Good weight loss programme
Easy to follow plan. Good variety of food. Looking forward to buying skinny clothes and not having such a bulky suitcase for when I go away on holidays. Enjoying my walks again without having to struggle to get up the hill in the park.
The Cohens program teaches you what your body actually needs and how to function at its best. It is easy to follow and the food does leave you feeling satisfied, as long as your heads in the right space.
It’s taught me so much about myself and what foods my body responds best to.
Return Cohens Advocate
This is my second Cohens programme, I easily lost 15 kilos in 2008 after many years of long lunches and ample wines! I lived the Cohens lifestyle for several years & was trim, fit and full of energy, until I fell pregnant - at 40! Most of you will know that your kids come first for several years, so my increased weight after having my daughter sat with me for 8 years. Fast forward to 2019 & I embarked on the onlineCohens programme in Feburary. 15 kilos fell off me again, just like before. Energy levels increased after 1 month & bloating stopped. Im a horse rider & the difference its made to my strength & stamina is fabulous. Its healthy, simple, real food in controlled portions. I can highly recommend Cohens, if you follow it - it works, its that simple. Its now a longer term lifestyle lifestyle choice of mine again.
Fabulous program - great results. Lovely supportive team.
Awesome program that works wonders! The food was sufficient and I was never hungry. Program is straight forward and easy to follow and works if you stick with it. My challenges were many social functions and I travel a lot for work and don't always have the option of preparing my own food. Even with all my challenges I was able to achieve great results, albeit a little slower than I anticipated. Extremely happy with my results, feeling healthier, lighter and more energetic that I have in a long time.
I felt satisfied after every meal. Not really needing more afterwards
The program was specific and it gave me the confidence to follow it exactly because there were no "grey" areas.
Just a fantastic program!
I have never ate more healthier than I have now! Was not hungry, I learnt to be more organised when planning my meals. The weight came off and I feel lighter and just healthier. Thanks Linda and Dr Cohen! Thanks for the new me :)
A highly questionable program
I signed up with Cohen's 15 years ago and I can see from the negative reviews of others that Cohens have not changed their extremely questionable practices. Cohens put you on a low protein starvation diet which causes weightloss through muscle wasting. I followed their program to the letter, complained repeatedly about not having enough to eat - to which Cohen's insisted they were right and refused to adjust my program. I got to their stated goal weight after losing 40 kg and I looked skeletal, loose-skinned, unhealthy and disgusting. When my GP said I was catabolic (aka muscle wasting) I did the math and calculated that the protein allowed on the program was well below the RDI. When I confronted Cohen's with that fact they didn't answer my email. You will be paying for a highly unsound program after which the weight will return in spades. I am extremely surprised to read so many positive reviews. I was on the program for 7 months. Save your money and your health: here is free information on how to lose weight and improve health permanently: (1) heal your gut. A lot of obesity is due to gut inflammation and nutrient malabsorption which leads to cascading health problems and constant cravings (2) Change the fats in your diet to good fats: coconut oil, olive oil, pure dairy butter, and grass-fed free range meat, organic meat if you can afford it. The point here is to avoid inflaming your gut and system again. Having changed to good fats, you do not need to worry about fat or so called fatty foods ever again. Do the research on this for yourself. Cholesterol is not the issue it has been made out to be and has nothing whatsoever to do with dietary fat (3) Add probiotics to your diet, preferably home-made, eg kefir, kombucha and sauerkraut. These will help you to extract all the nutrients in your food and will make more nutrients for you (4) Eliminate or drastically reduce sugar and refined carbohydrates and starchy vegetables like white potato. This stuff is damaging stomach-filler with no nutritional power. Also be careful of conventionally grown grains which are gut-inflamers due to the herbicides used in their cultivation and harvest.
i am kicking myself for not joining sooner.
The first week was the hardest, and to be honest, it was only two days in the first week, I felt an emptiness in my stomach. Different feeling to being hungry. The program itself was easy to follow, especially with the help of the recipe booklet. I managed to lose a kilo a week.
"I Can't believe it"
The program was so easy to follow and there were few occasions where I felt really hungry.
I reached my goal weight in 12 weeks and is one of the best things to happen to me.
