Lose Weight by Eating Twinkies?!
What if you could eat a Twinkie every 3 hours and actually LOSE weight? Kansas State University Professor Mark Haub did just that! His “diet” was more of an experiment to prove that eating healthy doesn’t get you to lose weight; reducing your caloric intake does.
The reason Haub actually lost weight while he was on his “Twinkie diet” is because Twinkies were pretty much ALL he ate. He had previously tried eating healthy for a while, but he wasn’t seeing any results. That was because no matter how healthy he was eating, he was still hadn’t reduced the number of calories he was eating every day.
Reducing his caloric intake by eating just a few Twinkies a day helped him lose 27 lbs. in 10 weeks, raise his good cholesterol, and lower his bad cholesterol! Crazy.
I understand how reducing your calories results in weight loss, but you’d think that all the fat, calories, and other nasty ingredients in Twinkies would still negatively affect his cholesterol. Not so, I guess.
While this may sound promising, I don’t think anyone should really live off Twinkies to get skinny. If you’re looking to decrease your caloric intake, try eating some negative calorie foods. These are foods that contain so few calories that you actually burn more calories by chewing and eating them than they contain!
