the food does make a difference, I think! (more so for some than others)

Yeah, that's something I realized over the last year -- cutting calorie intake is the most important and significant part of the equation for losing weight, regardless of how many calories I'm burning through exercise. (Not that all of my calorie-cutting was intentional -- I just didn't have any appetite for quite a while!)

Quality can't be quantified...if the food is useful for strengthening and repairing the body, those are calories that aren't used for fat. Are you at a plateau, don't need to lose any more to weight at this point? I used to be at 142, bmi below 20, now about 145-146 but i feel like I have more strength so i dont worry about it:)

Oh, I didn't realize you were originally referring to quantity vs. quality -- but I agree! Definitely better to have a full day of good protein, healthy fats, etc., rather than just refined carbs (cinnamon rolls, pizza, beer...). ;-)
