200 Calories

Recommended Posts

Pretty photos of 200 calories of different kinds of food.

(Since I'm new to actually posting here, apologies if this is the wrong place to post this...)

Some other interesting things about 200 calories....they will take the average person about 20 minutes on the treadmill to burn off 200 calories. And 200 excess calories will result in roughly 1/16-th of a pound of fat. Oh, and a healthy pint of good beer is about 200 calories.

Depressing, ain't it?

Yet another reason to bring sober back in 2007. :P

But the bars are all smoke-free! I can hear them calling to me, with their undisturbed malt and hop aromas! You can actually smell your beer? Glory! </gloat>

Interesting photos. But it's all actually easier than that to keep track of. Just figure that just about any and all fats and oils (butter, peanut oil, pure bacon fat, fat at the edge or your steak, crisco, margarine, whatever) are going to run somewhere around 4,000-4,500 calories per lb. All carbs/sugars, including dry pasta, rice, pure sugar, honey, you name it, are going to run somewhere in the vicinity of 1,500 calories per pound. Water of course has no calories. Keep these three numbers in mind and you can fairly well estimate how many calories there are on that table in front of you.

Note--Cakes and cookies are made up pretty much 100% of various fats and sugar/carbs. You do the math.

One can only imagine how many strips of chicken-fried bacon would be needed to get up to 200 calories.
