Cookies? Diet? Cookie Diet? Well that sounds totally impossible, doesn't it? Usually the reason why you've gained weight is your love of cookies, so the whole concept of actually eating cookies to lose weight seems nuttier than a oatmeal macadamia cookie!
There are various versions of the cookie diet, and while none of them involve a box of Oreos, they all appear quite cool.
There are two camps claiming to be the originators cookie diet, Dr. Sandford Siegel (and sometimes the cookie diet is referred to as "the Siegel Cookie Diet") and "Smart For Life Weight Management Centers." I'll let them battle it out on their own. There is also the "Hollywood Cookie Diet."
The basic concept of the various cookie diets are:
1. Eating approximately 6 of the various versions of "cookies" which are really high fiber, nutritious bars (contingent on the manufacturer).
2. Eating a "sensible meal" at night.
3. Drinking boatloads of water with each cookie
One thing of note is that these are very low calorie diets, approximately 800 calories a day which is very low. As with any low calorie meal replacement diet, you'll lose a lot of weight fast, but keeping it off will be the challenge of you learning how to eat a proper diet.
As with any diet, please consult your physician before starting any of these programs.
