Bonnie at the Ethicurean saw a kiosk for Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet at the Food and Society Conference. The cookies “controls your hunger so you can stick to your diet!” Seems wrong and oh-so American to combine weight loss with cookies. I don’t know how to begin explaining the levels of wrongness.
The website says: “Are Dr. Siegal’s cookies delicious? Are they magical? Do they perform miracles? No. They taste good but we wouldn’t call them delicious. Delicious cookies make people fat. As for magic and miracles… well… you probably know the answer.”
