He lost weight by carefully measuring his caloric intake. By removing 800 calories from his daily diet, 2,600 cal/day to 1,800 cal/day, he was able to drop serious poundage while eating pure junk! Somebody give this man an award!
Strangely, none of his other health indicators took a hit: "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."
I really can't tell you how happy I am that this information came out! I'w I'll eat bacon, fried tomatoes, biscuits and gravy every day! (Until my wife finds out and I get into some serious trouble.)
