Cohen Cook-Off Challenge

Leave a Comment
Enjoying delicious food and losing weight can be contradictory ideas. At the recently concluded Cohen Cook-Off Challenge, I found out that this is not exactly true. Cohen's Lifestyle Centre showed the way to a healthy yet enjoyable lifestyle.

Before the start of the competition, the invitees were treated to a sampling of the products of the Cohen style of preparing food. The main idea is to "let food become our medicine". Not much fun living if we end up being sick because of our lifestyle and the food we eat. That idea therefore makes perfect sense.

The Competitors

Cohen's Lifestyle Center posed a challenge to its clients to come up with a meal that can be quickly prepared at home while facilitating safe and effective weight loss. Showcasing their original recipes were Mary Ann “Dr. Ianne” Tangcangco, 40, a physician who lost 35 lbs. on the program so far; Marian Remo, 30, a businesswoman who lost 16 lbs. to date; and Carrie Luis, 26, a freelance assistant who just started the program.

Cohen's Lifestyle Program

Backed by years of scientific and medical research, Cohen’s Lifestyle Program is a personalized and rapid weight-loss and wellness program that focuses on proper nutrition and uses food as medicine.

“The Cohen Program has a track record of success in delivering rapid weight loss using only food as medicine. We provide a safe, effective and scientific method of achieving a slimmer and healthier body, where all other methods may have failed,” said Barbara Young, Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre CEO and a certified life coach. 

“Cohen’s Lifestyle Program takes a holistic approach to losing weight. We don’t just guide you in losing weight but we also teach a healthier lifestyle, including cooking and eating habits and the way you look at food. You don’t need to be a chef to be able to prepare healthy, delicious meals. With a little bit of creativity in preparing food, losing weight can actually be fun. With the Cohen Cook-Off Challenge, we hope to inspire more people to take charge of their own health by getting involved in the preparation of their own food” Young added.

Healthy, Delicious, and Easy-to-Prepare

The Cohen Cook-Off Challenge just proved that we can actually enjoy healthy, delicious, and easy-to-prepare meals. We need not make it difficult to lose weight in having to do with bland food. Equipment needed may be readily available in our kitchens. Ingredients are widely available as well in local supermarkets.
