Question How Many Calories Would You Guess?

Hi chicks!!!
I found this web site that is asking you to guess how many calories in 2 different foods.

# 1 Banana Muffin and
# 2 bowl of homemade pasta with a light garlic and basil sauce
(they have the pics so you can have an idea)

Unfortunately it doesn’t tell you the size of the portions... so it is really a difficult guess.
My answer was:
Quote:
“I would guess the muffin is around 290/310 cal and the pasta around 420/450 cal”
It was very interesting reading through the answers. People have really different estimates.


Here is the link in case you want to check it out:

Interesting- I guessed the muffin too low and the pasta too high lol! But neither were off by more than 100 calories.
