    This is brilliant! i’ve been hearing and thinking a lot about calories and what i eat recently, and this is an excellent way to inform people about what is inside their food. They should make this into a a PSA used the world over – though i’d be cautious: Casey Neistat made a video about how restaurants in new york are deceiving their customers on the caloric content of their products –

    Calories mean nothing.
    Stop obesity, stop the ‘fat is bad’-myth.
    Low Carb High Fat is the answer.

    Frank, if you noticed the amount of energy producing carbs is a much smaller portion than say carrots- that’s because you need to eat a whole lot more of other foods to get the same benefits as whole grain carbs. Notice I said whole grain. That’s the part that people dislike. High fat, low carbs lead to coronary disease. Moderate carbs, high plant consumption better…

    I didnt know I could eat an entire doughnut and gain only 200 cal! Well fitness guru’s say a balanced diet is the best. A little of everything and not excess one.

  5. Freedom

    Clearly the vegetables win this one. What a surprise!

  6. Gert

    Funny, when I go on diets I’ve always turned to carrot sticks for weight loss. Glad to know I was on the right track.

  7. jacklyn

    The gummy bear one is just sad. I eat WAY more than that.

  8. Karen

    This makes me rethink everything I eat :P
