I've always heard you could eat whatever you wanted if it fit in your calorie limit, so let's say the only thing you eat is Oreos 24/7 without tiring of them. Would there be a difference in your weight loss if you ate 1500 calories of oreos vs eating 1500 healthy calories? Is it really just about the numbers or is there more to it?

IN BEFORE BLOOODBATH.

you can do it but your body deserves better fuel.
May 29, 2013 7:09 PM
Yes, 1500 calories is 1500 calories. Would you be full? Would you continue to have energy? Would your health improve or decline? Those are totally different.

IN....for the incoming science.

Sure! It's possible, theoretically. However, it'd be rather difficult because oreo cookies aren't very filling or satisfying so it would be difficult to eat a proper amount of calories per day of only oreos (without overeating) and actually feel good and satisfied. Oreos also aren't very nutritious and don't give your body all of the nutrients it needs, so a diet of only oreos would be a very unbalanced diet and would probably leave someone not feeling very good and possibly sick after a while.

Lol yes but how much muscle tone and toning up your body would Oreos do? Probably not much?! Lol

in...to be a wise a#$

as long as you wash your Oreos down with raspberry ketones you will be OK

I think you might lose some weight...but you would be completely malnourished and probably feel like crap!
May 29, 2013 7:11 PM
This would only be fun for the first day.

I don't think this'll be any sort of bloodbath.

Technically, yes. But no one's living for long on only oreo cookies. At 1500 calories that's 30 Oreos. That's a tasty night of shame eating, but it's not anything that'll get you through your day. Much less several.

And now I really want Oreo cookies.

To answer your hypothetical question, yes, all that matters for weight loss is calories. But no one recommends exclusively eating cookies.

You can cut the oreo calories in half if you pull them apart first, then only lick the icing out. That way, you can eat 3000 cals worth of oreos a day. Imagine the joy!

This also works with ice cream. If you eat ice cream from the bottom of the carton, you will actually lose weight. It's called "negative calories".

Let me add before this gets to out of hand that, NO I am not going to do this, I love my fruit and veggies, but my curiosity was killing me.

You can. However you would lose muscle mass as well as fat mass, skewing the numbers, you would risk overworking your pancreas, you would be tired most of the time due to insulin spikes and dips, and you would be incredibly hungry because of the lack of food mass.
May 29, 2013 7:14 PM
You'd be mega hungry. Plus, you'd be lacking tons of nutrients. Calories are calories, though, technically. I wouldn't do it.

malarky! Oreos are an essential part of any nutritious and wholesome diet...
May 29, 2013 7:16 PM
The studies haven't been fully analyzed yet on Oreos, but I'd be willing to volunteer for the next round. Although I'd prefer Twizzlers...

This is like asking. can I fuel my car with high test octain, or some black market Russian vodka.

Sure they will both get you were you are going, but the vodka ride is going to be a hell of a lot more fun. . . till you blow your engine out.

Yes, but you would probably feel like crap, become deficient in a lot of vitamins , and other stuff.. so I wouldn't recommend it.
May 29, 2013 7:18 PM
Firstly, you'd probably OD on sugar, and die... At least I would, if I ate ONLY cookies.

And, I would assume you could lose with a straight Oreo diet, but your body won't thank you so much... Eating salads, fresh fruits, chicken, fish, and more foods I don't want to write, will both satisfy your hunger and provide you with the proper balances your body needs... You'd probably feel happier and overall healthier eating all these foods compared to only Oreos... Your body would not receive proper nutrition, you will not feel satisfied, etc.



But then again...

this guy did it... But then again, he drank a protein shake, took multivitamin, and still involved veggies into his daily diet... There's no way to say that it's good/bad, but you still need to give your body essential nutrients to function!

May 29, 2013 7:19 PM
You'd feel like ****, you'd suffer vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and you'll lose tons of muscle mass because Oreos have almost no protein to speak of.

But you will lose weight.

No one says "eat anything at all you want." People say "eat whatever you want as long as it fits your nutrient goals."
