I agree with Squatter. It depends on what you are using the calories for. The 150 calories from an 8 oz serving of Dr. Pepper is vastly different than the 150 calories from a piece of fish. The Dr. Pepper is void of nutritional value while the fish gives you far more for the caloric value. I usually hear the "calorie is a calorie" argument from people who want to rationalize their poor food choices. If I had to choose between 2000 calories of Snickers and 2000 calories of meats and veggies, I will choose the latter. I will feel fuller and I won't be puking or worse from all the sugar in the Snickers.

Just my 2 cents.
