Study Finds the Typical American’s Diet Will Make You Sick

American Diet Will Make You Sick

Earlier this week the Center of Disease Control published a new report stating that although Americans are living longer these days, they are still getting fatter.

It’s no secret that the American population has terrible diets and eating habits than any other country in the world. It seems that over the course of the last 20 years it has become a population of animals trying to sustain itself on convenience store fare and fast food.

A new report based on data compiled from government agencies like the Food and Drug Administration and the Department of Agriculture discovered that Americans are consuming far more junk food than what is recommended. With an average yearly intake of caloric sweeteners being nearly 142 pounds, and almost 86 pounds of fats and oils, it’s no wonder that the American population has found itself in an obesity crisis.

Wait until you see how many pounds of pizza and french fries are being consumed. The following list will either astonish you or make you sick to your stomach, so loosen your belt by a loop or two, grab some Cheetos and read on.

What the Average American Eats Per Year:

  • French Fries – 29 pounds
  • Pizza – 23 pounds
  • Ice Cream – 24 pounds
  • Soda – 53 gallons
  • Artificial Sweeteners – 24 pounds
  • Sodium – 2,736 pounds
  • Caffeine – 0.2 pounds
  • Calories — 985,500
