Screen Shot 2014-02-09 at 8.21.34 PMThe folks over at wise geek put up an eye opening post regarding what 200 calories look like for different foods ranging from coca cola, to peanut butter, to carrots.

It’s such a great post because it visually demonstrates why you need to spend the allotted calories you have each day wisely. You see, if you are trying to lose weight there’s no getting around the fact that you need to create a calorie deficit. That means, you need to expend more energy than you consume.

However, the food that we have available to us is typically so calorie dense that one can feel deprived or as though they are starving, making it quite difficult to adhere to their caloric deficit.

The pictures from Wisegeek puts it all into perspective. When you see that you can have a full plate of broccoli OR eight hershey’s kisses for the same amount of calories, you start to understand the importance of learning how to spend your calories just as you would your money, carefully!
