calories from "junk" food or the same as calories from "clean" foods so why would your energy levels, stamina or anything else be negativly effected?
Eating different types of food at certain times i.e. after a hard training session, can have effects on energy levels and performance. Eating a plate of pasta (or complex carb source) after a workout is a great way to put yourself to sleep for example.
All food is the same really, just different ratios of what they contain, good or bad.
