Welcome to my podcast. I am Doctor Warrick Bishop, and I want to help you to live as well as possible for as long as possible. I’m a practising cardiologist, best-selling author, keynote speaker, and the creator of The Healthy Heart Network. I have over 20 years as a specialist cardiologist and a private practice of over 10,000 patients.

Dr. Warrick Bishop discusses various health hacks to maintain cardiovascular health, including time-restricted eating and high-intensity interval training (HIIT). A study called the PLOS ONE study found that the combination of time-restricted eating and HIIT led to the greatest weight loss, improved body composition, and reduced LDL cholesterol and blood pressure compared to either intervention alone. Dr. Bishop also discusses the importance of understanding the association versus causation when it comes to elevated lipoprotein(a) levels, and how imaging can provide valuable insights before further testing. He encourages listeners to adopt healthy habits and share the podcast, as it may help save lives.


  • Time-restricted eating (e.g. 8-16 or 6-18 hour eating windows) can provide benefits for weight loss and cardiovascular health.
  • High-intensity interval training (HIIT) also offers cardiovascular benefits and helps maintain/increase fat-free mass during weight loss.
  • Combining time-restricted eating and HIIT appears to provide the greatest benefits, leading to more weight loss, improved BMI, waist circumference, and LDL cholesterol reduction.
  • HIIT helps preserve muscle mass during weight loss, whereas time-restricted eating alone can lead to loss of fat-free mass.
  • Fasting and exercise both reduced calorie intake across the study groups, even though exercise is often associated with increased hunger.
  • The combination of time-restricted eating and HIIT led to significant improvements in glucose levels and insulin resistance.
  • Elevated lipoprotein(a) levels are associated with increased cardiovascular disease risk, but individual variation in lipoprotein structure and function can impact its effects.
  • Imaging tests like coronary calcium scoring can provide valuable insights about an individual's actual cardiovascular risk, beyond just biomarker levels.
  • The podcast host, Dr. Orec Bishop, personally practices time-restricted eating and finds it helps manage his arthritis symptoms.
  • Dr. Bishop encourages listeners to share the podcast and leave positive reviews, as it may help save lives by spreading this health information.

Australia, like the rest of the western world, has a heart problem.

Over 9 million people around the world die from heart disease every year.

Every 10 minutes, someone in Australia suffers a heart attack. And 21 lives are lost daily because of it.

The devastating fact in all of this is… 

Almost every one of those cases could have been prevented. 

This podcast is for anyone who wants to improve their health literacy and gain information to help them make the best decisions about their risk of heart attack, their cholesterol, blood pressure, risk of diabetes, weight loss and general health. Join me on my personal mission journey to prevent Heart Attack on a global scale. If you like this podcast, I would be honoured by a 5-star review and appreciate if you let your friends and family know about this podcast; you may even save the life of someone you love!

Are You at Risk of a Sudden Heart Attack? How Healthy is Your Heart? Really?

Heart disease is the #1 killer in the Western World. In Australia, someone dies every 28 minutes from heart disease. That’s 51 people a day. In the US, someone has a heart attack every 40 SECONDS! Fortunately, many heart attacks are preventable. However, regular exercise and eating healthy are no guarantee you won’t succumb to this silent killer.

  • 94% of Australians have at least One Risk Factor for heart disease.
  •  59% of Australians have been Touched by heart disease.
  •  Yet only 3% of Australians have had a Full Heart-Health Assessment in the past 12 months.
