This is NOT a diet book. Forget everything you have ever heard about dieting and being overweight! Emily Cooper, M.D. has 25 years experience and is board certified in Obesity Medicine, Family Medicine, and Sports Medicine. She has worked with thousands of patients who have previously followed every conceivable deprivation diet and exercise program, yet their excess weight doesn't stay off and their health doesn't improve long term.
In this new, expanded edition, Dr. Cooper presents science that obliterates myths about diets and obesity. She explains that the metabolic system is not only a complex system in itself but profoundly affects other body systems such as reproduction and fertility. The Metabolic Storm explains why weight issues are not the result of laziness, lack of commitment, or absence of willpower. It introduces the breakthroughs and answers discovered, but never properly disseminated, through more than 100 years of scientific research. Once you understand the metabolic system, you will never want to diet again.
The new edition contains more self-strategies, additional information and dozens of new illustratrations. Additional patient stories help readers understand that they are not alone in their struggles and that the science of metabolism brings great hope!
