MONTREAL, Jan. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Dr. Siegal's Direct Nutritionals, LLC, the worldwide distributor of Dr. Siegal's COOKIE DIET(R) hunger-controlling cookies and other products, today announced that Dr. Siegal's cookies and shake mixes are now available at Diet D'Lite in Fairview Pointe Claire Mall in Pointe Claire, Quebec. The new kiosk, which opened on January 15th, is located on the first level across from Deco Decouverte.
The Canadian proprietors of Diet D'Lite include a dentist, a lawyer, and a health care entrepreneur. The three first learned of Dr. Siegal's COOKIE DIET(R) in early 2008 when they saw a kiosk in a mall while vacationing in Boca Raton, Florida. The three bought a supply of cookies for themselves and their teenage children and brought them home to Quebec. They were so pleased with the results that they contacted Dr. Sanford Siegal, who lives and practices in Miami, Florida, and obtained permission to sell his products in malls throughout Quebec.
"When we saw the Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet kiosk in the Boca Raton mall we were intrigued. The concept seemed simple enough for anyone to follow and the steady stream of customers was impressive," said Audrey Fishman, Vice-President of Diet D'Lite. "But it wasn't until our children and we began to see the weight come off that we decided to contact Dr. Siegal about carrying his products in Quebec."
This is not the first time that Dr. Siegal's cookies and shakes have been available locally in Montreal. In 2002, he allowed a Canadian doctor to open and franchise weight management centers that used Dr. Siegal's name, six-cookies-a-day weight loss system, and hunger-controlling foods. The franchisee opened dozens of centers throughout North America under various names including Siegal Smart for Life Weight Management Centers. The relationship ended in August 2006, at which time Dr. Siegal stopped supplying his products to his former franchisee.
"More than 1,000 Canadians have ordered Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet products from CookieDiet.com," said Matthew Siegal, president & CEO of Dr. Siegal's Direct Nutritionals, LLC. "Beginning with the Diet D'Lite location in Pointe Claire, we're moving quickly to make Dr. Siegal's Cookie Diet cookies and shake mixes available from local retailers throughout Canada."
Dr. Siegal's COOKIE DIET(R) weight loss program and foods were created 34 years ago by the Cookie Doctor(TM), renowned author and weight loss expert Sanford Siegal, D.O., M.D., in order to control his patients' hunger and enable them to stick to the reduced-calorie diet that he prescribes in his South Florida medical practice, Siegal Medical Group. More than 500,000 of Dr. Siegal's patients, and those of 200 American and Canadian doctors that he has supplied, have lost weight with the help of his hunger-controlling foods.
The hunger-suppressing quality of Dr. Siegal's cookies, shake mixes, and soup comes from his proprietary amino acid mixture that results from the blending of various protein food substances. For thirty-four years, Dr. Siegal has personally mixed every batch of his secret protein formula with his own hands in his private bakery near his Miami medical clinic. The formula is known only to Dr. Siegal and his wife, who often joins him in his bakery for the arduous formula-mixing sessions.
