We are happy to say that we took some time off over the holidays to spend time with family and relax a little bit away from the office. We hope that most of you enjoyed your holiday break and had a restful holiday time between the Christmas and New Year holidays. That said, we had some time to do a little holiday reading over this period and we read an interesting article about what and how much Americans ate this past year.
Most Americans can say anything we want about eating healthy and watching our weight but the average American ate 1,996 pounds – or nearly a ton of food this past year in 2011. This is an estimate of how much – by weight – the average American eats over the course of one year.
If you are like us this (just) past holiday season you probably ate too much at the family dinners, parties, and get-togethers so let this article shed some perspective on what the typical American diet looks like over the course of one year. We thought this might be a fun little read to start the work week and the new year in 2012.
Happy New Year everybody!
