Consuming too much fat or too much of the wrong kind of fat (saturated and trans fats), going overboard on cholesterol and sodium, or just eating more calories than you need to keep your weight in a healthy range increases your risk for heart disease, diabetes, and some cancers. That sort of diet is also unlikely to do much for your performance. So you’re going to have to budget your extra calories and decide what luxuries to spend them on: more food from any food group, soft drinks, wine, beer, candy, desserts, solid fats like butter and cream cheese, or high-calorie versions of foods such as fried chicken, cheese sauce, and bacon.

By the way, it’s not surprising that people can lose weight quickly on highprotein, low-carbohydrate diets because most provide too few calories for active people.
