A celebration of renewal from Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre!!!

Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre celebrates the personal battles won and healthier lifestyle gained by the Cohen graduates with Re: New Me 2012.

Carrying the theme “Fit for the Red Carpet”, the event celebrates the successful transformation of the Cohen Program graduates through a fashion show and photo exhibit that showcase their new fit and slimmer bodies as well as their renewed, healthier lifestyle. Likewise, the event brings together the entire Cohen community– from graduates, non-graduates, medical professionals, and health and wellness advocates alike. 

     According to Barbara Young, CEO of Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre, the fashion-inspired event is dedicated to the graduates of the Cohen program. “These incredible men and women have successfully lost weight, which may be impossible to some. This achievement is worth recognizing because they not only gained confidence from having bodies worthy of being seen in the red carpet, but more importantly, they acquired new outlooks in life after overcoming their weight and health issues. This is their time to shine,” say Young.

     The Cohen Program was formulated by Dr. Rami Cohen, MD, a specialist renowned for his research on hormones involved in obesity and weight loss. It is based on internationally-accepted medical research with thousands of success stories worldwide. 

With the Cohen Program, Dr. Cohen personally develops individually-tailored Eating Plan. Each plan is based on a person’s unique body chemistry. This personalized eating plan is designed to trigger the body’s natural ability to shed off fat rapidly and safely and bring their hormones back in balance.

No two Eating Plans are the same. The essential formula is the specific quantity and combination of food unique to each person. And only by following the program precisely can one allow their body to correct its chemical imbalance naturally.

Another unique offer of Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre is the establishment of a Cohen Community– graduates who have successfully completed the Cohen Program and non-graduates who are still on the journey to healthier body and lifestyle. Both share a similar experience of what it feels like having gone through a challenging ordeal. Hence, they build a support system that encourages and inspires each other to persevere and stay on the program.

     “Completing the Cohen program requires discipline and patience. This is why we established the Cohen Community– to provide our clients who are undergoing the program the support and encouragement from people who have gone through the same program and understand the challenges that they face,” adds Young.

Re: New Me 2012 is presented by Splenda and sponsored by Mosvit, Other sponsors include Ayala Land Premier, Lady’s Choice MayoLite, Pond’s, Pioneer Life Insurance, and Bulla Lite n’ Healthy Yogurt.

The Cohen program is exclusively offered in the Philippines at the Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre.

Alden Richard’s best look!!!

After the hits teleserye One True Love, GMA Artist Center talent Alden Richards now takes on a new challenge. He was recently part of the Cosmopolitan Bachelor Bash 2012. But along with his boyish good looks came a lot of hard work and preparation. Because as we all know, failure to prepare is preparing to fail.

Physically, his aim was to be the best-looking Alden Richards his fans could be truly proud of. His trainer’s goal for him was to lose excess fat, beef up his upper body, and maintain good posture. This was achieved through a rigorous daily routine of 15-20 minutes of jumping rope as often as he can, even in-between taping schedules.

Aside from that, he made sure to incorporate 20-30 minutes of running in his routine for additional cardio. To develop core strength and fitness, Alden supplemented his workout routine with abdominal exercises. This includes 20-30 reps of hanging leg raises, abdominal rollers, ball crunches, planks, pikes and side bends. 

Months prior to the event, his personal trainer and nutritionist limited Alden to a calorie intake of only 3,100 kCal per day. This meant that he had to eat 5-6 small meals per day, spread out over 2-3 hour intervals. This diet was not only about losing weight but also being healthy. A complete balance of protein, carbohydrates, fruits and fiber was recommended, while at the same time avoiding soda, ice tea, and salty chips. This diet also required him to stay hydrated throughout the day. But to make things fun, he was allowed one “cheat day” to eat anything he wanted. Because he wanted to stick to his new lifestyle, he made a conscious effort to stick to only one cheat day per week. This was quite a sacrifice for the young actor, but he discovered that it was well worth it when droves of fans cheered for him at the Cosmo Bachelor Bash.

Alden is committed, passionate, and disciplined in anything that he does. It not only shows through his breakthrough roles and performances, but in every aspect of his life.
