A sandwich with sausage, a sausage with ketchup, a couple of dumplings, three sweets - it seems that this does not harm your form. But it only seems. Now you’ll find out how many calories actually contain foods that we all eat almost every day.
Our food consists of proteins, fats, carbohydrates and other components, while calories are the ephemeral amount of energy that appears during food processing . It is not worthwhile to completely trust the data on the number of calories indicated by the manufacturers on the packages, because each person processes various foods differently, and our digestion does not always completely break down the products.
However, you need to count calories in everyday food: this helps control your appetite and does not overeat, which means that you do not gain excess weight.

First , which will be discussed - a sandwich with doctor's sausage (30 grams) and white bread (40 grams). It will have 173 kilocalories . But such a sandwich is rarely considered a full-fledged meal, so they add cheese (20 grams of edam to increase the calorie content to 239) and butter (5 grams of butter - and your sandwich "weighs" 277 kilocalories).
Too much for one small snack, isn't it? Another question is that we, as a rule, are not limited to one sandwich, and if we have a bite to drink while drinking tea, then two or three.
Fragrant, tasty and juicy dumplings seem harmless only at first glance. In fact, one serving of dumplings (300 grams) with pork and beef contains 798 kilocalories . Seven hundred. Ninety.
Eight. This is half the daily food intake for most girls! If your dumplings with chicken , in the same portion there will be slightly less kilocalories - 522 . A portion of fried potato contains approximately the same amount: in 300 grams - 549 kilocalories .
Now let's talk about sausages . One pork sausage weighing 55 grams contains 188 calories , beef - 124, chicken - 142.
Eat two pork , you get 376 calories . Etc. Add ketchup (20 grams) or mayonnaise (20 grams, fat content 69%) to them and increase the energy volume by another 19 and 124 kilocalories, respectively. Well, who then says that sausages are harmless food?
A standard portion of french fries contains about 300-350 calories . The sauce also gives an additional 50-80 calories.
With chips the same story. One serving (70 grams) of potato chips contains about 400 kilocalories , corn - 350.
Eating one nuggets , you get 45 kilocalories . It would seem that not so much. But six pieces will give you 270 kilocalories.
Add the sauce to them - and increase the calorie content to 340-350 kilocalories. In this case, you are unlikely to be well-fed and satisfied for a long time.

And now for the sweet . Eating all day a bar of dark chocolate weighing 100 grams, you are loaded with extra 510 kilocalories .
With a pair of wafers with fatty filling (15 grams each) that you can discreetly eat with a cup of tea, you get about 161 kilocalories , with three marshmallows in chocolate (weighing 45 grams) - 168 kilocalories , ten lemon wedges - 163 kilocalories .
The love of sweet tea or coffee is not harmless either. With each serving of such a drink (if it contains two tablespoons of sugar, that is 15-20 grams), you give the body an additional 79 kilocalories . By the way, you can drink three cups and five a day.
