From the Author

I wrote this book to share a world of science pertaining to obesity and metabolism that's not being talked about in the mainstream media.  I hope you find the information as interesting as I have.  My goal is to start a healthy conversation about the science of metabolism and how it relates to weight struggles that readers and their loved ones are dealing with.  
Thank you for your interest in this book.  All of the proceeds are donated to The Diabesity Research Foundation, a new non-profit organization I have founded, focused on Diabetes and Obesity research, education and advocacy.

She founded Seattle Performance Medicine, her clinical practice and also a non-profit group, The Diabesity Research Foundation (www.diabesityresearchfoundation.org).

Dr. Cooper's non-profit foundation promotes advocacy and education around the Diabesity epidemic by translating and disseminating the science of metabolism for public consumption. We believe that by advancing public awareness of the science of metabolism, widespread ineffective deprivation dieting and pervasive weight stigma will gradually give way to scientific solutions with potential to reverse the epidemic.

After three years spent going from doctor to doctor, our family finally found Dr. Cooper in February, 2013. Our hard-to-figure-out daughter was an 18 year old, three sport athlete who ate extremely healthfully yet hadn't had a menstrual period in three years and had to work incredibly hard to maintain her normal body weight. Her problem? A malfunctioning metabolic system with the very kind of glitches Dr. Cooper describes in this book. There is nothing she could've done in terms of eating or exercise to overcome her powerful hormonally driven metabolic system. She would've likely ended up struggling all her life with her weight, just like many of the patients Dr. Cooper describes. The good news is by focusing on treating and restoring her real underlying problem - her metabolic system - my daughter's life, both now and in the future, has been transformed. Gone are the days of careful eating, excessive exercise, worrying about weight, and no periods. It's like waking up from a bad dream!

This experience has changed everything I used to believe about weight, diets, calories, exercise and more (and I always thought of myself as someone who was up to date on the latest thinking about good health!) I'm grateful Dr. Cooper has written this book so anyone who struggles with their weight or has to work ridiculously hard to maintain their weight, like my daughter, can benefit from her scientifically based perspective. We've lived this and Dr. Cooper and her book have my highest recommendation.

Thank goodness we have Emily Cooper! She's possibly the only physician in North America who's not only had the "balls" to dive into the mega burly science of our metabolic systems, but had the courage to face the tremendous amount of resistance from the millions of voices preaching "Calories in, Calories out" thinking. For most people who want a quick fix, this isn't the book, or the doctor for you.... But if, like Neo in the Matrix, and you want to know the truth, this book is the BLUE PILL. There's no easy way around it, dealing with weight struggles and metabolic hurdles is scary business if you've ever been through it. If you are one of the MILLIONS who have been at a loss as to why, no matter how much you exercise or count calories, you simply don't lose body fat, you will find REAL, evidence -based answers in this book. It takes a physician / scientist who is brave enough to dive into the near infinite complexity of metabolism to lay it out, but more so, it takes patients who are also brave enough to face these problems the hard way: With science, not diets.

One more thing: We absolutely MUST change our culture and language around overweight and obesity. Calling people "lazy, stupid, and gluttonous" (even hinting towards it in research) is NOT helping to fix the problem. Its making it worse. If you read this book and still have the opinion that people who struggle with weight are somehow weak in the mind, you simply need to 1) Read the book AGAIN, and 2) Examine everybody in your life that you care about, because chances are that obesity is touching your own inner circles.

The information was very helpful in understanding why some metabolisms are not "playing by the rules". However, there was little guidance on what I could do for myself other than to go find a metabolic specialist such as Dr. Cooper - and we are on opposite coasts. However, I have been focussing on eating frequent meals with lots of low starch vegetables and have lost 8 pounds painlessly. Here is hoping that I can continue this way.

Finally a book about weight problems and metabolism, we who suffer with this problem have been on every diet. We lose a little then gain back even more. Everyone you know has a suggestion for you!

Walking would be easier if you just drop about 50 lbs. really, have you ever thought about how we feel as we diet year after year. Dr. Cooper has answers in her book. I am so happy to see someone that is actually working on the problem.

Thank-you Dr. Cooper for enlightening the world on this subject. Every health care professional, insurance company, chronic dieter, mother and daughter should read this book and understand the science behind metabolism. I sat up for half the night the day I downloaded the book, couldn't put it down, even though as Dr. Cooper's patient she had explained this to me, seeing it in black and white makes it more understandable. From the day I was 12 years old I had lost the same 20-40 pounds over and over and over. This cycle led me to the Atkins diet that shut me down completely, to the point if I started eating healthy vegetables again I gained 20 pounds. It wasn't what I was eating, my God I was exercising daily and taking diabetes medications, my weight never budged. Not until I got my Ghrelin, Leptin and MSH back into alignment did the pounds begin to fall off and I have never felt better in my entire life. So this is what normal is supposed to feel like. I've been robbed for 40 years of a normal and healthy life. Everyone who has struggled with weight, who has eaten the right things and still not been able to lose the pounds, AND THEIR DOCTORS should read this book. It doesn't happen for you, it's not a cheeseburger in paradise diet book, but will explain how the body SHOULD act when it is fed the right things, versus how some people's bodies react to foods and lack thereof.
