Lets say you have 2 people who are roughly the same. Same health, age, job, hobbies etc.
Lets say 1 person goes on a diet that involves 200 calories a day but 100% of all recommended vitamins and minerals. The other person goes on a diet of 2000 calories a day but is getting 25% of recommended vitamins and minerals.
Who will begin to suffer first? Over the long term, who will suffer more?
Does the body need raw calories or vitamins/minerals more to continue in a day to day manner?
