    What Does 200 Calories Look Like?

    Thought you might be interested in this, quite interesting to see what 200 cals looks like in different foods. The butter and peanut butter is tiny!

    I'm never buying peanut butter again.... once.... (a very long time ago) I was so fixated by it, that I started eating it straight from the jar as I was driving home........

    I worry for my mental health sometimes x

    The hot dogs I found surprising the amount you get for 200 cals. Used to routinely split a tin with the dog of an evening :shame:

    Oh how I miss peanut butter!! Haven't had any since starting SW because I just don't think I could cope with 1 or 2 tablespoons!! Used to happily have 2 or 3 big thick slices of toast with peanut butter and jam or nutella!! Insane when you think about it :eek:

    Must be some fatty hotdogs! I was eating some last night and they were only 34 calories per sausage! Not fancy diet ones either, just Asda ones.

    ok, who mentioned Peanut Butter? I now have to try and resist the jar that is calling my name from the back of the cupboard. I too used to eat it straight from the jar, usually whilst waiting for my three pieces of toast to finish toasting so I could have some on toast. (I have no idea why I have a weight issue:eek:)

    Interesting photographs though.

    That's a really interesting feature especially for those of us food optimising as it really brings it home how much of some things we can freely enjoy and how horrifyingly little we can have of others!!X

    Although I only tend to measure my pasta this is very interesting :D thanks for this! Now when I see my friends eating burgers I'll think of just how many calories there are and not even take a blind bit of notice :) Goodbye temptations!
