Food Is Not Your Enemy

Lose Weight By Eating Cookies

This kind of thing drives me nuts. Behold, the “Cookie Diet”:

“Ms. Kane is one of an estimated 500,000 people who have lost weight on Dr. Sanford Siegal’s diet — at least according to Dr. Siegal. The gist of it is simple: Eat cookies and lose up to 10 pounds a month.

Or, in blunter terms: Consume a substance whose ingredients and nutritional value are somewhat vague and drop weight, because how can you not when you’re only consuming 800 to 1,000 calories a day?”

Yes, you will lose weight eating any kind of food at all if you’re restricted to 800-1,000 calories a day. Eat sticks of butter all day. Eat nothing but mayonnaise. You WILL lose weight on that amount of calories.

Of course, everyone gains the weight right back as soon as they get off the diet. Why? Because they’re starving–both for real food, and nutrients from real food. The Cookie Diet is an unsustainable way of eating, and only a quick fix that will ultimately fail you.
