Melbourne Woman Drops 30kgs On The Cookie Diet

Melbourne Woman Drops 30kgs On The Cookie Diet

When you think of diets, you'll naturally think of green smoothies that taste awful or portion control that would leave even a child desperate for more. It's usually what's needed to help you shed the kilos and lead a healthier life.

However, one Australian woman is here to show you that you can rely on your favourite sugary vice and still lose weight.

The 32-year-old from Melbourne was at her heaviest in August last year when she registered 92kg on the scales. She was used to eating massive meals - often with double or triple helpings - and not exercising.

Tarra said: "I was a bit of a bigger girl in my teenage years, but I only really started piling on weight after I started having kids.

"I found it difficult to balance being a new mum with having a healthy lifestyle, so my weight just crept up over the years. I would eat far too much food for someone who wasn't exercising, so it's no surprise I got to my heaviest weight.

The diet consists of consuming nine cookies a day, with each one being just 60 calories - with her first cookie being at 6am, followed by three more before midday, and then three cookies at lunch, and one for afternoon tea.

Now, dinnertime is the only part of the day where Tara is allowed to eat what most people would consider a normal meal, but it has to be healthy, high in protein and low in carbs - usually something like grilled chicken or fish with salad or vegetables.

Tarra said: "I was really skeptical at first. Who could ever lose weight eating cookies? But it was just what my body needed.

"Regular eating intervals helped keep my metabolism rolling to its full effect. I was satisfied, and so I'd no longer be gorging on large meals."

She says she feels like a new woman and wants other people to know that you don't have to give up all the fun stuff when you
