Have you been made to feel it was your fault when you could not lose weight? It is likely that you did not fail at dieting; your diet failed you. This book is for everyone who has tried other diets and failed. Dr. Cohen explains why bad weight-loss diet advice, worsened by changes in the food industry, is responsible for the worldwide obesity epidemic. His answer is an effective, natural diet, based upon a modern computer model, yet confirming weight-loss principles first described more than 2,000 years ago by Hippocrates, the physician considered to be the father of rational Western medicine.

The author Irving A. Cohen, MD, MPH is a Fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine. He is trained and Board-Certified in Preventive Medicine and Public Health. He formerly served as Chief Resident in Preventive Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University, Bloomberg School of Public Health. In the past, he has been associated with the departments of History of Medicine as well as Preventive Medicine at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City. He currently directs Preventive Medicine Associates and previously provided voluntary services for the uninsured at the Marian Clinic, both in Kansas. He has helped many people who had thought they could not lose weight and other who had suffered from poorly-controlled diabetes and its consequences. He has made presentations about the basis of his diet at national and international scientific forums and literature.

"I have read every diet book out there for many years, searching for answers. I finally found my answers and a diet that works in Dr. Cohen's book! Well written, easy to read and understand. Best of all, it works!"

"Thank you so much for all your help and knowledge that led me to lose over 160 pounds after the age of 50. I will always be grateful to you! !"

"I hate diets. Suffering and deprivation is not something I do well. After being diagnosed with severe sleep apnea, it was clear the extra weight had to go. Bariatric surgery was not an option I would consider, soooo what to do ? I was advised that Dr. Cohen was advocating a low carbohydrate diet that goes beyond popular diets such as Atkins. The alternative serious weight loss programs in town were expensive calorie based programs that wanted me to buy their expensive diet food. Suffering and going broke seemed a bad idea. I chose Dr. Cohen and his diet which is published in this book. It is a serious, scientific, yet practical approach that makes sense and is easy to both monitor and execute. In approximately 18 months I lost 112 lb and I am still losing. I am never hungry. You can test easily with ketone strips to see if your body is in the fat burning mode and adjust accordingly. It helps to eliminate temptations around the house."

"My husband's favorite thing to tell other people about me is that for 15+ years of our marriage, every two weeks, I introduced a different diet. At one point, he was ordered [to take] the dangerous "Fen-Phen" to lose 100 pounds to have heart catheterization done; the table would not hold his 400+ pounds. So, to say we have tried it "all" is an under-statement! We were known as the "yo-yo" people, and that was not a compliment but instead showed how we could not maintain any kind of reduction plan for weight loss. I am so glad to share that all this has changed. When I investigated Dr. Cohen's Hippocratic eating plan, which my radiologist offered, I found a plan that was strict but worked for me and my husband. We have completed twenty-four weeks and both been successful. I have lost 36 pounds and Gary has lost 94 pounds. Both of our weight losses have been documented. For the first time, I witnessed my husband's weight at less than 300 pounds. Gary's physicians are elated about this progress. He has cut his diuretic in half per his attending physician's order, and he has reduced the diabetic medicine from 5 different ones to basically 1 medication. His cardiologist told him his cardiac status improved so much he does not need to see him for nine months instead of the three-month schedule he had become used to. You can imagine our excitement that we have done well!! Yes, the plan is strict, but certainly worth any struggle. We now both consider this a life-style and not a temporary treatment."

Is Type 2 diabetes reversible? For many, the answer is yes.

Diabetes is a serious disease and must be treated as such. Many Type 2 diabetics have come to use Dr. Cohen's New Hippocratic Diet ® for weight-control and found that it brought their diabetes under better control than it had ever been before. Most were able to reduce or eliminate diabetic medications. Dr. Cohen cautions that diabetics on medication will need to monitor themselves closely and be in communication with a physician when starting this plan. Although the weight-loss is important, most diabetics following this plan saw changes as soon as they started, so they must prepare in advance for medication reduction. For those in earlier stages of diabetes and not yet on medication it is even easier. This includes people anywhere on the Type 2 Diabetes spectrum, whether the Metabolic Syndrome, Pre-Diabetes, PolyCystic Ovary Syndrome or simply those at high-risk. This book expands Dr. Cohen's New Hippocratic Diet ® with a focus on information specifically for those suffering from Type 2 diabetes and for those individuals and families at risk. This is not a temporary solution, but a plan for life.

