What are Twinkies and weight loss doing in the same sentence? Well, a diet consisting largely of convenience snack cakes (such as the beloved Twinkie) helped my friend and professor of nutrition Dr. Mark Haub lose weight and improve his health.
In this episode, Dr. Haub shares his experience on his “Twinkie Diet” and delves into difficult questions about weight, health, exercise, and how we can experience wellbeing.
Dr. Mark Haub received his bachelors degree in psychology from Fort Hays State University and his M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in exercise science from the University of Kansas. He completed a postdoctoral fellowship in geriatric nutrition in the Department of Geriatrics from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences and currently is an Associate Professor in the Department of Human Nutrition at Kansas State University where he conducts research to better understand the impact of food on human health and teaches courses pertaining to obesity and substrate metabolism.
