We’ll get back on track with our stress conversation early next week, but those who know me know that I wouldn’t bite my lip on Kansas professor Mark Haub’s Twinkie Diet forever. 

Well of course I have a response – one that’s been in the works for a while. 

For those of you who don’t know, Haub’s Twinkie Diet has gone wildly viral on the internet.  He lost 27 pounds in 2 months eating nothing but blatant junk food – from Nutty Bars to Doritos, on a calorie-restricted diet.  He lost weight, had improvements in his lipid profile, and more.  He basically set out on this experiment to prove, once and for all, that the most important thing when it comes to losing weight and improving your health is calories, calories, and calories. 

Well, Click Here to read my special Twinkie Diet Report, and if you think that Haub’s advice to ditch quality and count calories is potentially very harmful advice, please pass the link on to others via e-mail, blogs, Facebook, etc. so that they get the other side of the story before they embark on a similar adventure and royally screw themselves in yet another episode of epic diet fail.   

Fight viral nonsense with viral sense.  Friends don’t let friends think that it’s all about calories.     

Also check out this 180 Metabolism post featuring the work of Sandy Szwarc.  This alone is enough to completely obliterate Haub’s moronic beliefs.
