What You'll Eat
On Dr. Siegal’s “10X” Cookie Diet plan, you’ll eat one or two specially-made “hunger-controlling” cookies every two hours, for a total of nine a day. Varieties include cinnamon oatmeal, chocolate brownie, or maple granola.
You’re also allowed one “real” food meal per day. The options are endless, as long as you don’t exceed 500 to 700 calories. An official Cookie Diet cookbook suggests everything from chicken pot pie to moo shu pork.
If nine cookies sounds excessive, there’s the “classic” track, featuring cookies with more calories. You’ll eat no more than six a day, and only when hunger strikes. Available in blueberry, banana, coconut, and other flavors, they differ slightly in texture and taste from the 10X variety. You still supplement with the homemade meal.
Sick of cookies? Trade two for one of Siegal’s appetite-blunting shakes. Vanilla, chocolate, and crème brulée are among the flavors.

Slim-Fast is a reasonable approach to dieting with convenient, grab-and-go shakes and bars. It's fairly easy to follow, but it's not very heart-healthy.
Nutrisystem determines portions, prepares and delivers your meals, and tells you what to eat and when.
On this diet, eat 5 Medifast products each day and one self-prepared meal. Medifast aids short-term weight loss, but isn't sustainable enough to last.
