A woman is always on a diet.
We women struggle a lot when it comes to diets. Diets are hard to keep. But that’s not the least of our problems.
There are so many diet plans out there! There’s diet plans for skinny women who want more muscles. There’s diets for women who want more muscle. There’s diets for women who want to keep eating the food they love. There’s diets for beer-drinkers. There’s diets where you eat only vegetables. Adding to the confusion, scientists are continually researching and finding out which diet plans are the best plans — once and for all.
Naomi Barr of O magazine has written an article, titled Battle of the Diet Plans. She says that we spend a total of 60 billion (dollars, not cookies) a year on diets, pills, and programs. This article sums up the best diet plans so that you can use the 60 billion on your regularly updated wardrobe, instead.
No more trying to find the perfect diet, because they’re all in this one little article! No more struggling to find a diet that will actually work, because this article has all the research. No more crying because the diets you try don’t make you drop a dress size within a week. This is it, ladies.
The winners of the study were low carb and exercise. However, the article concluded with “the truth is, there is more than one way to go for weight loss, so don’t get discouraged.”
With that said, I think I’ll stick to the cookie diet.
When you hear “cookie” and “diet” together you might think they describe another diet fad. But after 34 years, 500,000 users, and millions of lost pounds, Dr. Siegal’s COOKIE DIET® is no fad. It was created in 1975 by renowned physician, author, and weight loss expert Sanford Siegal, D.O., M.D., and has been used by more than 200 doctors in the U.S., Canada, and Latin America to help their own patients lose weight—safely, quickly, and without hunger.
Dr. Siegal’s COOKIE DIET® sounds simple and it is. Eat six special cookies to control hunger during the day and a reasonable dinner in the evening. Consume around 1,000 calories a day (ask your family doctor to recommend the right amount for you) and lose an average of ten pounds per month.
Yup, that’s the diet for me!
