"DJ" had this to say:

Calories for people eating a low-fat, high carb diet (which is what conventional "wisdom" still seems to perpetuate) still really matter. If you were to wrap this 700+ calories in a high carb bun, then ... all that extra energy will be stored ... on your buns ... because the carbs in those buns will release the insulin, who will run around and save that stash for later. However, without the carbs and without that insulin, the calories suddenly become FAR FAR less of an issue has the food and nutrients take different metabolic pathways ... resulting in weight loss off of far more nutrient and calorie dense foods! Even for low-carbers, calories become somewhat important as many near their goals, but for the most part ... calories aren't much of a factor. It's true. ;)
