Two weeks ago I attended a free consultation at the local Cohen Lifestyle Change Clinic. Summarized, it is a diet based on your blood tests. They screen for the following: HGH/Insulin/Serotonin. I was seriously considering paying for the program ( approximately $1400 for a 6 months ). Since it is a considerable amount of money - I thought to do more research online. I found the 1stpersonaldiet website and saw that they were affiliated with the local clinic I went to. It was very surprising that the website was offering an online program at $250 for 3 months or $500 for 6 months (just 1/3rd of the price I had been quoted for). I tried contacting their consultants and gave them the same info I gave the clinic here. Their response was to this effect-
We are sorry but Dr. Cohen has decided that you are not eligible to be on this diet. We could not find any existing client/data that matches yours. It would be best to try to find another diet more suitable to you.
It didn't make sense to me. If it is highly individualized - what does finding other clients have anything to do with my profile. I was hoping to find a diet that works - not like I was trying to hook up with anyone. Matching profiles indeed.
However, a relative of mine did subscribe to this program and has lost 50 lbs in 2 months. This is with minimal exercise.
Has anyone tried this diet too?
