Online PR News – 15-September-2010 – – R&D Diet Cookie is conducting a study to evaluate the effectiveness of their diet program compared to (1) a strict low carb program (Atkins) and (2) a combination of the two programs.
R&D Diet Cookie is seeking people who want to lose weight by participating in a web-based weight-loss study using their diet cookies. Participants will follow a weight loss plan made available over the Internet for 12 weeks. To qualify for the study participants must be:
• Overweight or obese (BMI between 25 and 40)
• Between the ages of 18 and 64
• A non-smoker
• Able to use the computer proficiently on a daily basis
• In overall good health
“There is some evidence that combining an atkins-type diet with the R&D Cookie Diet is more effective than either diet alone” says Dorothy Palmer, Research Scientist with R&D Diet Cookie. If that is true, she added, they would like to find out for sure and pass that information on to our customers.
If interested in participating in the study, Email: RDDietCookieStudy@Scientist.com to request a Study Eligibility Questionnaire and Application.
R&D Diet Cookie is a weight loss program that promotes rapid weight loss. “There is nothing more motivating than seeing the pounds fall off quickly when you weigh” says Ms. Palmer. “If you are otherwise healthy, the cookie is designed to replace daytime meals… breakfast, lunch and snacks. They contribute about 400 calories total and completely eliminate hunger and cravings. "The hardest part is convincing yourself that losing weight quickly is OK" she claims.
Their website http://www.RandDDietCookie.com describes the cookies as being good for you. “… packed with the best, high quality protein blends, fiber, and good carbs, low in sodium, naturally low in cholesterol, and an excellent source of Omega 3’s and Vitamin E.” The effectiveness, claims Ms. Palmer, is the combination of the amino acids and proteins they use, the fiber, and the absence of any ingredient that promotes hunger.
