A two month experiment proves that it is very achievable to lose weight while eating like crap.
Nutrition professor Mark Haub, who teaches at Kansas State University wanted to see if eating a reduced calory diet full of junk food and the occasional piece of fruit could help him lose weight.
Not only did he finish up losing a bit of weight, he ended up losing a lot of weight, 27lbs in only eight weeks.
urthermore, his blood level of bad cholesterol dropped, and his blood level of good quality cholesterol increased.
Did he exercise to help weight loss? He says he did not do anything that he would not normally do.
His diet consisted of things that can be purchased from a vending machine, including: cookies, brownies and chips.
His moral of the story is that it is not what you eat, but how much of it you do eat.
