"In the book, Price claimed that various diseases endemic to Western cultures of the 1920s and 1930s – from dental caries to tuberculosis – were rarely present in non-Western cultures. He argued that as non-Western groups abandoned indigenous diets and adopted Western patterns of living, they showed increases in typical Western diseases. He concluded that Western methods of commercially preparing and storing foods stripped away vitamins and minerals necessary to prevent these diseases."
It's not how much or how little you eat...it's how well you eat.Well, eating a surplus of calories, especially if you have a background of undereating, will indicate to your cells that they are living in times of abundance. Since there is food available whenever you need it, they will realize there is no need to store a lot of those calories as fat, so you will actually have a increased metabolism, which will cause your cells to be constantly bathing in healing CO2 and ATP. Keeping degenerative diseases and infectious diseases at bay will be much more easily done and your stress hormones will be down. Calories are really important. If you don't ingest enough calories, your cells are gonna get them from some part of your body. Some of those calories will come from your fat tissue, but some will come from muscles and other organs, which means degeneration.
With that said, ingesting calories without enough micronutrients will make you waste calories, since you can't carry out oxidative metabolism correctly without things like thiamin and niacinamide and magnesium. That means you are going to increase your lactate levels, since the pyruvate dehydrogenase enzyme doesn't act without nutrientes and the pyruvate will be turned into lactate. Acidosis is a problem seen in diabetics due to lactate and probably ketones as well. Also, the electrons from your food won't be directed to the electron transport chain, which means oxidative stress. In addition, ingesting protein without vitamin B6 will increase your homocysteine levels, increasing inflammation in the body. Without potassium , your insulin levels are going to increase, since potassium is the main thing with insulin-like action in the blood.
So, in the end, one thing isn't more important than the other. You actually can't have just one of these things and be fine. If you only ingest calories, you will be sick; if you only ingest micronutrients, you will be sick. Calories need nutrients to be properly utilized and micronutrients won't work without calories. For example, potasium without carbohydrate causes hypoglycemia.
It's not how much or how little you eat...it's how well you eat.

Calories do matter, but it's not as simple as calories in calories out.
You certainly need micronutrients, but requirements vary widely depending on an individual's circumstances.
