Dr. Sean O’Mara was an emergency medicine physician. In that role, he treated people from all walks of life. And it was obvious, even the wealthiest people failed at being healthy.
Despite being a doctor, he wasn't in good shape himself. In addition to being overweight, he suffered from several other chronic health issues.
A patient confronted him about his weight and introduced him to the paleo diet. That's all it took for him to realize how much impact even a small change in diet could have on overall health. His medical training utterly failed to prepare him to understand the changes that he experienced from changing his diet.

He became a researcher for the purpose of learning more about how to reverse chronic disease. He found that there is nothing more effective at eradicating chronic disease than visceral fat as a biomarker. He believes that the availability of knowledge on how dietary lifestyle changes reverse chronic diseases will significantly help his patients and the healthcare system.
