Junk Food Diet

Junk foods are typically ready-to-eat convenience foods containing high levels of saturated fats, salt, or sugar, and little or no fruit, vegetables, or dietary fiber; junk foods thus have little or no health benefits.
Twinkies, Oreos, and Doritos—the new weight-loss diet? Well, a steady stream of junk food worked for Mark Haub, a Kansas State University nutrition professor who, after two months, shed a hefty 27 pounds, CNN reports. Haub went from ingesting 2,600 calories a day to 1,800. "I'm losing weight and my cholesterol is improving by eating those foods," Haub told Dubansky.

Haub said before the diet, he was eating up to 3,000 calories a day and weighed 201 pounds.

“Some people, like health care professionals, are saying my weight loss is unhealthy.”
“This diet is based on refined, processed foods that lack essential vitamins and nutrients, as well as antioxidants and fiber,” she said. This junk food diet may help you shed a few pounds, but ultimately can reduce your chances for longevity.”
Haub said the weight loss wasn’t his initial concern – he wanted to focus on issues like cardiovascular markers, but he is pleased with the results.
