I keep seeing this term, so I wonder...empty as opposed to what?

Do empty calories go straight to fat? I would think empty calories would be burned up quite quickly since there is no complexity to them...

WHat's the deal with this?

Relatively not nutritious.

For example, calories from:

white bread
juice with little actual fruit juice and lots of sugar

Anything ingested which does not positively contribute to the overall health of your body.
