Dieticians/nutritionists out there? Help! Calories, diet and metabolism remain a mystery of sorts.


Although I know very well the "formula" for effective and safe weight loss, and realize that eating junk food, especially in large amounts is not the thing to do, I am stumped by one particular thing that no one has been able to adequately explain. E.g., WHY does it matter WHEN you eat the "too much junk?" Suppose, for an extreme example, you eat 8 donuts in a week. How can it possibly matter whether you pig out and eat them all at one sitting, or one a day for 8 days? That is still 8 donuts- worth of too many empty calories in the timeframe, so why is an all-at-once pig-out any worse?
