a Cook Book along with the legendary Tim Noakes. That confluence of circumstances spurred a nationwide movement towards a low-carb, high-fat lifestyle. Proudfoot narrates his story with a dash of history, a pinch of socio-political context, and a sprinkle of media influence. Jonno provides practical tips for those attempting the delicate balance of promoting a healthy lifestyle without commercializing it. It's a conversation rich with tales from the kitchen to the coastline. Shownotes:Website: https://jonnoproudfoot.com/Website: https://realmealrevolution.com/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jonnoproudfoot/Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/jonnoproudfoot=========================================== Chances are, you wouldn't be listening to this podcast if you didn't need to change your life and get healthier.

Have you ever stood at the edge of life, teetering between the will to live and the temptation to end it all? Kevin Hines faced this chilling reality when he leapt from the Golden Gate Bridge, only to embrace life fiercely during his fall. In this astonishing conversation with Kevin, he describes the raw emotions and struggles with bipolar depression that brought him to the brink of death, the miraculous series of "coincidences" that saved him, and the extraordinary new life he has discovered on "the other side." Through his own battles with nutrition and gut health, Kevin connects "mind" with "body" as he explains how our physical health affects our mental state, and vice versa.  Kevin says we each have a tale to tell, a personal narrative that can shake the world. His message is clear: life's value is immeasurable, and hope is a lifeline  we can extend to one another, one story, one moment, one outreach at a time.========================Website: KevinHinesStory.comSocial Media: @KevinHines======================== Chances are, you wouldn't be listening to this podcast if you didn't need to change your life and get healthier.

Dr. Robert Pearl is the visionary former CEO of Kaiser-Permanente Medical Group and a passionate advocate of putting the "health" back into modern American healthcare.

Eric Berg: "Healthcare Should Enhance Health, not Merely Manage Disease" #131
Dr. Eric Berg is a well-respected pioneer in keto and low-carb circles. He's a man who's been there almost from the beginning. So, rather than just cover old ground, we venture into the controversies and pushback from those industries that are threatened by the metabolic health movement.  As it turns out, it seems the rise of keto threatens the economic biases and informational control exerted by powerful food companies. Who knew?In our conversation, we venture into the heart of the global dietary debate, where the tension between corporate interests and individual health is palpable.  Dr. Berg breaks down the complexities of the battle. On one side, the protein-centric ketogenic diet. On the other, the corporate-backed dietary guidelines that favor grains and sugars. The implications are vast. We touch on public health, the medical establishment, and of course, Big Pharma.Finally, our conversation looks to the future of health and nutrition, with Metabolomics and personalized medicine taking center stage. Dr. Berg advances the revolutionary idea that healthcare should enhance our natural vitality, not merely manage disease. -------------Connect with Dr. Eric BergWebsiteLinkTreeTwitter ===================== Chances are, you wouldn't be listening to this podcast if you didn't need to change your life and get healthier.

Dr. Georgia Ede: Fix Your Mind by Fixing Your Diet #130
You know there's something wrong with the state of medicine when doctors don't even consider "recovery" a possibility. That's the state of modern psychiatry. Dr. Georgia Ede believed it was true and accepted it as reality. That is, she believed it until she was faced with her own health problems. Her recovery from those health issues challenged that belief. She experienced the connection between diet and mental health personally. That experience inspired her to introduce the same food-based method to her patients. When they got the same positive results she got, she knew she was onto something.Psychiastist Dr. Georgia Ede leads us through her transition from conventional psychiatric methods to a pioneer in the field of nutritional psychiatry.

Grace Price: Since We Haven't Cured Cancer, Why Not Prevent It? #126
When an 18-year-old trailblazer named Grace Price joins our show, you can't help but feel the presence of a burgeoning scientific mind. Our latest episode captures Grace's remarkable story from a personal tragedy to a profound quest. With a remarkable self-taught understanding of biology, chemistry, and epigenetics, Grace explains why she questioned conventional nutritional wisdom, and addresses some hard truths about the food on our plates and the impact of ultra-processed products on our bodies. With guidance from experts like Dr. Thomas Seyfried, she's developed an expert understanding of the metabolic origins of cancer. It's no surprise to listeners of this show that she now challenges the healthcare system's entrenched focus on profitable, (and largely ineffective), treatments of cancer rather than inexpensive, (and largely non-monetizable) prevention of the dreaded disease. This episode isn't just a deep dive into the science; it's a critical look at the food industry's deceptive marketing, the inadequacies of dietary guidelines, and the urgent need for a pivot toward prevention in medicine. Grace's experiences at Alpha School—a hub for innovation in education—exemplify how young minds are being shaped to tackle significant challenges, from personal health crusades to broad societal shifts. The desire for change is palpable as we discuss the impact of dietary revelations on a generation ready to fix the broken parts of our food system. Knowing there are young people like Grace working on the problems of health and nutrition, this is perhaps the most hopeful episode yet in the history of Stay Off My Operating Table.Join us on this enlightening expedition through the intersections of health, nutrition, and the power of informed choices, led by a voice that is as commanding as it is youthful.----------------------Learn more about Grace PriceTwitterWebsiteAlpha School Chances are, you wouldn't be listening to this podcast if you didn't need to change your life and get healthier.

She joins us from India to discuss her unique approach to combating this global health crisis. Dr. Sanghani's "lifestyle-first "philosophy stresses cultural understanding and patient education over heavily-prescribed medicines. As you'd expect, her approach is making waves, as well as getting extraordinary results.Is carbohydrate restriction a viable treatment for diabetes or is it merely a controversial theory? Dr. Sanghani challenges conventional guidelines because it often overlooks the role of diet in disease management. We ask her why the medical community resists this therapeutic approach. She touches upon possible reasons, such as conflict of interest and cognitive bias, and emphasizes her call for a more comprehensive, patient-centric approach to treatment.Finally, Dr. Sanghani shares some good news about her upcoming book on diabetes management, which she hopes will help revolutionize the current approach to diabetes. -----------------Connect with Dr. Sanghani WebsiteInstagramFacebookLinkedIn Chances are, you wouldn't be listening to this podcast if you didn't need to change your life and get healthier.
