Discover the main cause of heart disease and how to fix it. Learn about the importance of mindset and the role of food in improving metabolic health and reversing insulin resistance.

00:00:00 Discover the true cause of heart disease and how to prevent it. Learn about the dangerous foods to avoid and the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle. #1 Heart Surgeon shares his personal transformation.

❗️ 88 percent of adults in the US are not metabolically healthy, and the primary driver of heart disease is not dietary saturated fat, but rather lifestyle choices.

📚 The heart surgeon, who was once morbidly obese, realized that the conventional advice of eating less and following a low-fat diet was not effective in preventing heart disease.

🥦 The surgeon advocates for a different approach to preventing heart disease, emphasizing the importance of a proper diet and lifestyle interventions.

00:05:31 Discover the main cause of heart disease and how to fix it. Learn about the importance of mindset and the role of food in improving metabolic health and reversing insulin resistance.

Knowing why you want to improve your health is crucial.

Insulin resistance and poor metabolic health are the primary drivers of heart disease.

Type 2 diabetes can be reversed by focusing on the food you eat.

00:10:59 Processed foods and sugar are the worst foods for your heart. Natural sugars in fruit can be harmful if you have insulin resistance. The key is to eat whole, real food and focus on metabolic health.

🍕 Processed foods, particularly those high in carbohydrates and vegetable/seed oils, are major contributors to chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes.

🍬 Sugar, especially in high amounts, should be limited or eliminated from the diet, as it can have harmful effects on metabolic health.

🍎 Fruit consumption should depend on an individual's metabolic health and insulin resistance. Those who are metabolically healthy and active may tolerate some sugar from fruit, but for most people with insulin resistance or obesity, it is best to limit or avoid fruit.

🥦 Eating whole, real foods, particularly those that grow in the ground, is recommended for improving metabolic health and managing insulin resistance.

00:16:28 Learn from a heart surgeon about the diet strategies that can improve metabolic health and debunking the myth of saturated fat causing heart disease.

The focus is on improving and optimizing metabolic health through a flexible dietary approach.

The speaker chose the carnivore lifestyle because it helps them feel their best and is easy to follow.

Dietary saturated fat does not cause heart disease, and the belief that it does is based on flawed science and socio-political agendas.

The quality of cholesterol and the environment it functions in are more important than the actual amount of cholesterol in the body.

00:22:02 A heart surgeon questions the approach of lowering all LDL cholesterol to prevent heart disease. He emphasizes the importance of understanding the nuance around cholesterol quality and environment. The surgeon suggests focusing on specific metrics like waist circumference, blood pressure, and lab results to assess metabolic health. He also discusses the limited effectiveness of cardio for weight loss, and prioritizes building muscle for maintaining metabolic health.

🔑 Current approach to LDL cholesterol is not effective in reducing heart disease incidence.

🧬 Quality of cholesterol and its functioning environment are important factors in heart disease.

💉 Assessing waist circumference, blood pressure, blood glucose level, HDL cholesterol level, and triglyceride level can determine metabolic health.

💪 Building muscle is prioritized over cardio for weight loss and maintaining metabolic health.

00:27:31 A heart surgeon emphasizes the importance of resistance training over cardio for improving metabolic health and longevity. Counting calories is not an effective strategy for weight loss. The surgeon follows an animal-based diet with a focus on protein.

✨ Resistance training is more important than cardio for improving metabolic health and longevity.

🍽️ Counting calories is not a useful strategy for weight loss and optimal health.

🥩 A heart surgeon follows a simple dietary pattern of fasting, consuming animal-based foods, and focusing on adequate protein intake.

00:33:04 Learn about the potential benefits of fasting for weight loss and reversing disease, as well as the importance of following hunger signals. Find Dr. Ovadia at iFix Hearts for more information and resources.

🍽️ Following a carnivore diet can be simple and effective for weight loss and reversing disease.

⏰ Fasting can be a useful tool, especially for weight loss, but it may not be suitable for everyone.

🥩 Dr. Ovadia emphasizes listening to hunger signals and eating until full, rather than forcing fasting.
