Dr. Philip Ovadia
For as long as he can remember, Dr. Philip Ovadia was overweight - As a child, teenager, a student in medical school, and even as a cardiac surgeon. In 2015, Dr. Ovadia decided to try a new gluten-free diet in support of his wife, and he was stunned by the results. He immediately felt better, that he had more energy and watched as some of his excess weight disappeared. Today, Dr. Ovadia says that he is in the best shape of his life and has never been fitter or felt better.
Since then, he has launched Ovadia Cardiothoracic Surgery in 2020, working as an independent contractor in the United States. In 2021, he started Ovadia Heart Health, offering a virtual clinic to people all over the world with a focus on preventing and treating heart disease by modifying diet and lifestyle. He is the author of the book, Stay off My Operating Table: A Heart Surgeon’s Metabolic Health Guide to Lose Weight, Prevent Disease, and Feel Your Best Every Day.
