But different foods are going to have a different effect on satiety and body composition. 2,000 calories of steak, eggs and potatoes is going to have a profoundly different impact on health and satiety than 2,000 calories of french fries and soda. And overeating 200 calories of tenderloin is probably going to give you a "better" kind of weight gain than 200 extra calories of funnel cake. No one ever said all foods have the same effect on the "CO" portion of the equation, either. Fruit and steak is going to elicit a different effect on your thyroid than soybean-oil-fried-chicken, especially over time.
Like I said, nothing new here.
