Here’s a great video by ASAP Science to show you what 200 calories looks like.
It’s also a pretty good primer on the different Calorie-Densities of the foods you’re probably eating.
And while you’re thinking about them, remember: Processed, Take-out, and Restaurant foods will likely have a lot of extra calories you don’t really need.
One example is the difference between Vermont Bread Whole Wheat & -well, almost everyone else’s; in this case, Arnold’s.
70 vs. 110. -For those of you without a calculator handy, that’s 57% More Calories per slice (you probably won’t even taste), times 2, per sandwich;
-Just in bread alone.
For more in-depth research, you could always head over to Calorie King and use the Search tool to pull up your favorite foods and see how much they have.
If you figure out how many calories you’re supposed to get every day (like over here) & then estimate that in # of your favorite foods, like Big Macs, the smallness of the portion sizes just might scare you!
After you’re done being freaked out, you could always find a few non-silly ways to up your burn-rate over at WebMD’s Exercise Calorie Calculator
