i wasn't able to read the whole article, but i have a hard time believing it. while calories is very important, healthy food is important for the many health benefits. in the short term, eating healthy produce (and other very filling healthy foods) instead of junk food helps keep us satisfied on a diet. i can't eat pop tarts for breakfast. they might only be 200 cals, but 5 min later i'm asking myself, did i eat breakfast? there's no staying power! plus the lack of energy anyone would have. we just can't do our best w/o if we are tired before we even start.
