Please bear with me, faithful reader(s) … I’m the process of considering a format change to my blog. More on that perhaps tomorrow. In the meantime, I thought I’d share this CNN.com article with you all.
I understand that the professor says right in the article that he still doesn’t recommend anyone follow this diet, but COME ON. We all know there are a million people out there who will jump on this (let’s pray he doesn’t become Twinkie’s Jared) and follow it in hopes of getting into a bikini for that wintertime cruise.
Seriously, world of media … if you see that someone came up with a dumb-assed scheme like this that happened to succeed, please consider the fact that there are a lot of people out there who may not “get” that this is a terrible idea. He could have done the same experiment with healthier options – eating oatmeal and Kashi every few hours; that sort of thing. But no, let’s eat Twinkies all day every day for 10 weeks and see how that goes. Brilliant.
