    My Cohen Diet

    Okay, so I just saw in my Inbox this ad from CashCashPinoy about a certain Dr. Cohen Diet for only P990. I was very very shocked when I saw this because I knew I paid about P60,000 initially for my Cohen Diet plan. My Cohen Diet was developed by Dr. Rami Cohen. The CashCashPinoy Cohen Diet is by Dr. Jean-Michel Cohen. The Dr. Rami Cohen Diet is very popular here in the Philippines because celebrities swear by it and people see the actual results from real people they know. And people also know how expensive it is. My fear is that when the growing online shopping market sees a “Dr.…

    3rd Month Cohen Diet Report

    Woot! Another 7.6lbs lost this month! Also met a law school friend (hubby’s office mate before) at the lab today and she mentioned about the Cohen Lifestyle Centre forum page. I guess I’ll be joining the group then. Anyhow, I’m really glad to know that some friends are also in the program and are actually losing weight while on it. The diet is really on the pricey side and the initial outlay still doesn’t cover the monthly blood tests. But imagine like 26.6 lbs in 3 months! That’s the best freakin’ way to spend money which could otherwise have been spent on a Louis Vuitton/Prada/Mulberry bag! The bag can wait…

    Cohen Diet: First Month Report

    photo not mine Wow, has it been a month? 🙂 Well, it’s more than a month since my last post. Part of the reason why I haven’t been blogging is because I don’t have anything to write about except about my Cohen diet which, most probably, will bore you to death. So, last August 8 was my first month weigh-in and blood test in the Cohen program and guess what 🙂 I lost 6 kilograms and the stats in my blood exam (sugar, creatinine, potassium, sodium, etc) also dropped. I also lost a total of 14 inches off my arms, chest, waist, hips and thighs. Some of you might say…

    Cohen Day 4 – 07.14.11

    Hurray! I survived Day 4 and for me, it’s already an accomplishment 😛 According to the Cohen program, it’s most likely that I will feel hungry during the first four days but after that, my body will get used to the system and going through the plan will be a breeze. Fortunately, I completed the first four days without major problems except for constipation which is an expected side effect. I’m hoping that my water intake will take care of it but it looks like it couldn’t so I have to take some medicines. This is only a temporary side effect and it’s all caused by the diet. So, other…

    Cohen Day 3 – 07.13.11

    Effort is only effort when it begins to hurt.  ~José Ortega y Gassett From my acupuncturist’s clinic the other day, we passed by Tomas Morato and I was amazed at the line of restaurants left and right. It’s like the whole stretch is swamped with cafes and bars and restaurants, all offering a variety of dishes. As I sat in the car looking into those restos, I had this moment where the diet is slowly sinking in. I am not gonna be experiencing any of that deliciousness in the next 4-6 months. That’s not a long time really but if you have been doing that all your life, with cooking and…

    Cohen Day 2 – 07.12.11 and 3rd Acupuncture Session

    It’s my 2nd Cohen diet day today. There’s a strong temptation to give up. My breakfast was okay but there’s this resentment building up. I painstakingly finished my lunch. If it’s any consolation, I’m beginning to like my snacks more than my main meals. I have to find a way to stay determined. I figured I should change meals tomorrow. So, instead of tuna, beef and chicken, I’ll be having eggs and shrimps 🙂 Here’s what I had today: 6:30AM Meal 1 – tuna with cabbage + 1 Coke Light + 700ml water 8AM – Acupuncture herbal tea 9:30AM Snack 1 – Skyflakes fit (cracker allowance) + coffee allowance +…

    Yuck!

    May I just say that I absolutely love the Cohen diet because I don’t feel deprived at all but the acupuncture herbal tea is totally YUCK. As in YUCK by metes and bounds compared to the other types of tea I didn’t like. I don’t like the smell, the taste, the color, and the lumpy texture. I don’t like everything about it. It makes me wanna puke (sorry, gross). But what can I do? It’s prescribed by my acupuncturist (take note, the specific herbal tea I’m taking is not prescribed by Cohen although they allowed it because it’s all natural and non-flavored). I super can’t stand it anymore, I’ll just…

    Cohen Day 1 – 07.11.11

    The race is on. Well, it’s technically not a race because I am only competing with myself. But I feel like I am racing against time towards reaching my target weight in less than 6 months. I want to reach it earlier so that I can move on to the “refeeding” stage of my diet plan 🙂 Today is my official start date for the Cohen diet and here’s what I had today: 7AM Meal 1 – tuna with cabbage + 1 can Coke Light + 700ml water 8AM Acupuncture herbal tea* 930AM Snack 1 – Skyflakes fit (cracker allowance) + coffee allowance + 1/2 apple + 700ml water 12NN…

    Pre-Cohen Diet Day 1 – 07.07.11

    As I’ve told you in my other post, I enrolled with Cohen’s Diet. Based on my initial blood exam and consultation, they’ve set my target weight and to help me achieve that, they provided me with my personalized eating plan. The entire plan is copyrighted and because I respect intellectual property, please do not expect that I will post about the details of the plan here. Besides, it’s a personalized plan made just for me based on my blood test. So instead, I’ll just be giving a broad idea of what the diet is about and how I am faring with my personalized plan. Some of you might find it useful in…
