A Calorie is a Calorie According to Professor Twinkie

November 22nd, 2010 No Comments Tags: ,

As the saying goes, you are what you eat, right? Interestingly, a brash professor Mark Haub, of human nutrition at Kansas State U conducted an experiment being the sole subject. He wanted to show that to promote weight loss, calorie counting matters most, despite the food source from where the calories come.

Well this sugar daddy ate a steady stream of chips, cakes, cookies, cereals, Twinkies and the works. The hitch was that he limited his daily caloric intake to 1,800 calories, which was reduced from his typical 2,600 calorie a day diet. What did he find? Well in two months he lost 27 pounds. This sounds like the perfect PMS special diet, don’t you think??

I must say that we often get caught up with the “eating healthy” mantra and may get lost in that halo effect by eating to much of the good stuff. It’s true at the end of the day all calories count, every last one. When your intake of calories is less than what you’re burning each day you’ll lose weight. It’s as simple as that.

I know my trusty T & T followers already know why we need to eat a balanced diet, so I won’t go off on that tangent. My hat’s off to Professor Twinkie – Dr. Mark Haub for stepping up to the goodie plate by conducting this study to prove a profound point: A calorie is a calorie is a calorie….and every last one counts.
