TWINKIE DIET HELPS NUTRITION PROFESSOR LOSE 27 POUNDS
For 10 weeks, Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University, ate junk food and sugary cake snacks every three hours, instead of meals. Two-thirds of his total intake came from junk food. Haub’s started his cake diet FOCUSING ON PORTION CONTROL. Haub said: "I'm eating to the point of need and pushing the plate or wrapper away,". He lost 27 pounds
--Haub limited himself to 1,800 calories (800 calories less than his norm)
--His body mass index went from 28.8, considered overweight, to 24.9.
--Haub's "bad" cholesterol, or LDL, dropped 20 percent
--"good" cholesterol, or HDL, increased by 20 percent.
--He reduced the level of triglycerides, which are a form of fat, by 39 percent.
Blatner, a spokeswoman for the American Dietetic Association, said she's not surprised to hear the health markers improved even on junk food. "WHEN YOU LOSE WEIGHT, regardless of how you're doing it -- even if it's with packaged foods, generally you will see these MARKERS IMPROVE WHEN WEIGHT LOSS HAS IMPROVED," said Blatner.
Haub said, before his Twinkie diet,.
"I was eating healthier, but I wasn't healthy. I was eating too much."
GIVE ME A BREAK .
Studies like these drive me INSANE. Who pays for these studies? Haub is:
1. professor of human nutrition,
2. has a long history of healthy eating and exercise,
3. and in comparison with the population… has a healthy mindset
It doesn't surprise me that Haub (professor of nutrition) can push away junk food when ‘full’ because his psyche would be screaming DANGER DANGER
Most of us with weight issues, would act like addicts and binge.
It’s like asking a vegetarian to go on a red meat diet to see if they can lose weight
