Here's What 2,000 Calories Looks Like

Hillary Dixler Canavan is Eater's restaurant editor and the author of the publication's debut book, Eater: 100 Essential Restaurant Recipes From the Authority on Where to Eat and Why It Matters (Abrams, September 2023). Her work focuses on dining trends and the people changing the industry — and scouting the next hot restaurant you need to try on Eater's annual Best New Restaurant list.

Here's a fun video from BuzzFeed that shows what 2,000 calories worth of different foods look like. Inspired by a post from wiseGEEK which showed pictures of foods in 200 calorie portions, BuzzFeed's Andrew Gaulthier measured out 2,000 calories worth of foods like M&Ms, Big Macs, french fries, carrots, cobb salads, and avocados. While you might have guessed how few Cinnabons equal a 2,000 calorie serving, you might be pleasantly surprised by how many pieces of bacon it takes to hit your daily caloric allowance.
