I probably shouldn't be wasting my time with this right now, considering I have a lot of work due for tomorrow, but it's been a debate of mine for the longest time, and I need to get this off my chest..
Let's make this short and sweet.
I eat -500 nutritional calorie deficit, I will lose weight.
I eat -500 junk food calorie deficit, do I lose weight?
It's like, if I eat -500 calories with strictly junk food, such as mini eggs, candy, chips etc. Would I still cut fat?
Reason why I'm asking, is cause people always say it's calories in vs calories out.. So if I am eating less calories off strictly junk food, would it make a difference vs a nutritional diet?
If I eat junk food, or cheat, and eat -500 below maintenance, should I feel guilty. I guess that's why I am asking this. If I have an off day, and eat strictly junk food, but don't hit my daily intake of calories, is that acceptable?

Calorie deficit - Does it matter on the foods?

Im assuming you want to lose body fat, not just weight. But yes, you would lose body fat at a calorie deficit. Though if you only eat, or the majority, of crap food you won't exactly be healthy.My Workout Log:
