What 2,000 Calories Looks Like

The FDA recommends that we eat a balanced diet of 2,000 calories a day. Some days we do a better job passing on the pizza and reaching for a salad, and some days it’s digging into a full pint of ice cream sort of day. Here’s what 2,000 calories of various food items look like.

What 2,000 Calories Looks Like

50 Comments

  1. The amount of calories you should eat depends entirely on your weight, body composition, age and so on. Don’t know why you have it as a set number here.

  2. What kind of BS video is this? Unhealthy foods are unhealthy whether you eat 1000 calories of it or 100 calories of it.

  3. I genuinely started dying laughing out loud when the whopper popped up I got tears in my eyes also it’s 3 am 😭

  4. I feel like every obese person should be forced to watch this video multiple times, and maybe even an extended video with additional food choices so they dont say "well it didnt say anything about a BIG MAC, only a whopper."

  5. Another attempt at disguising propaganda as education. Nice try United Carrot Salesmen of America, but you’ve not pulled the wool over my eyes.

  6. “Look at all these healthy options that we just proved you can eat a lot more of because of how many calories they are!”
    * only eats the whopper *

  7. People’s understanding of calories and nutrition in this comment section is aids. Yes a large apple and chocolate treat might be similar calories, but one is nutrional and will help satiate you, and the others gonna have you reaching for another before you even finish chewing it.

  8. that whopper looks like the old crabby patty spongebob found under the kitchen floor in the old episodes

  9. Anybody wanna lose weight but couldn’t cause your family literally feeds you high calorie foods?

  10. seeing these pictures reminds me of chubbyemu scenario where you’ll probably end up in emergency room unconscious 🤦🏻

  11. 2000 calories is low for most men. To maintain weight weight most wen will want to eat 2300-2600 calories, if youre a little bit active (which most people are). Most women should eat 1600-1900 if theyre a little bit active.. If youre very active you should eat more. An hour of walking burns 300-500 calories depending on height and weight.

  12. Am i the only one who adds extra calories to food on labels because i don’t trust the company 😵

  13. Just goes to show calories matter. Want to lose weight? Eat at a calorie deficit and lift weights. Don’t know what deficit is right for you? Use a TDEE calculator and be honest with your inputs. Be consistent more often than not. With enough time, the weight will come off, and sticking to a deficit or maintenance will keep it off. It’s easier said than done, as anything is, but it’s not as hard as people seem to think it is.
