…she’s going to laugh in your face.
|Do NOT be fooled.
When we bought our treadmill from Costco, it came with a bonus dieting system. I kid you not, it is called the Cookie Diet.
Me and Mr. T had a good laugh over this. How can you pair something like that with a treadmill? We got the “cookies” a couple of weeks ago.
The program says to lose weight, skip meals (!) and instead eat one of the cookies (every couple of hours, if I remember correctly) and drink a full glass of water with it. You’ll be full and satisfied, and won’t want to eat anything else.
Okay, first of all: I am not a fan of meal replacement diets. It’s not realistic and, I’m pretty sure, it’s not healthy. We just decided these 100-calorie “cookies” would be good snacks for in between meals. But that was before I tried one.
I do not know how this company gets away with calling these things “cookies.” I’ve never eaten anything before that tastes like…nothing. It was weird. I threw the one I brought with me to work in the trash after one bite. Mr. T actually ate a couple because he felt like he had to since we’d opened the package. Each package has several cookies inside (for eating throughout the day). Um, no. I threw the opened package away.
But we still have, I think, seven more packages of these “cookies” in our pantry. I hate to throw away food.
Then again, I don’t really think these belong in the “food” category.
