An extra 200 calories a day is enough to put 20 lbs of fat on a person over the course of a year. The good news, of course, is that 200 fewer calories a day is enough to take 20 lbs of fat off of a person over a year.
What is really cool about that idea is just how insignificant an amount of food 200 calories is. A small sacrifice can put you back in shape without you even noticing it.
This site shows pictures of 200 calorie portions of various foods.
Like me, I think you will amazed at how damaging innocent looking portions of some of your favorite quick snacks are.
Be sure to click on each picture to see the portion of food in proportion to a dinner plate.
