What Americans Eat in a Year

Graphic here. We eat 2000 pounds of food each year, or 2700 calories per day.
  • A gallon per week of soda. I drink well more than that, but only diet soda.
  • Almost a pound per week of corn syrup, almost 3 pounds of caloric sweeteners, and a pound and a half of oils and fats.
  • Half a pound a week each of french fries, pizza, ice cream, and non-caloric sweeteners
  • 250 mg of caffeine per day, the equivalent of:
    • 26 oz of Starbuck's Grande Latte or Red Bull
    • 60 oz of Diet Coke or....
    • 400 oz of chocolate milk
