A Calorie Isn't A Calorie

One simple example is enough to prove this theory :

Let's see Almonds vs. Coca Cola 

Even if the calories are higher in the 22 pieces of Almonds than in the Coca Cola:

The Coca Cola will give a sugar rush and the liver will have no choice but turn the extra sugar into 

fat. The Almonds will keep your sugar level low,  and the natural fats of the almonds help your body 

absorb vitamins, make hormones, and/or do more valuable chemical reactions for a healthier state, 

thus just a low percentage get stored. Don't calculate your intakes depending on the fake calories, 

because a calorie isn't a calorie.
