Yes it is true that there is a cookie diet. Actually, there are a few companies that are producing this diet which Cookies allows participants to eat 6 cookies a day plus one "real meal" which consists of vegetables and chicken.

Can you lose weight on this diet? Well, yes…and that is because you'd be consuming anywhere from 800-1000 calories a day. Those low numbers would help anyone lose weight placing this diet into another one of our culture's quick fixes for losing weight. It also helps "legalize" the cookie which is usually a forbidden food on most diet plans.

Critics of the diet don't feel this is a good way to go because when you cut calories below 1,000 calories day you can have potassium deficiency, gallstones, heart palpitations and other health issues and it never leads to long lasting weight loss.

I am in agreement with these critics. Eating cookies is not teaching healthy eating habits. It is a quick fix and will not help keep the weight off long term which is the goal of weight loss. Instead of investing in a cookie diet use the tips from ND to help you with weight loss – keep a food diary, reduce the amount of processed foods you eat, eat more fruits and vegetables, and don't forget to exercise.
