The caloric intake argument is still bs. If you drink a litter of gasoline, or about 8000kcal, putting aside its toxicity, you won't grow fat because of it. Eat 2000kcal worth of lettuce, and you won't be able to extract that much energy out of it as well because your body cannot break down the cellulose. On the opposite side, eat 2000kcal worth of pure glucose in one batch, and your body (especially your pancreas) will completely freak out.
