Foto! Câte calorii consumă în fiecare zi oamenii din diferite regiuni ale globului?

În timp ce un bărbat ar trebui să consume în fiecare zi între 2500 şi 3000 de calorii, în funcţie de nivelul de activitate, iar o femeie – între 2000 şi 2500 de calorii , din proiectul realizat de fotograful Peter Menzel, Hungry Planet: What the World Eats, observăm că numărul de calorii consumate zilnic diferă de la o regiune la alta a globului. Există zone unde se consumă prea multe calorii şi altele în care oamenii aportă mai puţin de 1800 de calorii pe zi, limita minimă de calorii pe zi pe care o recomandă unui adult Organizaţia de Alimentatie şi Agricultură a Naţiunilor Unite. Iată mai exact ce a reuşit să surprindă fotograful:

Robina Weiser-Linnartz, a master baker and confectioner with her typical day’s worth of food in her parent’s bakery in Cologne, Germany. (From the book What I Eat; Around the World ion 80 Diets.) The caloric value of her day's worth of food in March was 3700 kcals. She is 28 years of age; 5 feet, 6 inches tall; and 144 pounds. She’s wearing her Bread Queen sash and crown, which she dons whenever she appears at festivals, trade shows, and educational events, representing the baker’s guild of Germany’s greater Cologne region. At the age of three, she started her career in her father’s bakery, helping her parents with simple chores like sorting nuts. Her career plan is to return to this bakery, which has been in the family for four generations, in a few years. She will remodel the old premises slightly to allow customers the opportunity to watch the baking process, but plans to keep the old traditions of her forebears alive.

Camel broker Saleh Abdul Fadlallah with his day's worth of food at the Birqash Camel Market outside Cairo, Egypt. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of his day's worth of food on a typical day in the month of April was 3200 kcals.  He is 40 years of age; 5 feet, 8 inches tall; and 165 pounds. Contrary to popular belief, camels’ humps don’t store water; they are a reservoir of fatty tissue that minimizes the need for heat-trapping insulation in the rest of their bodies; the dromedary, or Arabian camel, has a single hump, while Asian camels have two. Camels are well suited for desert climes: their long legs and huge, two-toed feet with leathery pads enable them to walk easily in sand, and their eyelids, nostrils, and thick coat protect them from heat and blowing sand. These characteristics, along with their ability to eat thorny vegetation and derive sufficient moisture from tough green herbage, allow camels to survive in very inhospitable terrain. MODEL RELEASED.Curtis Newcomer, soldat american, Desertul Mojave – 4.000 calorii

Curtis Newcomer, a U.S. Army soldier, with his typical day’s worth of food at the National Training Center at Fort Irwin in California’s Mojave Desert. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of his day's worth of food in the month of September was 4,000 kcals. He is 20 years old; 6 feet, 5 inches tall; and 195 pounds. During a two-week stint before his second deployment to Iraq, he spends 12-hour shifts manning the radio communication tent (behind him). He eats his morning and evening meals in a mess hall tent, but his lunch consists of a variety of instant meals in the form of MREs (Meals, Ready-to-Eat). His least favorite is the cheese and veggie omelet. “Everybody hates that one. It’s horrible,” he says. A mile behind him, toward the base of the mountains, is Medina Wasl, a fabricated Iraqi village—one of 13 built for training exercises, with hidden video cameras and microphones linked to the base control center for performance reviews.

Din Memon, a Chicago taxi driver, with his typical day’s worth of food arranged on the hood of his leased cab on Devon Avenue in Chicago, Illinois. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of his day's worth of food in the month of September was 2,000 kcals. He is 59 years of age; 5 feet, 7 inches tall; and 240 pounds. Din came to the United States as a young man in search of freedom and opportunity and remains pleased with what he found. He has lived in Chicago for 25 years and has been driving a cab for the past two decades, five to six days a week, 10 hours a day. He knows where all of the best Indian and Pakistani restaurants are throughout Chicago, but prefers his wife’s home cooking above all. His favorites? “Kebabs, chicken tika, or biryani—spicy food,” he says. Tika is dry-roasted marinated meat, and biryani is a rice dish with meat, fish, or vegetables that is highly seasoned with saffron or turmeric.

USA The Long Haul Trucker Conrad Tolby, an American long-distance truck driver, photographed with a typical day’s worth of food on the cab hood of his semi tractor trailer at the Flying J truck stop in Effingham, Illinois. The caloric value of his meals this working weekday was 5,400 kcals. At the time of the photograph Tolby was 54 years of age; 6 feet, 2 inches tall; and weighed 260 pounds. His meals on the road haven’t changed much over the years—truck stop and fast-food fare, heavy on the grease—despite warnings from his doctor. He has more reason than most to watch his diet, as he’s suffered two heart attacks—both in the cab of his truck. The trucker travels with his best friend and constant companion, a five-year-old shar pei dog, named Imperial Fancy Pants, who gets his own McDonald’s burger and splits the fries with Conrad. From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets. (Please note that the calorie total is not a daily caloric average. See his chapter, and the methodology, in the book for more information). MODEL RELEASED. Note: The authors used a typical recent day as a starting point for their interviews with 80 people in 30 countries. They specifically chose not to cover daily caloric averages, as they wanted to include some extreme examples of eating, like one woman's diet on a bingeing day or the small number of calories a herder in Kenya ate during extreme drought. The texts in the book provide the context for the photographs, detailing each person's diet, culture, and circumstance at the moment they were photographed: a snapshot in time. A complete methodology is available in the book.Katherine Navas, eleva, Venezuela – 4.000 calorii

