Having yo-yo’ed my weight over the last four years in an attempt to get back into shape, I found this article very interesting.
A few things to note:
- The professor isn’t recommending this diet, just observing the effects of calorie reduction.
- Not only did he lose weight, but his body chemistry (LDL, HDL, Triglycerides) all improved on the junk food.
- Exercise wasn’t mentioned. It’s all about the intake of calories.
I’m sure the professor would encourage exercise as a part of everyone’s overall health. It’s just that he studies nutrition, so that’s what he measured and reported.
The bottom line, though… Stop eating so much.
Where’d I put those Twinkies?
