"Stay off My Operating Table is a must-read. This is the book
for any physician or patient who wants to prevent disease if
possible and to otherwise improve outcomes. Dr. Ovadia understands
the central role metabolic health plays in the body, knowledge
which enables him to keep potential future cardiac patients off his
operating table. I am sharing this book with other doctors at the

"Most so-called 'health experts' have no idea what they're talking about. In fact, their advice usually results in you getting sicker, fatter, and angrier. And you're left with no clue about what to do different. Dr. Philip Ovadia changes everything. Not only is he an actual doctor who understands the problems with our sick-care system, he knows how the human body actually works. In Stay off My Operating Table, Dr. Ovadia shows you how to get your metabolic health right and, in turn, get everything else right. Your weight, your blood sugar, your blood pressure, your cholesterol and triglycerides, your energy, everything."

"Working in clinical medicine for more than twenty years has demonstrated to me that we often overlook the root cause of chronic disease in an effort to manage symptoms. I firmly believe that if we could help identify the real etiologies and reasons for chronic illness, and the lifestyle contributors to inflammation, insulin resistance, etc., we would have a much healthier population. Dr. Philip Ovadia's book brilliantly identifies how best to empower our current medical establishment to help reverse current statistics and metabolic inflexibility."
