The average daily calorie requirement for an adult is around 2,000 kcal. But how much is 2,000 kcal of food?
"What 2000 Calories Looks Like" is a video that aims to help you understand this visually and intuitively. How much do you need to get 2,000 kcal from a particular food alone? Is introduced.
How many videos do I need to get 2,000 kcal in a bagel? Start with and proceed to the case of donuts. Bagels are said to be healthy food because they are not fried, but as far as you can see this video, the calories are surprisingly high. It has almost the same calories as donuts.
The video then introduces the calories of eggs and bacon. It turns out that you need 26 eggs and 50 bacon to get 2,000 kcal. If you want to get the calories you need for a day with just the standard American breakfast menu "bacon and eggs," you have to eat 13 eggs and 25 bacon. This is pretty tough, isn't it? Unless you're a pretty glutton, it's a little impossible.
Next up is the cinnamon rolls from Seattle's bakery "Cinnabon." Bread is known for its high calorie content, but the calories in cinnamon rolls here are very high, and you can get the calories you need for a day by eating just 2.27 pieces. It seems that one cinnamon roll and 22 bacon have the same calories. That said, Cinnabon's cinnamon rolls are delicious, so I just eat them. It burns a lot of calories while you're in the Cinnabon procession, so it's okay to eat! ... should be.
As you can imagine, the fast food menu was high in calories. Big Mac has 3.8 calories, reaching 2,000 kcal. On the other McDonald's menus, 42 McDonald's and 4 L-sized potatoes cost 2,000 kcal.
In fruits, the calories of bananas and avocados are introduced. According to it, 19 bananas are needed to get 2,000 kcal. I had the image that bananas are high in calories, but it doesn't seem to be that much. Avocado was surprisingly high in calories. It is said that 6.5 pieces will be 2,000 kcal.
Carrots are introduced from vegetables. Although American carrots are much smaller than Japanese ones, I was surprised at the fact that 60 carrots are still needed to reach 2,000 kcal.
In addition, the video shows that the calories in the dressed salad are higher than expected and that the calories in the pasta are also high.
