How much does a human eat during a lifetime?
There has never been any research done into how much the average person consumes in a lifetime. Also, this quantity will differ quite a bit depending on whether we are talking about someone in Africa or someone in Europe. Researchers in the US have made a pretty exact calculation of what an average American consumes every year – a little more than 905kg of food. If you take the average lifespan of 78 years into consideration, you would end up with about 70 tons of food for 1 American. The largest part of that is dairy. An average American will eat on average 22’355kg of milk, yogurt, cheese and ice cream; 8’221kg of meat, fish and eggs; and 6’801kg of nuts; 15’545kg of veggies; 3’026kg of oil and fat; and 5’008kg of sugars.
