Celery StickSomething that has fascinated me for quite a while is how the number of calories in an item is in no way related to the size of the object. It is all too easy to pick up a sweet thinking “oh! that’s only small so it won’t have that many calories in it” when in fact it is packed with them.

Now the wiseGEEK blog has shown just what 200 calories actually gets you for about 50 common food items, including celery, donuts, eggs and Werther’s Originals.

It is a great reminder of just how much and how little you get of some common items and is really useful for reminding the dieter that size is important and thinking that by having something small it won’t have an effect. These pictures show that it certainly could.