Katherine Navas, a high school student, on the roof of her family’s home in a barrio in Caracas, Venezuela with her typical day’s worth of food. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of her typical day's worth of food in the month of November was 4,000 kcals. She is 18 years of age; 5 feet, 7 inches tall; and 157 pounds. Unlike housing in most of the developed world, the higher the house, the cheaper the rent in the dangerous Caracas barrios. Those living at the top of the steep hillside have to travel the farthest to reach services, shops, and the main street, a trip normally made only in the daylight hours. MODEL RELEASEDMaria Ermelinda Ayme Sichigalo, mama a 8 copii, Ecuador – 3,800 calorii

Maria Ermelinda Ayme Sichigalo, a farmer and mother of eight with her typical day’s worth of food in her adobe kitchen house in Tingo village, central Andes, Ecuador. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of her typical day's worth of food in the month of September was 3800 kcals. She is 37 years of age; 5 feet, 3 inches tall; and 119 pounds. With no tables or chairs, Ermelinda cooks all the family’s meals while kneeling over the hearth on the earthen floor, tending an open fire of sticks and straw. Guinea pigs that skitter about looking for scraps or spilled grain will eventually end up on the fire themselves when the family eats them for a holiday treat. Because there is no chimney, the beams and thatch roof are blackened by smoke. Unvented smoke from cooking fires accounts for a high level of respiratory disease and, in one study in rural Ecuador, was accountable for half of infant mortality.

Lan Guihua, a widowed farmer, in front of her home with her typical day’s worth of food in Ganjiagou Village, Sichuan Province, China. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of her day's worth of food on a typical day in June was 1900 kcals. She is 68 years of age; 5 feet, 3 inches tall; and 121 pounds. Her farmhouse is tucked into a bamboo-forested hillside beneath her husband’s grave, and the courtyard opens onto a view of citrus groves and vegetable fields. Chickens and dogs roam freely in the packed-earth courtyard, and firewood and brush for her kitchen wok are stacked under the eaves. Although homegrown vegetables and rice are her staples, chicken feathers and a bowl that held scalding water for easier feather plucking are clues to the meat course of a special meal for visitors. In this region, each rural family is its own little food factory and benefits from thousands of years of agricultural knowledge passed down from generation to generation. MODEL RELEASED.Chen Zhen, Student, China – 2.600 Calories

Chen Zhen, a university student, with her typical day’s worth of food on Nanjing East Road in Shanghai, China. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of her typical day's worth of food in June was 2600 kcals. She is 20 years of age; 5 feet, 5 inches tall and 106 pounds. Although she doesn’t care for noodles or rice, a special rice roll is her favorite snack: black glutinous rice wrapped around youtiao (fried bread), pickled vegetables, mustard greens, and flosslike threads of dried pork. Zhen and her friends eat at KFC about three times a week, something they couldn’t afford without the company’s coupons. Meanwhile, her father and grandparents, who live in a tiny apartment in northeast Shanghai, go without meat during the week so they can afford to share a special meal with Zhen on her weekend visits.

Neil Jones, the Director of Operations at the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada, with one day's worth of his typical food in the skypod of the tower. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of his day's worth of food on a typical day in June was 2600 kcals. He is 44 years of age; 6 feet, 2 inches tall and 220 pounds. The viewing platform is above the world’s highest revolving restaurant, which revolves 360 degrees. The award-winning restaurant has awe-inspiring views and, for a tourist destination, surprisingly excellent food. The pricey entrance and elevator fee of about $25 per person is waived if you eat at the restaurant, making it cheaper to have lunch than to just see the sights. MODEL RELEASED.Solange Da Silva Correia, sotie de fermier, Brazilia – 3.400 calorii

Solange Da Silva Correia, a rancher’s wife, with family members in their house overlooking the Solimoes River, with her typical day’s worth of food. (From the book What I Eat: Around the World in 80 Diets.) The caloric value of her day's worth of food on a typical day in the month of November was 3400 kcals. She is 49 years of age; 5 feet 2.5 inches tall; and 168 pounds. She and her husband, Francisco (sitting behind her, at right), live outside the village of Caviana with three of their four grandchildren in a house built by his grandfather. They raise cattle to earn income—and sometimes a sheep or two to eat themselves—but generally they rely on their daily catch of fish, and eggs from their chickens, for animal protein. They harvest fruit and Brazil nuts on their property and buy rice, pasta, and cornmeal from a store in Caviana. They also purchase Solange’s favorite soft drink made from guarana—a highly caffeinated berry indigenous to the country. MODEL RELEASED.Bruce Hopkins, salvamar, Australia– 3.700 calorii

Hopkins eats moderately, rarely—if ever—eats fast food, and drinks alcohol only when he and his wife go to dinner with friends. MODEL RELEASED.
