Professor Mark Haub of Kansas State University ate a sugary and fatty snack every three hours for two months and actually lost 27 pounds.
He says its calorie counting that matters the most, not the nutritional value.
He ate 1,800 calories worth of Twinkies, brownies, Doritos, candy bars and much more every day, but he doesn't recommend any one else try this diet.
The Kansas State Nutrition Professor wanted to prove to his students that weight loss is merely "calories in versus calories out." (He reduced his caloric intake while eating junk food.)
At the same time, he says he feels great, has good cholesterol, and no problems with blood pressure.
So, is it okay to give up nutrition for a time - to lose weight & get "better" health?
Are sugary foods really the problem in our society - or is it how much we eat?\\
