Athletes who need high caloric foods are able to do so just fine without stuffing their bodies with junk food that’s low in nutrition (source: anecdotal from my personal experiences and all my friends and acquaintances who are ultra runners, Ironman athletes, kayakers, etc etc.)

Second, that’s such a small portion of the population that it’s no reason not to tax food that is objectively mediocre for a person.
