The Cookie Diet : Does it Really Work?

Aug 3, 2008
The Cookie Diet is a popular diet that boasts eating six cookies, one full dinner meal, vegetables, and liquids on a daily basis for a total of 800 calories to lose weight quickly and safely.

Does a diet based around cookies really work? Sure it does! Dr. Sanford Siegal has created a diet called "The Cookie Diet" that is helping his followers drop an average of fifteen pounds per month. The diet works by consuming six cookies that zap dieters hunger. The diet only allows for one main meal, dinner. The only foods you are allowed to eat for dinner is six ounces of fish, turkey, chicken, or seafood.

The cookies help to keep the dieter on track because every single time a dieter feels even a sudden urge of hunger they are instructed to eat one of Dr. Siegal's cookies. The total caloric intake per day should amount to eight hundred calories. Dr. Siegal also points out that the dieter should consume eight glasses of liquid a day.

The main argument of the critics of this diet is that the total calories consumed on a daily basis are way below the recommended caloric intake recommended by most dieticians and doctors. Siegal is quick to defend his cookie diet by responding that there has been no problems reported of patient safety and that the lower calorie intake is supplemented and taken care of by vitamins.

The cookie's Dr. Siegal uses does not have any harmful drugs or chemicals inside of them. The cookies contain amino acids that help to keep hunger away. The proteins used in the cookies to suppress hunger are rice, oats, bran, and whole wheat flour.

The only complain by most dieters of this diet is that the cookies do not taste nearly as good as normal grocery store style cookies. Dr. Siegal explains that although the cookies are available in three different flavors (coconut, raisin, or chocolate) they are not meant to be full of flavor. The six cookies give the patient sixty grams of carbs a day. In comparison, one cookie has close to the amount of carbohydrates in a slice of bread.

Obviously, a cookie diet is not something that a person would want to stay on for an extended period of time. With all the facts in front of you do you think "The Cookie Diet" is a fad or a real and useful diet? Well, we did some research and could find nothing but positive remarks from actual dieters. Although there were dieticians that advised against this diet, the actual patients reported losing weight safely and feeling great.

Dr. Siegel says that each patient should use The Cookie Diet as a starting point and continue with their diet through sound nutrition and exercise. Goal setting is considered to be one of the most beneficial and useful ways to lose weight for a long period of time. Good luck in your quest to lose weight. Remember to always consult with your doctor before making any changes related to your health.
