Over the years, a number of unique and even bizarre diet trends have emerged, one being the Hollywood Cookie Diet. After all, eating cookies as a way of losing body weight and fat goes against everything people have been taught but also against medical and nutritional science. Even so, some people who have tried this diet have actually lost weight.
Because of this, the Hollywood Cookie Diet deserves a closer look to determine if success is psychosomatic or if these special cookies really do have something to do with weight loss. According to the developer and manufacturing behind the Hollywood Cookie Diet, the concept is with restricting the amount of calories per day, which is done by consuming four of the high fiber/protein cookies.
Because so much of the Hollywood Cookie Diet is based on ingredients being high fiber and high protein, we wanted to provide information about specific ingredients. Interestingly, a majority of ingredients listed are comparable to what you would see with conventional, non-dietetic cookies, which certainly raises questions about authenticity specific to weight loss. The company provides a full list of ingredients to include:
- Baking Soda
- Calcium Carbonate
- Cream of Tartar
- Crystalline Fructose
- Egg Whites
- Enriched Wheat Flour
- Maltitol Syrup
- Mono and Diglycerides
- Natural Flavors
- Powdered Cellulose
- Rolled Oats’
- Soy Lecithin
- Vegetable Glycerine
- Vegetable Margarine
In addition to these ingredients, which are not listed in this article in order of concentration or volume used in the Hollywood cookies, another ingredient is provided that perhaps sets the formula apart from ordinary cookies. These cookies also contain Hollywood Premier Protein, although no one really knows that that ingredient is comprised of.
The way the Hollywood Cookie Diet is supposed to work is making a person fill full due to eating cookies that contain a high volume of fiber and protein. By experiencing the full sensation for a long period, the amount of regular food consumed would be less and the temptation to snack would be dramatically reduced.
Considered a meal replacement type of diet, you would be required to eat four cookies between the time you have breakfast and lunch. In addition, a well-balanced evening meal would be consumed. One additional requirement for the Hollywood Cookie Diet to work is that exercise should be added to the daily regimen.
Diet Pros and Cons
When looking at the Hollywood Cookie Diet, it appears to simply be a low calorie diet coupled with exercise. However, with the cookies making a person feel full and satisfied, it appears it might offer an advantage over some of the other diets currently being followed. Listed below are some of the specific pros and cons of the Hollywood Cookie Diet so before starting it, you would be able to determine if this particular diet were the right choice.
- Pros of the Diet
- One of the biggest challenges with any diet is feeling that all good food is prohibited but with the Hollywood Cookie Diet, you would not experience that same sense of deprivation
- Another positive aspect of this diet is having access to delicious and nutritious means on the company website, all developed to help keep you focused and on track for losing weight
- Cons of the Diet
- As mentioned earlier, the only real difference between the cookies on this diet and traditional cookies is the “Hollywood Premier Protein”, which to some degree remains a mystery
- Although the company that offers the Hollywood Cookie Diet states that many people have lost unwanted pounds while following the plan yet on the website, no before and after photographs, customer testimonials, or other pertinent information is provided
While the Hollywood Cookie Diet may work, the reason may be the low calorie diet and exercise more than the cookie itself. Although the price for one box of 12 cookies is high, if you were to follow this plan and lose the weight wanted then the price would be worth paying and the plan followed.
