The best part of the article is that he doesn't draw any conclusions. In fact, he specifically says he's frustrated that he can't draw any conclusions from such a limited set of data.

Science! It's not magic!

Hey have you eaten at Broadway Grill? This sounds like the Specials board...

Of course his stomach weight loss was offset by the 5 lb open sore in his mouth that grew from eating so many salty chips.

It's calories - at least in terms of weight loss.

You could eat three Big Macs a day - I think they're 700 calories a piece, too lazy to look it up - and nothing else. That's 2100 calories.

You burn off 500 through, say, running on a treadmill each day.

You'd lose weight, even eating those burgers. Now, you'd probably feel like shit, but it would work.

It's not "The Twinkie Diet." It's the "Eat Fewer Calories" diet. Just like any diet that works. Combine cutting calories with eating more frequently, which is supposed to speed up your metabolism, and sure, fine. You'll lose weight, eventually, if you can keep it up. It's just as valid - and just as sure to fail when you just don't feel like doing it any more - as any other diet.

Ugh. It's also fucking gross.

Besides, Twinkies aren't what they used to be. They've tried to make them "healthy," or something, but they used to be a thing of greasy beauty, and now they're really dry. Twinkies or Hostess Cupcakes, a meatball sub, and a cream soda--favourite take away meal EVER in 1978.

Ummm. Twinkie diets kill, particularly gay people if the Twinkie dieter is Catholic, likes to jump through windows, and is armed.

Kidding. What really kills are Catholic juries who believe that depression is an excuse to murder two people, shooting them in the head while they lie dying from the other bullets that you've pumped into their body - all because you were "to moral of a man" to punch the mayor in the nose. You gotta love that Catholic logic - anything to support the execution of gay men, I guess.

And by the way - this study is from Kansas State. That's the same university that anti-gay goober Walter Schumm is from. Ok. Now I'm really thinking targeting the gays is involved. If you see someone inhaling Twinkies and you're gay, I'd run!
