Dr. Siegal’s COOKIE DIET® Weight-Loss System Overview
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. And now it’s easier, tastier, and more affordable than ever.
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.
The cookies are all-natural, Kosher, and vegetarian, and people find them very tasty.
How much can you expect to lose?
You can expect to lose about 11 – 17 pounds a month on a daily regimen of 1,000 to 1,200 calories.
During the weight-loss phase, with your family doctor’s blessing, you’ll eat NINE Dr. Siegal’s COOKIE DIET® hunger-controlling cookies plus a generous dinner meal. It’s recommended that you have your main meal in the evening but you can have it anytime. The cookies will provide about 500 calories and the dinner 500 to 700. That’s a total of 1,000 to 1,200 calories a day. At that level there are no failures; everyone loses weight.
Here are the suggested three steps to reaching your goal weight (subject to your doctor’s approval):
Step 1: See Your Doctor
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 or she recommends because people who diet under a doctor’s supervision have greater success.
Step 2: Order Cookies
Order a Dr. Siegal’s COOKIE DIET Variety Pack online. Each kit includes a one-month supply of cookies, with one week of each amazing flavour:
- Chocolate Brownie
- Maple Pancakes

If you wish, you can also order additional Weekly or Monthly Boxes of cookies.
Step 3: Lose Weight on Dr. Siegal’s Eating Plan
The following table shows the Dr. Siegal’s Eating Plan. This timetable will work for 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.
8 AM: 2 cookies (120 calories) 10 AM: 1 cookie (60 calories)
NOON: 1 cookie (60 calories) 2 PM: 1 cookie (60 calories)
4 PM: 2 cookies (120 calories) 6 PM: 1 cookie (60 calories)
8 PM: DINNER (500-700 calories) 10 PM: 1 cookies (60 calories)
TOTAL DAILY CALORIES: 1,000 to 1,200
TIIME BETWEEN SNACKS: 2 Hours (do not exceed or shorten)
TARGET WEIGHT LOSS*: 11-17 pounds per Month
* Based on 1,000 to 1,200 daily calories. Individual results will vary based on age, weight, activity level, and other factors.
Step 4: Maintain the 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. The cookies you will eat in between your meals will help curb your sweet tooth and help control your hunger so you don’t over eat.
