I read this in other replies as well and don't quite agree. I do agree that if you're eating excessive amounts, it doesn't matter WHAT it is, you will gain weight. But on the other hand you're much more prone to binge eat on Cheetos and ding dongs than carrots and broccoli. Processed junk packs high calories into small packages, so you can eat way more calories of junk than you can with fruit and veg. Whole foods fill you up much faster, and keep you full longer.
