All About Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet Canada
Eating cookies to lose weight? Does it sound too good to be true? Since 1975, Dr. Sanford Siegal's Cookie Diet has helped over a million people around the world lose weight. It is a rather extreme low-calorie diet and if you stick with it, you will see quick results.
How Does The Cookie Diet Work?
With this diet, you replace your breakfast, lunch and snacks with the program's cookies and shakes. These cookies and shakes are supposed to have hunger-controlling capabilities - and they better if you are only eating 1000 calories a day!. Along with this you also eat a proper supper. In total, you willbe eating around 1,000 calories per day. Now that's really low.
The Cookie Diet is a multi-step program where you start by using an online calculator to figure out how many calories you burn in a day. I guess the idea is that if you know how much energy that you burn in a day, you can then make sure that you do not consume more than that amount of calories in food.
The next phase is the weight loss phase. You need your doctor's permission to go onto a low calorie diet. During this phase, you'll eat only the cookies and shakes to replace your daytime meals and then a low-calorie supper.
What's In The Cookies?
Don't expect cookies like you know cookies. These cookies are designed to curb your appetite. How do they do that? Think amino-acids. These cookies and shakes are loaded with amino-acids and proteins that naturally make you feel full and satisfied.
Is There A Downside To Eating Just Cookies?
Well of course there is a downside. This diet will help you to lose weight fast but it does nothing to teach you proper nutrition or healthy eating habits. Chances are that once you lose the weight and go back to your old eating habits, you will regain the weight. We consider this to be a bit of a binge diet. Use it with caution!
Canadians have many diet systems and programs to choose from but don't believe everything you read. Many advertisements that you read are for American programs that do not serve Canada.
Eating right can still be tasty and enjoyable. Depending on which weight loss program you follow, you would be surprised what you are allowed to eat. Sticking to a diet may be easier than you think!
You may never look like one of those ripped guys who spend all their time at the gym but with a little work you can look and feel better. Plus, you can do most of that work at home without a gym membership.
