Knowing What Calories Look Like

I’ve always been interested in seeing what a portion size is based on calories. After a quick google search, I came up with a great blog post that is certainly worth sharing.

Wise Geek posted this great article entitled: What Does 200 Calories Look Like?

While this can be somewhat misleading in that this only focuses on calories and a basic understanding on what that looks like on a plate, it does not include nutritional information such as protein, carbs or fats. Now…with that said, it still is a very interesting article and well worth the look. If you want to sit down and eat while you’re sitting on your couch, you can grab a large plate of apples or carrots. Or you can grab a small handful of M&Ms. They have the same calories (obviously less nutrition with the chocolate) but which would be more filling?
