Research has shown that one trick to cutting back on calories is found in portion control. It’s a wise practice to divide your food before you begin to eat in order to not get carried away and overeat. Beth Galton has taken that simple concept and created an entire series of gorgeously organized photographs that celebrate the very core of common foods.

These colorful cross-sections reveal what your food is really made of. My personal favorite is the bright red jelly found in three powdered donuts paired with half a coffee. It’s the breakfast I gave up when I decided to eat more healthfully. But I do miss it. Maybe it’s an ok breakfast if I only eat half?
