Purpose
-------
The purpose of this guide is to explore the different food items available in
Super Smash Bros: Melee.  The food items can be confusing to many people as
each item of food restores a unique amount of health.  A common rule of thumb
applied is that the larger the item in real life the more health it restores in
the game.  This rule is largely true, but through experimentation I have been
able to determine the exact amount of health restored by each item.  All the 
items shown if the food picture in the guidebook have been accounted for.  I
did not use a guidebook to obtain the percentages, I experimented myself.

Food Trophy Description
-----------------------
Trophy obtained by playing over 1000 vs. mode matches:

"These food items will restore your health when you eat them. There are 28 
different types of food, and the nutritional value and yumminess quotient 
differs slightly with each type. Party Balls tend to hold the largest amount of
food items. You may be vulnerable when gorging yourself, but you do need to eat
to survive."
