    Zero calories, unless you eat it.

    The sandwich will still contain calories if you don't eat it ..

    The existentialist sandwich....

    It depends on what and how much you put on it. I make my husband a sandwich every morning. It has usually around 350 calories in it. It has rye bread, pastrami, swiss cheese and brown mustard. I figured the calories by putting the bread on the scale and weigh each ingredient as I add it.

    Measure what you put into it. Add that up. Make yourself a recipe (on your food diary page). Log.

    Ta da!

    Cheese sandwich. Let's say 200 calories.

    Surely you mean 320 (and that's assuming it's low fat cheese).

    Agreed!! 200 is a vast underestimate for 2 slices of white bread and processed cheese.

    Actually, the wrapped cheese I use is 60 calories a slice, and I use bread that is 70 calories for 2 slices, so not withstanding the white/sourdough-looking bread in that pic, I could do a cheese sandwich (with 2 slices of cheese even!) for 190 calories.

    Sourdough is surprisingly low on the calorie scale, though. I had a sandwich at Panera that was made with a white sourdough-type bread and it was the lowest calorie option on the menu BY FAR. So maybe it is possible...

    I was just commenting on the picture. Big slices like that are typically 110-120 calories each. And 2% American cheese is like 50 calories a slice.
