Obesity is a disease

It is not caused by gluttony. It is not due to a lack of discipline.
Obesity is a disease.

And like any disease, it requires treatment, not judgment. Willpower will not cure obesity.

How many times have you tried to lose weight on your own? Were you successful long-term or did you gain the weight back over time?


The Pound of Cure philosophy is based on the idea that our body weight is governed by an internal setpoint that works to keep our body fat stores consistent. Just like blood pressure, respiratory rate, and heart rate, our body has a robust neurohormonal system that works directly against our dieting efforts.

Any successful weight loss plan must result in a lowering of your setpoint, rather than efforts to fight against it. In order to drive significant, durable changes to your setpoint.

Hi, I'm Dr. Matthew Weiner

founder of Pound of Cure Weight Loss Center

I am a weight loss specialist and bariatric surgeon who has performed thousands of weight loss surgeries with outcomes that rank in the top 10% nationwide.

Along with my team at Pound of Cure Weight Loss, we have helped countless patients lose weight, keep it off, and radically improve their health and overall well-being through healthy eating following my proprietary Metabolic Reset Diet. The Metabolic Reset Diet was designed to help quiet the “food noise,” especially when combined with GLP-1 medications or Bariatric Surgery.

As you’ll learn from Zoe Schroeder, our in-house Registered Dietitian and my podcast co-host, the secret is not eating less.

The secret is in eating real food.

As with bariatric surgery and GLP-1 meds, the goal of the Metabolic Reset Diet is to recalibrate your setpoint to free you from the desire for the addictive chemical compounds deceptively marketed as “food.”

Our approach at Pound of Cure is practical and comprehensive.

We attack obesity by resetting your metabolism through a multidisciplinary, individualized approach.

The Secret to Weight Loss:

Lowering Your Body Weight Setpoint

All of us have a body weight setpoint. This is the place where our appetite and our metabolism are in balance. Many factors cause our setpoint to go off balance: medications, injury, menopause, genetics, but especially processed foods.

Dieting just makes this worse.

The answer is not to eat less. The answer is to eat whole, natural foods that bring your setpoint down. If you’re on the Metabolic Reset Diet and feeling hungry, you’re doing it wrong.

Lowering your setpoint is the Holy Grail of weight loss

Finding and properly treating the cause of your elevated setpoint is the mission of Pound of Cure Weight Loss.

Once you get started on the Metabolic Reset Diet, you’ll learn to love the food you eat.

You’ll naturally enjoy eating the satisfying, nutrient-rich foods your body needs without exerting willpower or feeling hungry or feeling overwhelmed by food noise.

You’ll develop a happy, guilt-free relationship with food once again.

Whether the answer is surgery, GLP-1 meds, and/or implementing the Metabolic Reset Diet, you’ll lose weight. Sustainably. And fast.

Break free with the

Metabolic Reset Diet

Even though I call my dietary weight loss program the Metabolic Reset Diet, it's really not a diet at all. Think of it more as a dietary rehab program.

We don’t ask you to eat less food. We want you to eat more food. But we also help you to eat less of the addictive, processed foods that are wrecking your health and causing your obesity. This is especially useful for patients who have had bariatric surgery or are taking GLP-1 meds and want the full benefits of their medical treatments.

Once you get started on the Metabolic Reset Diet, you’ll eat with more joy than you ever did when you were distracted by food noise. You’ll be amazed at the weight you’ll lose, the energy you’ll gain, and the overall improvement in your health and happiness.

Just the Nutrition Program!

Pound of Cure Platinum Program

Bariatric surgery is a remarkable agent of metabolic reset, which usually results in rapid weight loss. However, over time, some of the weight can return, especially after Sleeve Gastrectomy.

Weight Regain After Surgery is Treatable

To help post-bariatric patients maintain their weight loss or get back to their ideal weight, I created the Pound of Cure Platinum Program.

The solution to weight regain is multifactorial and often involves nutrition, modification of weight-gaining factors, GLP-1 medications, and occasionally, revisional surgery.
