A Pound of Cure

Dr. Weiner’s new book is now available!

The Pound of Cure weight loss program was developed by Dr. Matthew Weiner, a Bariatric Surgeon who identified a nutritional approach that can replicate the favorable changes to your intestines, your fat stores and your brain that are seen after weight loss surgery.

My answer to years of struggle with morbid obesity.

When I stick to the program the weight loss feels effortless. I never have to feel hungry or deprived and I feel that everything I eat provides the true nutrition that my body has been craving my whole life. I truly feel like my metabolism is working better now.

I have my life back

It is truly the real deal to weight loss and great health. I am losing steadly 2 pounds a day. I feel free because I can’t really mess this up.

Please keep up the excellent work!

I’ve not come across another program that shows how hormones influence hunger and why the calorie-in/calorie-out starvation diet models don’t work. I knew it had to be something else at play!


After 52 years in this earth I now understand how to eat, feel better, and lose weight without being hungry.

Five Stars

Outstanding, insightful and simple plan for eating to nourish your body!

I have been on the eating plan for 3 weeks, lost 48 pounds

No atkins, weight watcher, jenny craig or yoli pyramid scheme diets. You don’t have to pay a lot of money for calorie restriction just to watch the weight return when you stop or can’t afford the food. This is the eating plan to follow.

This Works!

This eating plan definitely works! Please note this is not a diet, it’s a life style change! I saw weight loss results in the first 4 days.
