In his book Hungry Planet , Peter explores both the cultural differences of diets around the world as well investigating how prosperity and poverty influence the diets of different nations. The age-old practice of sitting down to a family meal is undergoing unprecedented change as rising world affluence and trade, along with the spread of global food conglomerates, transform eating habits worldwide.
HUNGRY PLANET profiles 30 families from around the world--including Bosnia, Chad, Egypt, Greenland, Japan, the United States, and France--and offers detailed descriptions of weekly food purchases; photographs of the families at home, at market, and in their communities; and a portrait of each family surrounded by a week's worth of groceries. Featuring photo-essays on international street food, meat markets, fast food, and cookery, this captivating chronicle offers a riveting look at what the world really eats.

I don't believe we have posted this here before.
I might be wrong tho, please feel free to post the link to the article if we have. I believe he might be referencing this? No, I concur. This has been posted before It was posted on www. Did you see the Australian family with all hat meat on the table - they were ALL extremely overwesight - whilst allthe other regions had little meat and lots of veggies and looked healthy - i was especially tripped out by the regions that had no kitchen or tables at all and were sitting on dirt floors And Americans need as much of that exposure as possible I would have missed this interesting study otherwise if hadnt been for the repeat post.
Besides, WHO SAID awesome articles online should be posted just once - how is that narrow minded concept supposed to reach billions of mindsets??? The Mongolians were eating "meat. FYI, meat doesn't make you fat. Sugar does. I don't think that Menzel wanted to let people know through his photos that people in the third world have less to eat than people in the first world- you can see that by turning on CNN. These photos look at people and their food from a cultural point. For Americans, like the British, processed "junk" is a staple in their diet, while more health conscious nations, like Italy, France, Turkey, lean towards organic, and most importantly, WHOLE foods.
These photos are about culture though food. The Australians that you mentioned are fat because they buy frozen "Fish Fingers". There cannot be any fish in products labeled Fish Fingers. I'm agree with you, sugar is the enemy, alongside with procesed food. It's better to eat a frugal meal, as many poor people does, but without artificial ingredients, than to eat a big amount of procesed food, as we do in our industrialized countries. Actually, research it, too much meat, which western culture typically eats too much of does add to weight and other health issues.
Sugar does not cause obesity. Not all Americans eat like you see pictured and the same goes for the other countries too. Actually a lot of it has to do with corn syrup!! Yes sugar also but corn syrup is worse for you. Please tell me you're getting your information from a friend or something and this wasn't done by your own research.
I'm a nutrition major graduating in a month and I have to completely disagree with you. Please cite me a credible peer reviewed article citing MEAT as being the main factor in obesity.
