Book Description

At last, a breakthrough in nutritional science that identifies both the cause and solution of obesity, America's #1 metabolic disease. Using a lifetime of scientific achievement and clinical insight, Nobel associate and author, Dr. George Scheele, explains how to use nature's gift--Power Amino Acids--to avoid "addictive taste disorders"? and harness the body's own feedback mechanisms to tame appetite, rebalance metabolism, and normalize body weight. In The Obesity Cure Dr. Scheele shows that obesity is only one in a spectrum of metabolic diseases associated with the Metabolic Syndrome and accelerated aging. He demonstrates how the current "paradoxes"? of obesity and metabolic health prove that something "essential"? is missing in our current understanding of nutritional health and weight control. The Obesity Cure identifies the missing "pieces" as Power Amino Acids. These essential ingredients have the ability to correct deficiencies in the food chain, including positive-charged amino acids, proteins, and metabolic pathways that adversely affect satiety, metabolic health, and body weight. Without Power Amino Acids, the body suffers from protein deficiency syndrome,? a newly identified condition that limits the body's ability to regulate the satiety centers and metabolic pathways that control weight gain and loss. This book takes a revolutionary step beyond the high fat/protein diets of pioneers like Dr. Robert Atkins and the low fat/protein diets of public health policy. For the first time, we can now create a high-nutrient, low-fat, and low-carb diet that produces significant weight loss without resorting to starvation regimens that result in extreme hunger. The Obesity Cure reveals the breakthrough importance of supplementing the diet with essential, positive-charged, and satiety-producing amino acids (Power Amino Acids) that tame appetite and rebalance the metabolic pathways to burn fat and maintain normal body weight with the satiety feelings of comfort, satisfaction, and well-being. Power Amino Acids have additional benefits as well. By correcting the dietary deficiencies that lead to overweight disorders and obesity, they also ensure weight control, metabolic health, and revitalized youth. They are the "magic bullet"--the "secret"? if you will--for achieving the elusive goal of metabolic health and sustained weight control. The Obesity Cure further explains how Power Amino Acids may be incorporated into diets all across America to normalize body weight and combat chronic degenerative disease without counting calories, adding up points, or suffering constant hunger. With the purchase of this book you will receive instructions on how to receive a free copy of Dr. Scheele’s Primer on “Power Amino Acids: The Factor4 Advantage in Weight-Loss Success.

About the Author

Dr. George A. Scheele is a world-renowned physician, scientist, and author. He has enjoyed a distinguished career both in academic medicine and biotechnology by founding four biotech companies: AlphaGene, La Jolla Biosciences, Viral Shield, and NovaLife. As a board-certified internist and world expert in nutrition and metabolic disease, he was the first research scientist to separate all the proteins in the human body, now estimated at 20,000. Using this breakthrough technology, he discovered new concepts that "cracked the code" in understanding how Power Amino Acids® correct for the deficiencies in positively-charged amino acids, proteins, and metabolic pathways that restore normal body weight and metabolic health. These discoveries impact heavily on our understanding of the Metabolic Syndrome, which is associated with a number of chronic degenerative diseases, including overweight disorders; high levels of blood pressure, cholesterol, and sugar; Type II diabetes, cardiovascular disease; cancer (breast, prostate, colon, uterine); osteoarthritis; and kidney, liver, and gallbladder disease.

Whether you're at your ideal weight, or NOT, have had struggles in the past to maintain your ideal weight, or just want to feel better and exercise more, you really need to read this book. It explains with science, not hype, the formula for weight loss success, and the key to feeling younger and healthier than ever before.

I'm so glad Dr. Sheele wrote this book because my dad, his friends, my friends, friends of friends and I, have all been following his principals (including taking his power aminos) and I kid you not - we all lost fat without dieting. He taught us that when you're body has the right balance of nutrients, your food cravings go away, and you feel so much better you actually want to exercise. It's true!

