A Close Look At 2000 Calories

2000 Calories

The average American eats approximately 2000 calories per day.  On average men eat 2640 calories per day and women eat 1785 per day. This can vary depending on daily physical activity, occupation, where they live, and other outside factors. But what does 2000 calories really look like when it’s compared between junk food and whole, natural foods. The numbers may surprise you. Convenience of sweet treats ends up costing you more than you think in the long run. Here is a little something to think about:

Some Surprising And Not So Surprising 2000 Calorie Contents

1 lb Oreos – 2200 calories

1 lb strawberry licorice – 1536 calories

1 lb potato chips – 2400 calories

1 lb French fries – 1440 calories

1 lb Swiss cheese – 1724 calories

 

Now that you have an idea about how many calories are in some of the regular food items that you may eat, here are some of the calories found in some whole, natural foods that you may also eat:

2000 Calories In Healthy Food

1 lb 2% cottage cheese

2 lbs cantaloupe

1 lb apples

1 lb tofu

1 lb kale

2 lbs celery

1 lb lettuce

1 lb carrots

1 lb papaya

1 lb onion

2 lbs cucumber

*** Every one of these items added up together equals only 2225 calories!!!!!

 

So when comparing the two lists you can easily see that whole, natural foods tend to have a much lower calorie content than pre-packaged, processed foods. If your ultimate goal is to lose weight, we recommend pairing any of the Vital Mend weight loss products such as the Vital+ Diet Drops, Green Coffee, Garcinia Cambogia, African Mango, or Raspberry Ketones, with a diet rich in whole, natural foods for optimal results. You’ll be able to eat more food, weigh less, and still be satisfied. Next time you go for a quick snack, think of the calorie content between a couple of cookies and an apple. Go for the apple with an 8oz glass of water! Do you consume more than 2000 calories per day? It may be time to change those habits.
