Dr. Siegel's Diet Cookies

"From a friend who obtained it from a famous diet Doctor. Eat 6 cookies throughout the day along with 6 oz. fish or chicken, 2 cups veggies and a salad for dinner. Use diet for one month and you can expect a 15 lb. weight loss. I tried them and they are tasty but would add maybe add 1/2 cup of Spenda and more spices next time! They DO fill you up!! Can't vouch for weight loss yet but sounds like it will work!!!"

Questions & Replies

  1. Does this make 6 cookies, from the notes, or does it yield 24, like it says on the top portion of the recipe? Looking to know the nutritional info/calories in each so I'm not sure what the math is there. Thanks!


  1. Amazing cookies. With these changes, there are 75 calories per cookie: add 1/4 tsp more cinnamon and 1 Tbsp more cocoa. Add 1/2 tsp ground cloves and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce. Use Splenda baking blend instead of sugar. With a small ice cream scoop, the recipe always makes 28 cookies for me. I eat 6 of these a day (plus a beverage with each one) and 750 calories of other food, and the scale gives me a new, better number almost every day. I'm never hungry. This is a diet I can stick with for as long as it takes. Even after I reach my goal weight, these cookies will be my snack of choice. I keep some in my purse at all times.
  2. Although these cookies may be delicious, this is NOT the recipe. Dr. Siegel's recipe contains beef in it (yeah - look at the box). I'm looking for the AUTHENTIC recipe. Guess I'll have to try to come up with one on my own.
  3. Hi .it is really good ,i like it
  4. Well I am going to give this a try. I know the original Siegel cookies work back in 2002 I tried them and I lost 45 lbs in and out a month and a half. Yes Dr. Siegel uses Beef protein but that isn't something
