    All full of carbs! All high carbohydrate food that I don't ever eat! My 300 calories looks very different from THAT! - 8/15/2016 7:07:16 PM
  • WOW! Impressive comparison!!! - 8/15/2016 2:30:53 PM
  • Great article! As they say, seeing is believing and a picture is worth a thousand words. Please give us more like this! - 8/15/2016 10:17:20 AM
  • Wow eye opener! Especially the 1/3 of a SLICE of pizza being 300 calories. How many slices do we normally eat?? - 8/15/2016 8:15:30 AM
  • Wow if all places let you see the nutrition facts when you order . We would be sharing meals or taking half home or eating at home more. - 7/14/2016 4:11:51 PM
  • I would like to see more examples like these. This was a good artical very much and eye opener. - 4/19/2016 10:49:48 PM

    This really does help me. When I try to eyeball a portion, it still turns out way more than I should be eating at one sitting. The visuals gave me a better way to measure my food intake. - 2/29/2016 8:01:37 AM
  • These visuals should be the final straw in people's decision to switch to an obviously healthier diet. Fast food from any diner even Raw food one's are always not as healthy than what would be made at home. Also changes in home cooking should be done too like turkey bacon, turkey ground meat 2-1% milk, Almond milk 3 grams of sugar to finally unsweetened etc

    In pretty short order you'll wonder how you ever ate the way you did before, and will be so grateful you are not diabetic from your previous horrible diet. The appreciation for food, taste will be so much better once you are aware of how unhealthy your previous unfulfilling diet was compared to your current lifelong lifestyle change for the unbelievably much better one you now consume. - 2/27/2016 12:39:22 PM
  • WOW! ! ! That sure does open my eyes. I can make better choices. - 2/27/2016 8:21:43 AM

    A good reminder to eat at how. While you can find small ones, keep in mind most whole grain bagels from bagel shops, Panera, etc. are 300 calories are more by themselves.... - 2/26/2016 9:12:24 PM
  • I love this article! It really captures what I have seen during my first week. It also motivates me to cook rather than eat out! - 2/26/2016 3:00:02 PM
  • The visualization is good but the examples are misleading. Choosing more comparable meals at the restaurant doesn't give you quite as large a mismatch. For example, the only way to get that calorie count on the Panera example is to count a bowl (rather than a cup) of soup and a whole sandwich. A pick-two with tomato soup and the Sierra turkey sandwich is only 570 calories. It is possible to eat out and stay within your calorie/carb/fat/etc targets. - 2/26/2016 12:07:54 PM

    Awesome visual!!! - 2/26/2016 11:42:14 AM
  • Looks great. But I am 100% sure there is a ton of sodium in the restaurant food vs what we make at home - 2/26/2016 11:01:25 AM
  • You guys ate all that food, right? It didn't go to waste, I hope... - 2/26/2016 4:47:25 AM
