Like most of us, I have a pretty long list of things I wish I’d known when I was younger. Lessons that would have saved me lots of time, aggravation and money. As I’ve gotten older I have managed to make the list smaller by only keeping the items that have the most impact. One of those items is “sustainability.”
Sustainability forces you to look at the big picture, not just what your desired outcome should be. It demands that you implement changes to your current lifestyle in order to achieve your goals. The curious thing is that it forces you to examine every single step so you are assured they are realistic and manageable in order for you to see your desired results.
Sometimes we fail because in spite of how strong our will and resolve are, we have chosen methods that are not realistic for us. The best example I can share is these quick weight loss systems that encourage you to simply drink a shake, or eat a cookie. As intelligent individuals we clearly see the flaw in this system, but our emotional side overrules logic and suddenly we are spending money and time on this promise of weight loss. (more…)
We recently had a chance to interview Dr. Sanford Siegal, the creator and face of Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet.
In the interview he defends that his cookie diet is not a fad, we discuss the ingredients used to make the popular cookies, and he tells why at 80-years old he’s still a constant presence at the bakery.
Live from his Florida bakery, Dr. Siegal gives us a behind-the-scenes peek at the very room where his 35-year-old cookie plan is baked and packaged daily.

The wildly popular Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet recently released a new variation on their classic weight loss program, featuring newly formulated cookies. The Dr. Siegal’s Plan 10X consists of smaller, better tasting cookies that are intended to be eaten more frequently throughout the day.
The classic Dr. Siegal’s cookie diet, which is also still available, is centered around 90-calorie cookies that are eaten six times per day, whenever you are hungry. The New Plan 10X cookies are 60 calories, and one or two should be eaten every two hours, up to 9 cookies per day. On both plans, you will eat a 700 to 500 calorie dinner every day, which should be as healthy and nutritionally balanced as possible.
Whether it’s by nutritional necessity or personal choice, many people follow gluten-free diets. Gluten allergies and intolerances can often make it difficult for consumers to enjoy most foods that are on the market. For years now, this group of people has grown and they are looking for more options. They want to eat a variety of food and they don’t want to sacrifice taste to do so. The gluten-free industry has expanded to accommodate the consumers and there are now very few options that don’t have a gluten-free alternative. Even the famed cookie diet has an answer for the gluten-conscious. (more…)
The little drops that trick your body into thinking it’s pregnant to mobilize fat have been getting a lot of praise from Jersey Shore‘s J-WOWW (also known as Jenni Faley, for those who don’t watch the show). hCG stands for Human Chorionic Gonapotropin and the diet is effective for both men and women, promising dramatic results. “My girlfriend lost 40 pounds in six weeks on the plan,” said the TV star, according to the Examiner.com. “She tried everything and it worked for her. So I thought if it worked for her, it would work for me.” (more…)
