What Does 200 Calories Look Like?

What does 200 Calories Look Like? 



Melissa's Produce offers great low calorie, great tasting snacks! Sweet Young Coconuts & Mangoes are only 100 calories per serving!

Below are photos showing what a serving of 200 calories looks like. After looking at the first batch of photos, compare it to the 2nd batch of photos that have the same 200 calories per serving. It really puts it into perspective how many calories are in such a little amount of certain foods. When you are really hungry for a light snack, which would you rather have? A full plate of carrots, apples or broccoli, or a couple slices of cheese, or a spoonful of peanut butter? After seeing these photos, it really makes you think.  


These servings below are all 200 Calories:

 "Some foods have significantly more Calories than others but what does the difference actually look like. Each of the photographs below represents 200 Calories of the particular type of food; the images are sorted from low to high calorie density. 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. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the average adult needs to consume about 2000 - 2500 Calories to maintain their weight. In other words, you have a fixed amount of Calories to "spend" each day; based on the following pictures, which would you eat?" - WiseGeek
