Much of it depends on physical activity, size and metabolic rate. Say, for example, the calorie intake of an athlete varies drastically from that of a normal person. When it comes to excessive calorie intake you are more likely to suffer from health problems like gallstones, fatigue, a severe gain in weight and heart problems etc. This is an outcome of the consumption of empty calories. Calories in themselves are not bad, the problem starts when you quit healthy eating habits. The foods that are of no nutritive value like sugary sodas, candies, potato chips etc (foods with high fat and sugar content) are the sources of empty calories.
