In Brief
Do you REALLY know what 200 calories look like?

We all like to eat. At least, everyone that I know likes to eat. And, of course, what we eat has a dramatic impact on our body. Although diet will vary from person to person, for the most part (according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture), the average adult needs about 2000 to 2500 calories per day. With this in mind, some foods have significantly more calories than others. So, what does the difference actually look like?

The photographs below reveal what 200 calories of particular foods look like. When you consider that an entire plate of broccoli contains the same number of calories as a small spoonful of peanut butter, you might think twice the next time you decide what to eat…or maybe not.
