At a Glance, What the Average American Eats in a Year

How much meat do you think the average American man or woman eats in a year? Well, the great news is that we are consuming more fruits and vegetables than meats. The not so great news is that we are gobbling up a ton (well, actually about a quarter of a ton) of dairy products. That can definitely increase our cholesterol. Check out the graphic below and see how much all that soda and french fries add up to!
