We know that humans (depending on many factors, of course) require somewhere between 2000 and 2700 calories per day to maintain. But sometimes it’s hard to know just how many calories you’re putting in your body. Volume simply isn’t a good measurement. That’s because some foods are more calorie dense than others.

So, what’s a good unit to know? How about 200 calories. What does that look like in different foods? For instance, did you know that you could eat and entire heaping plate of broccoli before you hit 200 calories, but just half a slice of pepperoni pizza?

Ok, let’s face it. We’re all just making bad choices. You know that sugary cereal looked good.

    Great video except that it is mixing the use of Calorie and KiloCalorie. Food calories are actually KiloCalories and the mixing of the use in this video puts the rest of its legitimacy into question.
