The Cookie Diet

I read in US Weekly that I can lose 15 pounds on The Cookie Diet- I can't WAIT to get started! Better yet, you have to eat 6 cookies a day. How do I start?!!

I believe it works like this- eat 6 cookies a day until you reach about 300 pounds, at which point you qualify for gastric bypass surgery on your health insurance, enabling you to lose 15 pounds with absolutely no effort.

Thanks for sharing this amazing new way to stick it to the man!

OMG, that is so unhealthy!! Six "special cookies" that only this guy makes and dinner and that's it?!?!?! Anyone can lose weight if they're only consuming 800 calories a day!! What happens the second they decide they want to start having breakfast and lunch again!?!?!? I'll stick with my slow and steady weight loss (with the occasional cookie), thank you!! :)

Cookie Diet Creator Siegal Sues Smart for LIfe

This was all over the news yesterday:

Cookie Diet™ Creator Dr. Sanford Siegal's Company, Owner of the Cookie Diet™ Trademarks, Sues Smart for Life Weight Management Centers Franchisor

Lawsuit Against Smart For Life Weight Management Centers Franchisor and Principal Sasson Moulavi Alleges Trademark Infringement, Cyberpiracy, Lanham Act Violations and Other Causes of Action

Miami, FL (PRWeb) February 7, 2007 – Through his company, SM Licensing Corporation (SMLC), renowned physician, author, and weight loss expert Dr. Sanford Siegal, famous for creating the Cookie Diet™ ( weight management program and related diet cookies, shakes and soup, yesterday filed a Federal lawsuit against Boca Raton-based U.S. Medical Care Holdings LLC, franchisor of the Smart for Life Weight Management Centers, and its principal, Sasson Moulavi. The lawsuit, which was filed in the United States District Court Southern District of Florida, cites numerous causes of action related to the defendants’ alleged unauthorized use of intellectual property belonging to SMLC, including license rights to Dr. Siegal’s name, the “Cookie Diet™” trademark and other trademarks, and copyrighted images.

From September 2004 until August 2006, a franchising agreement permitted the defendants to use certain trademarks owned by SMLC and to distribute the famous Siegal™ diet cookies, shakes and soup. Although the relationship between SMLC and the defendants ended in August of 2006, the lawsuit alleges that the defendants continue to use the Siegal IP.

SMLC’s lawsuit seeks a preliminary injunction to immediately stop the defendants from continuing to use the trademark “Cookie Diet™” and all other Siegal IP; the assignment to SMLC of various web domains containing the Siegal name and trademarks; and compensatory and punitive damages.

In 1975, Dr. Sanford Siegal created the Cookie Diet™ and its first product—an oatmeal raisin diet cookie—to help control his patients’ hunger so that they could lose weight on a calorie-restricted diet. Other flavors, as well as shakes and soup, soon followed. The diet cookies and other foods provide unusual hunger control per calorie as a result of Dr. Siegal’s secret blend of certain food proteins called amino acids. The Cookie Diet™ foods contain no drugs.

More than 500,000 patients have been on the Cookie Diet™ during the past thirty-two years. Dr. Siegal and his program have been featured in dozens of media outlets including ABC’s Good Morning America, Woman’s World and Health magazine. Recently, Dr. Siegal announced his decision to make the Cookie Diet™ foods available nationwide from doctors and drug stores beginning in March. A story about the decision appeared in the January 19, 2007 issue of South Florida Business Journal. A web site,, notifies interested consumers where they will be able to obtain the Cookie Diet™ products in their area.

Cookie Diet

Yes, actually I lost 50 lbs total on the R&D Cookie Diet. I chose them because they are a smaller company, cost MUCH less, and taste a LOT better than the others. They are basically a high protein/high fiber/energy bar in cookie shape. You don't stay on them forever but they are a great jump start. I did follow the program for 3 months solid and I loved it. Felt great. It's mostly for people who are addicted to carbs and have been yo-yo-dieting for years... not for the young and fit ones who only have to eat healthy and exercise.

Cookies diet

The cookies contain amino acids thought to suppress hunger, fiber, and other ingredients that digest slowly to help keep you feeling full.

I think, cookie diet is very beneficial for us. If we take in a proper way. Eat them on a plan-dictated schedule. Have a 500- to 700-calorie dinner. Repeat for as long as you want.
