Calories : Food vs Exercise

Re - The previous question in this regard, and your answer. I though the question was excellent, as well as the answer - and I would like to take it one stage further.

Assume you have eaten 400 Units of chocolate, and done 400 units of exercise, and theoretically burned up all the calories / kilojoules.

What baddies remain ? i.e. what other negative effects on ones diet (or eating habits etc) remain after burning up the excess energy produced by the chocolate ?

Not what you were looking for? Try searching again, or ask your own question

Dear Steve
None really unless eating those 400g of chocolate makes you cheat on your diet and start a vicious cycle which leads to overeating. If you have burnt up the energy ingested then it is no longer a factor in body weight control. If you start feeling guilty about the fact that you have 'transgressed' then there could be psychological effects, but I doubt that this would apply in your case.
Best regards
