<p>"Registering our 100,000th CookieDiet.com member is an exciting milestone," said <person>Matthew Siegal</person>, president and CEO of <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s Direct Nutritionals, LLC, which operates CookieDiet.com.  "More than 85 percent of our members indicate that they heard about us from a friend, relative, or co-worker so we know we're doing something right."</p>
<p/>
<p>Last Friday, Google Trends reported that, on that day, more people searched for information related to <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s COOKIE DIET® than for the "balloon boy hoax" story.</p>
<p/>
<p>The initial version of the web site, which was then hosted at CookieDietOnline.com, was primarily an online store. The current version, which was launched in <chron>December 2008</chron> with the shorter URL, CookieDiet.com, introduced numerous robust features intended to educate customers before and during the weight-loss and weight-maintenance phases of their diets.</p>
<p/>
<p>The site's Resources section features <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s® Weight Loss Calculators, a proprietary software suite personally designed by <person>Dr. Siegal</person>. His calculators eliminate the uncertainty inherent in most diets by aiding the user in setting and reaching a realistic goal weight by a specified date. <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s® Weight Loss Calculators are intended to be helpful to any dieter regardless of the particular diet they follow.</p>
<p/>
<p>"In my practice, patients come to us with a definite goal in mind and frequently it's to look good for an upcoming event such as a wedding, vacation, or reunion," said <person>Dr. Siegal</person>. "I designed my weight loss calculators using proprietary algorithms to estimate - based on the dieter's own calorie burn rate - how many calories she would have to consume each day in order to reach her desired weight by the date of her big occasion."</p>
<p/>
<p><person>Dr. Siegal</person> added that his calculators incorporate safeguards to ensure that they don't return unrealistic or unhealthy results.</p>
<p/>
<p>"The last thing anyone needs is another failed attempt to lose weight. If your goal is unrealistic my calculators will say so," added <person>Dr. Siegal</person>.</p>
<p/>
<p>As a condition for membership, CookieDiet.com requires users to agree to consult their doctor before starting any diet.</p>
