It’s a common assumption that losing weight and keeping it off is all about calorie counting and portion control.

After all, it makes sense that if you cut back on how much you eat, you’ll see a lower number on the scale — right?

But then why can some people, despite their activity level, eat a substantial amount of junk food and manage to stay thin while others who have a relatively low caloric intake suffer from obesity?

And why can it be so difficult to lose weight yet seemingly so easy to pack on the pounds?

Those are questions that hounded Matthew Weiner, M.D., a weight loss surgeon at DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital.

But no longer.

DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital Obesity Expert Launches New Approach to Healthy, Long-term Weight Loss

Dr. Matthew Weiner releases book, “A Pound of Cure: Change Your Eating and Your Life, One Step at a Time;” outlines new 12-step process

Commerce, Mich. January 7, 2013—DMC Huron Valley-Sinai Hospital’s Obesity Expert, Dr. Matthew Weiner, has pioneered a new approach to changing a diet for more effective, long-term, healthy weight loss. In his new book just released, “A Pound of Cure: Change Your Eating and Your Life, One Step at a Time,” Dr. Weiner outlines a 12-step process to promote a renewed focus on what to eat, instead of what not to eat.

Through his seven years of experience and success treating patients, from slightly overweight to morbidly obese, Dr. Weiner drew inspiration from his patients’ success stories to identify options for patients at any weight, and 12 dietary changes that teach patients how to lower the setting on their “metabolic thermostat” and that weight loss is not about fewer calories, but good calories.

“With all the debatable diets promoted during the start of weight loss season, it’s important that patients are encouraged to learn sustainable eating habits; starvation is not the answer. Eating fewer calories is not an approach that will work long-term,” said Dr. Weiner. “My patients and I learn together what makes them obese, what options they have, and we work together toward the completion of 12 diet changes to provide nutrition to your body with good calories, lower the setting on your metabolic thermostat and ultimately change the content of your diet for long-term, healthy weight loss.”

A Pound of Cure is available now on Amazon. For more information about weight loss options or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Weiner, please visit or call (248) 413-2670.

Detroit Medical Center surgeons are nationally known for developing and performing innovative weight-loss procedures – bariatric surgery – on men and women who are at least 100 pounds overweight, suffer from related health conditions and have unsuccessfully tried other weight-loss methods. DMC bariatric surgeons use many different surgical techniques to help morbidly obese patients lose weight, regain health and take control of their lives.

mjw--in-office-2014Matthew Weiner, MD, FACS has released his highly anticipated book, A Pound of Cure, Change Your Eating and Your Life One Step at a Time.   

Oakland County MI – After much anticipation throughout the local medical community, Dr. Matthew Weiner has released his first weight management and nutrition guide book just in time for those New Year’s resolutions.  Dr. Weiner’s book challenges the traditional advice of “eat less and exercise more” as well as our understanding of why people lose and gain weight.

Dr. Weiner, a bariatric surgeon, has identified a style of eating that can bring about the same metabolic changes seen after gastric bypass surgery. The shifts in your metabolism that allow post-surgical patients to lose 100’s of pounds without hunger can be obtained by following his program.   The style of eating outlined shows you how to use food to control hunger, eliminate cravings and prevent a slowdown in your metabolism that plagues typical starvation diets.

A Pound of Cure is a step by step guide that shows you how to change your style of eating sensibly, over time.  It includes Dr. Weiner’s Metabolic Reset Diet and many delicious recipes that are easy to prepare and will keep you satisfied. The plan is ideal for anyone looking to lose anywhere from 5 to 500 pounds which makes it a perfect choice for families, friends and coworkers to do together.

If you are tired of fad diets and the commercial diet industry that peddles artificial, synthetic diet foods as healthy choices, the Pound of Cure plan will show you how to eat sensibly, control your hunger and lose the weight for the rest of your life.  Dr. Weiner explains, “the idea that weight gain is the result of eating too many calories does very little to explain our nation’s obesity epidemic.  Rather than just focusing on eating fewer calories, we should be focusing on eating lots of good calories in order to cancel out the effects of the bad calories.”

APoundOfCureMatthew Weiner, MD is a weight loss surgeon who lives and practices in the suburbs of Detroit, Michigan. He performs gastric bypass, gastric sleeve and gastric banding surgery as well as offering non-surgical weight loss assistance in his practice. Dr. Weiner completed his medical degree from the University of Michigan and did his residency training at New York University. He is passionate about nutrition and its critical role in our health and well-being. He is an avid tennis player and happily married father of two little girls.
