A Pound of Cure by Dr. Matthew WeinerA Pound of Cure :

  • Reduces hunger and eliminates food cravings
  • Step by step approach to changing your diet and lifestyle
  • Emphasizing whole foods, primarily fruits and vegetables
  • No gimmick diet without shakes, pills, or prepared meals.
  • Customized, nutrient rich eating plans & recipes
  • One on one consultations and accountability
  • You won’t be hungry

When you look closely at the science behind weight loss and weight gain, we find that weight loss caused by starvation efforts is almost always followed by a slow gradual weight regain. Our program is different in that we make every attempt to avoid starvation, rather, you will need to “eat” the weight off. It is very likely that you will be eating more food over the coming months than you have in years, yet the pounds will melt away.

How it Works

Our weight loss program is based on office visits by Dr. Weiner or Mary Jo Oldford, N.P. Most insurance plans offer coverage for the treatment of obesity and its related diseases, however, for those who don’t have insurance coverage, we have affordable self-payment programs available. In addition to the insurance co-payments, there is a program fee, starting at $149 for a one year membership, including a copy of Dr. Weiner’s book, A Pound of Cure and the DVD Companion to the book that contains over six hours of video that further outlines the program. The DVD Companion is only available to patients in the program and is not for sale anywhere else.

The Pound of Cure program is very affordable compared to most commercial programs that are not run by licensed professionals and are based on old-school, ineffective calorie restriction programs. For instance, the average prices of some of the more popular diet programs are listed below.
