Don’t bother me, I’m having lunch.
Did I hear that right? As I clicked on the television this morning to get the news, Harry Smith was talking about the Cookie Diet. Now this was news I could get my teeth into!
What a concept! I sat down and took notes.
Apparently some doctor came up with the cookie diet in 1975. I can’t believe it’s 2008 and I’m just now hearing about it. Cookies are my favorite food group. I like to peel back the wrapper on those tubes of refrigerator cookies and eat them raw – like a banana. Now, I don’t do that often, but if I’m having a really bad hair day and its raining, that’s a sure fire attitude booster.
Well, today it’s raining and I think I’ll do the cookie diet. Here’s the program in a nutshell. You eat two cookies for breakfast and two for lunch. Then you are allowed to consume a 900 calorie dinner! What! How can that be? This doctor markets his own cookies which I understand taste like cheap shampoo they use at discount hair salons. I’ll opt for Chips Ahoy!
I did the math and found that two Chips Ahoy! have about 180 calories, so four would equal 360 calories. Add the whopping 900 for dinner and I’m well within my 1250 calorie range Weight Watchers touts as the magic number to lose weight. Hey, I’m liking this program.
The diet claims you can lose five pounds in one week. Of course you might also lose your teeth and hair. I’ll just try it for a few days and see what happens.
