Eat Twinkie's, Lose Weight

Lose weight and lower cholesterol by eating from the vending machine. CNN reports that Mark Haub, professor of nutrition at Kansas State University ate Twinkie's, Nutty Bars and powdered donuts for 10 weeks.

Haub's "bad" cholesterol, or LDL, dropped 20 percent and his "good" cholesterol, or HDL, increased by 20 percent. He reduced the level of triglycerides, which are a form of fat, by 39 percent.
