Stephanie Garcia (http://www.howmanycaloriescounter.com) contacted us about a post she saw on IdealBite. She thought IdealBite readers would enjoy their infographic titled ‘Fast Food Items with 1000 Calories and More’.
With the dramatic increase of obesity, particularly in the industrialized world, there is great concern about the causes of this disturbing phenomenon and its attendant impact on the health and happiness of people affected by obesity.
In America, the general population spends billions yearly in an effort to prevent obesity and the related health problems. One of the results is an increase in “calorie consciousness”- or an awareness of how many calories are in the foods one eats.
Attentiveness to the amount of calories consumed is an excellent tool for controlling diet and weight. An average diet should consist of approximately 1500 to 2500 calories depending on factors such as current height, weight, age and level of physical activity.
The following is a list of foods that contain more than 1000 calories which should generally be avoided if one is trying to achieve a healthy weight.
Do you eat fast food from this list? Did you have any idea these items were soo high in calories? Share your thoughts with us!
