23 Photos Of People From All Over The World Next To How Much Food They Eat Per Day

Posted May 04, by Beej Rudd

Photographers Peter Menzel and Faith D’Aluisio, who also happen to be married, traveled around the world and met people from all walks of life.

During their time with these people, they asked them to pose for photographs with their daily diets in front of them. The craziest part about the entire project is the caloric intake difference between people of different walks of life.

My mother worked for NASA back in the day - he is in Space so he has a lot of prepackaged foods with correct balance of protein, complex carbs, grains, nuts etc to keep him healthy based on the weightless environment of Space.
Same with the US Soldier ...looks like a lot of pre-packages foods to keep him healthy and to keep his energy up with all the heavy work he has to do.
The very first woman in Africa consuminhg what 900 calories a day is the worse off. A female adult needs about 2500 calories a day in order to be healthy. She is on the verge of starvation. I think this explain why poor people are kind of dragging … you need the right foods to have the energy to get up and do something.
IMO the Chinese’s lady with all those veggies of 1900 calories is doing okay … considering.

The Masai chief. 800 calories a day No wonder they're so lanky.
I'm on an exercise and nutrition program right now to lose weight and I need to not exceed 1600 calories per day, which can be challenging some days.

We have such a sedentary lifestyle here...im sure we would be ok to eat more calories if we didnt

i currently do 1350-1750, but that's because i want to lose weight...but i also burn 3100 calories usually from exercise each week
