Half an avocado? Two-thirds of a burger (but no bun)? Warning: the truth of the Calorific app might make you weep

We all know that tucking into a salad is more advisable than eating a whole cake in one sitting, right? But do you really know what 200 calories can get you?

 

Say hello to Calorific. The people behind the new iPhone and iPad app have measured and photographed what 200 calories really looks like and, we’re sorry to tell you, it is less than one doughnut. Cue sobbing.


For those of you who can stomach the truth, you can sort by name, weight or food type and compare how much of each you can get.


From a spoonful of peanut butter to a slice of apple pie, this truth bomb of an app takes portion control to a whole new level – no labels required.

 

So, what does 200 calories look like?
