Many times over the last couples years, as I have been speaking to audiences, I have used the example of losing weight on the Twinkie Diet -- if only a person was cutting down on the total amount of calories they were eating. Well...here's the story of a university professor who did just that! This prof lost 27 pounds in two months by eating mostly snack foods.
Please know I am not adovocating this particular diet. My goal is to get you thinking about the relative importance of "healthy" eating versus our tendency to EAT TOO MUCH OF EVERYTHING!! Science is coming out daily to support the idea that we are eating too many calories...period! And if we focus on reducing our portions, we won't need to concentrate on "healthy" eating quite as much. THAT might be something that keeps us healthier in the long run!
