Lose Weight On The Chocolate Chip Cookie Diet

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – You can lose weight on a diet of chocolate chip cookies.

It sounds crazy, but that’s the claim of a fitness trainer who spent eight years helping Hollywood celebrities tone their bods.

Dino Nowak says his “Chocolate Chip Cookie Diet” involves eating a cookie at breakfast, lunch and dinner – in addition to balanced meals of fresh vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins.

Combined with exercise four days a week, he “guarantees you’ll lose weight” on the diet.

Nowak came up with the Chocolate Chip Cookie Diet to deflate fad diets which claim to help you lose weight with some miracle food like cabbage soup or apple cider vinegar. He says the key to his diet is the balanced meals – not the cookies – and that’s the case for all those fad diets too.

In his words, “Every diet does the same thing: It modifies your eating behavior, which helps you lose weight. But it’s the cabbage soup or the chocolate chip cookies that get the credit.”

He discusses other diet finds in the new book, The Final Makeover: Your 40 Day Guide to Personal Fitness (Strang/Siloam).
