# What 200 Calories of Various Foods Looks Like

We all know some foods have a much higher Calorie content than others, but how many of us know what that difference actually looks like? Information website wiseGEEK sought to answer this question way back on January 3, 2007. 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. Be sure to check out the full post on wiseGEEK.com to see all 71 foods compared!
