Twinkie Diet Sets Terrible Example for Ignorant People

| by

Any of you who saw the movie “He’s Just Not that Into You,” you already know this:

You are the RULE, not the Exception.

You may be asking Ouch, Jen, why are you being so harsh today? Because this story made me really mad. Let me rephrase that: the ignorance in our society today, made me really mad. Did this professor lose weight eating Twinkies? Yes, yes he did. Does that mean you should try it or that it is a good way to lose weight? Absolutely not.

The United States obesity rate is almost at 42%, and we are going to publicize an article making weight loss claims to eating TWINKIES?? Really?

Do I believe him? Sure do. Am I mad at him for it? Not at all. It was a valid experiment which proved his theory true so I give him all of the credit in the world. Am I mad at CNN for running the story? While I don’t like the way they make it seem like this is a good thing, they are doing their jobs so nope, not mad at them.

Jen. Chill out and tell us what you are mad about.

What upsets me about this article is the fact that I know there are so many ignorant people out there reading articles like this and assuming it is ok to kill themselves, and more importantly, their CHILDREN with this junk.

One thing I really hated about the article is that they said the professor had tried losing weight eating health food with no success. What they fail to mention is whether or not he followed the same caloric guidelines in said attempt. I would bet just about anything that he did not.

What are your thoughts on this? Does this bother you or am I getting all worked up over nothing?
