# What 1,000 Calories Looks Like in Different Foods

Whether you are looking to lose weight, stay fit, or simply acquire healthier eating habits, getting information about the caloric values of the foods you eat is the key to starting a healthy lifestyle. Also, keep in mind that appearances can be very deceiving. A seemingly harmless small portion of certain foods can be true calorie bombs, while others can be eaten in large amounts with pretty much no guilt.
