Wisegeek presents dozens of images of foodstuffs, apportioned to the equivalent of exactly 200 calories. Most of it is about what I expected, but some images are surprising. For example I was surprised that eggs aren’t higher in calories than they are, and conversely that Hershey’s Kisses are so high. Two entire onions, or one teaspoon of peanut butter? A big plate of kiwi fruit, or half of a cheeseburger?
I’ve never thought much about calories, but can tell that middle age will soon make it mandatory. I’ve definitely become more carb-sensitive over the past year – digesting bread-y stuff exhausts me.
