My daughter has food intolerances and I have been on your programme and the foods are sometimes not agreeable with her. Can she have a diet that is going to work for her?
How much is it to do the programme please?

I did Cohen's 15 years ago. I did lose a lot of weight but never got to my target. Over the years I have managed to remain within 5 kgs but over the last year I tried keto hoping to lose 5kgs then more to get to my target but that has not worked for me at all so tomorrow I'm going back to my 15 year old Cohen's plan.
I have a question...since being low carb/keto eating low fat feels wrong.
I'm going to eat Greek yoghurt for breakfast but not low fat...should I eat less? I'm really curious to see if it will make a difference
Hi Guy's, can we drink "Coke no sugar" or does have to be zero variety of soft drink.
I m a Cohen's from way back, just want to shed a kgs
How much does it cost?
For memory it was $350, we don’t have clinics in SA so they offer an online version, personally it’s as good as the real thing at half the price. It will change your life
I did the program years ago and had great success, but put all the weight back on with pregnancy/post pregnancy. I’m planing on using my old plan to help lose some weight and I’ve noticed in my allowed food list it says tofu, but in my prescription there is no line in any of the 3 meals that includes tofu. I never used to eat it so I didn’t even realise back then when I was getting the phone support. I’m wondering what measurements of tofu people have? Just to give me an idea - seeing as my plan is out of date anyway.
I have just started the Cohen's diet and on day 5. Today has been the worst for hunger and I literally feel starving and all I can think about is food. How long does it take to get used to the 5 hours between meals and such small portions ? I'm very worried I'm going to give up very soon because I'm so hungry and just binge . Please help
Generally by day 5 your body should be starting to get used to it Kristin. Make sure you are drinking the recommended amount of water and having your cracker & fruit allowance. Hang in there - it gets easier and your body adjusts. If you are really struggling, get in contact with your clinic and have a chat to them. They are very good with tips and support. Get through the first week and it will get easier. I kept my fruit allowance (& sometimes my cracker allowance) to have between meals. This helped. All the best. You can do it. :)
I did the Cohen diet over a year ago and was really happy about the result. However, I was not able to finish the program. I am trying to adhere to the program I had before but I feel like it’s not working out anymore. Should I sign up again now, would you give me the same program tgat you gave me before?
I am about to commence on my eating plan and I work permanent night duty. I am concerned about developing an eating schedule (times) and not always getting the required amount of sleep. Do you know of any other clients that have completed Dr cohens diet successfully who have also worked night duty?
Hi Susan, I did the program 10 years ago and lost 20kgs. I was working swing shifts at the time (5 days/4 nights) but still lost it all in 12 weeks. They key is being organised with your meal prep.
I gained about half of the weight back in the last few years (peri-menopausal), so got a new program early this year and am back to where I should be. The program is awesome and works wonders when you stick with it. No hunger, real and nutritious food and good support for the Cohens team. Good luck. Stick with it and you will reap the rewards. :)
Having a little read about Cohen's diet and how it targets hormones for obesity, I have adult acne (probably from my hormones) has anyone noticed their skin go better/worse on this diet?
In what year did Cohen's commence? It has been many many years since I commenced the diet but kept the diet plan. It worked for me and have been amused because my notes on the pages were: Yoghurt, hated it but have persevered to this day. I believe it was about 15 years ago however other benefits did occur from this diet in relation to my well being.
is it possible to have lunch or dinner option with eggs?
The meals are great. Yes you can have 1 meal per day with an egg option. you can choose either lunch or dinner.
Hi guys, I am at the end of week one and have lost 3 kg. I have 53kg to go and have been over weight for 11 years. I am wondering if thus is a diet with rapid weight loss that will create super loose skin. Do people dropping the large numbers typically get the scary loose skin on this diet?
When I signed up I stated that I would have tofu as 1 of the options in Meal 3, what is the equivalent as I struggle with tofu please?
What can I drink on this lifestyle plan?
6 cups black tea or black coffee max per day, 3 litres of water, no sugar diet drinks (coke zero, sprite zero etc) not a lot else especially no alcohol....
Great response Hayden ! No milk or milk products, no juices or any sugar. No booze either. I had Coke Zero and black coffee.. worked well for me. And lots of water >2 litres water a day. I didn’t miss the alcohol and you won’t once you get hydrated
