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.
Stay Off My Operating Table will be available in print, e-book and audio formats November 11, 2021, from most booksellers.
Dr. Ovadia’s newsletter signup and metabolic health quiz:
How to judge your metabolic health:
|Waist (less than)||35 inches||40 inches|
|Fasting glucose level||Less than 100||Less than 100|
|Cholesterol HDL||More than 50||More than 40|
|Triglycerides||Less than 150||Less than 150|
triglycerides divided by HDL equals insulin resistance
I am thrilled to welcome Dr. Philip Ovadia, a heart surgeon who has lost more than 100 pounds and has kept those pounds off for many years. He has written a fascinating book: STAY OFF MY OPERATING TABLE: A HEART SURGEON’S METABOLIC HEALTH GUIDE TO LOSE WEIGHT, PREVENT DISEASE, AND FEEL YOUR BEST EVERY DAY.
As with many Americans, I need to lose weight. I look at pictures from 10 years ago and wonder how did these pounds creep up on me? I find it harder and harder to lose weight. I used to be able to walk a little faster, exercise a bit longer or lay off the ice cream for a few weeks and the pounds would come off. That’s not working for me now.
After reading an advance copy of his book and interviewing Dr. Ovadia, I know metabolic health is more important than the number on the scale. Dr. Ovadia gives us five measures to determine our metabolic health, and I am pleased only one of my numbers is off, but there’s a thin Carolyn inside me and I want her back.
If any of you are interested in joining me on a weight loss challenge, please send me an e-mail and let’s do this together!
