Racing enthusiast discovers the fast road to fitness

Sportsmen are motivated to keep a healthy weight, knowing that ones weight is a big factor in winning any sporting competition. Race car drivers, in particular, need to stay light to be able to drive their vehicles faster. But for 52-year-old businessman and automobile racer Eric Valera, this motivation was heightened after seeing his flabby body on TV after winning the STV Auto Rally Corporate Challenge in November 2013.


“I was so embarrassed with how huge I looked when I saw my pictures on the podium and while being interviewed on TV, he shared. I was also suffering from weight-related health issues, like hypertension, high cholesterol, and trouble moving around.

I felt heavy and was scared for my health, he revealed.

Eric was no stranger to health and fitness programs, having tried several diet and workout plans in the past. Unfortunately, none of them worked for him: I even ended up consuming too much protein on one program. Wary but determined to lose weight, he asked about safe and rapid weight-loss alternatives from friends and associates. They advised him to try the Cohens Lifestyle Program.

The Cohens Lifestyle Program is a rapid weight loss and wellness program devised by international specialist Dr. Rami Cohen. It is individually prescribed based on ones unique blood profile and uses food to correct the imbalance of hormones that cause weight gain.

A few days after my embarrassing TV interview, I called the Cohens Lifestyle Centre to enroll. I received my eating plan early January, and I immediately plunged into the Cohens Lifestyle Program, he shared. He followed the program by heart using a winning mindset: I conditioned my mind before starting the program, and surprisingly, I had no trouble sticking to the eating plan even when I had to give up many of my favorite food.

Eric weighed 238 pounds when he started the Cohens Lifestyle Program, but his weight loss was fast and dramatic that he already felt the changes after just 4 months: On our next (STV Auto) Rally in May 2014, I had already lost 50 pounds despite spending a whole month in Europe. I was so happy that aside from once again being crowned champion, I also looked better than before. My friends and associates couldnt believe how much weight I lost in so short a time. Comparing my pictures of the two events was like seeing two different persons.


Now, Eric maintains a healthy weight of 165 pounds. I have become more confident and happier with how I look. My medications for hypertension and high cholesterol were also stopped.”

“I’m happy to say that as of today, Ive been able to maintain my desired weight by eating healthy and exercising regularly, he said. “I havent had rice, alcohol and sweets for two years now. As they say in Cohen, Its not a diet, its a lifestyle change.’”