I feel fantastic.
Would highly recommend this program to anyone.
This program has detailed easy to follow program of healthy and nutritious foods that are satisfying. Most importantly you loose weight and stay healthy. I highly recommend this lifestyle to anyone who wants to use food to loose they excess body fat.
The programme was excellent, I rarely felt hunger at all, I enjoyed the food, the programme was easy to follow.
Wish I knew about Cohen's 20years ago!
I honestly feel like I eat more now than I ate before, just different things. I love my meals. I have actually felt quite nurtured by the program. The focus is not just weight loss, but satisfaction as well, and that has made it all possible for me to continue. (Of course there's no greater satisfaction than dropping dress sizes on a regular basis!!)
It is never more than 2.5 hours before you can have a meal or a snack, so that's totally doable, and of course you adjust to it and it becomes habit and gets easier. When I was approaching goal weight, I was really hungry, but reassured when I was told this was a sign I was ready for phase 2.
It sounds counterintuitive, but I just don't focus on food so much anymore. I have come to realize it's no big deal if I have something different in my glass/ on my plate; its the person you're engaging with at the time that matters.
It's such a release and relief! My family of 6 are now all eating much healthier meals after what I have learnt. If I or anyone else in the house starts putting on any weight inthe future, I know I have the tools to overcome that. I really wish I had found the Cohen's secrets 20 years ago.
My whole life has changed. I have adopted a more simple, outdoor, minimalist, wholesome lifestyle, not consuming as much in a material sense, realizing how much more I had consumed than I needed. My house has been totally decluttered, and I have decided to return to study. I am eternally grateful to Dr Cohen and my awesome amazing friend and consultant Sunee. I have been given hope and a future.
From the bottom of my (now much healthier) heart, thank you so much!!!!
Excellent easy to follow and stay on track
The Cohens program is Very easy to follow. I had no problem keeping on track even when I travelled. Easy to follow receipes which were delicious and varied. Would recommend.
I got great results
I heard about Cohen's on Light FM and signed up at the information session raring to go. I learned how to eat healthier and stuck to the program so I got great results. I feel more energetic and happy during the day. My friends have noticed how well I look, and I would recommend anyone to try this program.
Left feeling tired and weak.
Goal weight as identified by Dr Cohen ridiculous as higher than where started program.
Would not recommend.
The best decision I have made!!!
Initially, sticking to the program was challenging. I found it helpful to be organised and plan my meals in advance. In actual fact, that was and prob is the key to success. In addition, I requested regular follow up phone calls from my consultant. My consultant, was amazing! Alison, supported and encouraged me all the way even when I didn't stick to the program 100% especially when I under huge amounts of stress. So, Thank you Alison for helping me achieve my weightloss goal
Feeling great physically and mentally
Can't believe 6 months has gone by! Love doing Cohen's. Initially hard to do, because I loved chocolate, lollies and alcohol, but after 4 weeks I could see the results and I felt so good. My consultant kept me informed and encouraged me along the way. Honestly, though it is up to the individual to make sure they stick to the plan. Heading into the re feeding stage, I am so proud of myself, and I have gone from having no water throughout the day, to now drinking up to 3 litres a day. Recommend Cohen's to everyone, it does work!
Dr Cohen's changed my life
When I first started I felt hungry but just ensured I drank enough water, a few months on I don't feel hungry anymore. I have reached my goal weight as I stuck to the program 100%. Once I was in my routine the weight just dropped off.
Diet is good, Canberra office is terrible
I found the diet itself worked, was easy to lose weight on and I was not hungry. The customer service in Canberra office however was useless. After an initial meeting the correspondence was all via email unless a meeting was requested. Anytime I suggested a time it was never suitable for the staff so I had to make it another time that suited them. The cost for the diet was extremely high so I expected better customer service and not automated emails for support and guidance.
The only food lifestlye management tool you need!
I was surprised at the quick results with this program. Whilst at times I would be frustrated as I wanted to eat a greater range of food, I was never hungry on the program and it was simple to follow. Towards the end it was hard as the goal was so close and you have to remind yourself why you are on the journey and what the end will bring - new lease on life!
