Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet Book Cracks the Amazon Top 500
Date:10/24/2009

gal freely acknowledges bucks the conventional wisdom. Dr. Siegal addresses the tendency for some critics to "summarily dismiss" Dr. Siegal's COOKIE DIET® based solely on its unquestionably gimmicky name. He accepts his obligation to explain the origin and underlying principles of his diet before asking the reader to "...trust me when I tell you that you'll lose weight by eating cookies all day..." In Chapter Two, entitled "500,000 Anecdotes," Dr. Siegal reveals the import role that "anecdotal evidence" plays in every practicing physician's work, and he explains how his personal observations of more than 500,000 overweight patients support his approach to losing weight.

The second section is the longest and most scholarly part of the book and yet, perhaps paradoxically, the most fun to read. In the lengthiest chapters in the 320-page volume, Dr. Siegal takes the reader on an entertaining, occasionally hilarious journey through two centuries of weight-loss diets and nutritional wisdom. An enthusiastic collector of diet books (his private collection includes hundreds of volumes dating back to the early 18th century), Dr. Siegal resurrects for the reader's pleasure an array of mostly forgotten weight-loss schemes that, in their day, were enormously popular and considered medically sound. Perhaps the most memorable of these was "Fletcherizing," the inspiration of Horace Fletcher, famous in his day as "The Great Masticator," who argued that the key to sound health was to chew each mouthful of food 32 times (once for each tooth), and then spit it out. Fletcher's system had a massive following during the early 20th century.

"At the moment, the world seems fascinated to know whether this or that celebrity follows Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet, and I find that amusing. What people don't know is that every generation for at least the past 200 years had its share of diets with famous followers. Fletcher's diet had countless eminent disciples such as John
