Whether we admit it or not, we all want to look our best all the time. Looking good does not exactly mean being skinny, but it DOES mean being healthy. In many people’s desperate quest to have a sexier body, they’ve resorted to pills and medications that don’t really work and are surely unhealthy. Others have deprived themselves from eating to get thinner, though it probably works, it doesn’t necessarily mean your body is healthy.

In the past year, I’ve heard of several diet programs. A bunch of them are really good and really work, one of these programs is the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program. Cohen’s Lifestyle Program is NOT about pills or food deprivation, instead, it’s about finding better and healthier alternatives for your meals. Moreover, it’s about finding the type of food that will work for you based on your blood chemistry – NOT your blood type as others assume.

Cohen Diet Program



Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre, the name behind the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program, seeks to get the message across: “There is nothing like the real deal!”

Addressing the rise of knockoffs spawned by the program’s huge popularity as a rapid weight loss solution, Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre CEO Barbara Young explains, “Success in losing weight can only be achieved through the tried-and-tested scientific, systematic, and sustainable approach of the real Cohen.”

Developed by Dr. Rami Cohen, an international specialist renowned for his research on hormones involved in obesity and weight loss, the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program encourages people battling the bulge to adopt a new lifestyle.

Based on every client’s unique blood profile, the Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre develops a personalized eating plan and teaches clients the right eating and sleeping habits to optimize the performance of the organs vital for metabolic processes. Without requiring exercise, injection, or intake of pills, the program delivers fast results, with clients averaging a loss of up to 8 to 10 lbs a month.



Since it is tailor-fit for an individual based on his kidney and liver profile, it is not as simple as having Cohen food deliveries, copying other people’s programs or attending cooking classes. While there may be initial weight loss, it is not sustainable and could even do more harm than good to the individual’s health.

“Not everyone can undergo the Cohen program. At the Centre, we do a comprehensive medical screening and coordinate with their primary physicians to see if our clients are suitable to do Cohen. Additionally, we monitor our client’s progress and blood parameters monthly so they can be guided accordingly.” explains Ms. Regina Chuavon, director of CLC Philippines.


Lifestyle change

The success of the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program does not stop at promoting weight loss. Even after graduating from the program, many clients have been able to maintain their ideal weight, by continuing to live by the Cohen principles.

Among its satisfied graduates is hair and makeup artist Jamee Padilla, who lost 71 lbs last year: “The Cohen program is different because it’s grounded heavily on the natural way of losing weight. It helps you get to know your body and teaches you to adopt a healthy lifestyle.”

Gerry Francia, a top exec from a petrochemicals company, agrees a lot about the shift, saying, “The program instills lifestyle change, which begins in changing my mindset. It was not food before me anymore, but my medicine.” He lost 75 lbs in 2013.

Meanwhile, Erika Avancena, who lost 104 lbs from her 232 lb figure last year, cites the program’s systematic approach: “There is a guideline to follow and as long as you stick to it, you will lose weight.” Like her, Elizabeth Abela happily talks about the fruit of her Cohen experience. Last year, she lost 29 lbs in three months: “It was not difficult to adopt at all. I just had to make sure my timing intervals between meals and snacks were exactly as prescribed on a daily basis.”

Eating right


For her part, businesswoman and socialite Digzy Umali gives praise to Cohen’s sustainability, after losing 65 lbs in 2010 and has kept it off until now: “The Cohen program made sure I had enough energy to function throughout the day without feeling weak or tired.”

She adds, “With Cohen, you are given an option to create your own menu and prepare your own food using a variety of vegetables, fruits, seasonings, and meat listed in the Cohen book. It taught me how to eat healthy and eat right.”

Joy Marcelo was pleasantly surprised that the Cohen program is not too hard to follow: “I guess when you are dead set then everything just follows. I loved that we had the freedom to cook what we want.” She shed 29 lbs in 2012.

In 1997, Roger Rosales was diagnosed with brain cancer and had to undergo cranial surgery and radiation therapy. “I was given steroids after the surgery to help with the swelling and I gained 30 lbs in two weeks and the weight has been adding on since.” Now he feels healthier than ever after losing 89 lbs from 246 lbs last year. He reveals learning how to look at food in a different way and eat more sensibly, because of the Cohen program.

Only through the real Cohen

By embracing a healthy lifestyle even after graduating, the clients will be able to maintain their ideal weight.

This kind of result, Cohen medical director Dr. Angel Bandola explains, can only be achieved through the country’s real Cohen: “With the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program, the hormonal imbalance causing the weight gain is addressed scientifically. You don’t get hungry or have cravings, which makes it easier to stick to the program. With the support and monitoring of the Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre, clients are taught the lifestyle to maintain a healthier body, so they continue to look and feel good.”

I have 2 friends who tried this program, one completed it last year and the other is currently doing it. The changes are AMAZING! It’s like every single time I see her, she’s losing weight. Bear in mind though that programs like this only REALLY work if you are disciplined and determined. As mentioned earlier, it’s not just a change in diet, it’s a LIFESTYLE CHANGE.
