<p>MCLEAN, Va., <chron>Jan. 6</chron> /CNW/ -- <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s Direct Nutritionals, LLC, the global distributor of <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s COOKIE DIET® brand products, today announced that, beginning Friday, Walgreens.com will begin offering all five flavors of <person>Dr. Sanford Siegal</person>'s hunger-controlling beverage shake mixes, and <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s Cookie Diet Book: How a Doctor and His Cookie Helped 500,000 People Lose Weight Fast (2009, Hyde Park Publishing Ltd., 320 pages, ISBN 978-0-9822728-3-19999). Walgreens.com already carries all five flavors of <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s COOKIE DIET® brand cookies.</p>
<p/>
<p>"Walgreens.com is now the only web site besides CookieDiet.com to carry all flavors of <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s Cookie Diet cookies and shake mixes, and <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s latest book," said <person>Matthew Siegal</person>, president and CEO of <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s Direct Nutritionals, LLC. "Now, whether dieters prefer to keep their hunger in check with a food or beverage that contains no drugs, Walgreens.com and CookieDiet.com are the places to look online."</p>
<p/>
<p>Physician, author, and weight-loss expert <person>Sanford Siegal</person>, D.O., M.D., developed the concept of a diet based on a hunger-controlling food in the early 1970s while writing a book about substances in food that are particularly satisfying of hunger. Based on his research, he engineered a formula to curb hunger and enable his patients to stick to the low-calorie diet that he advocates. After a few years of experimentation in his family's kitchen, <person>Dr. Siegal</person> developed a particular mixture of amino acids that resulted from the combination of certain food substances. He baked his formula into a cookie and gave it to a few patients. <person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s COOKIE DIET® was an overnight success. Shortly thereafter, he created his shake mixes which, when added to water and ice in a blender, produce a cool, hunger-controlling beverage. By the mid-1980s, his Miami-based medical practice had grown to include 14 clinics and he was supplying his cookies and shakes to hundreds of other physicians throughout <location>North America</location>.</p>
<p/>
<p>"Of course, the concept of a beverage to satisfy hunger and help someone stick to their diet isn't new. I created my shakes, for example, several decades ago," said <person>Dr. Siegal</person>. "But having my shakes, cookies, and latest book all available at Walgreens.com, one of the most popular shopping web sites, makes them more accessible than ever."</p>
<p/>
<p>In 2007, <person>Dr. Siegal</person> began offering his cookies, shake beverage mixes, and other products through web site <a href="http://www.CookieDiet.com">www.CookieDiet.com</a> (which has more than 116,000 members) and retail stores.</p>
<p/>
<p><person>Dr. Siegal</person>'s Cookie Diet Book was published in <chron>June 2009</chron>. In addition to Walgreens.com, the book is available at Amazon.com, BN.com, Barnes & Noble stores, and independent booksellers.</p>
