Calories For Food And Drinks for Sims 4

Calories For Food And Drinks for Sims 4
Calories For Food And Drinks for Sims 4

Adds calories to food and drink items that don’t have any. Adds a daily caloric burn value so that sims can eat and maintain weight without cardio exercise.

Sims have a hidden weight scale and they slowly put on weight as they eat. The amount of weight they put on depends on the calorie count set on the items they eat. Some items have this value set while others don’t. Sims will gain some weight from garden salads but not from eclairs for example.

In order to make things a bit more consistent I added calorie counts to food and drink items that didn’t have any. I left the ones already set by the game as they were.

To counter-balance the increased caloric input I added a daily caloric drain of 900 sim-calories. I wanted my sims to be able to eat multiple times a day (not only when hungry), occasionally have drinks and snacks, and maintain weight without increasing my fitness skill.

All calories were assigned to fit in with the ones already in the game.
As a general guideline on what the vanilla game values are: lobster thermidor is 800 calories and experimental main dishes are 600, cake and pies are around 400, bar drinks are 200, city living dishes are between 150-250, some ice creams and hamburgers are 300, soups and lighter items are 200, healthy and light snacks are 150.

Here’s a rough breakdown of the values the mod sets:

5-10 Sim-calories
50 Sim-calories
150 Sim-calories
200 Sim-calories
300 Sim-calories
400 Sim-calories
500 Sim-calories
teas, some coffees, flavored watersSome coffees (ex soy latte), lemonade, iced tea, food samplesDrinks from the cooler, drinks made with the juice fizzer, milk, conserves, some vending machine snacksLight meals, soups, fish dishes, sushi, salads, and some grilled foodsVending machine soups, steaks, some bread, bagels, pretzels, yakisobaSome meat pies, cupcakes, ramen, croissants, doughnuts, muffins, pit bbqSome pies, vending machine meals, hot pot meals, some stews, some cakes

Also included is a Scale item to enable you to check your sim’s weight and muscle mass. Place the item and instruct a sim to ‘Check Fitness’ in order to receive a notification with their fitness values. These are represented on a scale between -100 and 100 as they are internally stored by the game.

This is a script mod and should not conflict with other mods that modify the game’s food and drink items.

It will however conflict with any mods modifying the following tuning (contains settings for how sims gain weight):
You will have unexpected results if using this with mods that implement metabolism or override fitness settings.
