Americans are eating more than ever. And the trend is only going to get stronger. So what’s the deal? What are we eating? How much of it do we eat? What’s driving the trend? We want answers. Here are some facts and stats about that may surprise you.
When it comes to eating healthy, the average American doesn’t care. Americans eat junk food. They eat fast food. They eat cheap, processed foods. The list goes on. And the sad truth is, we can do nothing about it.
If you want to eat healthily, you must start changing your mindset. It would help if you thought differently. It would help if you looked at things differently. In other words, you need to live differently.
It’s going to take some effort. You might have to sacrifice a little bit of your lifestyle. But the payoff is worth it. You’ll feel better, you’ll look better, you’ll live longer, and you’ll be able to enjoy life more than ever before.
I’m not telling you this because I want to sell you anything. I’m just saying this because I want to change your thoughts about food.
You don’t have to be an expert to know that Americans eat too much junk food. The average American now eats an extra 50 calories per day than 30 years ago. This is why it’s time to eat better, and I wanted to share these facts with you. This blog’s first set of statistics is based on the USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) data. The second set of statistics is my opinion as someone who has worked with people struggling with their weight for nearly two decades.
Food facts and stats
We can do a few things to improve the health of the American diet. But we won’t see significant changes until we change how our country eats.
This blog post will review a few ways we can change the health of the average American’s diet.
What’s hot in America?
When you ask Americans what they are into, they usually say something like this.
“I’m into watching Netflix.”
“I’m into going to the beach.”
“I’m into going to Disneyland.”
“I’m into buying stuff.”
By analyzing the data from Google, you can find how much Americans spend on various categories, including fast food, groceries, restaurants, and movies.
If you’re wondering where the money goes, here are the most popular categories, followed by the total amount spent each year.
- Fast Food
- $634.7 billion
- $854.5 billion
- $1.1 trillion
- $8.4 billion
Now that you know where all the money goes, you can take the next step: changing how Americans eat.
In the next section, I’ll explain how you can use this information to influence the American diet.
The most popular foods in America
As a nation, we are eating badly. We are what we eat. There’s no sugar added to the majority of our foods. No preservatives. No artificial flavorings. No artificial colors. No gluten. And, most importantly, no healthy foods.
There are several reasons why this is the case. One reason is that the food industry is too big.
Food companies spend billions of dollars every year on marketing. They can convince us to buy their products, and we believe more than we need. It’s a cycle that needs to stop.
Another reason is that the food industry is too powerful. Food companies can influence politicians who pass laws that benefit their businesses and make regulations that help them.
These laws allow for the creating of unhealthy foods and remove rules that make food healthier.
The third reason is that the food industry is too influential. They have lobbyists in Washington, D.C. that write laws that allow them to market unhealthy foods to the general public.
The fourth reason is that the food industry is too profitable. We don’t have to eat healthily. We can afford to pay exorbitant amounts for foods full of preservatives, chemicals, and other harmful substances.
The final reason is that the food industry is too well-connected. They have the money to hire the best scientists and researchers to study nutrition. They also have access to politicians and lobbyists.
And the worst part? Our government encourages this. We have an obesity epidemic in our country. Children are becoming sicker and sicker.
This is a problem; it is the artist’s time to take action. What’s the average daily diet in America?
The sad reality is that the average American eats a lot of junk. The average American consumes over 400 pounds of food yearly, roughly 2,000 calories a day, most of which is processed junk.
I went to the USDA’s National Nutrient Database to find out what the average American eats.
The data shows that the average American eats 4.1 cups of grains, 3.4 cups of vegetables, and 2.9 cups of fruit.
It also shows that the average American eats 1.5 cups of dairy, 2.7 cups of meat, and 0.8 cups of eggs.
And finally, it shows that the average American eats 3.5 cups of sugar and 0.5 cups of oil.
These figures come from the USDA’s National Nutrient Database, and the data is based on a typical adult diet.
How many Americans are obese?
According to the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, roughly 35% of adults in the United States are obese, more than double the rate in 1980.
What does this mean?
It meanwewe’s obeseItIt’s a fact.
It means the United States is a disease-ridden, food-obsessed nation. It’s a nation where the government can’t keep people healthy but instead forces them to stay sick.
How can this be?
There are two sides to this question.
The first side is easy. The United States is a wealthy nation. And as we know, wealth is power.
So, the wealthy have more money and use it to buy unhealthy foods. They use their power to influence politicians, and they use their ability to control the media.
And they use their power to influence us.
They use their power to convince us to eat unhealthy foods and that they are good for us.
They use their power to influence our minds to believe these foods are necessary.
They use their power to influence our emotions to crave these foods.
