Dr. Philip Ovadia / Metabolic Health / Permanent Weight Loss

Dr. Ovadia was a heavy child, heavy teen and an obese cardiac surgeon. Both his parents were obese. yet, their family avoided sugar and ate healthy according to the USDA food pyramid.

Through observation of his heart patients, some heavy, some thin, he realized something wasn’t right with the way people eat. Thankfully, he discovered how to eat metabolically healthy and lost over 100 pounds.

His goal today is to keep us off his operating table!


From the Ovadia Heart Health website:

A new beginning.

They say that life begins at 40, and it was absolutely true in my case.

My entire life had been spent battling my weight; focused on it, losing it and gaining it. Then with a simple decision to support my wife, that battle ended with my victory.

This led me on a quest. I needed knowledge.

‘How did this happen?’

‘Why is this not in the Food Pyramid?’

‘Why had it not been taught to me as a medical practitioner?’

So I relentlessly researched the effects of food on health. I learned that much of what I had been taught at school was based on a number of fallacies.

I came to realize that our poor diets cause poor metabolic health, which is why we suffer from so many chronic diseases. Processed food is intentionally engineered to encourage people to eat more, creating a vicious cycle.

Worse, our healthcare environment is overly focused on prescribing medicines and treating the symptoms of a condition instead of addressing the root cause and preventing the issue in the first place.

Armed with all of this, it became my mission to help people. I am committed to this so you can enjoy good health, a better relationship with food, and not go through the years of anguish that I did.

A ‘healthy diet’ doesn’t mean smoothies and salads. A healthy diet, using real food, can be satisfying and easy to maintain.

I enjoy everything I eat – and most importantly, I am able to fully enjoy all the wonderful things in my life.

Now that you’re here (Ovadia Heart Health), you have access to all the information you’ll need to live a healthy, happy and joyful life, too.
