Nice avatar 'gello.
I heard about this last month. Every "nutrionist" in the country was coming out to condemn the guy. If he was a witch, he would have been burned at the stake... LOL
His premise was interesting, but it's misleading in the story.
First off, he dropped his overall calorie intake to below 1800 calories a day. To achieve that, he ate (1) twinkie, not a package, at a time and he also had some veggies and a protein shake a day to spread out the time he could go before eating again.
His cholesterol numbers were down/up respectively and his trigs were down, which was interesting though.
Perhaps this will eventually open up more mysteries of how the body works and how people can get healthier by eating other than FDA approved pyramid foods.
