How to loose 27 pounds in 10 weeks by eating Twinkies,.

http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/11/08/twinkie.diet.professor/index.html

"For 10 weeks, Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University, ate one of these sugary cakelets every three hours, instead of meals. To add variety in his steady stream of Hostess and Little Debbie snacks, Haub munched on Doritos chips, sugary cereals and Oreos, too.


"Haub's "bad" cholesterol, or LDL, dropped 20 percent and his "good" cholesterol, or HDL, increased by 20 percent. He reduced the level of triglycerides, which are a form of fat, by 39 percent."

"There seems to be a disconnect between eating healthy and being healthy," Haub said. "It may not be the same. I was eating healthier, but I wasn't healthy. I was eating too much.."

"For 10 weeks, Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University, ate one of these sugary cakelets every three hours, instead of meals....


I wonder what an examination of his funding sources would show... snack food industry shill is what I'm guessing?


"There seems to be a disconnect between eating healthy and being healthy," Haub said. "It may not be the same. I was eating healthier, but I wasn't healthy. I was eating too much.."


So why does he not simply eat less of "healthy" food instead... oh yeah, because that is not sensational enough.

A few less sensational items overlooked in the previous synopsis:

"For a class project, Haub limited himself to less than 1,800 calories a day. A man of Haub's pre-dieting size usually consumes about 2,600 calories daily. So he followed a basic principle of weight loss: He consumed significantly fewer calories than he burned...

Two-thirds of his total intake came from junk food. He also took a multivitamin pill and drank a protein shake daily. And he ate vegetables, typically a can of green beans or three to four celery stalks."

Mary, you are absolutely correct. The summary at the start of the article is totally misleading (not to mention the headline). Also, this sentence:
"His premise: That in weight loss, pure calorie counting is what matters most -- not the nutritional value of the food."
is largely overlooked.
