Yes we should only eat healthy food

Pro's position is that we (you, Pro, and I) should never eat unhealthy food. If you ever have a choice between eating unhealthy food and not eating, then you should not eat, according to Pro. You should wait until healthy food is available.

(I assume "unhealthy food" refers to food with significantly less nutritional value--vitamins, minerals, protein, etc.--per calorie than other foods.)

I contradict that by arguing that hunger is worse than consuming a few empty calories. If you are hungry and all you have available is processed food (e.g. a candy bar), then you should eat it. Hunger is your body's way of telling you that you need energy [1]. Denying your body the energy it needs is unhealthy. And it is sometimes worse than unhealthy. When we are low on energy, we can get grumpy, inattentive, and drowsy. That affects other people. For example, drowsy driving causes thousands of accidents per year [2].

If healthy eating is really important to you, then just eat enough empty calories to tide you over.

Reasons for voting decision: FF, so arguments to Con. Pro presented no arguments, and didn't refute any of Con's argument, which was that unhealthy food should be consumed when it's the only option next to starving. So arguments to Con. Sources were only used by Con.
