When doctors are in good shape

We like our dentists to have a nice set of teeth, and our fashion consultants to be well-dressed. In the same way, studies show that we are more likely to trust our doctors if they are in a good shape themselves.

Because of this, doctors often face enormous pressure to serve as the epitome of wellness. Drs. Rico Donato and Joel Lutana, both graduates of the rapid weight loss and wellness solution called Cohen’s Lifestyle Program, know this too well.

Obesity and illness
Dr. Rico, an Ear, Nose and Throat (ENT) Head and Neck surgeon, used to weigh 257.4 lbs. The 44 year-old father of three also suffered from hypertension, and was diagnosed to be borderline high blood sugar. Her wife, who is also a doctor, was naturally alarmed.

Meanwhile, Dr. Joel, 43, weighed 206.8 lbs. Aside from noting that he did not look pleasant, the anesthesiologist shared why his excess weight concerned him, “I have a family history of hypertension diabetes and heart disease.”

Both attempted to lose weight. Dr. Rico took slimming pills and went to the gym with a trainer, while Dr. Joel tried “almost all fad diets.” These all failed.

The Cohen program
Upon the prodding of his wife, Dr. Rico signed up for the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program. Developed by Dr. Rami Cohen, an international specialist renowned for his research on hormones involved in obesity and weight loss, the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program encourages people battling the bulge to adopt a new lifestyle.

Based on each client’s unique blood profile, the Cohen’s Lifestyle Centre prepares a personalized eating plan and teaches clients the right eating and sleeping habits to optimize the performance of the organs vital for metabolic processes. Without requiring exercise, injection, or intake of pills, the program delivers fast results, with clients averaging a loss of up to 8 to 10 lbs a month.

“It is different because it trains you to act differently towards food, how to eat healthy and not overindulge or binge. That is what distinguishes it from fad diets – you can maintain a healthy lifestyle after the program,” explains Dr. Rico, who lost 77 lbs 8 months into the program.

A healthy healer
Like Dr. Rico, Dr. Joel credits Cohen for his transformation from an overweight doctor, to a healthy healer. He lost 57.2 lbs in the course of 4 months, and is keen on dropping more.

 “I am happy and proud with the results,” he said, adding, “The likelihood of me inheriting my family history of illness is now lower.”

Dr. Joel also thanks the Cohen’s Lifestyle Program for instilling in him a strong sense of self-control and discipline, revealing that while going through it was difficult at first, seeing the results was inspiring: “Once my clothes became bigger because I was getting smaller, that motivated me to continue.”

Dr. Joel Lutana lost 57.2 lbs in the course of 4 months.

For his part, Dr. Rico shares that after the program, his blood pressure and blood sugar levels have normalized, allowing him to stop taking any medication. In addition, he now enjoys a more active life. He shares, “I have more energy now and doing sports is lighter.” And a great bonus is that his friends and loved ones say he looks ten years younger.

Now in a better shape to serve the sick, Dr. Rico and Dr. Joel both plan on recommending the program to their own patients who are struggling with their weight. After all, they know that it works!
