Could losing weight be as simple as flipping a switch? Absolutely! According to Dr. Robert Cooper—one of America's leading independent scholars on weight loss—the secret to slimming down lies in what he calls the Meta-Stat, an area of the brain that regulates your metabolism.

The trouble with most popular diet-and-exercise plans is that they fire up your Meta-Stat for only short spurts. The rest of the time, your body is in fat-storing mode. But if your Meta-Stat stays on 24 hours a day, you burn fat constantly—and build energy, too.

In Flip the Switch, Lose the Weight, Dr. Cooper reveals scientifically proven strategies that enable you to turn on your Meta-Stat and maintain optimum metabolism all day long. Want to maximize your body's fat-burning, energy-revving potential? It can be as simple as sitting in bright light, practicing deep breathing, improving your posture, or maintaining a cool room temperature.

Beyond these and other metabolic "switches," Flip the Switch offers:A satisfying eating plan that emphasizes the right foods, in the right amounts and combinations, at the right times of dayAn all-around workout that combines aerobic exercise, strength training, and stretching for optimal Meta-Stat function—and requires 20 minutes a day, topsStarter programs that direct you to key switches that will jump-start your weight-loss effortsAn exclusive "success map" to chart your progress toward your goalsMore than 100 delicious recipes, all designed to fuel your Meta-Stat for maximum fat burning and energy boosting
