I think we all know that that’s not so true. Eating junk makes for a not-as-nice body, no matter what your caloric intake is. Ever seen the pictures of people comparing “when I ate junk a lot” to “now that I don’t” when they’re at the same weight? It’s not just about quantity of food; quality is just as important.
Granted, when you have a healthy lifestyle you can still maintain your body’s appearance even if you have some treats now and then. Eating one Snicker’s bar isn’t going to make you fat. But obviously having junk a lot is more likely to make you gain weight.
That’s like when people go “fat-free” on everything. Fat is not necessary bad. Depends on what kind of fat. And you’ll really only gain weight from it if you have too much. Especially of the bad kind, simply because your body doesn’t know what to do with the “bad” fat, so it stores it in fat cells instead of glycogen in muscles. Moderation is key, though. If you’re eating thousands of calories of healthy fat a day you’ll gain weight also, simply because your body won’t know what else to do with that energy. It sure as hell doesn’t wanna waste it!
