Man loses 47 lbs in 2 months on junk food diet
Point: ok to eat junk food if you count calories
What he did: go on a month long junk food binge
What happened: he lost 47 lbs and tests indicate his health improved
This story has been all over the news and it has stirred quite a bit of controversy. A nutritionist named Mark Haub decided to do an experiment and the results shocked even him. He dubbed it the Twinkie diet. And it’s making people mad. He says nutrition doesn’t matter, it’s portion size that’s killing us.
So maybe you can eat your junk food and still be healthy — just not as much of it. To make sure, the professor tracked his calories (I wish I knew what web site he uses but I have tried Lose It! which has helped me). He ate a lot less calories than he burned. He didn’t even exercise.
The professor has been all over the news and is considering a book deal, but he doesn’t recommend that you eat junk food to lose weight. But my thought is, if you can’t stop eating it, go ahead. Just eat less of it.
