Hi Nedo! I kind of figured you weren't advocating junk food, but there are some who only count calories and their nutrition is seriously lacking. Speaking for myself only, my concern is that even if I were inactive (which I would hate), the micronutrients, fiber, and antioxidants in carbs such as fruit and veg are required for optimum functioning in most humans--active or not. I would, though, be very strict with starchy carbs if I was inactive. Usually I try to watch starchy carbs anyways and reserve them for high energy requirements.
