After a documentary that rocked the junk-food industry, Super Size Me, an American doctor is proposing an “academic demonstration” where the donuts, chips and hamburgers are not missing.
A nutritionist, Mark Haub, says he managed to lose 27 pounds in 60 days with a diet based exclusively on fast-food dishes. Donuts, chocolate bars, chips and hamburgers, the first of any nutritionist banned foods when you are on a diet; they all became the American’s ally in his struggle with weight.
Haub argues that before trying to test fast food regime, he also tested healthy diet, but the results were not immediate.
Because high levels of cholesterol in the body and blood are the main side effects of such an extremely diet, Professor Haub said that he is watching daily his body mass index, blood pressure, cholesterol levels and blood glucose.
“There seems to be a disconnect between eating healthy and being healthy,” Haub said. “It may not be the same. I was eating healthier, but I wasn’t healthy. I was eating too much.”
He says that after this experiment will not write a book about how he managed to weaken, but the regime is an “academic demonstration”, which aims to change how people think about eating fast food.
A recent American study show that a diet which consists predominantly hamburgers, french fries, soft drinks and sugar is leading to altered metabolism and predisposes consumers to antisocial behavior, having a similar effect on the body as like as heroin, morphine or nicotine.
