Heads up: Top comment and controversy

What does 200 calories look like in takeaway food?

It's lunchtime, you're hungry, but you don't want to loosen the belt buckle. Where should you go?

Wise Geek compiled a collection of pictures to show exactly how much of various snacks you can eat to make up 200 calories.

You'd have to eat a lot of celery to make up the 200 - 1425 grams to be precise. Two large red onions, an avocado or a plate full of broccoli would also get you there.

Unsurprisingly, you can eat much more fruit or veg than chocolate for the same amount of calories.

A mere eight Hershey Kisses, half a Snickers bar or 17 gummy bears all account for 200 kcal.

We've calculated how much of other popular takeaway foods you can eat for 200 calories, take a look:

  • 80% of a small McDonalds hamburger/apple pie
     
  • Just over half of a Cookies & Kreme doughnut from Krispy Kreme
     
  • Just under three small hot wings from KFC 
     
  • 3.75 inches of a BLT 6 inch sub from Subway
     
  • Nearly of a fifth of Chicken Katsu Curry from Wagamama
     
  • Quarter Peri Peri chicken from Nando's
     
  • Just under one slice of Medium Pan Texan BBQ pizza from Pizza Hut
     
  • Just under half of a Steak Bake from Greggs
     
  • Just over one scoop of Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough ice cream from Baskin Robbins
     
  • Nearly a third of a Whopper from Burger King 
     

Let's not forget about the fat and salt content though, folks...
