5.0 out of 5 stars Finally, somebody who's in it for the science and wellbeing of her patients. Not for the shock factor of a new diet., September 8, 2013

This review is from: The Metabolic Storm: The science of your metabolism and why it's making you fat (Kindle Edition)
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.
