AMAZIAN OF THE WEEK! The Twinkie Diet

November 8th, 2010 | 3 comments | Posted by Jen

No, we are not talking about “Twinkies” in the “yellow on the outside, white on the inside”-sense. We are talking 1,800 calories a day of Twinkies, Doritos, Oreos, and other “foods” that come in crinkly, plastic, environment-hating packages. We are talking a diet of junk food that one nutrition professor undertook for 10 weeks that not only made him lose 27 lbs., but also lowered his BMI from overweight to normal, dropped his bad cholesterol by 20 percent and increased his good cholesterol by 20 percent, and reduced his triglycerides–or fat–levels by 39 percent.

Don’t get us wrong. This diet is fucking disgusting.

BUT.

One man’s Twinkie is another man’s Kyochon fried chicken, and it gives us hope that there’s a way to keep eating some of our favorite foods without one of our relatives at the next family gathering making that dreaded but inevitable observation that’s somehow okay to make when you’re Asian:

“[Insert Asian-Language Exclamation Word of your choice]–YOU GOT SO FAT!”

  3. [...] Disgrasian.com – In my quest to discover old and new things about Asian Culture, I explore some of the blogs on Rice Bowl Journals. So, it’s possible to lose weight on the “Twinkie Diet”? Makes perfect sense, actually. You can easily keep track of calories when you eat foods that display its total calories on the label. Will this diet give you all the nutrients you need? I doubt it, and this would only be a very temporary diet and not a permanent one. [...]
