300 Calorie Food Picture Gallery

Why 300 Calorie? Originally the idea was to count how many calorie I spend working for two hours on the PC (between the obligatory breaks I make) and bicycling on a stationary bike for half an hour (my favorite indoor sports activity). With the help of this tool I found out that both activities require approximately 300 Calorie.

But what do I have to eat to get these Calorie? Using another tool, I calculated weights of the food I usually eat so that they equal 300 Calorie. It turned out that 300 Calorie is more than 2 pounds of watermelon or just 2 ounces of milk chocolate. Eventually, I decided to make photographs of what these 300 Calorie look like in different foods.

The process of making pictures took several weeks, and only after I made about half of the pictures, I found out that similar idea has already been realized. But still, I decided to continue, because the foods I was photographing were not the same as in the other projects.

And to help you estimate the portion size, I added some well known items to each picture. Also, I included approximate price of each portion based on the price of the product taken from SafeWay.com
