Tom Naughton did a great takedown of it here:

The CNN article lies (surprise, suroprise!). He did not eat a Twinkie every 3 hours instead of meals. Some days he ate no Twinkies and it was very low calorie. He also lost 6 pounds of lean body mass (muscle). He did give his food log and here is one entry:

November 12
Pumpkin Spice Donut
Coffee
Protein shake
Onion Rings
Steak
Broccoli
Macaroni and Cheese
Baked potato casserole
Dynasty Lychees
Baby carrots
Peanut butter cookies
2% milk

A lot of crappy stuff and some good things like steak and broccoli. Hmmm, no Twinkies that day!

Loss of vision in my left eye, cannot think, Speech impaired, and then crushing pain on the right side of my head and throwing up until I dehydrate. . Happens every time...Pain in my head indeed
