The Joys of Being a Cohen Mommy Press Launch

Friday, May 16, 2014

     The road to motherhood is not a smooth journey. Many women struggle in different aspects of motherhood like their identity, becoming a nurturer, a teacher and an inspiration for their children. We may think that when one becomes a mother, life will just be confided in the four corners of our home. Some women after giving birth just focus on the welfare of their family that's why they tend to ignore themselves- they become unaware of their physical appearance. In my experience, the number one problem that I encountered after giving birth is losing all the weight I gain during pregnancy. It's hard to lose post pregnancy weight especially when you cannot find the right diet and exercise for you. It may result into crash or yoyo diet if you have no idea what kind of food is right for you. So if you think you're in a situation what most moms worry about after giving birth, don't lose hope because Cohen Lifestyle Centre is here to help you lose weight by their diet program where Food becomes your medicine. Cohen Lifestyle Centre also helps women trying to conceive and treat obesity for you to become fit and fab moms and grand moms. Since this month is special for mother's like me, let me share with you the joys of being a Cohen mommy :) Click CONTINUE READING to see their testimonials about the Cohen Lifestyle Program

     Before the talk started, we were treated to a hearty and healthy lunch. I love the salad and the chicken with herb something dishes that was served to us. After eating, the first person who shared important information about weight loss, PCOS and conceiving was Dr. Angel.

    Motherhood is one of the greatest privileges that come with being a woman. But not everyone finds it easy to conceive, and medical science reveals that the risk for infertility especially runs high among the obese. The program started with Dra. Angel sharing her own story of weight loss struggles. She also discussed important points about obesity and PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) that's also another problem why some women are having a hard time to conceive.

     “Weight loss is the cornerstone in the treatment of obesity-associated infertility. Every 0.1 unit increase in the waist-to-hip ratio of women decreases the probability of conception by 30% per menstrual cycle. This is due to the imbalance in hormones leading to problems in ovulation, fertilization and implantation. In addition, obese women who do get pregnant are more vulnerable to pregnancy complications such as miscarriage, stillbirths, preeclampsia, and gestational diabetes,” explained Dr. Angel Bandola, an obstetrician-gynecologist at University of the Philippines-Philippine General Hospital and St. Luke’s Medical Center and Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre’s executive director. 



     Enter the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program, a rapid weight loss and wellness solution through nutrition based on a person’s unique blood profile. Through its holistic approach to beating obesity, the Cohen program has helped many aspiring moms lose the flab, experience the joys of motherhood, and stay in shape after giving birth. Without requiring exercise, injection, or intake of pills, the program delivers results, with clients averaging a loss of up to 8 to 10 lbs a month.

     The stories of “Cohen mommies” (women who credit the Cohen program for their successful pregnancy) often begin with disappointment and desperation, but end in pleasant surprise and profuse gratitude. 

A wish granted

     One such mom is Cheryl Alcantara: “We have been praying to get pregnant. My seven year-old daughter had been wishing for a sibling ever since she was four, with birthday candles, tooth fairies, or Santa Claus.”

     The wish was finally granted after she lost 51 lbs in six months through the Cohen program: her menstrual period became regular, and soon enough, she tested positive for pregnancy. And despite being over 35 years old and more prone to complications, she was cleared of hypertension and gestational diabetes.

Conceiving through Cohen

     Another Cohen mommy is Love del Rosario, 32. It took three years, two infertility specialists and several work-ups before she got pregnant with her eldest, especially since she was obese and was diagnosed with Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

     At 168 lbs, she found it difficult to conceive again. But through Cohen, she shed 58 lbs in less than six months. As soon as she reached her goal weight, she got pregnant: “I never thought it was possible for me to get pregnant without a fertility work-up!”

     Like her, Leah Alingog, 34, was diagnosed with PCOS before she got married, which led to great difficulty conceiving. But after losing over 20 lbs in three months, she got pregnant without going through any work-up.

     For her part, Imelda Acidera, then a mom of three, enrolled in the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program to lose the flab. But when she shed 32 lbs in four months, she was able to conceive unexpectedly, more than eight years after the birth of her third child. Now, she is on her way to being slim again, and has been conscientiously following the Cohen’s lifestyle to shed the post-partum fat, or the “baby weight.”

Feeling blessed 

     The gift of motherhood is one that Cohen mommies cherish every day. As Love shares, “I feel blessed being able to love them, and discover who they are, and be a witness to the kind of persons they will be. It’s one adventure after another.” Leah, meanwhile, says, “My favorite part of being a mother is the everyday learning experience with my baby.”

     As a bonus, the Cohen program has also been aiding Cohen mommies in losing the baby weight, by teaching them to watch what they eat. As Imelda explains, “Now, I know what food to choose and I have become more conscious of my eating habits,” adding that she had even acquired a more acute sense of taste, allowing her to truly enjoy every bite. 

     Finally, Cheryl says: “The Cohen lifestyle is about the discipline that we take with us even after the program. The meal plan teaches us about better food choices, thereby allowing these meals to be our medicine…I changed my wardrobe, bought nice-fitting clothes and started wearing heels!”

      By the looks of it, Cheryl, Love, Leah, and Imelda have not just become moms, but moms in great shape, thanks to the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program. As Dr. Angel shares, “Our mission at the Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre is to help people adopt a lifestyle change, to become better, happier versions of themselves. To be able to let these women experience motherhood, and retain their figure after giving birth, is such a great blessing.”

     Thank you so much Fuentes Manila and Cohen Lifestyle Centre for having me! So to all my mommy readers out there who have the same woes on conceiving, loosing weight and staying in shape after pregnancy, I highly recommend you to try this program. The results may take time but it's definitely worth the try because it's not temporary but for a lifetime!
