“It’s Not About Willpower”


t Pound of Cure, we believe that everyone deserves an individualized approach to weight management. We base our set point lowering weight loss program in research, not dogma. Studies show that weight is not determined by willpower, but instead by a hormonally-regulated defense of your body’s unique metabolic set point (the weight your body works to defend).

The Pound of Cure Weight Loss Program is designed to lower your set point using a combination of nutritional counseling (using Dr. Weiner’s Metabolic Reset Diet), cognitive behavioral therapy, recipe/life hacks, online education and weight loss medications. GLP-1 medications like semaglutide are powerful adjuncts to a healthy diet and lifestyle and are used frequently in the Pound of Cure Weight Loss Program.

Maximizing Your Body’s Ability To Lose Weight

Dr. Matthew Weiner’s Research

Dr. Weiner leveraged research that demonstrates that weight loss surgery works primarily by creating favorable hormone shifts, rather than blocking eating or calorie absorption as we previously believed.  Dr. Weiner identified the changes in his patient’s nutritional preferences after weight loss surgery and recognized that they were driven by these hormonal shifts that result in post-weight loss surgery patients selecting the foods that cause the most weight loss.

The Pound of Cure weight loss program is based on these observations and allows anyone to change their eating habits to maximize your body’s ability to lose weight.
