What Does 300 Calories Look Like?

I've showed you what 200 calories looks like, and I've showed you how you can burn 200 calories, but check out this video. It shows what 300 calorie meals look like. If you're watching your calories, it's great to see visuals, since 300 calories can be a lot or a small amount of food. I'm in no way saying that your meals should only be 300 calories, but it's a great starting point. You can always add 100 to 200 calories with your beverage, condiments, extra snacks, fruit, and dessert.

I wish they would have shown 300 calories worth of bad choices....like 300 calories worth of a real burger and fries compared to 300 calories of veggie burger and sweet potato. It's not how many calories you eat, it's how those calories fill you up and get you to the next meal! People think they have to starve to eat right, but really you end up eating more.

check the veggie burger calories before you buy them. they can vary from 100 to close to 300 calories. And of course that doesnt factor in the bun and the potato. The higher end being about the same as a beef burger. Its definitely not a given as a healthy option. Lean turkey burgers are a great option. Especially if you make your own and mix in some fresh garlic, worchestershire and parsley.

This was surprisingly interesting! Glad to know a veggie burger is such a good choice. I am never sure.

I usually just focus on eating lots of fruits and veggies, lean protein, and whole grains. I don't really count calories, but I work out almost every day and I don't have any problems. I can see this being very useful for people who aren't sure how large a 300-calorie portion of a certain food is though.

urgh, just eat healthy and exercise. If you focus too much on counting calories it starts to get complicated. And hey if you had once to many fries dont panick! Just spend an extra 15 on the treadmill. lol!