Case in point: My 18 year old nephew just got rid of 20 lbs of pudge and looks better than ever, thanks to Dr. Scheele. He'd always been a picky eater growing up, living on peanut butter, pizza, chicken nuggets, and sweets, but as soon as he started on the power amino formula by the good doctor, he lost his cravings for junk food. My sister is happy he's now getting proper nutrition and will worry less about his eating habits as he goes away to college this fall.

My dad is another example. Thanks to Dr. Scheele's power amino formula, he started working out in the gym for the first time in his life at age of 67. He looks and feels better than when he was in his 40's, and his chronic back pain just disappeared.

One of my female friends also tried Dr. Sheele's principals (and factor 4 weight control) when she was at her lowest point both mentally and physically. It was not so much to loose weight, she just wanted to feel better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Engaging! August 25, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
The Obesity Cure has changed my life in the most dramatic fashion. In 6 months my body weight fell from 267 pounds to 201 pounds. That is 66 pounds lost for good. My waist was reduced from a size 44 to a comfortable size 34. I have never seen a product that loses weight this efficiently and a system that can thin-down or bulk-up at will! Others will find Dr. Scheele's formulation useful at [...]. Dr. Scheele's book explains it all...the toxicity of refined sugars and saturated/trans fats. It explains the physiology of the food chain and why vulnerabilities in the food chain can lead to metabolic disease, including obesity; high cholesterol, sugar and blood pressure; type 2 diabetes; cardiovascular disease; certain cancers; gallbladder disease; liver disease; and kidney disease. This book is so illuminating in a field of darkness, that it provides a beacon of light for all Americans who suffer from chronic disease. This book is a "must-read." It will change your life forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very healthful and useful book. Will save your life. August 21, 2011

I am a Professor of Molecular Biology, having published with several Nobel laureates including Francis Crick, Sydney Brenner and Sir Aaron Klug. When Dr. Scheele published his e-Book in May of 2011, I read carefully. Every single page provides critical information to fully understand how dietary foods can "make" or "break" body health. The Obesity Cure explains how a deficiency in positive-charged amino acids, proteins and metabolic pathways can lead to metabolic disease and further how Power Amino Acids can correct for these deficiencies improving overall body health. Power Amino Acids harness the body's natural feedback mechanisms to regulate appetite and body weight. I am thrilled that Dr. Scheele has published The Obesity Cure as it will help many, many Americans normalize body health and revitalize youth. In my view Dr. Scheele is the leading authority on diet-related control of body weight and metabolic health, particularly in learning how to create the proper distribution of blood amino acids. Accordingly, I recommend The Obesity Cure to everyone who wants to retain maximal control over the aging process and issues of health and longevity. I, also, knew of Dr.Scheele's research on gel electrophoresis, having been part of the lab which created gel electrophoresis and, also, his work at Rockefeller University, when Dr. Scheele was part of several research teams that won the Nobel Prize..

5.0 out of 5 stars Well-researched book September 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I came to know Dr. Scheele because I have suffered for years from high cholesterol and excess weight. Initially my cholesterol could only be lowered with Lipitor. However, I was unfortunate to suffer from the harmful side-effects of Lipitor, including the myalgia syndrome, sharp muscular pains 24/7. I had nowhere to turn. My doctor advised me to try protein powders and I tried every powder I could find. However, the only powder that worked for me was Factor4WeightControl, a high nutrient, low-calorie nutritional shake, containing Power Amino Acids that Dr. Scheele formulated several years ago (see [...]). Although I still have some muscle pain, it has been reduced by 70% and my need for Lipitor has dropped significantly. I am so grateful for Dr. Scheele's new discovery that Factor 4 is my constant companion. Now Dr. Scheele has explained his new technologies in THE OBESITY CURE, which is the most outstanding book on the market today. Not only does Dr. Scheele explain why we gain unwanted weight, but how to improve nutrition to lose unwanted weight without counting calories, points or suffering from constant hunger. But the breakthough does not stop there. It also applies to a long list of chronic degenerative diseases that associate with the Metabolic Syndrome and advanced aging, including hypercholesterolemia, which has largely abated in my life. Kudos to Dr. Scheele and THE OBESITY CURE.
