    Default Anyone done Cohens?

    I was just wondering if anyone here has done or is doing the Cohens diet.
    I started just over a week ago and have noticed alot of differences already, so I jumped on the scales this morning and have lost 7 kilo's.
    It is a specially formulated diet for overweight and dare I say it obese thats were I fit in.
    It is very strict but am not finding it as hard as I thought. I even have bought DD McDonalds and didnt try and eat her chips a usual past time for me.

    I havent done it personally but I know a couple of people who have, one who lost a huge amount of weight. My only advice would be very very careful once you stop, because you have come off such a strict eating plan (and I know you go through a re introduction to normal eating) it can be very easy to put the weight back on. But well done on such a big lose to start off with.

    LOL that was me too.
    If you goodle cohens lifestyle it will all be before your eyes.
    As I said it is strict and as ali mentioned there is a process you need to complete at the end to help not to regain the weight.
    It was pricey but DH and I are hoping as a side effect is fertility as it was designed by a doctor that was a cardio specialist and then moved to gyn -obst fertilty that it may actually save us some money as well as making me healthy. It is all in relation to seratonin and HGH.
    There is an office in Geelong Riss, I have just been out for dinner and hopefully havent made to much of an error. My aim is to get off 40 kilos in at least 6 months aiming at 4.

    No probs Lucy,
    It was 680 plus a blood test that goes to Dr Cohen to determain your allowances which isnt rebatable thru medicare but was 18 or so. And you have repeat blood test 4 weekly just to check and help plan what they call refeeding where they introduce sugars and fats back in when you hit your goal weight. Day 10 ~ 8 kilos loss
    I have done all the WW and the Jenny Craigs this has been far the easiest my dinner is easier than DD and DH and its all fresh that I bought.
    Wat can I say I am a believer

    Thanks Bec......do I gather then, that you have to eat quite different foods from the rest of your family?

    Not really mine has to measured to the gram thou so they can eat the same but mine usually goes on the health grill rather than in the frypan or oven. If you are a pasta loving family I do have to eat alittle different.
    So most days I love yogurt for breakfast which is easy with kids, or an egg and tomatoe and mushies.
    A salada for morning tea
    Tuna and salad for lunch
    Apple
    Another salada for afternoon tea
    Chicken or beef with either vegies or salad
    A piece of fruit.
    Its all weighed to the grams and originally I thought I was going to starve but the research that has been done shows that by eating protiens 5+ hrs apart and no carbs eaten within 2.5hrs ohh and 4 litres of water well 1 for every 25 kilos. I dont get hungry nor the cravings and the best thing although it is rapid due to the kerotis sp the Human Growth Hormone being triggered helps with not having saggy skin.
    All the girls at my clinic have done or are doing the program and lost on average 30+ kilos each it is inspiring.
    Its just really hard not to pick up the left overs from a toddler and put it in your mouth a serial offender here
    They have information sessions that are not obligational which tell you all the details and I have found our grocery bill has gone down (amazing for a diet).
    I tend to have an afternoon to shop weigh and freeze my meat into snap bags and then defrost and cook if it was just me it would be a breeze cause it is so quick. Where DD and DH tea is the same as usual cooking that I would normally do.

    Well done on your weight loss! That is amazing.

    My MIL did Cohens a couple of years ago but unfort for her all the weight came back on slowly once she stopped. She is known tho for yoyo dieting if you want to call it that, in otherwwords she trys all sorts of things which are successful but once she stops the weight goes back on.

    I do remember her tho always weighing out her chicken breast on the kitchen scales and she used to eat differently to the rest of us whenever she cooked us dinner (but my FIL is a very traditional, fussy eater so that wouldnt have helped her).

    Good luck with the rest of it!!
