Dr. Mike’s Power Cookie | 17 Day Diet Recipes


This cookie could be breakfast, dessert or a snack – your choice!

You may see some ingredients that aren’t on one of the food cycle lists – don’t worry!  Dr. Mike believes that enjoying treats in moderation is fine and helps you stay consistent on the 17 Day Diet. Remember, this is about a lifestyle change rather than a short-lived diet that would be hard to maintain.


Each cookie supplies 128 calories and can be enjoyed on the Activate, Achieve and Arrive Cycles for breakfast or as a snack.

Each cookie counts as 1 protein and 1 all-natural starch for the 17 Day Diet.
