Calorific shows you exactly what 200 calories look like with beautiful photography.


“A giant truth bomb that pours its radioactive reality down on all the food lies we tell ourselves” - The Atlantic

“Instead of tracking your daily calorie intake, which can be more than tedious, the Calorific app simply shows you what 200 calories worth of food looks like along with the weight of the portion.” - Sydney Morning Herald


Why 200 calories? Because it's a nice portion size and makes it easy to recognise how many calories you are eating without needing to check the labels.

You’ve probably been told at some point how many calories you need to consume each day. But the concept of a calorie can be hard to grasp and understanding what foods contain how many calories can be even more difficult.

So what does 200 calories of any given food or drink actually look like? Well it turns out it's a whole lot of spinach but only half a spoon of peanut butter!

Each food has been meticulously researched, weighed and photographed in high definition.

I like it!


This is very helpful for visual learners! I notice many European foods are listed; we could use more common American options, too. I appreciate being able to visually compare volumes of different foods with the same caloric value. This is a useful app for retraining my estimations of what I'm eating!

Little usefulness


First off, the calorie content is extremely inaccurate. For example, it says two and a bit more potato is 200 kcal, whereas in fact 1 common potato is about 110 kcal.
There are also very little food varieties.
The plate size is unidentified.
Even to the same food, different variation could vary a lot in terms of their energy.

I so regretted paying money for this app. I mean I like the fact that you make it very vivid and visualized, but there are so many errors and potential improvement that could've been made.

Has potential


If the calculation is accurate then this is a GREAT way to figure out how much you are eating. Need more verity though so please add more!
