Emily Cooper, M.D., is a Seattle-based physician, board certified in Obesity Medicine, Sports Medicine and Family Medicine. After years of treating patients with weight problems, Dr. Cooper realized diets fail long term and often initiate even more weight gain. Turning to science, she discovered 100 years of research on metabolism that is accessible but not taught in medical schools. With The Metabolic Storm, Dr. Cooper shares scientific information that eliminates stigma, brings hope and explains why obesity is a medical problem, not a potato chip problem.
This is not a diet book. It’s a book about the pure science behind why diets don’t work for the majority of people. Forget everything you have ever heard about dieting and being overweight! The Metabolic Storm addresses the science that obliterates those myths about diets and weight gain.
