@elplatt For me understanding that "a calorie is not a calorie" was the most helpful.
Some people simply go by "Calories In and Calories Out", CICO, and that does work for them, but understanding that 100 calories of cake and 100 calories of broccoli are not processed the same way by the body has been a huge thing for me, not just in terms of nutrition, but in terms of the way the body uses the food, and the hormonal effects of the food.
