For those on the verge of abandoning New Year's diets, there may be hope yet.The popular research website WiseGEEK photographed what we've all wondered: 200 calories worth of carrots equals how many gummy bears?As it turns out, you don't have to settle for a diet of only fruits and vegetables if you're calorie-counting. The portion sizes they photographed are relative to one another and should provide some comfort to would-be dieters who can't live without potato chips or candy.The foods at the top of the list, like celery, have the lowest calorie density: they provide the least amount of calories per each gram or ounce consumed. The typical culprits of weight gain have a high calorie density.  The Department of Agriculture cites that the average adult requires between 2000 and 2500 daily calories. Extra calories do plague Americans, as nearly two out of three adults is overweight or obese.
