“Cohen Diet” , or the The Diet of Dr. Jean-Michel Cohen is built on a principle – eat everything but in small quantities and increase energy expenditure, so you that you lose weight.

   No wonder there is sanity somewhere in the Weight Loss world. So he explained his program, deliberately avoided the word “diet”.

For Dr. Cohen is important that each person with weight problems, has to “reprogram” how to eat right and select  meals and to eat with optimal quantities of it to avoid frustration.

Brief summary of the Cohen Diet:

  • An Individual Program, based on international research which was started over 25 years ago in the USA, Europe and South Africa by Dr Cohen and his Research Partners.
  • Dr Cohen assesses, monitors and deals with each client’s Eating Plan personally.
  • The Program is called a “Rapid Fat and Weight Loss Program!” It helps the client rapidly reduce fat and overall weight in a safe and healthy way, while it firms the muscles, tones and shapes the body!
  • It is not a calorie based, neither a high protein diet. It is a balanced Eating Plan and you do not have to starve yourself on the program!
  • No exotic foods are needed. You may eat all types of food on the program, including various types of red/white meat, fish, vegetables, fruit, dairy products such as cheese and yoghurt etc.
  • No “injections” or “tonics” or “pills” are involved… your food becomes your “medicine” so food quantities and combinations become very important.
