Obesity expert Sanford Siegal, D.O., M.D., known to generations as the Cookie Doctor™, will attend a Grand Opening event on Saturday, August 9th
McLean, VA (PRWEB) July 15, 2008 -- Dr. Siegal's Direct Nutritionals, LLC, the global distributor of Dr. Siegal's® COOKIE DIET™ hunger-controlling foods and operator of seven U.S. retail locations, will open its eighth non-medical, retail Dr. Siegal's® COOKIE DIET™ kiosk at Tysons Corner Center mall in the Washington, DC, suburb of McLean, Virginia, on Friday, August 1st. Dr. Sanford Siegal, who created his venerable weight loss system and hunger-controlling foods in 1975, will attend a grand opening event on Saturday, August 9th, from 2pm to 3pm.
Tysons Corner Center is the largest shopping mall in the Washington, D.C., area and is the fifth largest mall in the United States. The super-regional mall continues to meet the growing demand for better entertainment and dining in its densely populated and highly affluent market.
"The Washington, DC, metro area is one of our fastest-growing markets and we believe that Tysons Corner Center is the premier location for our first retail outlet here," said Matthew Siegal, president and CEO of McLean, Virginia-based Dr. Siegal's Direct Nutritionals, LLC. "Our retail customers will appreciate the convenience of buying locally."
Since August 2007, Dr. Siegal's® COOKIE DIET™ has been available in the Washington area as part of a medically-supervised weight loss program at Lifestyle Weight Management near Tysons Corner. Dr. Siegal encourages anyone who intends to begin any kind of reduced-calorie diet to do so under a doctor's supervision. Washington-area residents will now have the option of buying Dr. Siegal's hunger-controlling cookies and shake mixes at the Dr. Siegal's® COOKIE DIET™ kiosk in Tysons Corner Center and using them under their family doctor's supervision, or of obtaining the products as part of a complete, professionally-monitored program at Lifestyle Weight Management.
Although Dr. Siegal's® COOKIE DIET™ hunger-suppressing diet cookies, diet shakes, and other products have been available for more than thirty years to patients of Siegal Medical Group, Dr. Sanford Siegal's South Florida medical practice, the 79 year old physician, author and weight loss expert only started offering them to the general public at non-medical retail outlets and at www.CookieDiet.com about one year ago. In just twelve months, his hunger-controlling foods have fueled the launch of a thriving e-commerce business and seven shopping mall kiosks that are among the most successful in North America.
Dr. Siegal's program features his hunger-suppressing cookies, shakes and soup which contain his secret blend of certain amino acids, the basic components of food proteins. He conceived the idea of a cookie-based diet in the early 1970's while writing a book on food substances that suppress hunger without drugs. In 1975, after years of experimentation on family and friends, he perfected his proprietary formula and baked it into a cookie. Acceptance by his patients was immediate and soon Dr. Siegal's® COOKIE DIET™ was the exclusive approach to weight loss at Siegal Medical Group. More than 200 other doctors have used Dr. Siegal's® COOKIE DIET™ hunger-controlling cookies, shakes and soup in their own practices. Dr. Siegal personally mixes every batch of his secret protein formula with his own hands in his private bakery.
Dr. Siegal's® COOKIE DIET™ is frequently in the news. Recent appearances have included NBC's Today Show, The FOX Morning Show with Mike & Juliet, the FOX Business Happy Hour and the Food Channel.
Dr. Siegal's® COOKIE DIET™ hunger-controlling foods and nutritional supplements are available online at www.CookieDiet.com; by phone 24/7 at 866-464-5595 toll-free; and from select doctors, drug stores and retailers.
