People of every society have their own distinct lifestyles and eating habits.

Its a well known fact that people from western world consume 2 to 3 times more food per capita than people from eastern countries.

This can be attributed to different cultures, income levels and difference in prosperity of the countries.

Peter Menzel came up with an amazing idea of capturing a week of groceries in different countries all over the world.

He traveled around the globe and observed people’s one week grocery.

In other words. Some of us are fat greedy so&so's while the rest of the world starves.

Their next survey should be on people's waist lines. The UK and US would win by a landslide.

exactly what they did at the library by where I used to live

They posted the photos and alongside the photos, a description of each family and national statistics on calorie consumption and obesity. And no, the US and UK have competitors from afar in this area.
