As long as you're eating healthy foods, you can have as many calories as you want.
Quite simply not true. If a person eats more cals than they burn, they will gain fat. Period.
Say a person burns 2500 cals a day, and eats a diet of pure garbage, fast food, candy, and chips, but this garbage only totals 2500 cals per day, their weight will stay the same. If they only eat 2300 cals of junk, they will actually lose weight.
On the other hand, say a person eats like a complete healthfood freak (like me and they burn 3800 cals a day. If that person (or I) eat 4000 cals a day, they will gain fat ! This was a lesson that I had to prove to myself, first hand. Because believe me, I can eat a truckload of healthy food, and arive at whatever # of cals I'm shooting for. I have an endless appetite.... which is good, as I'd like to build as much muscle mass as humanly posible for my age and genetics.
The only difference that healthy food over junk food will make, is that the person will likely feel better, have more energy, have a stronger immune system, and "posibly" live longer.
