Most dieters, especially those who have suffered through the cabbage soup diet or the grapefruit diet, have only dreamed about a cookie diet. Cookies are usually associated with weight gain, not loss. A diet where you can indulge in cookies has a great appeal to sweet lovers.
These cookies aren’t your run of the mill kind of cookie. While they don’t have herbals or drugs to boost metabolism, they are meal replacements. They contain extra fiber and protein to keep you fuller longer than a traditional cookie.
The downside is that they aren’t close to being as sweet as your usual homemade cookies. They are edible. It requires some a period of adjustment, if you are going from eating regular cookies to a Cookie Diet cookie. If you have been on a low carb diet, you might not even notice the difference. They taste better when you warm them in the microwave. (Don’t do it too long though. They will be too rubbery to eat.)
The Cookie Diet eliminates most decisions about what to eat. You eat cookies for breakfast and lunch. The hardest part is picking the flavor and deciding what to eat for dinner. During the day you eat around 4-8 cookies which is approximately 500 calories. Dinners can be simple too. You should eat a lean protein, like chicken or fish, and vegetables. You can also have a light frozen meal and a salad. Cookie Dieters usually eat around 900-1,500 calories a day. Any one eating less than 1,200 should be supervised by a doctor.
Currently there are several different cookie diet plans on the market. The most commonly used are Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet and the Hollywood Cookie Diet. Dr. Siegal is credited with originally creating the cookie diet. Dr. Siegal is a successful obesity physician in Miami, Florida.
Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet weekly supply of cookies cost about $60 on their website. The flavors in the box include: Oatmeal Raisin, Chocolate, Blueberry, Banana, and Coconut. Dr. Siegal also sells multi-vitamin supplement.
The Hollywood Cookie Diet has more buying options. Instead of buying all of the flavors, like you are forced to do with Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet, you can buy only the flavors you like. A 12-16 day supply of cookies cost around $60 making the Hollywood Cookie Diet a more affordable option. Hollywood Cookie Diet flavors include: Chocolate Chip, Lemon, Oatmeal Raisin, and Cranberry Orange.
The Cookie Diet has worked for many people. It is fast and easy diet to do. You won’t be stuck in the kitchen chopping veggies all day. Once you order, your breakfast, lunch and snacks are taken care of. It does have some drawbacks. Although eating cookies most of the days seems like a dream now, it might get old after a month of cookies. It limits your ability to eat lunches out for business. Also, once you reach your goal weight, as with any diet, you have to be careful make health conscience choices or the weight will come right back.
