Kansas State University professor loses 27 pounds on Twinkie diet

Kansas State University professor loses 27 pounds on Twinkie diet

NOW THAT'S FUNNY

Yes, I know, it sounds like a headline for the Enquirer, but it's true. And the guy has science to back it up.

Mark Haub, a Professor of Human Nutrition at Kansas State University, put himself on a strict diet: one Twinkie every three hours. He gave himself variety by also eating Little Debbie Cakes, sugary cereals, and Doritos.

Dude! No beer?

Mr. Haub was conducting an experiment to prove that it is total calorie consumption, not the nutritional value of food that matters most when trying to control weight. As a scientist, he carefully documented everything he ate, paid attention to portion size, and limited himself to 1800 calories a day. His thesis proved correct: he lost 27 pounds.

In addition, his "bad" cholesterol dropped by 20 percent and his "good" cholesterol increased by 20 percent. Simply reducing his size by 27 pounds had made him healthier. He did eat some vegetables on this diet also, but no meat or whole grains or fruits. Before his junk food diet, Mr. Haub ate what he called a healthy diet that included whole grain fibers, fruits and vegetables. Obviously he was just eating too much.
