Cookie Diet: Eat Cookies and Lose Weight

Home Diets and Nutrition Cookie Diet    

Can cookies be a diet? That's the first question I had when I heard cookie diet.

And the answer is yes. It's a low-calorie diet in the form of cookies, convenient to use, aiming for hunger control. The idea is to take 4-6 cookies a day to replace your meals.

Some plans can combine with one healthy meal a day. If you want diets for quick weight loss, it might be what you are looking for. One of my friends used it (Dr. Siegal's) and loved it.

The following are the diet cookie brands you'll find on the current market:

What's in common for all cookie diets is that they all are meal replacement diets. This plan normally can help you reach a short term goal but can't last long. It's a good idea to use it to loose some pounds fast and then find a balanced healthy meal plan to maintain a long lasting weight loss goal.

(Just for your information, I've been keeping my weight in a healthy range by drinking teas I love while I use these guide lines for my meal preparation.)

Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet

Dr. Siegal's cookies are low-fat, high fiber, protein-filled and with the secret recipe that contains certain amino acids to suppress your appetite to make weight loss an easier goal, losing 15 pounds a month.

In this diet, you eat six of this diet cookie brand (90 calories each) a day and have one dinner meal in addition. In this one meal, you should give yourself one cup of vegetables and six ounces of lean white meat protein. You also need to have eight glasses of liquid per day. Coffee or tea is fine.
