calories are a significant source of our daily nutrition and — as every food varies in its caloric value — it can be difficult to visualize the difference. wisegeek conducted a study of 71 edibles, each proportioned to a 200 calorie quantity, and photographed the results. the investigation reveals a vast range of outcomes that can be quite surprising and thought provoking about the foods we consume and how they might affect our bodies. 740 grams of mini peppers, a towering heap set on the plate, has the same caloric amount as 28 grams of butter, a miniscule chunk cut off the stick. take a look through the images below for a selection of images from the research project.
