Truth is sometime stranger than fiction, and this is a true story! CNN revealed this week, an experiment by a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University. The professor lived on Twinkies and powdered donuts for 10 weeks. The result: He lost 27 pounds.

Mark Haub’s convenience store diet” involved downing a Twinkie every three hours, occasionally alternating with Little Debbie snacks, Doritos and Oreos for variety. Haub’s experiment upheld his premise, that in weight loss, pure calorie counting is what matters most — not the nutritional value of the food. But, you should know that his “bad” cholesterol, or LDL, dropped 20% and his “good” cholesterol, or HDL, increased by 20%.

I just know Chuck is gonna wanna try this one! What is the most creative diet that yo have ever heard of or tried?

    Did “bad” cholesterol really drop? And “good” cholesterol increased?

      According to this experiment with just the one doctor for 10 weeks, YES!

    Wow! Kinda hard to believe. I don’t think I could eat a Twinkie every three hours, though….

    I could very happily live on that kind of diet. I’ve always loved Twinkies.
