    junk-food-dietFor 10 weeks, Mark Haub, a professor of human nutrition at Kansas State University, ate a Twinkie, donut or nutty bar every three hours, instead of meals.

    His premise: That in weight loss, pure calorie counting is what matters most — not the nutritional value of the food.

    The premise held up: On his “convenience store diet,” he shed 27 pounds in two months.

    His body mass index went from 28.8, which is considered overweight, to 24.9, which is normal.

    For a class project, Haub limited himself to less than 1,800 calories a day, but a man of Haub’s pre-dieting size usually consumes about 2,600 calories daily.

    So he followed a basic principle of weight loss: He consumed significantly fewer calories than he burned.
