A Banana's Calories?


This article concerns my Caloric intake on August 19th, Wednesday 2009.

1 1/2 cups of cooked steel cut oats: 150 Calories. (1/2 cup is 50 Calories)

2 teaspoons of Margarine: 70 Calories. (1 tsp is 35 Calories)

6 cups of coffee: zero Calories. ( no Calories in a plain cup of coffee)

6 tablespoons of sugar: 300 Calories. ( 1 tbsp of sugar 50 Calories)

3 cups of cooked beans: 600 Calories. (200 Calories a cup)

6 more teaspoons of margarine: 210 Calories. (1 tsp is 35 Calories)

1 cup of peas: 150 Calories. (1 cup is 150 Calories)

Total Caloric intake for 8/19/09; 1480 Calories

I had been asked to keep and show my caloric intake records. I was told that knowing how many Calories are in a slice of bread (80), fried egg (105), etc. was important.

I get most of my information from the food's package information. I also use the information on food calories from The "T-Factor 2000 Diet" book by Martin Katahn, Ph.D. .  This next source is from United States Dept. of Agriculture- http://www.nal.usda.gov/fnic/foodcomp/search/ .

Always consult with your personal physician about your diet,dieting, and exercise. None of the information provided in any of these hub articles are to replace the advice of your physician.
