Compared to many on this forum, I'm no expert. I will say it does matter where the calories are coming from. Both ways will lead to weight loss, but our bodies use different macronutrients differently. In order to have optimal health and weightloss it is better to eat with a "will this give me nutrients" goal in mind. Don't stump your toe though if you have something once in a while. I personally don't add food on the days I excercise, but if you do weight lifting or resistence training (to gain muscle) eating more protein on those days supposedly helps. Water, Water, Water, Water.
