Even though the sound of a cookie diet seems implausible, it's been around for a while and thousands of people claim success from it. Dr. Siegal, a diet expert, physician, M.D., D.O. and author developed this diet in 1975. The basis for the cookie diet is using one of his special cookies as meal replacements twice each day.
 
There are five different flavors of cookies to choose from: banana, coconut, oatmeal raisin, chocolate and blueberry. Eight glasses of water is a part of the diet. Other than that, coffee or tea is allowed, but no other drinks.

The dieter eats 6 cookies each day, totaling 800 calories and 70 grams of carbs. For dinner, the meal should consist of six ounces of lean meat and one cup of vegetables.

The cookies are low in fat, high in protein and in fiber. This leads to feeling fuller longer and less food cravings.

Does It Work?
Dr. Siegal claims to have helped over 500,000 people with his cookie diet. His website is full of testimonials with people stating that they have had significant weight loss on the cookie diet. There are a number of web based tools on the Dr. Siegal website to help with the calculations for your nutrition.

One point to note is that the cookie diet can get expensive, because you are locked into buying the cookies. However, if you compare it to other costs of food that you won't need to purchase while on the cookie diet, it might not be too bad.

Is It Safe?
While eating a cookie twice a day as part of a weight loss program sounds great, it's not necessarily going to work for the long term. The cookies are not as good tasting as regular cookies, and a diet of 1000 calories just isn't healthy. In addition, having just one cup of vegetables isn't near enough to be considered balanced.

After coming off of the cookie diet, many people put back the weight they lost because they haven't addressed the real reason why they gained weight in the first place. It's recommended that after losing the weight, to use the cookies for only one meal replacement a day.

Still though, the claim is that you can lose up to 15 pounds in one month. Certainly, there can be weight loss on the cookie diet, but it isn't the healthiest way to lose the pounds.
