We're Not Only Eating More, But More Often print | close window


A new study indicates Americans are continuing to eat more calories as well as eat more frequently throughout the day. According to the findings, the number of meals and snacks consumed daily rose from 3.8 in 1977 to 4.8 in 2006. Additionally, as compared with 1977, American adults were consuming 570 more calories daily by 2006. The study also revealed that Americans are now consuming 220 more calories each day directly from sugary soft drinks. The increased availability of easy to obtain foods that tend to be less healthy (fast food chains), the lack of regular consistent sit-down meals (increasing frequent grazing), increased consumption of sugary drinks and other lifestyle changes are largely to blame.
