    Default Caloric deficit wins a round.

    The basic principle of weight loss: Consume fewer calories than you burn.

    http://www.cnn.com/2010/HEALTH/11/08...sor/index.html

    My question is: Do the health advantages of being in "ideal" weight range outweigh the disadvantages of eating convinience store food? Remember he supplemented his diet with a multi-vitamin.

    He addresses that concern in the article. How does it effect the risk of cancer, etc. there is still a difference in the quality of calories, which he didn't take into consideration. He was simply showing that fewer calories (of any type)will produce weight loss.

    Is a person who is the ideal weight but eats mostly junk really any healthier than an overweight person who eats mostly healthy stuff? I don't think so.

    I am not so sure myself. Risks of junk food? (assuming you take a multi vitamin) Too much sugar & salt, saturated fat? vs. risks of overweight/obesity: Heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, cancer, gallbladder disease and gallstones, osteoarthritis, gout.
