I am sure everyone has seen the twinkie diet, candy diet, and doughnut diet and thinks that this must be ridiculous; however, a Professor of Nutrition at Kansas State University has proved that this may not be the case. Every three hours for two months he ate a diet of only snack cakes and doritos and lost 27 pounds. You're probably thinking that there must be a catch: The catch is that you cannot eat more than 1,800 calories a day. One pack of twinkies has 150 calories. He took vitamins, ate mostly junk food with a daily protein shake and only a serving or two of vegetables. The calorie cut accounts for the weight loss, but what's interesting is that his LDL (bad cholesterol) dropped and HDL (the good kind) increased. His body fat dropped from 33.4 to 24.9 percent. It seems like it works, at least in the short-term, without any harsh health effects.
