    Qué significa en español COPE UP ? :

    This results in the body not being able to cope up with even normal pressures exerted at various levels due to work or food and the net result is obesity and weight gain.

    Hi Maria

    I think it must be a mistake - it should be 'able to cope with', not 'cope up'.

    'Cope with' means 'aguantar' in this context, I think.

    Hope that helps

    Esto da como resultado que el cuerpo no sea capaz de aguantar/soportar ni siquiera una presion normal ejercida a varios niveles debido al trabajo o a la comida y el resultado neto es obesidad y ganancia de peso.

    I agree with Broccolicious, in my opinion they have mixed up to different phrasal verbs with the same meaning:"put up with" and "cope with" (aguantar, soportar).
