One of the latest fad diets is called the Cookie Diet. A Dr. Siegel has invented and markets a line of cookies, shakes, and meal replacements that dieters consume during the day, then follow with a reasonable dinner.
The cookies that Dr. Siegel sells, are eaten 6 per day, and supply 500 calories. The dieter is then expected to eat a 300 calorie dinner for a total of 800 calories.
You can find Dr. Siegel's diet cookies at many retailers or through the good doctor himself, you can also make them yourself using the recipe below. Eat six cookies per day and then have 6 oz. of fish or chicken, 2 cups of veggies and a salad (with lowfat dressing) for dinner.
