Created by renowned physician, author, and weight-loss expert Dr. Sanford Siegal, Dr. Siegal’s COOKIE DIET is a proven, three-step plan that has helped more than a half million people lose weight since 1975. It’s a safe, fast, and affordable approach to weight loss and weight maintenance that hundreds of doctors throughout North America have used to help their patients lose weight. The cookies are all-natural, Kosher, and vegetarian, and people find them very tasty.
Dr. Siegal’s time-tested concept is simple: Stick to a diet of 1,000 to 1,200 calories a day, of which about 500 come from Dr. Siegal’s COOKIE DIET hunger-controlling snacks and 500 to 700 from a generous meal. On 1,000 to 1,200 calories, everyone loses weight. There are no failures at that caloric level.
Set Your Goal
Consult your physician before starting this or any diet. Your doctor may have reasons why you shouldn’t begin a diet. Once you begin your diet, check in with your doctor as often as he recommends because people who diet under a doctor’s supervision have greater success.
Choose your plan
If you are looking losing weight, most people lose about 5-7 kgs a month on this diet, so plan how many months you would like to buy, if you or looking to have these as snacks, 1 month variety pack will be a great option,
*results very between individuals.
Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Plan is based on most people who have a typical workday schedule. It assumes that you wake up at around 7am, work from 9pm to 5pm or so, have dinner around 8pm, and go to bed around 11pm. It also assumes that you will have your one “real” meal in the evening (but you can adjust the time to suit your lifestyle). Under this plan, you never go more than two hours without eating in order to reduce the opportunity for serious hunger to develop.
It will look a little something like this
Total daily calories: 1,000 to 1,200
Time between snacks: 2 hours (do not exceed or shorten)
Target weight loss*: 5-8 kgs per month
Dinner Meal: 250g of lean meat / fish / lamb / chicken / pork plus salad or veggies
* based on 1,000 to 1,200 daily calories. Individual results will vary based on age, weight, activity level, and other factors.
Maintaining Your Weight Loss
After you reach your goal weight you move to the maintenance phase. Now that your body is accustomed to eating small, frequent portions, you have had practice preparing healthy meals and you also have got into the routine of doing some light exercise, you are now prepared to scale that up slightly to prepare 3 healthy meals, and increase your exercise.
Keeping the cookies in your diet to eat between meals will help further control your hunger so you don’t overeat.
