I Like the Sound of This: The Cookie Diet

Anyone who has ever tried to lose weight knows how hard sticking to a diet can be, but imagine a diet that means you eat more cookies.

Dr. Siegal’s cookie diet, originally created in 1975 offers a proprietary mixture of certain amino acids baked into cookies that control a users hunger. He instructs patients to consume six cookies (approximately 500 calories) during the day to control hunger, and a reasonable dinner (300 calories) in the evening.

They’ve just launched a website here with more information and online ordering. According to the press release, among the features debuting on CookieDiet.com is a Resources section that includes Dr. Siegal’s Weight Loss Calculators and a new proprietary software suite personally designed by Dr. Sanford Siegal. The calculators remove the uncertainty inherent in most diets by helping the user set and reach a realistic goal weight by a specific date. Dr. Siegal’s Weight Loss Calculators are intended to be helpful to any dieter regardless of the particular diet they follow.

I haven’t tried it yet, but I like the sound of it, although I’m still waiting for someone to come out with a beer diet that works.
