A low-calorie cookbook to complement Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

From the creator and face of Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet comes a complementary cookbook that will help you effortlessly enjoy the one healthy meal scheduled each day. The Cookie Doctor Cookbook was created by Dr. Sanford Siegal, and he says he's proud of the work they did. In an interview with Dr. Siegal he told us it was impossible to choose a favorite from the book.

On Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet, you eat six of his specially formulated cookies each day, and then finish it with a healthy, balanced meal. In total, users consume about 1000-1200 calories each day.

For those unsure of the best way to prepare this one healthy meal, and who also want to learn about nutritous cooking and eating, then The Cookie Doctor Cookbook is a valuable tool to have in your weight loss arsenal. With 120 recipes offering entrees, sides, and even dessert, you're certain not to be bored any time soon.

The book's chapters are organized by calorie counts, with a section for 100-calorie recipes, all the way up to a section for 500-calorie recipes. That way, depending on your total calorie consumption for the day, you can narrow in on exactly what you can and should eat.

  • Includes success stories

DIET and NUTRITION

The Cookie Doctor Cookbook offers 120 recipes that don't exceed 500 calories and focus on satiating foods that are high in fiber and protein.

The book's chapters are organized by calorie counts for recipes 100 calories through 500 calories. Within each of those chapters, the recipes are organized by appetizers, salads, vegetables, soups, side dishes, sandwiches, entrees, and desserts. The recipes included suit any meal of the day, breakfast through dinner and even dessert and snacks, and can be used for those not specifically following Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet.

Some of the many recipes you may try include:

  • Chicken Cordon Bleu
  • Oven Baked Fish Sticks
  • Spaghetti Squash with Crushed Tomatoes
  • Jambalya
  • Moo Shu Pork
  • Sensational Chef Salad
  • Turkey Reubens
  • Tiramisu Minis
  • Raspberry Peach Cobbler

The concentration on portions that are "double the size of portions in other low-calorie books" can be concerning, especially for those who are trying to learn about proper portion control.

EXERCISE

There is no mention of fitness guidance in The Cookie Doctor Cookbook as it is a cookbook. In general, fitness is not a cornerstone of The Cookie Diet, however it is encouraged for weight maintenance.

CONCLUSION

It's promising to see a cookbook come along to accompany the 35-year-old Cookie Diet created by Dr. Sanford Siegal. While meal replacement plans like this one make it easy for people to control calories and portion and often effectively lose weight, without any guidance for how to eat real food their weight often rebounds and it's difficult to maintain a weight loss.

However, with The Cookie Doctor Cookbook anyone looking for a low-calorie cookbook with a broad variety of meals that are simple, comfortable, and even familiar remakes of their favorite foods will learn how to eat in a way that is satisfying, filling, and best of all healthy.
