What makes Dr. Cohen's Program and his work so unique?
This Program is unique because it is based on your blood test results. Your Eating Plan is a specifically tailored Program for your body's needs and will work for you the best. It is based on many years of research and a data bank of many thousands of programs and their results. Dr. Cohen is a specialist not only in the field of nutrition but also in fertility and hormones.
What do your services include?
Dr. Cohen analyses your blood test and based on your blood profile, prepares a Program that will help your body rid itself of excess fat, without making you weak or hungry. This is achieved by using the food in your kitchen, with no additional cost for special and expensive food supplements or pills. Furthermore, throughout your Program, we will support you with any issue or concern you raise. When you are close to your body's natural goal weight Dr. Cohen will prepare an individual Refeeding Program for you. The Refeeding Program will take you off your Program gradually and ensure that the weight you lost is lost forever. We will then go through some Management Guidelines with you.
Is the Program calorie based?
No. The specific food types, quantities and combinations Dr. Cohen prescribes are what are important.
Is this a high protein diet?
No. The Program consists of food from all the different groups. It is a balanced Eating Plan.
Why are blood tests necessary?
Your Program is based on your blood test results, not blood type. The blood tests allow an analysis of certain aspects of your system which in turn indicates what is required to get your body hormones back in balance. This approach therefore designs a treatment unique to your requirements and it will 'trigger' your HGH and result in weight-loss and other health benefits.
Must I exercise while on the Program?
No, if you do not exercise now do not start, especially if you are very overweight. You can start when you are healthier, but always in moderation. If you do exercise at present, we recommend you continue, but in moderation. Listen to your body, if it hurts or burns or your appetite increases dramatically, you are doing too much exercise and rather cut back just for the short period that you are on your Program.
Can I give my Program to my family and friends to follow?
Your unique Eating Plan will not "trigger" another person's body into correcting its imbalance. It may well cause even more imbalance and illness! Also, in some cases of 'copying' we have come across people who have initially lost weight, but gained it very rapidly when going off the Program. Once again, because the treatment was not meant for them and as a result their HGH had not been 'triggered'.
How do I know how much weight I need to lose?
In the same way that a 'general diet' is not ideal for your body, a general 'Weight Calculator' cannot determine your exact target weight. You can work out an approximate goal weight on our Goal Weight Calculator, however your body will give you signs when it is at its natural goal weight and this is when you are at your metabolic equilibrium and ready for the Refeeding Program.
What is the Refeeding Program?
The final stage of your treatment is called the Refeeding Program. It takes place at the end of your Program where the body has achieved 'balance' and you have lost the fat/weight. This 2 to 4 week Refeeding Program is when the so called 'bad foods' are re-introduced and portions are increased without 'shocking the body'. You are also given healthy Management Guidelines that will prevent you from starting the cycle of the 'Obesity Syndrome' again.
There are many 'diet fads' today. Why should this be the one I do?
In most cases the clients who come to us have already tried everything. You are free to choose, but the many thousands of successful clients Dr. Cohen has had over the past 25 years, is ample proof that this is not another 'diet fad'. Dr. Cohen's Program is based on an internationally accepted medical research and sound facts. It stimulates the hormones with specific food combinations and quantities, so that the body starts burning its own fat and uses the food you give it properly. The body corrects the chemical balance naturally, so there are no synthetic elements in the Program - Everything is based on your body, its current profile and basic food to become healthy... Your food becomes your 'medicine'. It is a simple, inexpensive solution to a complex, and sometimes lifelong, problem!
