What Does 200 Calories Look Like in Various Types of Food

How many of us know what does 200 calories look like in various types of food? Nutrition-aware people are always busy with how many calories does their meal, snack, or drink carry in order to maintain an equally opposite burning activity. Well, information website wiseGEEK sought to answer this question. The result was a fascinating article that compares over 71 foods!

The images below are sorted from low to high calorie density (a way of measuring the weight associated with a specified amount of a particular food). Keep in mind this shows Calories only, of which the average adult needs to consume about 2000-2500 daily. Important factors like nutritional value are also not addressed in this project. All pictures were taken with the same camera on a plate that was 10.25″ (26 cm) in diameter and a bowl that was 6.25″ (16 cm) in diameter.
