Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre: A Celebration of Renewal

            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 theRed 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,” says 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. To know more, visit the Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre Philippines at Suite 1006, 10th Floor Medical Plaza Makati Building, Amorsolo cor. de la Rosa Streets, Legaspi Village, Makati City.  You may also log on to, email or call 502-1090, 501-5237.

Teaching My Kid to Socialize

Having a 1st grader is not all about school and no play at all. It is also important to have a well-balanced life even for a kid who’s 6 years of age.

I make it a point that my daughter still enjoys playing and having time to socialize with her classmates and friends. 

When she was a little younger, she used to be so shy. She usually got nervous when surrounded with a lot of people. She’s usually shy when performing on stage. Most of the time, she wasn’t able to perform at all due to this shyness. But that was 3 years ago. When she was still in Nursery Level.

Last weekend, it was her classmate’s 7th birthday party and she was invited along with some of their classmates. I was hesitant at first in allowing her to attend. First, because I have some unfinished work that day. Second, because I am not sure if I’ll be able to accompany her or not. 

But then I decided to allow her to join the party and to accompany her too.

Every laughing moment of my daughter was so precious for me.

Good thing I decided to let her go. She gets to socialize with her classmates and friends.

And honestly, I also enjoyed the party along with other moms that accompanied their kids at the party. :)

A happy, fun-filled bonding time with my daughter is not a wasted time at all!

Rihanna's 7th Album to be Released this November

Worldwide superstar Rihanna - the “#1 Person On Facebook” with over 61.7 million Likes - has once again ignited record charts around the world with “Diamonds,” the fastest-rising single of her career to date, with first-week postings at #1 on iTunes in 27 countries and Top 5 on iTunes in 55 countries.  Now, Rihanna announces the global release of her 7th studio album under MCA Music (Universal Music Philippines) in just seven years: UNAPOLOGETIC arrives in stores worldwide on Monday, November 19th.

Mikyla's First Dental Visit

It was one sunny Saturday when I decided that I would bring my daughter to a dentist for a tooth extraction.

On the way to the dentist, I was praying and hoping that my daughter won’t get traumatized after the extraction. For I know she have a very low pain tolerance. That the pain of injecting some medicine is just one of the worse feeling one could ever experience. 

The Dentist and I tried our very best to convince her to open her mouth, and she did the first time.

But after this photo below, we weren’t able to convince her. She felt the pain of the first injection on her gums. And she doesn’t want to open up her mouth. 

The good thing that time was, her tooth was loose enough that it’s enough to put a topical anesthesia and the dentist just pull it off her gums with less pain and blood.. 

You look so much like your dad talaga. Serious look baby! (Taken with Instagram at Dario’s Dental Clinic)
