Full Review of the Cookie Diet

While following the Cookie Diet, you mow down on these high protein cookies six times a day - whenever you're hungry just reach for a chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin cookie to satisfy your hunger cravings.These cookies are a combination of amino acids and other key ingredients that are meant to curb your hunger. Each day, you're supposed to eat a total of six protein cookies and have one meal for dinner of lean meat or fish with two vegetables.

I know what you're thinking - sure I'll follow a diet that allows me to eat cookies all day long. The cookie diet is extremely low in calories (only about 800 a day) and this is what causes the weight loss. However, it simply isn't realistic to eat nothing but cookies all day, and this diet won't provide the nutrients you need to keep you going.)

According to the promoters of this weight loss diet, in one month a woman could lose 12-15 pounds and a man could lose up to 20 pounds. Those are pretty sweet statistics. It may sound very tempting - eat cookies and losing weight - but after a while, it's going to get old. Any food starts to lose its appeal when it's all you're eating. Also, this cookie diet can get quite costly. You could make a whole batch of pretty darn good cookies for the price of just one cookie on this diet. Another concern is that the nutritional facts and ingredients for these cookies remain hidden. What exactly are they trying to hide?

Average weight loss: 5 - 7 lbs. per week.

Helpful Tips: Healthy, balanced meals and regular exercise is the best way to lose weight. When you get sick of the cookie diet, why not try it?
