November 8, 2010: 09:50 AM EST

A nutrition professor at Kansas State University has shed 27 pounds on a junk food diet whose main sources of sustenance were Hostess Twinkies, Little Debbie’s Zebra Cake, Duncan Hines Brownie Chewy Fudge and Doritos Cool Ranch Chips – but whose calorie intake was limited to 1,800 a day. Mark Haub acknowledged he also are a nutritious protein shake, took a multivitamin and ate a couple of servings of vegetables each day. And he continued his regular exercise routine. On that regimen, it took ten weeks to lose 27 pounds. In addition, his body mass index dropped from 28.8 to a more normal 24.9; his LDL (“bad cholesterol”) level dropped 20 percent, good cholesterol (HDL) went up 20 percent, and blood triglycerides went down 39 percent.
