"Diet Programs And Meals - The Doctor Cohen Diet"

The Doctor Cohen Diet was created by Jean-Michel Cohen, a French medical nutritionist. This diet comes in two versions, the fast diet allowing 900 calories a day and the comfort version that allows 1400 calories a day. With the rapid version you may lose 6.5 to 9 pounds (3 or 4 kilograms) every two weeks. With the comfort version you may lose 9 to 11 pounds (4 to 5 kilograms) per month. Don't follow the rapid version for a period of several months. Here are some of the principles.

There are no forbidden foods. Manage your diet yourself, for instance eat when hungry. Combine fiber, protein, and sugar containing foods with on your plate. Vary your food, including fruits and vegetables. Stay away from sugary and alcoholic drinks. Yogurt should always be sugarless and fat free. Eat lean meat and your choice of fish or seafood. Try to replace cheese with eggs or yogurt. Don't eat too many eggs, and egg whites are better than egg yolks. Make sure to enjoy lots of soup; this is one way to consume more vegetables. Many people will appreciate the principle that suggests not feeling guilty should you stray once in a while.

The 900-calorie version of the Doctor Cohen Diet has the advantage of rapid weight loss. The 1400-calorie version is balanced; it includes foods from each of the food groups. A disadvantage of the rapid version is that breakfast is not substantial. And it doesn't contain starches.

Here are two sample menus: Menu 1 (900-calorie version) Breakfast: Tea and a sugarless and fat free yogurt. Lunch: Green salad with fresh lemon. 125 grams (less than 4 ounces) of grilled, skinless chicken. A serving of spinach. A yogurt. An apple. Supper: Tomato salad with basil and lemon. 125 grams of grilled sole. A serving of zucchini. A yogurt. 200 grams of strawberries.

Menu 2 (1400-calorie version) Breakfast: Coffee. Two crackers with 10 grams of margarine and 25 grams of cheese spread. A yogurt. Lunch: A green salad with dressing. 125 grams of salmon. A serving of ratatouille. Two kiwis. Supper: Broccoli soup. 125 grams of lean ground beef. 100 grams of pasta accompanied by mushrooms and zucchini. 25 grams of hard cheese, preferably French Mimolette, with a maximum of 50 percent butterfat. An apple.

Some of the information in this article comes from a fascinating new book, La Bible des Regimes, written by Jenny de Jonquieres and published by Amerik Media. Her book describes more than 80 diets and weight reduction programs. Each diet is presented with 5 menu plans, a detailed discussion of its advantages and disadvantages, and lots more. La Bible des Regimes is at present available in French only.
