Food Experiment: He Ate Only Candy For A Whole Week

what is it like to eat candy for evey meal?

I’m not a big candy eater because I’m not a fan of rotting out my teeth; however, I know a lot of people who love that sweet stuff. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to eat nothing but candy for a whole week? How would it affect your hunger? Would it make you have mood swings and go nuts?

I had a friend in high school that got caught smoking. As her punishment, her parents made her smoke a whole pack of cigarettes in one sitting. To this day, she’s never smoked again. She says she gets sick just from the smell of the smoke. I wonder if we ate candy for every meal for a whole week straight if it would make us hate candy forever. With all the problems in the world today, it seems silly to ponder such ridiculous questions, but still, I’m curious.

Robb Posch wondered the same thing, so he conducted the ultimate food experiment. After pigging out on a combination of Taco Bell and Pizza Hut one night, he began a week of eating nothing but candy for every single meal. Each day he documented his hunger level, his mental stability and how much he still liked candy, all on a scale of 1-10. Quite honestly, just reading about this gave me a stomachache. Each one of his meals consisted of things like M&Ms, peppermint candies, Sweet Tarts, Nestle crunch balls, Reese’s Pieces, Hershey Kisses, Pez candy from the Pez dispenser, and of course, chocolate covered cherries (after all, you gotta get some fruit in there, right?).

This is a fascinating and funny experiment to read about. You can go right over to Zug to check it out first hand. At the end of it all, Robb made a couple of conclusions. First, at the end of a week, part of his brain was definitely “starved to death.” Next, candy is not filling. And, lastly, candy is the new diet to try in 2011 since he apparently lost four pounds during that week.
