Is it still healthy if...

My caloric intake comes from consuming completely processed and "dirty" foods?

On the sidebar and FAQ, it says that weight loss is achieved by reducing calories, whether it's food from McDonald's or Whole Foods.

My question is, how healthy is that?

Let's say I'm a 5'9" 21 year old male. My whole life, I've only eaten grilled chicken, smoked salmon, whole wheat bread sandwiches with organic mayo, brown rice, organic beans, and organic eggs, etc, etc... but I eat 4,000 calories a day with a sedentary lifestyle.

Suddenly I want to lose weight, and I decide to track calories only. Let's say, for whatever reason, I suddenly have virtually no money, so I decide to eat food from the value menu at fast food joints.

Therefore, I change my meals to be: diet Pepsi, fried chicken sandwich, french fries, donuts, sausage biscuits, cookies, etc.

If I consume those things daily for 6 months, with my total intake equaling 1,600 calories... how healthy will I truly be? What if I continue eating those things for 2 years straight?

No fruits, no vegetables, no organic food, etc.

What if death is a big trick, like Santa Claus or the Easter Bunny, and all the 'deceased' are just waiting for us to mature enough to be told.
