Garth Davis (born January 28, 1970) is an American physician, surgeon, and author. He is best known for his book "Proteinaholic: How Our Obsession with Meat Is Killing Us and What We Can Do About It", in which he argues that eating too much animal protein causes people to be overweight and more susceptible to certain diseases, such as diabetes and cancer. He advocates for a plant-based diet, and advises people stop eating animal products. He and his father Dr. Robert Davis were the stars of the reality television show Big Medicine, which explored the effects of bariatric surgery on obese patients. He is also featured in the documentary What the Health. Davis worked for several years as the medical director of bariatric surgery at the Memorial Hermann Memorial City Medical Center in Houston, Texas, but currently works for the Mission Health System in Asheville, North Carolina. Davis is a certified member of the American Board of Surgery.
