Default Immitation of the program or does Cohen have another name?

I was browsing on the internet looking for Cohen's stuff, then i find this website
http://www.forwellbeing.com
For well being.com
What is this????
Is this a scam or a branchout?

I am going to e-mail them to see how much it cost--then i will know for sure!!!
Anybody heard of them?

Hi Simplyloc,

I've had a look at the website you were talking about and its definately not part of Cohens. I'm guessing its a spin off of Cohens, like SureSlim is. It looks like its originated in South Africa like Cohens but they havent actually done the research themselves - have a look under their research tab - http://www.forwellbeing.com/research.asp.

From what i understand, they dont actually make up a plan for you from their own research, they use other ppls research and just pass it on to you, ppl like Dr Atkins and others. As they say, "TLC-International is not (and never claims to be) an academic research institution…it remains a commercial enterprise that effectively applies leading research by using sophisticated processes and appointed research and development task teams to produce effective commercial products. However, dating from 1987 to the present, some of our over 35 000 references and data on TLC-International's research databases include selected publications and research papers of over 200 acknowledged, leading specialists."

It sounds a bit dodgy to me after knowing what I do about Cohens. I'd be intrested to hear what others say about this....

Nat

PS I just started reading this websites Q and A section and as im reading, I'm saying to myself - "Gee this all sounds so familiar" so I decided to check the Cohens website - would you believe that TLC's Q and A's and Cohens FAQ are almost exactly the same!!!!! Almost WORD FOR WORD! What is going on here? Someone is copying from someone! You would think the original publisher would have a copyright or something? I'm a little confused now.

Thoughts anyone?

I sms'd the lady in Brisbane and she give me the run down. Here goes the cost is $820 one bloodtest only no follow up bloodtests, apparently they work out of South Africa and have been around for 19years, I suggested to the lady where they the same as cohens and sureslim and thats when she said this company started before Cohens. The 5 hour rule is the same,everything sounds the same except no follow up bloodtest and the stabilisation which is cohens refeed is done re-introducing back carbs into the diet. Thats all I managed to find out my home phone rang I was told that before you start the plan you do a 6 day detox while you wait for your plan to come.
That all folks Dakota aka SUPER SLEUTH ha ha.
