This Is What 200 Calories Of Food Really Looks Like…

Everyone has heard about calories, but it’s often hard for any of us to really picture them in our minds. They make their way into the human body and then settle quite shamelessly on our waists or hips, and we don’t even suspect a thing. The guys over at WiseGEEK conducted an experiment and found out what 200 calories looks like using different kinds of food many of us consume every day.

Modern nutritionists don’t say you should avoid eating sweets or drinking coke entirely, but they do advise you not to exceed the maximum amount of calories which is healthy for your body to consume — that’s around 2000-2500 a day for an adult. It’s up to you to decide what to eat. We have made our choice! Have you?
