Jean Michel Cohen is the French diet doctor who says all we have to do is cook more meals to lose weight and cure obesity. Did you know that the French cook more meals at home and are slimmer and healthier than North Americans.

They  have an obesity rate of 16% compared to our 34%. Cooking in our homes have fallen to half since the 1960’s and coincides with the rise in obesity and chronic diseases. Dr. Cohen believes that when you cook you think about the ingredients that you buy, chop, heat and eat.  You are in control unlike eating processed fast food.  And cooking itself promotes healthy eating. It helps if you cook with lots of fresh vegetables and high-quality protein. When corporations cook for us we’re eating food substitutes filled with fat, sugar and salt.
