Has anyone else heard of this yet ? I just heard about this in the morning listening to ESPN.
hollywood cookie diet dot com. go there and see for yourself how silly it is
here is the actual website for it
i prefer the Taco Bell drive-thru diet...
Was talking about this on another board yesterday too.
This diet replaces 4 meals with 'healthy cookies' and expects you to eat at or below 1000 calories per day.
Obviously this "diet" doesn't reinforce the idea of healthy eating habits (promoting cookies as a meal replacement).
I just couldn't believe people really would look to this as a viable option.
Then again, I should know better than to be amazed at anything these days.
With weight loss products being the gazillion dollar industry it is, I guess people really do hope for that magic pill which will make them thin, and trim.
I just wonder where is the moral responsibility from these companies. "Cookies" by nature are junk food, and they're praying on that ideology of unhealthy eating instead of helping people get out of the mindset of eating junk.
I believe in everyone's right to make money, and they're obviously capitalizing on people's desperation.
Personally, I think it's time a group starts doing advertising like they do against cigarettes... against unhealthy eating. I'm not saying to use the food pyramid we learn in school either. There has to be a way of showing the effects of obesity, other than the obvious visual aspects.
Something that shows what being fat actually does to the body inside and out... clogged arteries etc.
I'd probably be where I want to be if I could kick the weekend boozing. Realizing that is a good start though... so, I'm cutting back.
People are desperate for a pill or something because they don't want to change their glutinous ways. Wouldn't life be great if you could eat all the crap you want and still be thin? Cookies... People will buy anything I guess.
My thoughts exactly. Whats next ? The Sour cream and onion potato chip diet ?
all these people care about is your money, they don't care if you die, as long as you pay the man.
C.o.o.k.i.e. diet stands for: "Can't Offer Other Knowledge In Eating".."yey there is hope, cookies"!!...seriously, why don't we just tell people to smash their heads on a wall? Same crap as eveything being sold on television...burns calories, rapid change in appearance... side effects include: headache, nausea, vomiting, dizziness...