The author Irving A. Cohen, MD, MPH is a Fellow of the American College of Preventive Medicine. He is trained and Board-Certified in Preventive Medicine and Public Health. He formerly served as Chief Resident in Preventive Medicine at the Johns Hopkins University, Bloomberg School of Public Health.

He currently directs Preventive Medicine Associates and previously provided voluntary services for the uninsured at the Marian Clinic, both in Kansas. He has helped diabetics bring their disease under control while they also lost weight. He has made presentations about the basis of his diet at national and international scientific forums and literature.

Professionals discuss using the New Hippocratic Diet ®for Diabetes Recovery:

"I am a type 2 diabetic. I was diagnosed about three years ago. Nearly all of my relatives on my father's side have diabetes. I have already lost one cousin to the complications of diabetes. I had tried cheap diabetic medicines as well as expensive ones and only had a moderate improvement. I had a formal exercise program with a trainer and still my numbers did not improve significantly. I attended one of Dr. Cohen's seminars at a medical continuing education program and thought, 'Well, this is a different twist on what I have always been told.' So, I got the book, spent a weekend reading it, and enrolled in his program. It has been over a year; my A1c improved to below 6.0: I lost about 25 pounds and my cholesterol improved. All without any medication. I have maintained my A1c without any medication from the first day. I feel much better keeping with this eating plan and I am more active. This is an eating habit, not a diet."

Cheryl West, ARNP-C, Family Nurse Practitioner

"The patients I have referred to Dr. Cohen or suggested his diet to are mostly either Type 2 Diabetics, or women with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. Many of the patients also had hypertension. In every single case, the diabetics were able to get off all or most of their medications for diabetes or if they weren't on medication already, they never had to begin and their blood sugar returned to normal. Most people with hypertension were also able to reduce the amount of medication they take for hypertension. Dr. Cohen's diet makes so much sense. It really is a new way of looking at food and diet and the best part of it is that it works!"

Ximena Garcia, M.D., Internist

"Dr Cohen's New Hippocratic Diet has provided me with an invaluable tool to assist me with patient care in my practice. As a nurse practitioner coordinating a Women's Health Program, I have successfully utilized his diet as an essential component in caring for women who suffer from obesity, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, and insulin resistance. Those following the program have improved dramatically and many no longer need medication to control their conditions. I initiated the diet for myself three years ago, lost 72 pounds and dropped my cholesterol level almost 100 points. I have maintained my new weight for 2 years. This diet has given health and hope to so many who have previously met with failure time after time."

Mary T. Stewart, ARNP, Nurse Practitioner

"I am thoroughly impressed by Dr. Cohen's approach to natural weight management. As a Pulmonary-Sleep doctor, I have a significant portion of my population that is morbidly obese. These people have multiple medical problems, including problems with lipids as well as diabetes. My patients have demonstrated tremendous benefits, occasionally losing 100 pounds between six-month visits. They have done this safely and quickly. I highly endorse the results, and more than anything endorse Dr. Cohen's approach."

William Leeds, D.O., FAACP, Internist and Pulmonologist

"Billions of dollars have been spent educating the public about the dangers of drug and alcohol addiction. despite this, the powerful vortex of addiction continues.Cohen looks at the profile of the addict, the addiction and the drug to explain the roller coaster syndrome that traps innocent people. This book is recommended reading for anyone dealing with an addiction or trying to help an addicted person."
"Good, decent people get trapped by addiction...(we) need to join with others around us and demand effective addiction prevention, detection and treatment for our nation.... Cohen offers his intelligent and heartfelt book to that purpose."

Audrey DeLa Matre
Steps for Recovery


"Dr. Cohen ...has detailed the variety of intimate experiences of seven people who illustrate the subtleties of addiction... Only an excellent clinician can crystallize a broad and inclusive teaching experience in such a precise and specific manner."
