Reply to Kat Posted by: Ntombi | 2009/09/22 Okkkkk.... I' ve heard about something like that. A colleague of mine has lot a lot of weight and he mentioned something along the lines of his diet being structured according to the results of his blood test results.Thanks, I' ll google for some information. Reply to Ntombi Posted by: Slim-On | 2009/09/22 Ntombi..........Dr Cohen is a diet program where you get blood tests taken and then a diet is put together based on the results of the blood test. I paid R1500 excluding the blood tests which your medical aid can pay. The diet is very restrictive and requires a lot of discipline if you want to see results. It is a 12 week program and then you also get a refeeding program where they start introducing " normal" foods again. To give you an example in a day i can eat for Breakfast : an egg, 1 apple, veges and 2 provitas for breakfast. Lunch: chicken breast salad and 2 provitas plus 1 fruit and Supper: Extra lean beef patty, veges and provita. Also 2.5litres a day and a multivitamin. They have clinics all over Gauteng. Im not sure about the other provinces. Just Google Dr Cohen 1st Personal Diet and look for a clinic near you. Good luck Reply to Slim-On Posted by: Ntombi | 2009/09/22 Wow... wow... wow! I' m shaking as I' m tying this! I part of me is freaked out, wondeting if I' ll ever be able to do it... another part is excited about it!Can someone please give me more info on this Cohen diet? Reply to Ntombi Posted by: Slim-on | 2009/09/22 Kat. Yes i did. I follow it religously and also walk 3.5km x 4 times a week. I was given stats on the average weight loss for people on Dr Cohen who follow it to the T. Apparently its like this:1. In 4 weeks 10% of people lose less than 7kg.2. In 4 weeks 70% of people lose 7 to 10kg.3. In 4 weeks 20% of people lose 10 to 20kg.4. In 12 weeks 12% of people lose 17 to 20kg5. In 12 Weeks 60% of people lose 20 to 27kg6. In 12 Weeks 28% of people lose 27 to 35kg.I think i am in Category number 2.

Reply to Pally Posted by: Slim On | 2009/09/22 I have gone from a 40 down to a 34 top and 36 bottom. I am today wearing a stunning suit i have not worn in 3 years! I started my diet with Weight Watchers for 2months and lost 7kg. I decided to speed things up and 2 weeks ago i signed on with Dr Cohen and to date have lost 4kg. I am thinking of using Weight Watchers as my lifetime maintenance plan.
