Has managed me to do what I have been trying to do for years by providing sound advice and a good pl
I was aware of other people that had followed the same program with similar results so was confident I was in good hands. I was able to follow the program having achieved the right mind set. The preparatory meetings were good and the meal plans were straight forward and easy to follow. The level of detail as to what food was good and NOT good helped me a lot. One suggestion for better online support would be to provide an app so you can look up things while shopping for the right food and also for helping to choose appropriate restaurant meals. Otherwise with a bit of practice you are able to get into the swing of things fairly easily and stay the course. Looking forward to the re-feed.
life changing and fantastic experience
Being on the Cohens program was an eye opener, I learnt alot re: what foods were good for you and what foods werent. In total I have lost 115cm since starting the program. It was easy to follow the program and very user friendly. i highly recommend this to people who have a busy schedule and work shift work and cant find time to exercise. this truly did work for me.
Been life changing! Feel so much better.
I have tried many different weight loss programs or ideas but this has helped me tremendously.
its just taking me longer than initially thought, but loving the results.
Great support and enjoy the meal plans. Its giving me a life change focus on how little food you need to feel good.

I couldn't have done it without the support of my consultant
I was skeptical at first about the programme but knew I had to at least give it a go. After the first month I was hooked. My first month alone I lost a massive 20cm. My cm loss throughout this journey has been massive and my weight loss steady. The programme was very easy to follow and the support I received throughout my whole programme from my consultant on the coast was second to none. With determination and commitment I proved I could do this. Thank you Cohens!
You starve yourself AND pay for it
Yeah losing weight on this program happens. But you can do the same by eating 600 calories a day, without paying thousands. Yep, 550-600 calories a day and you'll be losing weight, friends, partners, and your mind no problem. You'll also be gaining a close friendships with your toilet, other Cohen's patients who flagellate themselves if you eat 1 cracker more than you should, and eventually - you gain all the weight back and more! Hooray what are you waiting for? Throw away your money, life, family and friends all to end up back at square one in about a year anyway!
P.S - I should have twigged when I met the Melbourne consultant - she's fat!
lose weight at a cost
I was at wits end with my weight and decided on Cohen's eating plan. My goal was set at 50kg over 6 months. I managed 45 but was told I didn't achieve the goal so would no longer be supported unless I paid more. However a regular colonoscopy showed the results of a diet severely lacking in fibre with my coleorectal surgeon aghast that an eating plan like this exists. Within three years i put back on all the weight plus an additional ten kg. One really needs to get their gp to sign off on this as Dr Cohen made no direct contact with me over the time frame to discuss the lack of fibre. My only contact was with front end staff who lacked support and understanding.
The program works remarkably well! Staff vary in supportiveness
The program is effective if followed 100% and is life changing. My health has improved tremendously. But it requires a complete commitment to a lifestyle change. Also it is very easy to put the weight back on and the body becomes very sensitive to food which isn't part of the program.
Ideal weight success
Followed the plan easily, had to be inventive with the limited range of food but the results were well worth the effort. I had support to follow the plan, i.e meetings, on- line and the provided resources. I would recommend this diet to any one that has tried all the other diets without success- this one really works!

Changes body, mind and health!
I did not expect to be this much more healthier and being able to wear beautiful clothes again. Following the program to the T was most important and easy. Cheating was not an option. Meal plan, online support and one on one support. Meetings and reminders of the important rules to stick with. Help when you feel lost.
Making food my medicine was the foundation to my new life!
From the free information session provided (where I went with a full A4 page of questions, which were all answered) at the start I knew Cohens was for me. I had the right mind set, the motivation and now the support I had been longing for to help me see it through.
I found the program very easy to follow, and I love the organisation of the meals. With food plans provided and a well written, easy to read handbook to guide me through I was able to work things out for myself however when I did have a question I knew my support person was only an...
A Proven Winner
My expectations were achieved, which is shown in the results I got. The weight loss has been steady and done healthily, after 12 weeks I have reached my goal weight plus a little more. I did my plan via online support as I am in a state that does not have a clinic. I found it very supportive, helpful and friendly. Thank you for helping me achieve my dream.
I feel like a new woman!
My expectations were to lose weight rapidly and my observed results were exactly that!
The program requires strict attention however if you are prepared and read the program properly before commencing it is easy to follow and once you get into the routine of it it gets easier and easier. It is difficult in the first few days to follow the diet as your body is detoxing and therefore you feel hungry however after this it is easy to follow as you don't experience hunger in between meals. I found eating the same sort of food boring after a few mo...

You don't need this weight loss program.. 'you will lose weight if you want to '.
I heard about this program and three years later, as a last resort, I did contact the Cohen's Weight Loss Centre and spoke to [name removed]. I was on holidays at this time and was able to meet with [name removed] the next morning.
Before meeting [name removed], I had read the on-line reviews and thought CWLC could help me, I have struggled with weight loss for many years. [name removed] showed me a picture of herself before the CWLC program and told me ' you will lose weight if you want to', I thought this comment should be followed with...''with our help'. I signed up and paid in full, I thought this was very expensive, and for me it was a ' last resort 'in terms of paying good money for such programs. I do not suggest you pay in full if you are considering signing up as you will see what it is all about and [name removed] will have no reason to call you. I took the first blood test and a few days later I received an email from [name removed] saying that the result came in and I am permitted to start the program. Being back at work, I was only available on Tuesdays, Friday afternoons and weekends. [name removed] would not make herself available to see me and insisted on sending the program information in the mail and she made quite a fuss for waiving the postage charges (showing $3.30 on the envelope), when I felt it was essential to the success of the program to meet with her to discuss any queries. The envelope included 6 months blood test results and a very old fashioned cook booklet and a welcome package. I delayed the start date twice due to illness, and [name removed] told me she was not going to restart the program for the second time, it had started. At no stage did she ask me if I was ok and ready to start. I wrote to [name removed] saying that I feel I had made a mistake, in that it appears I have simply paid for a diet cook booklet and I am now on my own, (and I haven't forgotten her comment : 'I'll lose weight if I want to' which now I understand - it is only up to myself without her help). The emails I feel are not personalized and I had the understanding the meal plans were based on the results of blood tests, but in fact, the blood tests are for electrolytes and it appears the meal plan is 'one for all'. This is a six month program and 3 weeks before the end [name removed] sent me an email asking for the first time 'what was my weight?' I replied telling her my weight to which she replied 'you have put on weight'. I replied that this program was of no help to me, as I told her in the beginning (I just paid for a booklet and there was no interaction, just reminders to have blood tests). I think you would have more interaction with someone from Light & Easy than I did from [name removed]. I told her I was going on an overseas holidays and that I would be back on the 6th June to which she called and left a message saying I could call her back if I wished to. I didn't see the point. I have not spoken to [name removed] since that first day.
Questions & Answers
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?
