Mark Haub is a professor at Kansas State University who lost weight while on a "Twinkie diet". He actually ate almost nothing but Twinkies, Doritos chips, sugary cereals, Oreos, etc., for 10 weeks.
Despite this diet of supposed "junk food", he actually lost weight - 27 pounds in two months.
So is the conclusion that you should follow a similar diet?
Absolutely not! The way that Mark Haub lost weight, was that he exercised extremely stringent portion control, and thus was able to limit his calorific intake. He lost weight, because when on the "Twinkie diet", he was only eating 1,800 calories per day, as opposed to his usual 2,600 calories.
If you were to try the "Twinkie diet" yourself, it's unlikely that you would be able to use the same level of stringent portion control - so the diet wouldn't do you any good, and there's a very good chance that you would actually end-up gaining weight.
So the real lesson of Mark Haub's experiment is, I think, that reducing the calories that you eat results in a weight loss, even with a less than perfect diet.
In my book, Weight Loss Journey, I of course talk about ways to reduce calories which are hopefully more satisfying, more enjoyable, and a whole lot healthier than the "Twinkie diet".
