We talk a lot about calories. But it's better when we can see the size of the trouble. Video shows foods that add up to 2,000 calories - recommended limit for daily intake. Seeing how much each portion represents is educational.
Learning to serve yourself is a fundamental part of healthy eating. The word is: balance. When we can “see” the calories in each food, we understand how much we can use it. The amounts of the portions scare, since to reach 10% of the mark you can eat half a kilo of broccoli, or just a spoonful of candy. Since no one can stop at a spoon, you can imagine - and see - where choices lead us.
The recommendation to eat 2,000 calories is from the FDA (American agency that oversees and guides the population's diet). It may vary from person to person according to age, gender, weight and lifestyle, but it represents an average worldwide.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Sometimes this amount in calories. Watching the video below, you will understand why, what we like best, we can only eat with our eyes.
