Since I don’t get enough exercise lately, I feel thick around my waist (LOL).
And I try to be extra careful about calorie when I eat something.
Finding this article in another blog made me realize how important to read calorie information on food package.
Look at the picture.
This is “melon bread” filled with chocolate cream.
Melon dread is called “melon pan” in Japan and has been popular bread since old times.
Although it’s called melon, it doesn’t contain melon but the color and the shape are similar to melon.
Compare to the 30 cm ruler by the bread, you can tell it is a huge bread (at least in Japan it is.)
Now, look at the nutrition fact. Surprisingly, it has 1403 kcal 😯
Since the intake calorie of a woman who is her thirties and don’t do much exercise is 1500 kcal per day, the combination of this bread and milk will be over calorie!
It is scary bread, isn’t it?
Nowadays, almost everything including deli, meat, sashimi and drink at supermarket has calorie information.
How about in your country?
But high calorie food tastes good! I am sure this melon bread is good but I have no courage to eat (^_^)

> overoften: yes, I agree with you ^_^
O.O oh my…when I read the amount of calories, and then they say nuts have too many calories! >.< Yes everything is labeled here with amount of calories and all, but I usually feel safe (even though I shouldn't) when I see something marked as light/extra-light (though the taste is usually not too good) so I don't bother to look at calories..but my friends are obsessed with counting calories!
"But high calorie food tastes good!" I agree with you so much!! Like you can't compare the taste of extra-light mayo or yogurt and normal mayo or yogurt…at least though low-calorie ice-cream or soya-based (I think its soya, I'm not sure) ice-cream tastes good XD
> Natsume1990: Yes, most of the low-calorie foods are not good as the original ones. And sometimes I wonder if they are healthy because of all those artificial substance.
where can I find that? in family mart?
havent seen 30 cm melon bread around before !
> wampy: It seems that this bread have selling only Kansai area’s (Osaka, Kyoto, etc) supermarket.
Yeah :< In fact, our biology lecturer used to tell us that its better if one eats half something which is high-calorie, but one would know WHAT it is made out of, then to eat the light one and not knowing why it is light :/ or what they decreased and added artificially to make it light, not understanding the chemicals on the labels one wouldn't understand if they are safe or not :/
