Too good to be true

Too Good to be True???

  • There is yet to be found scientific evidence regarding the Cookie Diet.

  • Personal analysis of the diet:

    • Be leery of diets considered to be very low calorie,

      especially without supervision of doctors.

    • Can a diet be considered effective without incorporating

      physical activity?

    • Long term effectiveness of the Cookie Diet is unknown

    • There is no way to wean off the diet.

    • Where are the recommended amounts of fruits, veggies, and dairy?
