I just knew it!

I have found another proof of the existence of a just and merciful God. It is called the Twinkie diet. Just as I was about to lose all hope the truth has been revealed by a guy named Professor Mark Haub, who teaches nutrition at Kansas State University. He has let it be known that you can lose weight by eating nothing but Twinkies. Dr. Haub's working theory is that moderation, not the specific foods you eat, is the key to weight loss. After eight weeks of eating 1800 calories worth of Twinkies per day, he dropped almost 30 pounds. According to my calculations that is 11.25 twinkies per day. Ahhh, life is good!

Yeah..ok. but look up what the Twinkie defense was, Dan White said that eating Twinkies caused him to kill a few people.....

Go K-State! Actually I am a KU fan. But if someone from Kansas comes up with something cool I will root for them.

Can you image eating a dozen of Twinkies a day for 8 weeks? I would be green by the end.

Look at the bright side. After you die from eating a diet of Twinkies, you'll be so loaded with preservative that they won't have to embalm you.

Have to go with Jennifer on that one - you will lose weight when you are dead - even though the loss of teeth will only shed a few grams ;-)

I was going to say the same thing as Tancho- being from SSan Francsico twinkies are dangerous.

Haha @Jennifer! Agree. :-)

You have it wrong.You have to deep fry them first!

If you eat the same thing day after day, you will lose weight. Why not be something you enjoy? However I would choose beignets, the wonderful fried dough with powdered sugar of New Orleans. With coffee. 3x a day. After a week of indigestive bliss I would start to lose weight but happily. Good post.
