If you try to stay in shape but can’t really control your sweet teeth, the study conducted by website Wisegeek might help you to make decision. The study chose 71 common edibles to find out how their 200 calories worth looks like. They proportioned things like peanut butter, canned beans, fruits, veggies, and even soda into 200 calorie quantities and photographed the results. It is quite surprising to see it in plate, especially when you know 385 grams apple and 34 grams Peanut Butter has the same amount of calories. You can check the whole study result on Wisegeek’s page. It is definitely a visual way allows people to size up a food in a way they have never done it before.
