What does 3-6 points look like?

200 cals

Did you know that a 200-calorie snack could range from 3-6 points depending on the fiber and fat content? I recently stumbled upon wisegeek.com where they have posted pictures of what 200 calories looks like. It’s fascinating to see the difference in volume. They start with “heaviest” 200 calories (1425 grams of celery) to the “lightest” (23 grams of oil) I’ve always said I liked to eat so I’m looking for foods that give me the biggest bang for the buck, if you know what I mean. The more fiber and less fat the better for shear amount and this site gives you an interesting look at that.

As for today, I did much better then yesterday. I still ate out for lunch but at least I got my workout in. I’m proud of myself. I did not really want to do it but I forced myself to get started. Then afterwards I felt great and still do

Here’s my tracker today. I’m not hungry but I may have a snack later. I have soy crisps in the cupboard that are calling my name.

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    I have been reading through the archives, and discovered this. I LOVE the way you did this tracker. Do you still do it? Would love it if you did. Thanks in advance.

    Love this article by the way, sadly I could not view the whole thing as it is no longer there.

    I found your new tracker and really like this old outline better, was it too difficult to do?

    Would love more posts on how to get more bang for your buck so to speak as I feel the same way.
